Mesotherapy Pre & Post Care Instructions

Mesotherapy contains a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and hyaluronic acid.  It is designed to boost cell turnover, hydrate and provide essential supplements to the skin.  It is delivered by a series of very superficial (barely breaking the skin), micro needling.  The procedure at worst can be described as mildly uncomfortable.

Common side effects:

  • Redness and flushing
  • Swelling and pain
  • Tenderness and itching
  • Bruising and bleeding

These typically resolve within minutes, sometimes hours and rarely days after treatment.  Extremely rare side effects may include infections and ulceration.
