Needle mesotherapy is one of the most effective and popular treatments used in aesthetic medicine. Its wide application supports both men and women in the fight against skin aging, lack of elasticity, excessive hair loss, cellulite or even excess fat tissue. Despite the "terrible" needle used in this procedure, the popularity of the procedure does not decrease, on the contrary, patients themselves ask about mesotherapy.
What is needle mesotherapy?
Needle mesotherapy is an aesthetic medicine treatment with many applications and consists in injecting the skin with nutrients, vitamins and stimulants. These cocktails are individually selected to the needs of the patient's skin. Punctures are made with a thin needle, punctually in selected places. Many people associate needle mesotherapy with a treatment strictly for the skin of the face, neck and cleavage. Injections are also performed to remove stretch marks, cellulite and adipose tissue.
Needle mesotherapy - application
The treatment is performed to eliminate scars and signs of aging of the face, eye area, neck and cleavage. The treatment stimulates the metabolism of skin cells and the production and reconstruction of collagen fibers, as a result, the elasticity and firmness of the skin improves, and wrinkles are eliminated. Needle mesotherapy is also a remedy for cellulite - injections improve microcirculation. In the case of stretch marks, substances are introduced directly into the damaged skin. Needle mesotherapy is a frequently performed procedure in the case of hair loss and is designed to nourish and prevent hair loss. The treatment consists in injecting individually selected nutrients into the scalp.
Needle mesotherapy - advantages and disadvantages
Let's start with the advantages, because there are definitely more than disadvantages. The biggest advantage of the procedure is its effects. The skin is visibly firmed, moisturized, nourished and elastic. Another advantage is the speed of visible effects. Of course, it depends on the condition of the patient's skin, but often the first effects of needle mesotherapy are visible after the first treatment. In the case of a scalp treatment, the first effects are visible after one treatment in the form of stopping hair loss. After subsequent treatments, new hair begins to grow back, and the scalp is moisturized and nourished. Another advantage is the universality of the treatment - needle mesotherapy can be used by anyone who feels that their skin needs "refreshing" in the form of hydration and nutrition, for example after weeks of sunbathing on vacation or hours spent in the mountains skiing. Another advantage is the durability of the effects after the treatment. Patients can enjoy great results for a year or even longer. In addition, the needle mesotherapy treatment can be performed throughout the year. However, as you know, no treatments are 100% perfect. What can be considered a disadvantage of needle mesotherapy is that, unfortunately, it is not a relaxing and completely painless procedure. Considering the fact that it is made with a needle, not everyone will be happy about it. The procedure may cause discomfort, especially in people with a low pain threshold. However, there is always a way out - you can use anesthesia in a cream or spray. The disadvantages include the number of treatments. As we wrote above, the effects of the treatment are visible after the first treatment, but to get the best results, it should be repeated several times. In order for the effects of needle mesotherapy to be maintained, additional maintenance treatments should be performed every few months. The last issue that can be classified as disadvantages is the formation of bruises after the procedure. This is not a common phenomenon, but when puncturing the skin, there is a possibility that the needle will damage a small blood vessel and then a bruise will appear in this place, but don't worry - it will go away.
