Vitamin Mesotherapy is a complexion-brightening procedure that fights the signs of ageing. It uses a cocktail of nutrient rich vitamins that are fed directly into the skin to improve texture and tone.
Mesotherapy involves the injection of a specially prepared mixture of vitamins, amino acids and medications, placed just millimetres under the skin into the problematic area. The actual combination of ingredients injected into the mesoderm (or surface layer of the skin) during Mesotherapy is dependent on the problem being treated. In general, the substances used can include: a local anaesthetic, and products that may reduce inflammation and treat veins, muscle relaxants, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, hormones, and hormone blockers; to name but a few.
Mesotherapy As A Skin Rejuvenating Treatment
Mesotherapy is a medical technique devised in the 1950s by a Frenchman called Dr Michel Pistor. It was first used to treat such conditions as rheumatism, sports injuries, and for the improvement of blood circulation. Now it is used for effective anti-ageing benefits.
This treatment aims to replace minerals, vitamins and amino acids that are found in lower levels in skin as we age.
What happens during the treatment and how long will it take to recover?
Treatment may be carried out immediately after an initial consultation at which point you will be informed as to how many treatments you will require and whether you will be a suitable candidate for the treatment. It’s important to establish your skincare concerns to identify whether this treatment is suited to your needs.
After the treatment, you can return to normal activities although you may have some red marks over your face which should disappear within 24 hours.
Unsightly lumpy, bumpy cellulite affects more than 90% of women. Each year, we spend a small fortune on the latest miracle in a bottle that promises dramatic results. Unfortunately, applying a lotion to the surface of the skin will never achieve the desired outcome of dimple free thighs. The congested tissue that causes cellulite is too deep for any cream to penetrate.
Mesotherapy works by directly targeting the network of tight tissue fibres that trap swollen fat cells resulting in cellulite. Using fat metabolising agents to soften and break up this network, fat is then moved away by increased circulation in the area.

• Multiple treatments required
• Minimally invasive
• Minimal discomfort due to numbing preparations
• No recovery time
A minimum course of Mesotherapy (e.g. a mild case of cellulite in a small area) is 10 sessions. These are normally performed as 2 sessions per week.
Your treatment may be carried out immediately after an initial consultation. It takes approximately one hour to complete. Some people find that the vitamins injected can make them feel a little lightheaded for a few minutes after treatment so we encourage you to sit, relax and enjoy a cup of tea before leaving.
Are there any side effects?
A common side effect of Mesotherapy is bruising, which generally resolves after a week. Mesotherapy can be a little uncomfortable in some areas, but not painful. It is best to avoid contact with the sun or extremes of heat directly after treatment.
*Please note that results and side effects are unique to each individual and results cannot be guaranteed.
What is cellulite mesotherapy and does it actually work?
Mesotherapy was originally pioneered by the French physician, Dr. Michel Pistor in 1945. Since its introduction, it has gained widespread attention for the treatment of medical conditions and more recently, for cosmetic purposes. Mesotherapy involves using a tiny needle to inject small amounts of homeopathic medicine beneath the surface of the skin. This treatment aims to break down cellulite and improves circulation. The addition of Vitamin C to the mixture encourages the tone and quality of the overlying skin.
Mesotherapy softens and breaks up the network of tight connective tissue fibers that trap swollen fat cells and result in bumpy cellulite. It softens this fat which is then moved away by the increased circulation in the area.
You and your cellulite:
The medical term for cellulite is Dermatomyoliposclerosis (DMLS). Cellulite commonly appears on the hips, buttocks and legs; however mesotherapy can be used on all areas of the body including the top of the arm. Fat cells are arranged in chambers surrounded by connective tissue called septae. As water is retained, fat cells held within the perimeters of this area expand and stretch the connective tissue. Eventually this connective tissue contracts and hardens (a process called sclerosis) holding the skin at a non-flexible length, while the surrounding tissue continues to expand with weight, or water gain. This results in areas of the skin being held down while other sections bulge outward, resulting in the dreaded lumpy “orange peel” appearance.
In women, fat cells on the lower part of the body store fat six times more readily than those on the upper body. They also release them six times less readily.
