MESOTHERAPY IS RATED AS ONE OF THE LESS INVASIVE PROCEDURES, BECAUSE IT DOES NOT INVOLVE ANY SKIN CUTTING OR THE USE OF A SCALPEL. THIS TREATMENT IS USED TO SMOOTH AND TIGHTEN FACIAL SKIN AND TO REDUCE HAIR LOSS.
Used in the case of fine wrinkles, pigment disorders, acne, loss of elasticity and enlarged pores; but also for stretch marks and cellulite, mesotherapy can improve the complexion. In the case of hair loss, regular use can also produce a noticeable slowdown and thus counteract the onset of baldness.
Where does the name "mesotherapy" come from?
Meso comes from the Greek and means "middle". Mesotherapy is based on the assumption that healing begins from the middle of the tissue layers.
The first step is a consultation and examination of the skin areas to be treated. Then a mixture of active ingredients is selected to match the skin type. The active ingredient mixture of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, or hyaluronic acid is then introduced into the skin with fine cannulas. The microinjections locally improve the blood circulation, stimulate cell renewal, and ensure the cocktail of active ingredients is directed exactly to where it needs to act. Depending on the application, visible and natural-looking results can be achieved after just a few treatments.
Following the treatment, a light massage of the treated areas ensures the optimal distribution of the injected active ingredient mixture. In the final step, a special cream is applied to protect the relevant skin areas. Mesotherapy usually takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Mesotherapy not only prevents hair loss but can also ensure hair regrowth on thinning or already bald areas. Hair growth is stimulated through the optimal treatment of the hair roots. Case studies show that in about 80% of cases hair loss decreases after the third treatment, healthier and fuller hair grows back after two to three months and even with less pronounced forms of autoimmune hair loss (alopecia areata) can be treated.

The treatment is carried out at intervals of 4-6 weeks. Usually, 4-6 treatments are required to achieve lasting results. A booster treatment can be carried out every 3 months.
The treatment is carried out by the experienced dermatologists in our practice in Vienna.
Mesotherapy is a tried and tested method that is risk-free, has few side effects and hardly causes any downtime. The penetration depth of the needle is so superficial that no significant hematomas develop (the blood supply in this skin layer is through tiny capillaries, larger vessels are located much deeper in the tissue). Reddening can limit the ability to socialize for about 1-2 days after the treatment.
Exercise and sauna should be avoided on the day of the treatment itself. In the first three days after the mesotherapy, it is recommended to use only mild cleaning agents and light, fragrance-free care products that do not contain alcohol or acids. It is also important that you consistently use the highest possible sun protection in the following weeks.
