mesotherapyMesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment which uses multiple injections into the mid layer of the skin where they can deliver the maximum benefit.

Mesotherapy History

French doctor Michel Pistor (1924–2003) is considered the father of modern mesotherapy as he carried out research and founded the field of mesotherapy in the 1950’s. The French press coined the term Mesotherapy in 1958, creating the word from a combination of “meso” – the Greek for “middle” and “therapy” which comes from the Greek “therapia” – which means to treat medically.

Medical Uses

In the early years following Dr. Pistor’s development of the practice, Mesotherapy was used primarily for the treatment of medical conditions.

The advantage of using mesotherapy over orally administered medication is that it is delivered directly into the bloodstream, rather than having to be processed and released through the digestive system. Smaller amounts of medication could be used as it is delivered directly to the area being treated.

Conditions such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, depression and anxiety were treated.

French practitioners then discovered that the technique could be used to treat skin conditions as well. Wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks, hair loss and acne could show improvement after mesotherapy treatment. Mesotherapy can also be used in body sculpting and firming of the skin.

How Mesotherapy Works

The results of mesotherapy treatment are two-fold.

Firstly, the physical act of delivering an injection breaks the surface of the skin and disturbs the cells, triggering a healing response which includes cell renewal, collagen production, skin tightening and healing. By having multiple tiny injections, the effect is spread and the result is amplified.

Secondly, the effect of the actual agent injected then comes into play. Depending on the area being treated and the condition being tackled, doctors could utilise microscopic quantities of pharmaceuticals, vitamins and minerals. For skin rejuvenation, a hyaluronic acid might also be an option to retain moisture within the skin, creating a healthier glow.

Mesotherapy London

Dr Barbara Kubicka, founder, director and doctor at Clinicbe® in Belgravia, London, uses mesotherapy extensively within her clinic. She also offers new pain-free mesotherapy treatment.

She explains:

“I have been using mesotherapy injections in my Aesthetic Medicine practice for many years. They really appeal to patients seeking a natural-looking, yet effective skin treatment.

Mesotherapy injections are a good choice for patients who are nervous about the “muscle-freezing” effect of traditional cosmetic treatments. I have also found them to be particularly powerful when used in conjunction with other treatments and I use Mesotherapy within my exclusive treatments “Eyedealise Eye Rejuvenation”, “Neck and Jaw-Line Programme” and “Triple Synergy Hair Loss System”.

Dr Barbara Kubicka’s love of mesotherapy fits perfectly with her holistic approach to skincare treatments; treating the patient as a whole in order to get the best possible results from any treatments they may have. Concentrating on both the inside wellness and the outward appearance means that private consultations often include individual advice on nutrition, hydration and lifestyle as well as professional treatments.

Clinicbe has a comprehensive range of skin treatments including cosmetology facials, injections and the latest technology such as IPL, I-Lipo and PRP. The clinic is based in the Knightsbridge area, easily accessible from and popular with those living or working in Chelsea and Mayfair.
