A mesofacial, also known as a mesotherapy facial, is an anti-aging treatment that focuses on the mesodermal layer of skin to improve a wide range of skin conditions and to reverse signs of aging. This non-invasive treatment uses a specialized device that injects a combination of highly therapeutic serums into the skin to boost collagen production for clear, beautiful, and younger-looking skin.
Here are the most common questions asked about a mesofacial, and where you can go to find this safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment.
What are the Benefits of a Mesofacial?
A mesofacial offers countless benefits for those who want to improve the appearance of their skin. First, the mesofacial is a non-surgical treatment, which means it does not involve incisions, general anesthesia, scarring, or downtime. Patients can visit our clinic to receive a mesofacial and immediately resume normal daily activities afterward.
A mesofacial can also treat a variety of skin conditions to improve skin texture and common signs of aging. For instance, a mesofacial can increase skin elasticity and firmness and improve a dull, tired-looking complexion. This anti-aging treatment is safe for all skin types, and promotes overall skin rejuvenation.
Which Skin Conditions Can Be Treated With a Mesofacial?
A mesofacial can improve many skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dark under-eye circles
- Stretch marks
- Thinning hair
- Acne scars and pits
- Dry skin
- Loose, sagging skin
- Dull complexion
- Pigmentation irregularities
If your skin condition is not listed, you may still be a candidate for a mesofacial. Get in touch with us to schedule a free consultation so we can examine your skin and determine whether a mesofacial or another skin rejuvenation treatment can help you achieve your unique aesthetic goals.
What Happens During a Mesofacial?
A mesofacial is highly relaxing, as patients who visit our clinic for this procedure can lie down as we perform the treatment. First, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the face 30 to 40 minutes before the procedure to reduce any discomfort.
During a mesofacial, a certified medical practitioner or internal medicine physician will use a gun-like smart injection system to inject a series of therapeutic substances, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins, peptides and plant extracts, into the skin. These ingredients induce elastin and collagen production to promote skin hydration, and nourish and rejuvenate the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes.
Mesofacial treatment sessions can last anywhere between 20 and 45 minutes depending on the size and number of treatment areas. During your initial consultation, we can provide you with a more accurate estimate in regard to treatment length.
Does a Mesofacial Hurt?
A mesofacial is virtually painless, as a topical anesthetic or numbing cream is applied to the skin 30 to 40 minutes before the procedure. Many of our patients report that a mesofacial is highly relaxing, and report no pain or discomfort thanks to the numbing cream.
What Happens After a Mesofacial Treatment?
Because a mesofacial is non-invasive, there is no downtime, and you can resume your normal daily activities right away after your treatment session. You may experience minor swelling and discomfort, which usually resolves on its own within 24 to 48 hours.
Some patients report the appearance of tiny needle marks from the gun-like injection system used during a mesofacial, though these also resolve within 48 hours. Patients who have the areas around their eyes treated may notice that swelling and redness persist for longer than 48 hours, due to the extremely thin layer of skin around the eyes.
The number of mesofacial treatment sessions needed to achieve the desired effect will vary based on the type and severity of skin conditions being treated. For instance, patients with deep creases and wrinkles may need as many as 15 treatment sessions to achieve adequate wrinkle reduction, while those with a few fine lines may only need two or three treatment sessions to achieve smooth skin. During your initial consultation, we can discuss the number of treatment sessions you may need.
How Long Do the Effects of a Mesofacial Last?
Results of a mesofacial can last 12 months or longer, especially if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and use quality skincare products. Avoid excess sun exposure, and wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Stop smoking, exercise regularly, and eat a variety of healthy, nourishing foods (such as fruits and vegetables) that can hydrate and plump the skin.
Which Other Skin Rejuvenation Treatments can be Combined With a Mesofacial?
A mesofacial can be combined with one or more other skin rejuvenation treatments to help you achieve your ideal look. IV nutrient therapy can boost your skin health, while a platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) facial uses your own platelets to boost your own natural collagen production. Other skin rejuvenation treatments we offer include Botox, hyaluronic acid fillers, and collagen-building fillers.
