is a technique that uses injections of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat.
Michel Pistor, a doctor in France, developed the technique in 1952. It was originally used to relieve pain. In the years since, it has gained popularity in the United States and other parts of the world.
Today, mesotherapy is used to:
*remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
*fade wrinkles and lines
*tighten loose skin
*recontour the body
*lighten pigmented skin
*treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss
The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of skin. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.
How do you prepare?
You might have to avoid aspirin (Bufferin) and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for one week before the procedure. These pain relievers can increase your risk of bleeding and bruising during mesotherapy.
What happens during your appointment?
During each session, you may or may not have numbing medicine applied to your skin. You’ll get a series of injections using a special short needle. The needle may be attached to a mechanical gun to deliver many injections in a row.
The injections can be given at different depths — from 1 to 4 millimeters into your skin — depending on what condition you’re having treated.
You’ll probably need several mesotherapy sessions to get the desired effect. You should expect to return to the clinic between 3 to 15 times. At first, you’ll get the injections every 7 to 10 days. If your skin starts to improve, the treatments will be stretched out to once every two weeks or once a month.

What is Mesotherapy – Micro Needle?
The treatment was pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952. Today, there are many forms of the treatment but as a general principle it uses needles to deliver vitamins, amino acids, fat reduction agents, or other compounds into the mesoderm (mid layer) of the skin. Mesotherapy is an incredibly versatile skin rejuvenation treatment with a multitude of applications. It can be used to rejuvenate the face, neck, décolletage and hands and to reduce fat around the buttocks, arms, jowls and abdomen. It can also be used to treat thinning hair/hair loss, dehydration, dark circles, cellulite and stretch marks.
How Dermapen works?
Dermapen has 12 or 36 needles on the very tip and these needles are the ones that are used to puncture the top layer of the skin as the Dermapen glides over the area being treated. Usually, the Dermapen will be positioned vertically over the skin and when it is turned on, a motor that is found inside the pen will start making the needles to move rapidly back and forth on the skin surface creating the punctures and these needles have been created in such a way that they can rotate in a slight way. These punctures created in the process are usually aimed at opening up the pores for a period of time only.
Dermapen is used mostly for face wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and facial lines. When one is injured and the skin forms a scar, or if they have a stretch mark the body will treat these as though that area was repaired. Therefore having the punctures created in the scar tissue will cause the skin to initiate healing and, therefore, the damaged skin will tend to get eliminated and replaced with new skin. For wrinkles and face lines, basically, the produced collagen and elastin will cause the skin to thicken and also tighten leaving the skin looking youthful.
How does it work?
The treatment is always preceded by the application of anesthetic ointment (remains on the skin for about 30 minutes). Next, we proceed to the fractionation of the treatment area using pulsating needles. In a very precise and controlled manner, we pierce all treated skin. The damage induced in this way stimulates intensive cell proliferation and, as a result, new, healthy skin. The resulting micro channels are also an excellent way of putting active ingredients into the skin – the absorption increases almost a thousand times. This procedure allows deep revitalization of the skin and significantly slows down the aging process.
What are the effects after the procedure?
Immediately after the treatment the skin is slightly swollen, red and tender. There are also small, spot marks on the micro-strokes. The skin usually regenerates within the next few days after the procedure. Over the next days and weeks, the treated area is clearly rebuilt. Wrinkles become shallower, scars and stretch marks less visible. The skin improves its structure, smoothes itself, brightens and thickens.
– Before proceeding with the procedure, eliminate any contraindications, and stop using agents that reduce blood clotting, such as aspirin and do not drink alcohol. (about 1 week before the procedure).
– Immediately after the procedure, avoid rough towels, cosmetics irritating eg on the basis of alcohol, massage and do not eat alohol. It is necessary to wash the skin with mineral water
– Do not use make-up for at least 12 hours after the procedure
– Use a post-treatment cream chosen by a specialist
– Avoid being in the dust, chemical vapors
– Avoid direct contact with animals
– Avoid swimming pool or sauna for 10 days after the procedure
– The procedure should not be combined with other procedures (consultation with a specialist) and with dental procedures
