As we age, our skin loses vital nutrients
as a result of sun exposure, hormonal changes, poor diet
and poor circulation. Mesolift is used to treat and slow
the process of aging. This treatment results in improved
tonicity, elasticity and appearance resulting in a
clear, attractive complexion, radiant, glowing and
DOES MESOLIFT REQUIRE SURGERY?
No, there is no surgery and no “down-time”. You may
return to your daily routine or place of work
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
A series of micro-injections with the mixture is
introduced to the skin.
Mesolift allows the true restructuring of the skin
tissue since the formulation has been fully designed to
favor the different biological reactions of the
architecture of the skin by supplements:
* The vitamins provide an anti-deficiency function
* The amino acids allow better protein construction
* The minerals guarantee the ionic balance of the medium
* The coenzymes activate the biochemical reactions
* The nucleic acids stimulate synthesis
vitamins required for the good exogenous biological
balance of the skin. Below are some examples:
* Vitamin A acts on the flexibility of the skin by
regulating the growth of epidermic cells. By acting on
the keratinization process, it favors cicatrisation and
partially corrects the thinning of the derma due to skin
* Vitamin E is an antioxidant due to its major
anti-radical properties. It maintains the integrity of
tissue by fighting the formation of toxic peroxides.
* Vitamin C helps stimulate the synthesis of collagen
and inhibit the synthesis of melanin.
* Vitamin D is indispensable for the synthesis of
calcium by the direct action on the phospho-calcic
* Vitamin B and its sub-groups are excellent
anti-deficiency substances and are indispensable for the
good biological balance of the skin.
* Vitamin K plays a major role in the regulation of the
Amino acids are stable,
water-soluble and amphoteric compounds that form the
structural molecular elements in proteins. They are the
basis of the tissue architecture of the skin.
Minerals help stimulate
different cell activities and, as a result, improve
different biological metabolisms. This is particularly
true for the skin.
Coenzymes are non-protein
organic compounds. When combined with an enzyme they
improve the speed of metabolic reactions of the
organism. Transcutaneous supplements of nucleic
acids stimulate the synthesis of the noble proteins of
the derma and thereby restructure the entire tissue.
DOES MESOLIFT REPLACE A FACE-LIFT?
No, Mesolift improves
skin tone and texture. Many of our patients report that
their skin feels tighter.
WHEN DO I SEE RESULTS?
Most patients see results
immediately after their first treatment but other
patients can takes weeks to fully take effect.
IS MESOLIFT PERMANENT?
We continue to age. If
you like the results, you will most likely continue with
a few sessions per year.
WHY DO I NEED MORE THAN ONE TREATMENT?
is usually performed in an initial series of treatments
spaced 1 – 2 weeks apart. The effects of Mesolift
treatment are cumulative. Your body will slowly develop
collagen and elastin over time.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
There is a very small
chance of bruising which can easily be covered. Any
potential bruising is minimized using our technique.
WHAT IS SKIN NEEDLING?
Skin Needling, also known as Collagen
Induction Therapy or Facial Mesotherapy, using a skin
needle roller is designed for and to provide
scientifically proven results for the treatment and
management of such conditions including, but not limited
Anti-Aging & Wrinkles
Pigmentation & Sun Damage
Acne, Pimples, Blackheads
Enlarged Pores & Seborrhoea
Hair Loss & Thinning Hair
HOW DOES SKIN NEEDLING WORK?
Skin Needling and Facial Mesotherapy is
most easily performed using a Skin Roller. The Skin Roller causes
multiple tiny pin point puncture wounds to the dermis.
This dermal damage induces the release
of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen
and elastin. New collagen production is the object of ALL skin
resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments.
Skin Needling creates dermal
damage without the removal of the healthy epidermis,
which happens with other resurfacing techniques.
Because the epidermis
is left intact, the healing period is rapid. The
skin does not risk permanent structural damage, sun
sensitivity, skin color loss or hyper-pigmentation.
Micro-needling or skin needling is a
form of Collagen Induction Therapy with the intends
to smooth wrinkles, improve depressed acne scars as
well as reducing the appearance of stretch marks. It's
quickly growing in popularity and is one of the most
successful of skin treatments available. It is a process
that can be carried out clinically as well as in the home.
As the process gains awareness it is important to understand
what micro-needling as well as consider whether it is suitable for you.
The process for micro-needling is carried out
with a roller made up of many miniature needles. The needles
pierce the upper layers of skin up to 2 millimetres
(depending on the needle used). This process has two
major benefits. It successfully stimulates collagen
formation as well as providing a clear topical channel
for creams and gels to be effectively absorbed through the top
most layer (epidermis) of skin. Micro-Needling creates a very minor
trauma which lasts for a short period of time and does not result in
bruising or swelling in the treated area.
The small puncture wound stimulates collagen
production in the dermis layer as breaks some of the blood vessels
directly below the surface of the skin. As the blood clots, it
creates the right environment for collagen and elastin formation.
It is these vital ingredients which assists in the skin appearing rejuvenated.
Although this sounds drastic, the process happens
on a microscopic level and the outward appearance of trauma is negligible.
Clinical use of skin needling involves the use of numbing agents on the skin,
so that the treatment can be carried vigorously with minimal discomfort. The
Skin Needle Roller is intended for extended use at home. It should be used far
more gently over a longer period of time. In this way, it becomes part of your
daily routine and produces the same great results.
Micro-needling is a great choice for people who haven't
had success with any other type of treatment, for those who would prefer
tackling their skin issues in the privacy of the home. In addition, the
use of skin creams or oil products are greatly boosted by using a Skin
Roller as the absorption rate of the skin is raised considerably through
the channels which are created by skin needling through the epidermis.
It has similar results to Laser, Chemical Peels and
Dermabrasion but is far less invasive, which translates to a far lower
risk of complications and quick recovery time. Improvement in the appearance
of scars and lines is achieved through a series of Skin Needling treatments,
spaced 2-3 months apart.
WHAT AREAS OF THE SKIN CAN BE TREATED?
Skin Needling can treat sensitive
areas that other treatments have to avoid, such as below the eyes,
the neck and the back of hands.
HEALING - RECOVERY TIME?
For deeper in office treatments,
the skin is red and swollen for one to two days with a light grazing
over the treated area appearing on day two. Most patients are able to
return to work and normal activities within 48 hours of treatment.
Multiple treatments are usually
necessary to achieve significant improvement in the appearance and
depth of lines and scars. Treatment effects are cumulative and will
usually be seen within 6-8 weeks of each treatment.
In comparison to
prolonged recovery time from laser resurfacing and chemical peels,
the short recovery following Skin Needling makes it an excellent
alternative method of improving lines and scars.
