Mesotherapy Microneedling FAQ

Mesotherapy Infusion through micro-needling is a skin enhancing treatment done using the Scalpa Surface Pen or derma pen paired with mesotherapy topical serums. Micro-needling allows for the skin to be broken for the serums to enter at different depths. Micro-needling alone offers many benefits for skin enhancement. 

Benefits of Micro-needling: 

• Cost effectiveness (less expensive than other resurfacing procedures) 

• Improved effectiveness of topical agents used in conjunction with micro-needling 

• Pore size reduction 

• Scar reduction including acne scars 

• Improved appearance of stretch marks 

• Wrinkle reduction 

• Fat Reduction 

• Suitable for most skin types 

Our mesotherapy serums are designed to help a variety of skin concerns such as scars, boosting collagen, encouraging hair growth, fat reduction, repairing broken capillaries, acne and much more. Our serums can also be used topically as part of your regular skincare regimen

What can I expect from Meso Infusion serums and procedure?

The skin is cleaned and Scalpa numbing cream may be applied to lessen discomfort. The needle cartridge is selected based on the serum and area we will be treating. A small handheld pen like device with a sterile, disposable tip with 12 or 36 tiny needles is then used to pierce the skin. Our needling pen’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depth allow needles to pierce the skin’s layer at 90 degrees and increase the absorption of products. After the treatment, soothing Rehab is used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin. 

How will I look after treatment?

Most people will experience mild redness and possibly some swelling. The same way you may feel with a mild sunburn. Effects may last for 24-48 hours and there may be pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Within several days to several weeks you will notice a smoother, brighter, and more radiant appearance, however, the full effects of the treatment do not appear until several months later. 

What is the down time like?

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend Rehab or hyaluronic acid after the treatment, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup may be used after the procedure. 

What effects does micro-needling have on the skin?

  • Improves the appearance of stretch marks 
  • Reduces pore size 
  • Improves the quality and texture of the skin 
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Improves the look of disfiguring scars from surgery, accidents or acne. 

Will it be painful?

Numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment which drastically minimizes or eliminates any pain altogether. 

Are there any risks?

The tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and because the procedure is performed under clinical conditions, the likelihood of infection occurring is extremely low. 

How many treatments do I need and how often?

Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, our meso serums, and the extent of the damage at the beginning. Micro-needling can be used on all skin parts of the body. Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment. 

Can micro-needling be performed for all skin types and colors?

Absolutely. It’s safe and effective for all types and colors of skin. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. 

What are the side effects?

There are virtually no negative side effects from the procedure. None have been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide. 

How much does the Mesotherapy Microneedling Infusion treatment cost?

Mesotherapy Microneedling Infusion treatments are performed in conjunction with a pre-selected special Mesotherapy serum designed for a special intent. The procedure takes about 45-60 minutes and cost can starts at $150.
