Mesotherapy

What is it ..

Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used in Europe and elsewhere to treat various injuries and medical conditions. This medical specialty targets problem areas with microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Tiny "medicinal bullets" are delivered directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) that are highly specific to the condition being treated. Among its many applications.

Anti- aging Mesotherapy treatments

Mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures. The Mesolift process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. As your skin ages, circulation decreases, and the resulting reduction of oxygen and nutrients hinders your body's ability to flush out toxins. This is what drives premature aging and causes the skin to develop an ashen appearance.

After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. Mesotherapy can be used a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-aging regimens, including botox, laser resurfacing, peels, antioxidants, topical creams and facelifts.

Mesotherapy is also a highly effective rejuvenating treatment. The procedure can be used to tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms and hands. In Europe, women often start treatments in their thirties, but Mesotherapy can prove valuable during any stage of a woman's life.

Body Sculpting Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a procedure used for weight loss and body sculpting to reduce, eliminate and contour specific undesired fat pockets. This method targets the receptors on fat cells that produce lipogenesis (fat production) and lipolysis (fat breakdown). Receptors that break down fat are known as beta receptors; those that create fat are alpha receptors. Alpha receptors are stimulated to produce fat when you ingest food containing carbohydrates, fat, amino acids, hormones or alcohol.

In both men and women, the ratio of alpha to beta receptors is generally 1:1 - above the waist. Below the waist, women have approximately 6 to 8 alpha receptors for every single beta receptor. This is the main reason women have trouble losing fat in their abdomens, buttocks and thighs: their bodies are designed to retain fat in those areas.

How is it done?

At our clinic we use Straight from Paris U225! Our latest acquisition, the French made U225 Injector, is the most sophisticated mesotherapy injector currently available on the market! Using pneumatic (air) pressure, this electric mesogun produces almost no trauma to the skin and is virtually painless!

U225 Meso gun is a mini machine gun for shots. The U225 mesotherapy injector offers dermatologists a new delivery system. It is a single-needle device, which can precisely deliver up to 500 tiny liquid doses a minute just below skin’s surface. It can do hundreds of injections without one bruise and no pain. The cocktail of vitamins and pharmaceuticals used in mesotherapy, a procedure popular in Europe, offers hydrated, plump-looking skin—and would help with fine lines and wrinkles.

Why Mesotherapy?

Prevention – Rejuvenation – Hydration

Mesotherapy is also known as Microneedling, which is the production of thousands of controlled microinjections into the mesoderm (middle layer of the skin) using various pharmaceuticals, medicines, vitamins, amino acids or hyaluronic acid.

Mesotherapy is a treatment for people of all ages! It gives your skin a healthy boost and leaves you looking refreshed and rejuvenated!

How does it work?

Microneedling provides a mechanical stimulation of the skin, which leads to higher concentrations of growth factors and enhanced collagen and elastin production with minimal downtime. The micro incisions in the skin created by microneedling will close in 10 -15 minutes after the treatment resulting in a low risk of infection. A series of treatments are required to achieve optimal effects. Microneedling revitalizes the skin’s appearance and quality without scar formation and a low risk of Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation.

Results

  • Increased hydration of the skin,
  • Diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,
  • Patients describe their skin as having a "healthy glow"
  • Young people benefit from a meso procedure for prevention of fine lines,
  • Provides a healthy boost to the skin in patients of all ages,
  • Diminished appearance of acne scars or stretch marks.

All areas of the body can be injected including the face, neck, chest, hands, abdomen, scalp and thighs depending on the area of concern

We are one of the FIRST clinic in Canada to offer this advanced technology. The U225 is the ideal injector for the face, especially around sensitive areas like the eyes, nose and lips, although it can be used all over the body. It creates thousands of micro-injections which guarantees the absorption of product into the skin’s layers, for maximal effects.

The effectiveness and excellent safety profile of electrical microneedling have resulted in this technique rapidly becoming a frontline medical esthetic treatment for skin rejuvenation and scar treatment in Europe and Asia – and now in Canada!

MesoCellulite 􏰁 MesoSculpt 􏰁 MesoLift 􏰁 MesoGlow 􏰁 MesoBoost

Mesotherapy is one of the most exciting body-sculpting and fat elimination treatments available today, and is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic surgery. This breakthrough technology can successfully shrink or eliminate fat cells in your body, reduce cellulite and rejuvenate your face and neck. Many names have emerged with the surge in the popularity of Mesotherapy. Following is what you need to know about the various Mesotherapy discipline that your patients may ask for:

MesoCellulite

Approximately 90% of women, over the age of 20, struggle with the appearance of cellulite on their body. Cellulite occurs largely as a result of poor circulation; blood pools around fat cells and the pressure exerted on these cells cause the bunching appearance regardless of weight or age.

MesoCellulite is a form of Mesotherapy that helps to eliminate cellulite by helping to increase circulation. The injected minerals breakdown the walls of fat cells which releasing the stored up fat into the body where it is then eliminated, and proper circulation in that area returns. Providing patients maintain a proper diet and fitness regimen, results can be considered permanent.

MesoSculpt

MesoSculpting is a similar to process to MesoCellulite, but focuses on localized regions of fat that build up on areas such as the arms, hips, abdomen, thighs, neck or chin. A series of MesoSculpt injections, which involves the use of PPC, allows the fat to be broken down and slowly eliminated from the body, with results that are measurable in inches.

MesoSculpt is used to reduce or eliminate the fat pads under the eyes that cause older eyes to look "baggy". It can also be used to reduce the fat under the chin and around the cheeks, giving a leaner, younger look to the face and neck. For spot weight reduction in the waist it can be used to reduce the abdominal, hips and buttocks fat deposits.

MesoGlow

Our face is one of the few regions on our body in which patients desire a plump, full appearance, as it equates to youth and vitality. Unfortunately, as we age we loose volume in our face, a process which is accelerated by sun exposure. Though Mesotherapy has gained prominence as a fat reduction treatment, it may also be manipulated to replenish fat in areas such as face and neck.

MesoGlow treatments infuse the dermis layer of skin with hyaluronic acid, collagen-stimulating minerals and anti- oxidants to nourish skin and return it to the radiant, firm, glowing complexions of their youth.

MesoLift

Meso-Lift is another anti-aging technique to help maintain a healthy glowing skin and it is particularly excellent for those fine lines that fillers, such as Restylane, cannot correct.

Mesotherapy skin rejuvenation or “Mesolift” infuses your skin with hyaluronic acid (body's natural filler substance), retinoic acid, potent vitamins, and anti-oxidants to restore the hydrated plumpness and fresh appearance of your skin. The treatment actually rejuvenates, revitalizes and tightens the skin. Even the physical treatment itself has been shown to promote production of collagen and elastin and stimulate the metabolism. The Meso-Lift is usually performed in an initial series of 3 to 5 treatments (sometimes more), spaced out one or two weeks apart. The results are maintained by touch-up treatments once or twice a year. Some patients may not need any touch-up treatments for many years.
