The facial mesotherapy treatment at Clínica Rigo in Tarragona consists of a series of painless microinjections performed with extra-fine needles. In this treatment, small amounts of vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, peptides and even hyaluronic acid are infiltrated into the face.
The result is an increase in skin radiance. In addition, better hydration, uniformity and density are achieved; porosity is reduced, the skin’s oiliness is balanced and a positive contribution is made to the treatment of acne. On the other hand, facial mesotherapy is one of the best techniques to reduce fine wrinkles.
For visible results it is necessary to repeat facial mesotherapy once a month for at least four months. It should always be applied by an experienced medical professional.
Mesotherapy is a perfect option for those who do not wish to undergo surgery and want to achieve a healthy and glowing appearance by using effective remedies based on natural substances to nourish the skin from within. To nourish, heal and renew the skin, a typical mesotherapy cocktail may include numerous active ingredients.
The treatment has numerous advantages, which is why it is one of the most preferred aesthetic procedures. Some of the benefits of this intervention are as follows:
With the growing popularity of mesotherapy treatments and their wide range of benefits, the question arises as to whether everyone can be a good candidate for this treatment. It uses a simple variant of customised microinjections that are inserted under the skin into the mesoderm layer.
The solution injected in mesotherapy treatments is a mixture of customised components such as vitamins, medications, supplements and amino acids. With all the benefits it can offer, almost everyone would want to know if they can be a qualified candidate for mesotherapy treatments.
Before undergoing any type of treatment, a full medical evaluation of your condition and needs will be performed.
It is very important to tell the doctor anything that is particularly important in relation to your health conditions; and you should also inform the doctor if you are on any type of dietary medication or if you are taking any other medications.
The ideal candidate for treatments should have realistic needs and expectations. Factors that will determine the readiness of the candidate are the following: being 18 years of age or older, and in good physical and psychological health. The person should also possess maturity, realistic expectations and a full understanding of mesotherapy procedures.
At Clinica Rigo, we usually prepare the skin with a local anaesthetic cream prior to a microinjection treatment, which makes the procedure extremely comfortable.
Most patients do not require local anaesthetic prior to needle mesotherapy, however, if you find yourself particularly nervous about how it may feel, the option is available to numb the treatment area beforehand.
Each patient is different and so are the objectives, therefore, the total cost will depend on how many sessions each one requires. Contact the clinic for a detailed and personalised quote based on the objectives you wish to achieve.
It is recommended that patients have some time to recover after Mesotherapy treatment. They will experience some superficial swelling, which will dissipate within 24-48 hours.
Although rare, other possible side effects include the appearance of some small needle marks which will also disappear within a few days. The treatment around the eye area may take longer to settle, possibly 5-7 days.
Results can last between 12 and 18 months, depending on skin type, condition and number of sessions performed.
People who should not receive the treatment are pregnant women, people with immune system problems, patients with heart murmurs/irregular heart rhythms and those taking anticoagulants, stroke sufferers and those with a history of blood clots.
Patients with severe chronic conditions, such as cardiac dysfunction and coronary heart disease, are also not good candidates for this treatment. Insulin-dependent diabetics are also not suitable for Mesotherapy treatment.
Mesotherapy with growth factors stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen, which is the main support structure of the skin. If one can keep the skin firm and tight with collagen, then the sagging that occurs over time can be contained as firmer skin supports the soft tissues of the face and body.
This depends on what you are trying to achieve. If you’re trying to correct a skin problem, such as a deep wrinkle, you may need several treatments to achieve the kind of wrinkle smoothing you’re hoping for. That said, you can often start to notice some subtle changes a day or so after treatment.
If your skin is particularly dehydrated, you may notice a plumping almost immediately. At Clinica Rigo Aesthetic Medicine we have modern equipment for mesotherapies, with the aim of making the technique as atraumatic as possible and allowing our patients to return to their daily lives as soon as possible.
We offer combined techniques such as the use of masks, LED light and facial massages as complements, at no additional cost.
