What is mesotherapy?

A mesotherapy procedure consists of multiple injections of microscopic quantities of homeopathic medications as well as vitamins, minerals and amino acids into your skin.  The goal is to replenish all those key ingredients which our skin needs to stay young and healthy. That being said, mesotherapy can also be used to treat cellulite but we will not be talking about that aspect in this article. However, if you wish to learn how mesotherapy can treat cellulite please see the following or feel free to call our rooms on 011 883 3116 and we will gladly assist you.

Most of our patients request mesotherapy to improve the following areas:

  • Hands

Are you a good candidate for mesotherapy?

The substances injected during a mesotherapy session at SAI are natural. This means that it is a procedure suitable for most individuals. Of course, allergies and medical history will be discussed at length during your consultation to ensure your safety.

However, mesotherapy is not the best option if you are looking for a procedure which goal is purely to erase deep lines and wrinkles. To achieve this, you should rather opt for dermal fillers or Botulinum toxin injections which will give you the results you desire. Read more about Botox and dermal fillers treatments

What is a mesotherapy session like?

The mesotherapy procedure at SAI usually takes about 15 minutes and is virtually pain-less which means you will not need an anaesthetic.

During your mesotherapy session, the doctor will administer the chosen ingredients using a hand held device that she will gently pass onto the treatment area(s). Our patients report a mild tingling sensation but no pain.

meso200At SAI, we use the Filorgameso-needling system which is one of the most advanced rejuvenation procedures and gives our patients amazing results every single time. Why we love it so much is because of its unique combination of NCTF and a sterile single-use medical roller, which is endowed with CE marking.

NCTF, the best poly-revitalising complex, with a formulation based on free hyaluronic acid (the key ingredient of dermal fillers) with 53 nutritive elements that stimulate cellular metabolism activity. This means that your skin is injected with the best rejuvenating potion possible!

What’s more, the needles on the handheld device, by causing “micro-injuries” to the skin also induce a highly beneficial process of skin repair, which in turn stimulates collagen production and micro-circulation.

The Mesotherapy Results

Mesotherapy consistently offers our patients natural and progressive results that remain subtle yet noticeable. You will simply look refreshed and healthy but definitely not like you had anything done. The aspect that our patients enjoy most about mesotherapy is that the improvement of your skin’s quality is progressive and accumulative so you can expect to notice constant improvement, months after months.

After your first mesotherapy session, you will notice that your skin is more hydrated and clearer, overall more radiant.

Your mesotherapy course (usually 3 sessions) will rapidly enhance the quality of facial skin but also particularly the skin of areas of the neck and décolleté.
As the weeks go by, you will enjoy a more even skin tone as well as tightening and wrinkle reduction (this is due to the hyaluronic acid).
