Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between Mesotherapy and Microneedling?
Mesotherapy can be done with the same advanced needling device as our standard microneedling treatment or with the plasma fractional tip; The difference using the microneedle device is the different stamping technique that is used. This technique is crucial to the delivery of your chosen meso serum, which offers an additional layer of benefits on top of your standard needling treatment.
Is it suitable for all skin types?
Mesotherapyis a fantastic treatment that is suitable for all skin types. Some darker skin types (skin types 4-6) may however require two weeks of preparation prior to treatment and this will be advised by your technician. Ask our expert dermal technician about which skin type you are and which meso serum will be best for you!
How long are the mesotherapy treatments and what is the downtime?
Total treatment time is 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the area and there is little to no downtime. Slight redness and warmth to the skin may be experienced after your session, and dryness can be experienced a few days post-treatment.

Why is hyaluronic acid utilized in mesotherapy treatments? Can other active ingredients be used?
Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in the body, where it stimulates the cell renewal process and stores water. This allows the skin to regenerate, revitalize and renew itself. There are many underlying factors that lead to a tired-looking complexion including the natural aging process and daily life stressors. Over time, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid and the skin loses its elasticity, becomes limp, gray and tired-looking. This is particularly evident on the face, décolletage, and hands, which suffer the effects of excessive exposure to the sun, physical activity, and other external environmental influences. During the natural aging process the body is no longer sufficiently supplied with important nutrients for the skin to regenerate itself efficiently. This is where mesotherapy comes in as a preemptive or supportive measure, providing all the necessary ingredients to help the skin recover.
What types of mesotherapy for face are there?
In our office we offer two types of mesotherapy. The first consists of a deep-reaching mesolift specifically designed for lines and wrinkles caused by excessive dryness, where non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid (also available in combination with your body’s own proteins) is injected into the deeper layers of the skin. The second consists of a broad-spectrum mesotherapy treatment where the entire face is deeply moisturized using a mesogun, which contains a rich serum of hyaluronic acid and peptides. A personal consultation will provide you with the information you need to choose the therapy that is right for you.
How will mesotherapy improve my skin? How many times do I need to repeat the treatment?
The selection of active ingredients used in mesotherapy are based on innovative combinations of different nutrients and active ingredients, individually selected for you, the patient, to protect your skin from cellular aging, damage from UV light and free radicals. The overall appearance of the skin is improved, fine wrinkles are smoothed, while collagen production and cell renewal are stimulated. The treated skin is left more resilient, clearly gaining in elasticity and better equipped to bind moisture to the skin.
Can I go back to work after the treatment?
There is no need for recovery time and you should be able to return to normal activities immediately with little bit of redness that can last up to 48hours but usually goes away the same day.
How long do the benefits last?
Patients who make a commitment to maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle following treatment should see their results last. Some patients require some maintenance every six to twelve months.
