The warm summer suns are about to shine, the temps are rising, and hordes of worshippers of that great big yellow ball in the sky will start thinking about holidays at the beach, lounging along the lakes, or heading anywhere they can take advantage of the beautiful weather.
It’s time to shed those excessive layers of clothing and let your skin breathe!
Of course, you’ll want to look your best as you make your way into the fun and relaxing activities associated with the summer months. In the wintertime, our skin begins to look sallow and tired, especially our faces, so summertime provides us with a chance to regain some color and to begin to look refreshed.
Sometimes, however, our faces can’t do that on their own and need a little help to get ready for summer, and one of the best ways to rejuvenate our faces is with the use of mesotherapy, also commonly and appropriately known as biorejuvenation or biorevitalisation.
Formulated in 1952 in France, this therapy has been recognized by the French National Academy of Medicine since 1986 and has since made its way to numerous other countries around the world.
Mesotherapy has become the treatment of choice for both men and women who seek to put forth that glowing look each sunny summer. It involves a technique used to rejuvenate the skin by means of a transdermal (under the skin) injection of a solution that contains several vitamins, minerals, peptides, and amino acids as well as natural plant extracts.
The combination of all these good ingredients helps combat the signs of aging. Specifically, the injections aim to break up localized fat deposits, tighten sagging skin, and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Built In UV Protection
A mesotherapy facial can also protect from the damaging rays of the sun thanks to its built-in UV protection. Sun protection is especially important as more and more people each year are diagnosed with skin cancer due to prolonged sun exposure without the benefit of any sort of protection.
With mesotherapy, the use of oily sunscreens can be diminished.
Patients who’ve undergone mesotherapy report significant changes after the recommended number of treatments, which usually number between 4 and 8. Furthermore, most note that the effects are long lasting and certainly carry them through the summer months, a time when they’re aiming to look their best for outdoor parties and trips to the seaside.
For those a bit turned off by needles, it’s important to note that this biorejuvenation form of therapy is relatively pain free. Some discomfort might be felt during the procedures, but aestheticians can offer a topical numbing cream that will reduce or eliminate any pain associated with the injections.
Some swelling or redness can occur, and individuals on a blood-thinning regimen should inform their aesthetician before undergoing treatment as bruising or bleeding could occur.
One of the primary advantages of mesotherapy (which can be used for more than just the face) as compared to other procedures such as face lifts or liposuction, is that it is a minimally-invasive procedure that does not require anaesthesia or hospitalisation.
That means there is virtually no recovery time. Those who undergo treatments immediately return to their activities, to work, and to the business of enjoying life.
Individuals of any age can opt to undergo mesotherapy, but it’s especially popular with women over the age of 50 though some advocates of the therapy start a bit younger and continue with regular maintenance injections as recommended.
