Mesotherapy can refer to many different types of treatments. They involve injecting small packets of nutrients, serums and other medications into the skin. Depending on the type of injection, the safety and effectiveness of the injections can vary significantly.
Aspire’s Mesotherapy treatments are aimed at treating multifaceted issues, such as ‘skin aging’ or ‘acne scarring’. In truth, skin aging isn’t really just one issue, but a collection of small, individually minor conditions such as micro wrinkles, light age spots, veins, skin thinning, redness, and mild scarring. While not very significant individually, together they cause the skin to have a pronounced aging effect.
In acne scarring, a similar effect occurs due to a collection of atrophic scarring (where the skin ‘caves in’), hypertrophic scarring (where the skin pushes outwards), pigmented scars, and redness.
The major issue with these ‘multifaceted’ concerns is that the individual conditions often each require a different treatment, which can increase treatment complexity, side effects, and costs. This is where mesotherapy comes in: the hydration and growth effects of this treatment have mild to moderate restorative effects on a lot of ‘little things’ redness, scarring, wrinkles, and pigment. On multifaceted skin concerns, which attack your skin from multiple angles, this multifaceted solution provides a nearly transformative effect.
In short, mesotherapy is an extremely elegant solution to ‘multifaceted’ skin problems such as skin aging or acne scarring, which otherwise require multiple other treatments to effectively address. The downtime is also quite minimal, being about 12-24 hours.
Revanesse® PureTM is a non-cross-linked HA gel used to nourish and moisturize the skin. Pure™ is ideal for replenishing HA lost due to aging by hydrating the skin and restoring elasticity for firmer, healthier-looking skin.
HA is an important component of the skin and connective tissues, as it holds in moisture and keeps the skin hydrated. Over time, though, the natural concentration of HA, collagen and elastin in the body lessens, causing the skin to thin and lose its support structure.
The skin is comprised of three major layers. The top layer is the epidermis and contains skin cells. The middle layer is the dermis and contains both collagen and elastin. Collagen provides support to the skin while elastin provides strength and flexibility. The bottom layer is the subcutaneous and contains fat tissue. The subcutaneous supports the two layers above.
Revanesse® Pure is a non-animal hyaluronic acid based biorejuvenation product manufactured in Canada by Prollenium and distributed in the UK by Boston Medical Group Ltd since 2010.
IS A SKIN TEST REQUIRED BEFORE TREATMENT?
IS IT TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT?
Hyaluronic acid is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, eventually leaving no trace.
TREATMENT SHOULD BE PERFORMED BY
Should be used by trained members of the medical profession only.
Non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel.
Used for skin rehydration of the face, neck, hands and décolletage using a mesotherapy technique. It is quickly absorbed into the skin, replenishing the hyaluronic acid levels lost through natural ageing, restoring elasticity, firmness and moisturizing the surface to give a more healthy looking appearance.
NOT TO BE USED IN
Individuals with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid. People with acne or other inflammatory diseases. Those prone to hypertrophic scarring.
Pregnant or breast feeding women.
DURATION OF EFFECT
The manufacturers recommend that treatments are carried out on a monthly basis for four consecutive months to achieve the results. A maintenance programme can then be established. As the product is not a dermal filler, they do not give longevity data on single treatments alone.
REPORTED SIDE EFFECTS
Expect erythema (redness), swelling, pain, itching, discolouration or tenderness at the injection site. This typically resolves spontaneously, within one or two days after treatment, and up to a week after injection into the lips.
In rare cases, glabellar necrosis, abscess formation, granulomas and hypersensitivity have all been reported with injections of hyaluronic acid products
