Mesotherapy (derived from the Greek words mesos ‘middle’ and therapeia ‘to treat medically’) is a highly effective rejuvenating treatment that uses micro-needles to deliver hydration, vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish, rejuvenate and brighten the skin.
Mesotherapy can also be used as a nonsurgical fat-removal treatment. Unlike liposuction, which removes fat from tubes inserted into the body, mesotherapy works by injecting a combination of vitamins, enzymes and hormones directly into the fat, which will then begin to dissolve. It is significantly less invasive than its surgical counterpart and comes with far less downtime. Our clinicians draw upon years of training and experience when conducting this highly specialised procedure, and can target areas such as the thighs, stomach, neck, arms and hips.
Who is the ideal candidate? Mesotherapy would suit anyone looking to gain younger, tighter, brighter skin or someone at the end of their weight loss journey struggling to shift those last few pounds of fat.
Mesotherapy offers intense skin hydration and is a popular treatment for dull, dry, dehydrated skin. This light needling of the skin also stimulates the dermis of the skin to accelerate collagen and elastin production to strengthen the structure of the skin resulting in plumper, tighter, dewy skin. The treatment is largely pain-free with patient’s only feeling the initial injection of the needle.
When injected into the face, platelet-rich plasma can help to stimulate collagen production and create a fresh, youthful glow with natural results.
As one of the newest treatments on our roster, Platelet Rich Plasma Injections combine high-tech extraction with the body’s natural wisdom and can have a significant impact on skin damage and ageing. PRP works by harvesting a patient’s own platelets by drawing blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to isolate growth factors. When these growth factors are injected into the face, multipotent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).
As PRP works by injecting the patient’s own platelets back into the body, adverse reactions are rare, and ‘downtime’ is negligible, as the injections are actually working to speed up healing. The procedure typically takes under an hour, and patients should start seeing the benefit within a week.
