When the fatigue of stress begins to make a dent in its natural brightness, you can perform a facial mesotherapy treatment, which gives back its natural shine and firmness. It is a very sought after treatment, although its cost is average since it depends on several sessions.
But what is facial mesotherapy?
This treatment consists of injecting under the skin substances that revitalize the skin, thus preventing facial aging. In addition, this treatment not only rejuvenates the skin, it also brings firmness, elasticity and tonicity to our face.
These incredible substances have an effect similar to that of nourishing cream combined with a moisturizer, but when injected directly into the skin its effect is greater. In short, facial mesotherapy involves injecting vitamins and other nutrients into our face that will help us look younger and healthier.
What do the injected substances contain in facial mesotherapy?
In general terms, these substances are composed of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. They are necessary ingredients to hydrate and nourish skin cells and promote a good production of collagen.
However, other substances are also present, among the most important we have:
- Hyaluronic acid: this is a component that is present naturally in our body, and its role is to act as if it were molecular sponge, capturing up to a thousand times its weight in water, giving the skin a proper level of hydration and healthy appearance.
- When hyaluronic acid decreases over the years, the skin tends to become brittle, thin and begin to form small wrinkles and texture losses. When we are applying this substance in facial mesotherapy, we re-hydrate the skin from the inside.
- Diethylaminoethanol: this substance fulfills a stabilizing and antioxidant role of the cellular plasma membrane, protecting our skin from the damage that is caused by free radicals.
How is facial mesotherapy performed?
This procedure is simple. It consists of applying small vitamin injections, minerals and antioxidants under the skin. This can take between 15 and 20 minutes.
Generally, to have the best results are necessary between 8 and 14 sessions. And the maintenance of this treatment varies according to the type of skin and the age of the person. Generally, sessions are done with a week in between, and results should be maintained with other retouching sessions at least 2 times a year.
What are the advantages of this treatment?
In summary, we can say that the main advantages of facial mesotherapy are:
- A younger, healthier face.
- From the first lesson you will notice how your skin looks much more moisturized.
- It gives the face more uniformity and luminosity.
- Your factions will be reaffirmed and restructured.
Another great advantage is that for this treatment it is not necessary to apply anesthesia, which greatly decreases the risks of side effects. It is completely painless and does not need much recovery time.
But does facial mesotherapy have secondary risks?
Like all treatments, yes. But these side effects are very mild and last for a short time. Usually they appear where the injections are applied. It depends on the type of technique that is used when applied, as well as the substances that were used.
Among the side effects, we can say that there may be a little pain, but this will depend on the type of needle being used. It can also lead to local edema or small bruises where the injection is being given. Allergies may also occur.
Although infrequent, needle cuts can occur, which can be caused by poor patient movement. They may also be due to the inexperience of the specialist who performs the treatment.
These side effects are usually transient and can last 2 to 3 days. Another side effect, but very rare, is that infections appear on the skin by bacteria that are in the environment. It can be serious, but it has a solution. If you experience side effects, you should call your doctor immediately.
Is facial mesotherapy the final and permanent solution against aging?
No. As we have said, it is necessary to carry out retouching sessions at least 2 times a year. In addition, you should take extra care with your skin after a session, such as not going to damp places, not exposing yourself to extreme temperatures or directly in the sun, avoiding: swimming pools, beaches, saunas etc.
Do not forget to apply moisturizing and nourishing creams to take care for your skin. It is an excellent way to complement your facial rejuvenation with creams. They are made of completely natural compounds and provide the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that your skin needs to stay young and healthy.
