Mesotherapy is one of the latest minimally invasive clinical procedures used for treating various cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions. The treatment aims at targeting the problem areas only with microinjections comprising a mixture of conventional and homeopathic medications, enzymes, vitamins, amino acids, and plant extracts. The chemical cocktail is injected directly into the middle layer of the skin (mesoderm) of the patient to treat specifically the condition that requires treatment. Common applications of mesotherapy include:
- Mesotherapy for cellulite treatment.
- Mesotherapy for facial wrinkles and fine lines.
- Mesotherapy for hair loss.
As with any other cosmetic or non-cosmetic procedure, there are some risks and complications associated with mesotherapy as well. However, to date, there has been no record of permanent or life-threatening side effects caused by the procedure. While these side effects are rare and minimal, it is important that every mesotherapy candidate considers them before undergoing the treatment.
The risk of skin infection at the injection site is a potential concern with mesotherapy, particularly if proper hygiene and sterile techniques are not maintained during the procedure.
Discomfort caused by needle pricks:
The chemical cocktail is injected into the skin using a specially designed mesotherapy(ميزوثيرابي) gun that is able to make multiple shots within a few seconds. If you have a low pain threshold you may experience some discomfort caused by the needle pricks. However, this can be avoided by numbing the treatment area with topical anesthesia.
You may also experience burning sensations in the treatment area post-procedure. This is a quite common side effect but it does not last for long. You can minimize burning sensations by icing the injection sites.
Swelling and bruising:
Although swelling and bruising are common side effects, they typically subside within a day or two. Icing the treatment areas will help reduce swelling and bruising.
These risks and side effects can be significantly avoided by opting for an experienced, board-certified dermatologist with ample experience in treating people with mesotherapy.
