Mesotherapy is a technique that delivers serums and acids into the middle layer of the skin. When injected into the dermis our serums work more effectively and last longer. We use two serums, a hyaluronic acid skin booster for general skin health and hydration and vitamin C for pigmentation. A full course of vitamin c injections is required for the break down in pigmentation.
Mesotherapy and skin boosters are very popular at the moment as we are able to directly inject a hyaluronic acid gel into the skin. These acid gels are clinically proven to offer improvements to skin condition, gradually increasing elasticity, improving roughness and reducing the appearance of fine lines and other imperfections such as acne scars.
They are a versatile and effective solution for skin concerns in the face, neck, décolletage and hands, under the eyes is particularly popular with our clients for a boost of hyaluronic acid.
Vitamin C is a revitalising antioxidant solution that is very effective neutraliser of free radicals. Vitamin C inhibits melanin is responsible for unsightly pigmentation and is used in the breakdown of pigmentation to restore the skin to a clearer, more even tone.
Each treatment involves a series of hydrating micro-injections of long lasting stabilised hyaluronic acid gel to deliver immediate and lasting hydration and plumpness to the skin. This hyaluronic acid is soft and absorbs water and brings deep skin hydration to the treated areas, giving it improved firmness, elasticity and smoothness. This manifests outwardly as a wonderful, healthy radiance. The micro injuries created also stimulate collagen formation through the natural skin repair process thus lifting scars further. Traditional skin care products applied on the skin surface can easily be washed away, while Skin Boosters hold water deep in the dermal layer for lasting hydration and improvements to the skin's elasticity and smoothness.
Filler injections have come a long way over the past decade. Once used to primarily enhance your features while restoring lost volume, today they can now also improve skin texture and boost hydration. So, what exactly are the two different types of filler and how do they differ from one another? The main difference is the way the two types of filler are injected. Skin Boosters are injected into the skin to hydrate and improve overall quality while Dermal Fillers are injected underneath the skin's surface to add volume. The product itself is also slightly different. It’s a less complex combination that only includes the hyaluronic acid (water) of dermal filler without the binding compound that provides volume, fullness and lift. When injecting into the skin, the filler is formulated with antioxidants and vitamins causing new collagen and elastin to be produced that result in healthy-looking, glowing and plump skin.
Benefits of Skin Boosters include:
Benefits of Dermal Fillers include:
The treated area may feel slightly tender and appear red and swollen afterwards. These effects will resolve naturally and should be much improved after 48 hours but may take longer to settle. You may experience some minor bruising which may take 1-2 weeks to resolve in some cases. • Use of a cold compress for swelling and arnica cream for bruising may be helpful for resolution. • Avoid any perfumes, fake tan or other harsh chemicals for 72 hours after treatment. • Avoid any makeup for 24 hours after treatment as this can increase the risk of infection. • Avoid rubbing or picking the treated area. • Avoid any skin exfoliation for 72 hours following treatment. • It is important to use a regular moisturising cream around two to three times a day on the treated area. Use more regularly if you feel the skin dry or peeling. • Avoid any products that contain alpha hydroxy acids, retinol, and glycolic acid for at least 7 days after treatment. • Avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, sunbeds and exposure to heat for 72 hours after treatment. These can cause sweating which can irritate the delicate skin and slow down your ability to heal quickly. • Avoid swimming for 72 hours after treatment. • Avoid any excess alcohol or caffeine for 48 hours after treatment. • Wear SPF 30 or greater sunscreen for at least 2 weeks following treatment as your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight afterwards. • Avoid any further cosmetic treatments e.g. Botox or dermal filler for 2 weeks following treatment, or ask your practitioner for advice. • Avoid any hair removal treatments such as waxing for 2 weeks after treatment or until the initial redness and swelling has resolved. • You must seek medical attention and contact your practitioner if you experience any signs or symptoms of infection after treatment. Infection can present as hot, red shiny skin, there may be pus formation and you may have a fever or feel generally unwell. • You must seek emergency medical attention if you experience any severe allergy symptoms or features of anaphylaxis. These may include rash, breathing difficulties and facial swelling.
