Mesotherapy is a technique of the direct insertion of various substances in the middle layer of the skin called the dermis. The dermis is composed mainly of connective tissue fibers and is responsible for nourishing and supporting the skin. It contains essential components of the skin such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the structure, the elasticity and amount of skin hydration. Autologous mesotherapy or Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), has been gaining ground because of its spectacular results from simply using ingredients from our own body. The difference from the traditional injectable mesotherapy is that instead of using hyaluronic acid and vitamins prepared in the laboratory, we utilize plasma rich in platelets from your own body. The platelets release growth factors that promote the production of collagen and elastin. Moreover, this treatment nourishes the skin, since plasma contains proteins and trace elements necessary for cell renewal, providing deep hydration and firmness.
How is it applied?
The doctor takes a small amount of blood from a peripheral vein that is then centrifuged in a specialized machine to separate blood into its main components (plasma, platelets, white and red blood cells). From this, we use the plasma with growth factors contained in the platelets. Then, anesthetic cream is applied and then the processed plasma with platelets is injected with a very thin needle. The plasma and platelet growth factors stimulate tissue repair of damaged cells and gives skin a healthy appearance. At the end of the treatment, a special mask is applied that soothes the skin submitted to treatment therefore allowing you to return to you activities. The treatment may be applied to the face, throat, neck and the top surface of the hands.
Autologous mesotherapy can be combined with other non-invasive tightening therapies with PDO threads, such as the EasyLif, as well as other non-invasive laser treatments.
