The treatments allow reducing the adipose tissue, even in the abdomen area. Thanks to the possibility of applying the treatment to many areas simultaneously, during one treatment we may work on the abdomen, thighs and buttocks.

How does the micro-needle mesotherapy look like?

We prepare the skin with make-up removal and the disinfection of the area which the mesotherapy will be applied to. We exfoliate and soften the skin with a delicate peeling: glycolic acid or cavitation. The micro-needle therapy is regularly shot on areas, which need cure (its depth depends on the skin’s thickness and skin type). The final stage of the procedure is the application of a meso-cocktail and a soothing mask.

Why is micro-needle mesotherapy more effective than other methods?

Applying cosmetics directly onto the skin surface without the micro-needle shots allows only 0,3% of the active substances to penetrate into deeper skin layers. Punctures on the skin allow opening many micro-canals, which stay open for about 20 minutes after the procedure, and allow the active substances to be absorbed several hundred times more effectively. The skin reacts to micro-punctures like it does to micro-damages. During the healing process, many regeneration processes stimulate fibroblast dissociation, which enhances collagen fibre, elastin and hyaluronic acid production.

Who may undergo the micro-needle mesotherapy treatment?

Micro-needle mesotherapy helps fighting wrinkles, under eye bags, dark circles, dilated capillaries, Erythema, acne, old scars, helps keeping the skin’s firmness. It is a procedure, which may be applied to various body parts. If your problem is cellulite, stretch marks, scars, poor skin firmness, dry skin, or swellings – micro-needle mesotherapy will be the best solution.

Micro-punctures? Does it hurt?

Each patient is an individual and each person has a different threshold of pain. You may use anesthetic cream Emla.
