Stretch marks reduction and enhancing skin firmness
Treatments that enhance skin firmness can be performed in any area of the body. A frequent indication for treatments is loss of skin firmness, or appearance of stretch marks after pregnancy.
Mesotherapy – cellulite, stretch marks, scars
- Cellulite skin of thighs, abdomen, buttocks, shoulders
- Stretch marks
- acne, post-operative, post-traumatic scars
Mesotherapy is a method of treatment of various skin diseases consisting in injecting small doses of medicinal substances directly into the target areas. Mesotherapy allows to reverse or inhibit many adverse changes.
Treatments are performed only by doctors. Not only the effect of the preparations, but also the puncture of the skin itself (several dozen to several hundred of them are made) are important due to:
- Improvement of skin cell metabolism
- Acceleration of fat cell metabolism
- Stimulation of fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin
- Formation of new blood vessels
- Improvement of microcirculation
- Stimulation of skin regeneration – exchange for new cells
- Inhibiting the formation of harmful free radicals
- Proper skin nutrition
All these aspects are the advantage of injectable mesotherapy over the so-called no-needle mesotherapy.
Mesotherapy will not handle very advanced cellulite to the extent we might expect, but it will reduce its size and “intensity”. People with less cellulite manage to achieve the effect of fully smoothing the skin surface. However, regardless of the scale of the problem, you can count on a very good effect – improved internal fat structure and natural metabolism.
To sum up, mesotherapy can be used for cellulite at any stage, regardless of the area – on the thighs, hips and buttocks, it is suitable for those who complain that their skin is flabby, in poor condition, and has unacceptable appearance.
Is the treatment painful?
Injections are given with a syringe with a very thin needle every 0.5-1.5 cm. After the treatment, there are marks on the skin such as small points or a check pattern – depending on the treatment technique used. Depending on the type of preparation, marks remain visible for 6-72 hours.
The punctures are not very painful. If the patient has low pain tolerance, a cream anaesthetic may be used. It may happen that the needle hits a blood vessel and a small bruise is formed. After the treatment, the skin is massaged, so that the ingredients injected into the skin are evenly distributed. They are effective even a month after the treatments.
When are the effects visible and how long do they last?
- Immediate results – increased skin elasticity, firmness and radiance
- Long-term results – restores skin smoothness and density
You can have injections any time, but it is best to have them in autumn, winter or early spring, because the sun can cause discoloration at the injection site.
Within a few days after the treatment, after the feeling of discomfort has subsided, we recommend performing several drainage procedures, such as lymphatic drainage or lymphatic massage. They will help to eliminate damaged fat cells from the body. Remember to protect the areas after the punctures (e.g. do not tear off the crusts) until they are completely healed. During this period, hygiene is of utmost importance (we advise against visiting swimming pools).
- Allergy, hypersensitivity to the ingredients of the preparation
- Pregnancy, breastfeeding
- Uncontrolled diabetes
- Skin inflammation and active skin infections
- Poor tolerance of the treatment (couperose-prone skin, risk of fibrosis)
- Use of antiplatelets (aspirin)
- Thyroid diseases
- Very rare allergic conditions manifested by erythema, disappearing spontaneously after a few minutes or hours
- Bruising, haematomas – the risk of changes increases if antiplatelets (e.g. aspirin) are used directly before the procedure
- Allergic reaction to the preparation’s ingredients – most often it concerns procaine added to a local anaesthetic, for example in cellulite treatment (it is worth remembering to inform the doctor about all the existing allergies before the procedure)
