Micro-needle mesotherapy is a technique of skin microperforation with a special device called dermaroller. It creates a controlled injury underneath the skin surface and in this way, induces the body to respond through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibres in the treated area. It improves microcirculation and tissue oxygenation. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulation, ultimately reducing the appearance of fine lines, scars and hyperpigmentation. The perforation also allows for active substances to penetrate deep inside the skin.
The treatment starts with make-up removal and skin disinfection. Next, the cosmetologist performs microperforation with a dermaroller. The procedure lasts about 10—15 minutes, depending on the target area. Throughout the treatment, highly concentrated active agents (mesococktail) are placed directly on the face. At the end of the procedure, a calming, hydrating, lifting face mask is applied.
Micro-needle mesotherapy forces the skin to regenerate and the controlled inflammation of the skin results in some intensive redness and swelling, but these symptoms subside within 1-3 days. In order to nourish the skin, it is recommended to hydrate the skin regularly and apply a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 for 10 days. It is advised to avoid swimming pool, sauna, physical exercise, hot baths and alcohol for 4 days after the treatment.
There is a risk of bacterial infection, which can be easily avoided if the skin is properly cleaned, hydrated and moisturised.
There might be some redness which passes after some time. The red skin needs to be adequately protected against the sun.
Among the rarest side effects is the risk of developing a temporary or permanent colour change in the skin (hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation).
Best results are achieved after a series of 4-6 treatments repeated at 2-4 week intervals.
