Mesotherapy is is a procedure which was first described by the French physician, Michel Pistor. Ever since the procedure has been widely used in various areas of medicine from orthopedics, sports medicine to cosmetics.
The treatment was recognized by the French Academy of Medicine as an integral part of conventional medicine. It is now one of the most popular treatments in Europe and South America with applications in facial aesthetics, the treatment of cellulite and fat reduction.
In facial rejuvenation, Mesolift will deliver small amounts of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, hyaluronic acid to the superficial layers of the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a glycosaminoglycan (Gags) or mucopolysaccharide. HA is a major component of conjunctive tissue that is actively manufactured by fibroblasts.
HA takes an integral part in proliferation, migration and differentiation of keratinocytes and takes part in all regulating exchanges. Provides extra cellular matrix space for the nutritional exchange, captures free radicals and with its fast metabolism (half life of 15 days) contributes to dermis renewal and elimination of harmful compounds from the skin. The natural loss of skin thickness that various authors estimate at 6% per decade is mainly related to loss of hyaluronic acid. Supplementing HA by direct injection makes it possible to reconstitute the skin thickness and to fight against volume loss. Hyaluronic acid also acts on angiogenesis by supporting the proliferation of endothelial cells and thus allowing better cutaneous vascularization.*
The addition of vitamin A to this mixture will help to control the growth of the epidermic cells, keratinisation, and increase thickness of the dermis.*
Vitamin E is an antioxidant and helps maintain the integrity of tissues by opposing the formation of free radicals.
Vitamin C stimulates synthesis of collagen and inhibits production of melamine.
Vitamin B group is essential to the good biological balance of the skin.
Vitamin K plays an important part in regulation of microcirculation.
Aminoacids. Aminoacids are stable, water-soluble compounds which constitute the structural molecular elements of proteins. There are 20 essential amino acids and a certain number of nonessential amino acids. Together, they form polypeptides which represent the base of tissue architecture, consequently that of the skin. A specific amino acids complementation makes it possible to restructure or even repair aged skin.
Minerals and Coenzymes. Coenzymes are organic compounds that combined with an enzymes play an essential role in the action of enzymes. They are thus primarily “activators” of a biochemical reaction. Direct introducing coenzymes into the dermis tissue supports biochemical reactions and increases the speed of tissue rebuilding. Nucleic acids. Nucleic acids are represented by ribonucleic acids (RNA) and the deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA). Their function is extremely complex. Nucleic acids carry information that makes it possible to control the synthesis of proteins. In fact, they have a role of controlling the way in which various amino acids are assembled to form a given polypeptide. Transcutaneous complementation of nucleic acids stimulates synthesis of important skin proteins
The injections are very superficial and typically not at all uncomfortable. Multiple tiny punctures are made every 2-4 mm apart. This treatment may stimulate cellular activity by the introduction of all these nutrients. The local metabolism and circulation can be improved and ultimately fibroblastic activity with collagen production. The skin should appear more hydrated, brighter and firmer.*
While treatments vary per client it is typically advisable to have 3-4 treatments delivered every two weeks and then a three treatments delivered once per month. Maintenance is recommended.*
**Results may vary. Unless noted otherwise, testimonials are of real patients who have completed treatment(s.) Before and after images reflect real results from real patients, although individual results may vary. Statements estimating treatment duration and the amount of treatments required are based on the typical experience of patients of Park Avenue Medical Spa, however, duration and amount of treatments needed may vary per client.
