Mesotherapy: What Is It?
Mesotherapy is a word derived from the Latin words "meso" and "therapy". Mesotherapy, which literally means "medium treatment", is a form of aesthetic treatment. It is a procedure performed on the middle layer of the skin using a needle as a method similar to Acupuncture. The process of injecting amino acids, minerals, enzymes and vitamins into the middle layer of the skin with the help of needles (sometimes alone or mixed with each other), is called mesotherapy. Legally, mesotherapy can be applied to all healthy individuals over the age of 18. However, there are people who have some conditions in which mesotherapy cannot be applied or who have conditions that prevent the application. Mesotherapy has a very wide application purpose and application area. Various factors such as the person's health status, age, physical characteristics, and need are the conditions that change the content to be injected with microinjection application. Hence treatments are made individually.
What Is Mesotherapy Used for?
The Development and Evolution of This Stimulating Treatment
This skin-enhancing remedy was first developed in France in 1952 by a doctor named Michael Pistor. When he first put this technique into practice, the original purpose was to relieve pain for distressed patients and to treat vascular disorders. The treatment has evolved over the years, and it’s now used for skin related treatments and hair growth, as well.
In 1958, Pistor first used the word mesotherapy in a publication that described the technique. He called it this because he developed this treatment to treat a layer of the skin called the mesoderm. And as they say, the rest is history. It’s now used to provide several powerful skincare and hair regrowth therapies designed to help improve a person’s appearance.

What are the usage areas of mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is used as a pain relief method in both short-term and long-term painful diseases such as menstrual pains, migraine, fibromyalgia, cervicobrachial syndrome, neuralgia and gout. Mesotherapy can also be applied in inflammatory conditions such as sports injuries, muscle - tendon injuries, bursitis or myositis. The treatment of painful and inflamed fluid accumulations in the joint areas can also be done with mesotherapy. In such rheumatic diseases, these diseases are easily and rapidly treated with drugs applied directly to the area with microinjection. Mesotherapy is also used to eliminate some vascular diseases. The vascular disease called varicose caused by circulatory disorder is a disease treated with mesotherapy.
Mesolifting and body mesotherapy
In mesolifting and body mesotherapy, many skin conditions such as spots, sunspots, skin spots, birthmarks, acne, fistula, acne scars, birth cracks, cracks that occur by weight gain, shingles are treated. It removes skin aging on the face and provides correction of the skin color of a person. Collagen tissue that decreases with aging causes sagging and wrinkles on the skin. The procedures applied as microinjection in mesotherapy provide the repair of collagen tissue. Mesolifting is a very effective method that provides skin renewal, which is widely applied today. This method which plays a crucial role in reducing aging symptoms is very effective. Regeneration, brightness, healthy glowing, fullness on the skin after mesolifting can be significantly visible. Since mesolifting is the process of replacing the natural and needed substances of the skin and the application is made in very small amounts, the possibility of side effects is low. While mesolifting enables the skin to regain the missing moisture, it increases the production of natural elastane and collagen in the skin. Just before mesotherapy is applied to the face, the skin is disinfected and cleaned very well. The skin is regenerated by the process of introducing required substances such as minerals, vitamins, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants into the skin. Cellulite disorder caused by skin circulatory disorder can be seen in both men and women. Mesotherapy is also used to eliminate the appearance of cellulite. The fluids injected into the middle layer of the skin accelerate the blood circulation under the skin, regulate the lymph circulation, dissolve the fats, dissolve the stiff connective tissues and help to eliminate cellulite. After mesotherapy procedure, cellulite formation can be prevented by healthy nutrition and regular exercise.
How is face and skin mesotherapy applied?
A very small amount of hyaluronic acid is directly injected to the middle and first layers ıf skin. Hyaluronic acid protects the elastic tissue of skin, but it starts to decrease in the skin by the aging although it exists in every skin tissue. By mesotherapy application, the missing hyaluronic acid is replaced. The drug mixture is injected into the skin at certain intervals with micro needles used in mesotherapy. It may be applied to deeper areas according to the need of skin. In order to get an effective result from the application, more sessions can be applied at one-week interval as determined by the physician according to the need of skin. Considering the sensitivity of patients against pain, anesthetic cream can be applied on the skin surface before the procedure. If it is decided to apply anesthetic cream, it is applied on the relevant area until 30 to 40 minutes before mesotherapy procedure. Duration of treatment may change between 20 to 45 minutes according to the size of mesotherapy area. The recovery time on the skin surface after mesotherapy application depends partially on the patient. After the procedure, some patients can return to their daily lives completely, while some patients may experience some problems such as redness, swelling and bruising. During the first two days after mesotherapy application, this redness and swelling may pass. The healing process of redness and swelling around the eyes may take longer.
