Anti-aging Mesotherapy (Poly revitalizing)
EFFECTIVE FOR – Dull skin, sagging skin with loss of tone/elasticity
These injections involve a product and method that are very different from hyaluronic acid or botulinum toxin injections. Due to the skin losing vital elements, like hyaluronic acid, over time, its tone, elasticity, thickness and capacity to rehydrate all diminish.
Mesotherapy involves a series of mini-injections into the superficial dermis of a rich cocktail of vitamins, amino acids and trace elements combined with very fine hyaluronic acid, that revitalizes and stimulates the skin’s natural processes. The skin regains its quality and radiance and is brighter, suppler, firmer…. This is a revitalizing treatment that is beneficial at any age from 30, both in the prevention and treatment of the signs of aging.
WHERE IT WORKS BEST – Revitalization: Face, neck, neckline, the backs of the hands, thighs, arms
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW :
