Mesotherapy is a non-surgical technique in which a variable combination of vitamins, hormones, and enzymes is injected into the middle layer of skin (mesoderm) to brighten and tighten the skin and remove excess fat. It may be combined with PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy, hyaluronic acid, or mesobotox for additional benefits.
Proper hydration is important for every system in the body. If you are well hydrated, your heart doesn’t have to pump as hard to keep blood flowing through arteries and veins, and it helps the muscles to work more efficiently. Staying hydrated can also lower high blood pressure and flush out allergens and toxins.
Water can also improve the appearance of your skin (the largest organ of the body) by keeping it supple and plump, and reducing dullness by removing and releasing dead cells.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that contains vitamins and antioxidants that help with tissue regeneration and stimulate the production of elastic and collagen. Along with that, it binds water molecules and helps skin hold onto moisture, keeping it fresher and more radiant in appearance.
Platelets are one of the three components of blood, along with red and white blood cells. Their function is to help blood clot, and they contain proteins that support cell growth. In terms of therapy, they PRP therapy consists of removing some of the patient’s blood, centrifuging it to separate the plasma from other blood components, and then injecting the purified blood back into the patient. It is extremely safe, because it is the patient’s own blood, so the likelihood of allergies or rejection is virtually nil.
Because it brings additional blood flow to the skin, when used with mesotherapy, it can help minimize the look of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, as well as improve the tone and texture of the skin. It has also been used to reduce hyperpigmentation and scarring.
Mesobotox typically refers to a more diluted strength of standard BOTOX. While BOTOX is used between the brows and in the forehead, mesobotox smooths wrinkles in the central part of the face for a smooth, refreshed look.
During your consultation, Dr. Fechner will determine the optimal treatment area and whether the addition of PRP, hyaluronic acid, or mesobotox would give you the outcome you envision.
The technique involves injecting very fine, short needles under the skin to deliver the “ingredients” in your customized treatment. The length of the needles determines how deeply they will penetrate, and this, too, is variable. In some instances, Dr. Fechner may perform one injection at a time. If the area to be covered is larger, he may choose to use a device with multiple needles that inject the solution to a wider area simultaneously.
The downtime is only 24 to 48 hours, allowing time for the minimal side effects to subside. These may include:
Results are both immediately noticeable and progressive.
As a highly respected, double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Fechner has performed more than 10,000 facial procedures and is on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, where he shares his expertise by educating plastic surgeons in training.
When these tiny muscle groups are carefully targeted, the area relaxes and the skin smoothens, creating a softer and more youthful look. It takes about three days for the results to become evident. To maintain the smoother, fresher look will require re-treatment about every three months.
