MESOTHERAPY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
How many treatments do I need?
Like many treatments, a series of approximately 5 sessions is required performed 3 – 6 weeks apart for best results.
How long will the results last?
Mesotherapy has the benefits of immediate and long-term results.
Depending on the type of skin boosters used (type and concentration of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid can vary), the results can be seen as quickly as one week post-treatment. Skin will appear more hydrated and plump due to the direct introduction of hyaluronic acid and other skin-boosting ingredients such as vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.
While the skin benefits immediately from the direct addition of active ingredients, the triggering of the skin’s “healing response” also stimulates collagen and elastin production. The new collagen is formed after 90 days and can last up to 2 years.
Is there downtime?
There is some downtime but it is considered minimal as most clients are able to return to work the next day. You may wear make-up 24 hours post-treatment if you wish to cover up any residual redness.
What to expect during mesotherapy
A topical numbing cream will be applied prior to the procedure make the treatment comfortable. Generally, you should not feel anything when your forehead is being treated. Areas which are more sensitive such as around the mouth (due to a higher density of nerves) you may feel some mild pricking sensation but this is very tolerable for all our patients.
It is normal to expect pinpoint bleeding during the treatment.
What to expect post-mesotherapy treatment
You face will be flushed for the remainder of the day due to the increased blood circulation to the face.
The skin may feel sensitive for a few days post-treatment so we advise you to be gentle when touching and washing your face.
Mesotherapy can cause pinpoint bleeding during the procedure. As the platelets in the blood coagulate to prevent continuous bleeding (this is your body’s normal wound healing response), you will notice tiny dried blood spots sitting on top the skin post-treatment. Most will be washed away during cleansing of the face; others can be easily covered up with make up which can be used 24 hours post-treatment.
You will also notice that your skin will be appear “bumpy” in a grid-like manner as these “bumps” are areas where mesotherapy solution have been deposited in the tissue. It may take a few days for the solution to be completely absorbed by the body and to completely smooth out to the same skin texture prior to your mesotherapy treatment.
