The aging process and other factors can contribute to your skin’s unpleasant conditions, such as loose skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and others. Several cosmetic procedures can be used to correct such conditions. At Liondale Medical, Lionel Bissoon, DO, a New York mesotherapy and cosmetics specialist can help you rejuvenate your skin. Through the less invasive treatment option, you get to avoid long recovery times. You get treated with fewer chances of complications, particularly with a highly experienced provider performing such therapies as Dr. Bisson. Here is more information about the treatment.
This is a non-surgical treatment option that can eliminate some complications such as aging signs, excess weight, and cellulite. The technique utilizes injections of substances such as enzymes, vitamins, and hormones to tighten and rejuvenate your skin and remove excess fat. Although the treatment was initially used for pain relief, it has gained more popularity in managing skin complications and can be used for several purposes, as mentioned earlier.
How it Works
Mesotherapy applies a needle technique where several fine needles are used in a series of injections targeting your skin’s middle layer (mesoderm). The idea is to correct some underlying complications such as circulation issues contributing to skin defects.
The treatment does not apply a standard formula, and your provider may use different solutions depending on your particular case. It may include:
- Hormones such as thyroxine and calcitonin
- Prescription medications such as antibiotics and vasodilators
- Herbal extracts
- Enzymes like hyaluronidase and collagenase
- Minerals and vitamins
How You Prepare for Your Treatment
Your mesotherapy treatment begins with a consultation procedure where your provider will evaluate your condition and suggest if you are eligible for the process. You can also learn what to expect from your provider and also what to do for your preparations. Your provider may request you to avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin for about one week before your treatment. Such medications can increase your bleeding and bruising risks during the procedure.
As mentioned earlier, mesotherapy may involve several sessions where several special needles will be used for every session. You will get a series of injections, and your provider may attach the needle in a machine gun to deliver multiple injections. Depending on your condition, the injections can be given at the depths of 1-4 millimeters into your mesoderm. Your provider can inject the needle at an angle or flick their wrist very quickly while placing the needle into your skin. With each injection, a tiny drop of the treatment solution is placed into your skin.
You may require several sessions to arrive at your desired results, depending on your condition. You can expect to go back to your provider about 3-15 times to manage your condition effectively. You will get the injections every 7-10 days initially, but the treatments can eventually be done once a week or a month as you begin to experience improvements. You will start to notice improvements gradually after several treatments depending on the severity of your condition. Note that the effectiveness of mesotherapy depends on the condition treated and may not be effective for some skin complications. However, your provider will let you know if the procedure is correct for your state.
