Fractional mesotherapy is significantly different from the classical injection method of introducing mesococtails into the dermis, but it not only has not lost its merits, but has also acquired certain positive features that deserve additional discussion. How does this technique differ from popular alternatives and what are its distinguishing features?
Principle of the procedure
Fractional mesotherapy is not carried out manually, a special automated device is used to carry out the procedure (an alternative to hardware exposure is laser processing, exposure to ultrasound and other techniques). Its effect is extremely selective, the device is used to treat local problem areas, while healthy skin between them is not affected. Skin cell renewal and rejuvenation of the problem area begins quite quickly, after the first or second procedure, the patient can evaluate significant visible results.
Positive changes in this case are due to the introduction of a special composition and selective violation of the integrity of the skin. External influences stimulate the production of elastin and collagen fibers, accelerate cell renewal, and increase their immune properties.
What is a device for fractional mesotherapy? First of all, it should be noted that there are several types of devices of this type. The main component of any model is a nozzle with a large number of small needles. Their distinctive features are a unique sharpening and a special coating of silver, which minimizes inflammatory processes during violation of the integrity of the skin.
Needles provide the introduction of the composition to a depth of 0.5 to 2.5 millimeters, the necessary parameters can be changed directly during the manipulation. The fractions subjected to processing are small in size and are located at equidistant distance from each other. Their number is quite small, it is about one fifth of the total skin area of one zone (for example, the face).
Why, then, do not all areas require injections? The thing is that healthy skin should not be adjusted, in this way, you will ensure its tone and do not let it be lazy. In addition, normal areas of the dermis will help neighboring areas recover faster and create new, healthy cells.
Indications for conduction
Fractional mesotherapy of the face is the most common procedure, but this technique is equally effective for caring for the skin of the body. The direct indications of such an intervention include:
- mimic and age wrinkles;
- soft tissue ptosis;
- acne and acne scars;
- increased pigmentation;
- pale skin color;
- bald patches on the scalp;
- excessive oily skin;
- enlarged pores and a tendency to form black dots;
- moderately expressed body fat.
The main stages of exposure
The first stage of therapy is prior consultation with the patient. As a rule, during a conversation, a cosmetologist identifies existing problems and their degree of complexity, treatment regimen (number of sessions and the duration of a break between them), as well as the specific type of drug used. On average, a full course of treatment involves attending 4-6 procedures.
Such components as hyaluronic acid, aminoxylates, vitamins of various groups, minerals, plant extracts, and individual substances of animal origin are most often used to create optimal mesococtails. Among other things, drugs that are introduced into the dermis may also contain certain medications.
Processing problem areas with the device does not take much time. Fractional mesotherapy usually lasts no more than 30 minutes. Previously, the skin must be cleaned of impurities, treated with alcohol or another antiseptic, anesthetic cream for this procedure is not required. The patient reviews contain information that microneedle mesotherapy is very easily tolerated, while the apparatus is moving, only a slight tingling is felt that does not cause unpleasant sensations.
Certain side effects may occur within a few days after the procedure. In most cases, they pass literally in a few hours. As a rule, a negative reaction of the body is manifested by mild swelling, redness, bruising, slight itching, or moderate pain.
Recommendations for the rehabilitation period
The recovery period is short and depends on the individual characteristics of the patient’s body. Expert reviews indicate that, on average, rehabilitation lasts no more than 3-6 days. There are no special requirements for this period of time; try to pay increased attention to hygiene procedures, use a minimum of cosmetics and do not go outside in the heat or severe frost. A strict ban is imposed on visiting a solarium, bathhouse, steam room and other institutions of a similar nature. It will be useful to reduce physical activity.
Of course, the technique also has certain contraindications, which must be taken into account even at the stage of planning the procedure. In most cases, restrictions are common to any type of exposure. These include conditions such as:
- first two months after birth
- skin diseases and inflammatory processes in the area, the treatment of which is required;
- diseases of the nervous system;
- fever, fever, flu and other viral diseases;
- exacerbation of chronic ailments of internal organs;
- bleeding disorder.
Among other things, manipulations should not be carried out immediately after any other aggressive cosmetic treatment (for example, peeling).
The price of fractional mesotherapy may be slightly higher than in the case of classical injection mesotherapy, however, you do not need to spend money on local anesthesia. Cost is usually determined by the following factors:
- type and amount of mesococktail used;
- size and location of the problem area;
- pricing policy of the beauty salon.
Before and after photos
Here is a short list of advantages that determine the many positive reviews of a significant number of women about the fractional procedure. These include:
- Short rehabilitation period that does not require special care.
- Significant effect according to the results of manipulations, occurring after several sessions.
- No need for local anesthesia, almost complete painlessness during exposure.
- Affordable price.
- The duration of the results.
Fractional mesotherapy is one of the most popular types of hardware exposure. Injections are carried out using a special nozzle with disposable needles, which processes only certain problem areas of the skin, without affecting a healthy dermis. Thanks to the intervention of this nature, the rehabilitation period is significantly reduced, and positive changes occur much faster.
