Mesotherapy : what is it ?
Mesotherapy is a method that uses injections of plant extracts, hormones, vitamins and enzymes to renew and tighten the skin, as well as to remove excess fat.

- Reduce cellulite;
- Fade fine lines and wrinkles;
- Strengthen loose skin;
- Reshape the body;

- Treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss.
The technique uses needles to manage a range of injections into the middle layer (the mesoderm) of the skin. The basic idea of mesotherapy is that it can resolve underlying difficulties such as poor blood flow and edema that cause skin damage.
Injections of active ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, nutrients and vitamins, just below the surface of our skin, are tolerated. Hyaluronic acid mesotherapy promotes skin rejuvenation by increasing the hydration and activation of fibroblasts (which increases the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid). When repeated over time, the appearance of wrinkles can also be reduced.
