This procedure was first developed by Michel Pistor, a French doctor in 1952. The technique was originally used to relieve pain, however soon it gained popularity all over the world.
What is micro-mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy involves using fine needles to deliver a cocktail of treatments consisting of vitamins, minerals, serums, and growth factors. Micro mesotherapy is different from the conventional mesotherapy technique because it uses micro droplets of different active ingredients with tiny needles to enhance the penetration of active ingredients.
What happens during your appointment?
During every session, your doctor may or may not apply a numbing cream to your skin. Using a short needle specially designed for this treatment, you will get a series of injections. This needle may be attached to a mechanical gun to deliver a series of injections in a row.
The injections are given at different depths ranging from 1 to 4 mms to your scalp – depending on the condition you are getting treated.
The expert dermatologists place the needles at any angle to the scalp or flick their wrists in a fast motion while injecting. These injections place a tiny drop of the solution to your scal.
How many sessions are required?
Several sessions of mesotherapy are needed to get the desired results. You’ll be expected to visit your dermatologist at least 3-15 times. At first, you will receive the injections every 7-10 days. When your skin starts improving, the treatments will be scheduled to once every two weeks or once a month.
