In the context of medical cosmetics many promises are made. Mesotherapy on the other hand is a scientifically-based and highly effective way of improving the skin’s appearance. The collective term refers to diverse, medically sound treatment methods for rejuvenating and enhancing the skin.
Developed in 1958 by French doctor Michel Pistor (1924-2003), the mesotherapy treatment has since embarked on a triumphal worldwide journey and been continually perfected alone the way. It contains elements from acupuncture, neural therapy and reflexology and was further developed by Swiss dermatologist Dr. Philipp Simonin (1943) in the early 1980s as a treatment for cleansing deep wrinkles and enhancing skin texture. Today, this very pleasant treatment has become a classic therapy in the field of aesthetic and cosmetic medicine, and its results have already thrilled large numbers of patients.
What effect does mesotherapy have and how is it carried out?
Mesotherapy emits active impulses to boost collagen synthesis. Using either electronic waves or needling techniques the attending doctor carries out very precise micro-invasive interventions into the skin’s deep layers. The healthy upper layer (epidermis) remains unscathed. The controlled treatment releases growth factors that stimulate the new production of collagen and elastic fibers. The process of smoothing wrinkles and tightening the skin takes place quickly and painlessly. There is no permanent structural damage to the skin whatsoever, the healing phase is short and you will soon be able to admire the fascinating treatment results.
Dr. Yusuf Yildirim Aesthetics offers three varieties of mesotherapy:
Electroporation is the term use to describe needle-free mesotherapy which is non-invasive and therefore very gentle. With this type of treatment the skin is rejuvenated using electronic waves that create intercellular channels. It is through these fine ‘floodgates’ that active substances such as hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins can pass in a controlled form into the skin’s deep layers. Electroporation can be carried out as a warm or cold treatment.
- Electroporation in combination with needling
By combining electroporation with the needling technique the desired effect is multiplied. At the end of the needling process the gentle mesotherapy provides welcome cooling while other penetrated substances boost skin tightening and the smoothing of wrinkles, and enhance the skin’s appearance.
- Meso needling
The skin tightening and wrinkle smoothing process is even more effective when a special mesotherapy machine is used (e.g. Mesotherapy Vital Power). By means of targeted injections, high quality, regenerative substances, such as growth factors, antioxidants, meso-hyaluronic acid and vitamins, penetrate the skin’s deep layer (dermis). In order for the relatively large hyaluronic molecule to pass through the skin barrier the needling technique is necessary for injecting hyaluronic acid. Having been successfully injected, the hyaluronic acid begins its intense work of stimulating moisture supply from within. As well as this, the micro-injuries caused by the needles increase collagen synthesis. The result is a fresher, firmer and younger looking face. The penetrated substances have a lasting positive effect and improve the skin’s robustness for combating harmful environmental influences.
