FAQ

Mesotherapy

How much does it cost?

The cost of mesotherapy depends on the type of treatment you’re getting and the number of sessions you need.

How do you prepare?

Avoid aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for one week before the procedure. These pain relievers can increase your risk of bleeding and bruising during mesotherapy.

What happens during your appointment?

During each session, you may or may not have numbing medicine applied to your skin. You’ll get a series of injections using a special short needle. The needle may be attached to a mechanical gun to deliver many injections in a row.

The injections can be given at different depths — from 1 to 4 millimeters into your skin — depending on what condition you’re having treated. Your doctor may place the needle into your skin at an angle, or flick their wrist very quickly while injecting. Each injection may only place a tiny drop of the solution into your skin. You’ll probably need several sessions to get the desired effect.

What are the side effects and risks?

People who practice mesotherapy say the risks are minimal if you go to a trained practitioner.

What is the recovery like?

Because mesotherapy is non-invasive, there usually isn’t any downtime. Many people are able to return to their regular activities right away. Others may need to take a day off due to swelling and pain at the injection sites.

What are the benefits?

Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger- looking skin with fewer signs of aging. This procedure can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.
