Introduction to Mesotherapy in Aesthetic Medicine
This is an excerpt from the article by Dr Sotirios Foutsizoglou who is the tutor for the mesotherapy, advanced dermal filler and botox training courses.
Mesotherapy is a non surgical medical treatment that involves injecting tiny quantities of natural extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals and vitamins into the problem areas of your face and body aiming at dramatically improving or correcting a variety of conditions ranging from lax aging skin to hair loss.
Mesotherapy (from Greek mesos, “middle”, and therapy from Greek therapeia, “to treat medically”) is the practice of using a combination of target specific microinjections into the second layer of the skin in order to deliver healing or corrective treatment.
It can treat a variety of conditions ranging from arthritis and sports injuries to improvement of blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
The French Academy of Medicine recognized Mesotherapy as a Specialty of Medicine in 1987.
The treatment has also been widely used for aesthetic purposes as an alternative or complimentary to traditional non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as Dermal Fillers and Botox Injections.
Mesotherapy is an excellent preventative and corrective treatment for skin ageing as it provides:
• Skin lifting
• Anti free radical action
• Increase in the production of skin matrix proteins (e.g. by administering amino acids or certain synthetic peptides through Mesotherapy infusion there is stimulation of dermal proteins such as collagen, elastin and glycoproteins which, to a great extent, are responsible for the biomechanical properties of the skin)
• Whitening action
• Increase of firmness and skin elasticity
• Cellular proliferation, differentiation and keratinisation along with regulation of fat production
• Anti-inflammatory properties
• Deep hydration
• Cytokines (i.e. signaling molecules used extensively in intercellular communication)
In addition Cosmetic Meso has been proven to give unmatched results in the following problems:
• Ageing skin
• Sagging neck / jowls
• Hair loss
• Stretch marks
There are three main injection techniques used in Mesotherapy:
• Point by point (usually deeper injections used in rheumatology or sports related pathology)
Depending on the problem and the area to be treated a cycle of 3-6 sessions may be required for great results. The treatment can also be combined with other non-surgical treatments. The introduction to mesotherapy course covers anti ageing, cellulite, hair loss and localised fat reduction. If you would like to be a patient for this course contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
