Summary
Needle mesotherapy is a method that uses a variety of injection techniques to deliver active ingredients directly to the affected areas.
In needle mesotherapy, different injection techniques are used, depending from the depth of puncture and skin problem. Injections can be made manually, using the right size of the needle and syringe, and mechanically - using a mesotherapy pistol. The puncture techniques used in mesotherapy differ from other techniques. The choice of the right tool and methodology depends on the location, the indication, the existing disease, the active substances used, the condition of the skin, the age and the sensitivity of the person being treated.
Mesotherapy is an effective way to eliminate many skin diseases. In aesthetic dermatology and cosmetology, it is used to improve the condition of the skin, remove signs of aging, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, reduce scars and stretch marks, eliminate cellulite and treat baldness.
