Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used to treat various injuries and medical conditions. This medical specialty targets problem areas with microinjections of conventional or homeopathic medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Tiny "medicinal bullets" are delivered directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) that are highly specific to the condition being treated.
2- How is Mesotherapy done?
Mesotherapy employs multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients into the subcutaneous fat. Mesotherapy injections metabolically target adipose fat cells, apparently by inducing lipolysis (destruction of fat), rupture and cell death among adipocytes (fat cells).
3- What can we treat with mesotherapy?
Among its many applications, Mesotherapy is used for the following indications:
Since 1986, Mesotherapy was recognized as an integral part of traditional medicine.
Mesotherapy- Acthyderm (The New System)
4- How has Acthyderm revolutionized mesotherapy?
Acthyderm is a revolutionary system for transdermally delivering product into the body without the use of injections or needdles. Acthyderm (A-thi-derm; meaning active skin) is now available worldwide and is used by doctors to non-surgically repair and rejuvenate the skin.
5- How does the transdermally delivering system of Acthyderm work?
An Acthyderm treatment is simple, safe and pleasant. It begins with electroporation, the principal method of Acthyderm. Electroporation is applied with a special pen that stimulates the skin to temporarily become more permeable. First an electrical current stimulates the dermis to open up tiny channels to the deeper layers of the skin. Then, before the channels close up a couple of minutes later, therapeutic ingredients are rolled into the treatment area.
This allows Acthyderm to deliver large volumes of product deep into the skin with the roller applicator. The roller applicator looks much like a common deodorant roller. It's much more effective as well because the product goes exactly where it is needed most. This method allows even large molecule to go deep into the skin for facial rejuvenation, cellulite reduction, hyper pigmentation and much more. The skin looks and feels no differently since the treatment occurs on a cellular level. This allows Acthyderm to deliver large volumes of product deep into the skin with the roller applicator.
Acthyderm does all of this safely, painlessly and without trauma to the area.
6- What goes on during a treatment session?
During treatment, the operator alternates three or four times between the pen and the roller and after 20 to 30 minutes, that's it. The initial effect of a face treatment is a very thorough hydration of the skin and a smoother, more youthful look. However, the goal of Acthyderm is rejuvenation through the stimulation of fibroblasts so a course of treatments to achieve this effect would be 6-10 followed by monthly maintenance. Depending on the grade of cellulite, a series would be similar, though the products being delivered in this case are designed to break down the encapsulated fat.
7- Will I feel any pain during an acthyderm session?
Not at all. On the contrary, the treatment is very relaxing and comforting.
8- Will I see results instantly?
Acthyderm gradually reshape the skin and body contours. Gnerally you will need 6 to 10 sessions weekly followed by monthly maintenance.
9- Will the results last?
The results do last, especially when combined with exercise and proper nutrition. However, we cannot stop the natural aging that affects your appearance. For this reason, we recommend regular maintenance visits.
10- Are there any side effects or contraindications to Acthyderm treatment?
None whatsoever, except a known hypersensitivity to any of the active ingredients contained in the formulas
11- What are the benefits of Acthyderm over surgical techniques such as liposuction?
Liposuction does not treat cellulite. In fact, liposuction often causes existing cellulite to appear more prominent. Mesotherapy treats cellulite directly, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas. Fat deposits are flushed from the body, and do not reappear in other areas, which often occurs after liposuction. Mesotherapy does not require hospitalization, general anesthesia or downtime.
12- What are Acthyderm's anti-aging and skin rejuvenation uses?
Transdermal vitamin deliveries rejuvenate the cells, making them more active, and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. You can begin anti-aging treatments in your mid twenties to prevent wrinkles from forming. Treatments for the face, neck, arms and hands are recommended several times each year.
13- What are the different types of Acthyderm’s treatments?
Acthyderm can treat a very wide range of affections:
Face lift, wrinkles, neck lift and loose skin tightening
Bags under the eyes
Facial and neck generalized obesity
Second chin or other localized fat accumulation on the face
Fat burning, excessive fat accumulation /abdomen, love handles and similar.
Cellulites and body shaping
Bony and skinny face
