Cosmetic Mesotherapy for
Facial & Body Rejuvenation

Treat your Aesthetic Concerns, Naturally

  • What is Cosmetic Mesotherapy?

Cosmetic mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves multiple small injections of a customized formula of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, peptides, enzymes, hyaluronic acid and herbs. The targeted formula is injected just beneath the skin surface directly into the problem area with a very short, fine needle. Mesotherapy stimulates the repair of the affected tissue via two main routes- through the synergistic ingredients contained in the customized formula and through the body’s self-healing mechanisms responding to the needle’s micro perforation. It is an all-natural, medical facial!

It’s important to remember that optimal aesthetic results are not achievable without overall health. Our inner health is reflected in our external appearance, so this must also be addressed to obtain effective, long-lasting results. For this reason, other naturopathic strategies may be recommended that target digestion, hormonal support, diet changes, lifestyle changes, mental health, etc. Both your internal and external concerns can be addressed through a complete naturopathic approach!

  • Cosmetic Mesotherapy can help treat many aesthetic concerns, including:

    • Facial skin rejuvenation and anti-aging - dull complexion, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin
    • Facial or body pigmentation issues - melasma, freckles, uneven skin tone
    • Facial or body acne
    • Facial or body scarring and stretch marks
    • Body Rejuvenation and cellulite
    • Hair loss

  • Facial Skin Rejuvenation
    - dull complexion, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin

Premature aging is most often the result of gradual sun damage, but it’s also greatly influenced by exposure to toxins, dehydration, unhealthy lifestyle, hormonal imbalance and poor skin care. As skin ages it loses it’s rich blood supply and collagen/structural framework, which results in fines lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and a dull complexion. Cosmetic mesotherapy for facial skin rejuvenation boosts collagen production, restores the skin structure, enriches the skin’s blood supply, improves skin softness and reduces redness. After a few mesotherapy treatments, your skin will regain a more hydrated, youthful, rested appearance with a reduction in fines lines/wrinkles. It leaves the skin more nourished, toned and revitalized with many patients receiving positive compliments on how great they look and how they seem to glow from within!

Aging is an ongoing process, so as you continue to age new concerns may arise that should be addressed. Mesotherapy can also be used to help prevent skin aging! Again, it’s important to remember that a healthy lifestyle is fundamental to achieving the best possible results and minimizing future concerns.

  • Pigmentation
    melasma, freckles, uneven skin tone

    Mesotherapy can help reduce pigmentation concerns by encouraging sloughing off of old skin cells, formation of new skin cells and overall lightening of skin tone. A specially customized formula is used to stimulate skin renewal, improve luminosity, reduce the appearance of dark spots and create a more uniform, radiant complexion. After a few treatments, skin tone will appear lighter, but pigmentation is a continuous process so greatest results are achieved on a more long-term basis with repeat treatments. Sun damage is the number one cause of pigmentation concerns and therefore adequate sun protection must be implemented to achieve optimal results.

  • Acne

Mesotherapy is effective at reducing sebum (oil) production and killing acne causing bacteria. It helps unblock pores from dead skin cells and sebum, which is where the bacteria loves to grow leading to inflammation and more severe acne formation. Mesotherapy also helps reduce redness, soothe irritated skin and stimulate the healing process.

In-office facial peels are often necessary prior to commencing mesotherapy for acne in order to rapidly reduce the bacterial load on the skin and ensure a more hygienic canvas for injections. This peel contains glycolic acid derived from fruit and is 100% organic.

Mesotherapy protocols for scarring can be used once facial or body acne has cleared to reduce the damage that may be leftover from cystic acne.

  • Scarring and Strech Marks

Mesotherapy helps reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks by increasing blood supply to the skin and stimulating connective tissue repair. After multiple treatments the skin will recover a more uniform, smooth and vibrant appearance.

  • Body Rejuvenation and Cellulite

As the skin on our body ages it loses it’s rich blood supply and collagen/structural framework. This can result in the appearance of untoned skin and cellulite. Mesotherapy stimulates collagen production to help tighten and tone multiple areas of the body including the abdomen, arms/hands, buttocks and legs. Body rejuvenation is achieved by reducing the appearance of cellulite, reducing water retention, combating accumulated fat deposits, firming skin, stimulating fat burning and enriching blood supply to the problem area.

  • Hair Loss

Customized mesotherapy formulas are injected into the scalp to promote hair repair and regrowth. The mesotherapy injections encourage circulation to the area and directly provide nutrients/botanicals to nourish the hair follicles. It can be used for the treatment of hair loss, thinning hair and/or devitalized hair.

  • Cosmetic Mesotherapy FAQ:

How many treatment sessions are needed? This varies depending on the type and severity of the concern, but generally treatments are weekly for 4-6 sessions, then bi-weekly for 2-4 sessions, followed by maintenance treatments monthly to biannually.

How long is each treatment session? This will be dependent on the concern, but generally each treatment takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour to complete.

How quickly are results seen? Results will vary depending on the type and severity of the concern. Generally, changes can be noticed after 2-3 treatments, although some may notice immediate improvements.

Will the results last? Yes, the results will last. Injections are delivered into the middle layer of the skin with nutrients reaching the subcutaneous fat layer which accounts for the more long-term effects seen with mesotherapy. Occasional touch-ups are recommended monthly to biannually depending on the type and severity of the concern.

Is it painful? Pricking, pinching or burning may be felt during injections depending on the patient’s sensitivity level. Patients describe the general facial rejuvenation as painless to mildly uncomfortable. The treatment of specific fine lines and wrinkles is described as moderately to significantly painful depending on the location of treatment. Although painful, this discomfort only lasts as long as the procedure itself. A topical anesthetic may be used prior to treatment to reduce pain and discomfort.

What are the possible side effects? As with any injections, possible side effects include temporary bruising, local irritation, lumps, bumps, infection at the injection site, discolouration and/or mild tenderness at the injection site.

How much will each treatment cost? Cost varies depending on the type of treatment. Please contact us to learn more or book your initial consult.
