Mesotherapy in London

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical treatment that transports essential vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and minerals directly into the skin. The process neutralises the damaging effects of free radical damage to fight signs of ageing, rejuvenate the complexion, and promote overall skin health.

It’s also a popular treatment for those who suffer from acne scars; the blend of ingredients can improve post-inflammatory pigmentation and enhance collagen levels to help repair pitted scars.

The role of your skin barrier function

The skin’s barrier function plays a vital role in protecting your skin from environmental aggressors such as pollutants, UV damage and irritants. When working optimally, your skin counteracts the harmful free radical damage that scavenges your healthy skin cells. However, with ageing and the use of harsh chemicals and products, your skin cell barrier function becomes compromised and weakens.

Lipids made up of cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acid form the barrier to prevent microorganisms and irritants entering the skin and protect it from Transepidermal water loss. When weakened, the skin can become dry, irritated and inflamed.

Mesotherapy is one way to encourage the restoration of your skin cell barrier function and restore your natural moisturising factors, to help bring your skin back to optimal health.

Mesotherapy Treatments In London

What does the treatment involve?

During your consultation, we will discuss your skin concerns to assess the substances we will administer through your Mesotherapy treatment.
Before your treatment, we may apply a topical numbing cream to your skin.
Through a series of fine injections, a bespoke blend of peptides, growth factors and antioxidants are delivered into the mesoderm (the middle layer of the skin) from between 1-4mm beneath the surface to improve skin quality and function.

How does Mesotherapy work?

With over 60 different ingredient combinations, the Mesotherapy treatment is adaptable to your skin’s needs.
Application of topical skin care is limited in its effectiveness, as some ingredients are unable to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. For example, hyaluronic acid is an ingredient that can hydrate the skin. However, its molecular weight means it is too large to penetrate the skin through topical application unless there is some form of transportation system involved such as Mesotherapy.
Mesotherapy transports the essential nutrients your skin is lacking to optimise your skin cell barrier function by improving hydration levels, thereby helping to desensitise your skin and reduce signs of premature ageing.

Who is the treatment suitable for?

-Those who have dry, irritated and sensitive skin.
-Those who have unexplained flakiness
-Those who live a busy and fast-paced lifestyle and are lacking essential vitamins and nutrients
-Those who are frequently exposed to UV damage
-Those who are showing premature signs of ageing
-Those looking for overall improvement in skin quality
-Those seeking a rejuvenating skin treatment
– Those with uneven skin tone (i.e. pigmentation)
– Those with acne scars
-Those with cellulite (the results of Mesotherapy used in this way are limited, but it theorised that mesotherapy could improve skin quality and disrupt cellulite-causing fat pockets when injected with enzymes).

When can results be seen and are they permanent?

Results are progressive treatment spaced over several sessions. The results vary from patient to patient depending on the substances used and the skin concerns treated. As the skin starts to improve, there will be more of an interlude between each treatment.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime associated with this treatment.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient, depending on the patient’s skin concerns. Generally, ten sessions will be required. These are typically spaced apart weekly for the first month, every two weeks over the second month, and sporadically from then onwards depending on how your skin responds to treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

This treatment takes approximately 30 minutes-1hour.

Is Mesotherapy painful?

While the treatment sounds as though it might induce pain, the majority of patients do not experience any pain with this treatment. Generally, patients find the treatment mildly uncomfortable, though the ability to cope with pain varies from patient to patient. We can apply a topical numbing cream to minimise any discomfort.

Side effects and risks

You may experience bruising and redness, which generally resolves after a week.
Other possible side effects include (but are not limited to):
• Irritation or allergic reaction to substances injected
• Swelling
• Infection
• Post-inflammatory pigmentation from the injection trauma
