How does Mesotherapy work?
Mesotherapy contains a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and hyaluronic acid. It is designed to boost cell turnover, hydrate and provide essential supplements to the skin. It is delivered by a series of very superficial (barely breaking the skin), micro needling. The procedure at worst can be described as mildly uncomfortable.
Common Side Effects Of Mesotherapy
- Redness and flushing
- Swelling and pain
- Tenderness and itching
- Bruising and bleeding
These typically resolve within minutes, sometimes hours and rarely days after treatment. Extremely rare side effects may include infections and ulceration.
