The principle of mesotherapy is to provide the skin with what it needs to benefit from a beautiful, rich and radiant skin.
Mesotherapy is made of various active ingredients, known for their stimulating and beneficial properties on the skin.
These active ingredients are administered directly into the superficial layer of the skin using many small injections.
The administration technique of mesotherapy, or performing many small injections, also plays a role in stimulating the regeneration of the skin and thus has an additional effect on skin quality.
At Be Life Medical Clinic in Brussels, we offer different mesotherapy treatments according to your needs.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can mesotherapy be used for the face?
Yes, mesotherapy can be used to keep the skin firm, hydrated and elastic by stimulating the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin. Therefore, mesotherapy relies on the properties of hyaluronic acid, organic silicium, DMAE, powerful antioxidants, vitamins and other essential elements. Other actives can be added according to specific needs such as wrinkles, sagging skin, dark circles or fine lines around the eyes, pigmentation spots or hair loss. The treatment of the face can be combined with the neck, cleavage and hands.
Can mesotherapy be used for the body?
Yes, mesotherapy can also be used to treat the body when the visual appearance of the skin is not satisfactory. Different “cocktails” are available depending on the indication : thin and dehydrated skin, loose skin, cellulite, stretch marks or scars.
What is “mesobotox”?
Mesobotox is a combination of mesotherapy and a diluted solution of botulinum toxin. The botulinum toxin is not administered into the muscle, but into the skin where it has interesting effects : the skin becomes smoother without affecting facial expressions, the pores shrink and the skin is less oily and clammy. The treatment is particularly suitable for horizontal necklines, fine facial wrinkles, enlarged pores or oily skin.
What about “skinboosters”?
The “skinboosters” are intended for deep hydration of the skin and relies on the moisturizing properties of natural hyaluronic acid. They differ from mesotherapy by their higher concentration of hyaluronic acid and by their deeper administration of the hyaluronic acid. These two differences offer a superior and longer-lasting hydration to the skin.
Is it dangerous?
No, mesotherapy is not dangerous for health. Redness, swelling and bruising can occur, but are temporary. Complications are very rare, but infection or persistent injection traces are possible complications.
Is the result natural?
Yes, mesotherapy stimulates, nourishes and brightens the skin from the inside and therefore offers a natural result. The face does not change, but the skin quality improves.
How long does the result last?
After 1 week, the skin is already brighter and fuller, while the stimulation of the skin is still ongoing. The other effects, depending on the used actives, usually occur after 1 to 3 months. Multiple treatments are recommended for an optimal result. When the skin needs intensive stimulation, mesotherapy can be performed in treatments of 3 to 10 sessions. Otherwise, a session every 3 to 6 months is recommended to nourish and moisturize the skin regularly.
Is there an obligation to repeat the treatment?
Not at all. If the treatment is not repeated, the stimulation stops and the natural aging process resumes.
What happens during a treatment?
The treatment consists of injecting the active ingredients into the superficial skin layer of the treated area. The technique most commonly used is to perform numerous, small injection points using a fine needle at regular distances (about 1 injection per square centimeter). Usually a numbing cream is applied before the treatment for more comfort. A treatment using a cannula, where only one injection point is needed, is also possible.
What to expect after a treatment?
After a treatment, the treated area is slightly red and swollen for several hours or days. Bruises can also occur. Treatment with a needle leaves more traces than a cannula. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after treatment, but makeup is not recommended in the treated area the day of treatment.
