There are 2 main ways to perform Mesotherapy, the list of procedures include:
Injectable Mesotherapy – Before Mesotherapy treatment begins, topic anesthesia will be applied to the patientto numb the area to be treated. Once the area is numb, the procedure will begin with a fine needle being injected with the specific formula into the area to be treated. The needles penetrate the body at a small depth. The number and strength of the injections depend in the condition. In some situations, a technique of “multi-pricking” will be used, where there is a number of superficial injections are made at a specific site, this can be done using a Derma gun device or done using the hand. Following the injections, the fat is emulsified into fatty acids and burned off as energy or it is metabolized. Once all the area to be treated is injected with the formula, the treatment will end. The treatment will take around 30 minutes to perform and there is an additional 30 minutes needed for the topical anesthesia to numb the area to be treated.
Dermapen / Dermaroller Therapy – The practitioner will apply topical anesthesia to the skin before the treatment begins to numb the skin, to minimize any discomfort. It will take around 30 minutes for area to be treated to numb. Once the skin is numbed, the dermapen/dermaroller will be applied to the skin, being moved in a series of up and down the skin. This will take around 30 minutes to perform. A standard dermaroller contains around 200 tiny needles and a standard dermaroller contains around 12 – 30 tiny needles that penetrate the outer and inner layers of the skin. This procedure can cause tiny wounds to occur on the skin with very little bleeding and will heal in time normally. For the first application it may take 2 – 3 days for the redness to disappear but in the next applications the redness will go away a lot faster (around 1 day or less).
