In early childhood, parents told us about the benefits of ascorbic acid for immunity and health. In fact, this amazing substance not only helps people not get sick, but also to stay beautiful and young longer. The human body does not synthesize it on its own, which is why it is so important to provide measures for additional replenishment of the component. So, mesotherapy with vitamin C will help your skin get the necessary boost of vitality and protection, as well as eliminate a number of existing problems, including facial wrinkles and increased pigmentation.
Indications for the procedure and result
In what cases can vitamin C be used in cosmetic injections? It should be noted right away that the substance is a part of many mesococtails in a small amount, however, its increased content is usually used to solve the following problems:
- increased pigmentation of the skin of the face and body, freckles;
- pale, unhealthy skin color, its reduced tone, primary signs of aging and wilting;
- the manifestation of ptosis in the early stages, reduced elasticity of the dermis;
- the appearance of spider veins under the skin;
- mimic wrinkles.
Ascorbic acid accelerates the synthesis of collagen fibers, making the skin more dense and supple. At the same time, this substance is an antioxidant and helps to cleanse local areas of the dermis from toxins and toxins, forms a powerful local immunity, strengthens the walls of blood vessels. The skin after a series of injections with vitamin C becomes smoother, shiny, visually and actually healthy.
Mesotherapy with Vitamin C
Before proceeding to the “beauty injections”, the specialist examines the patient and prescribes him special preparations that take into account the individual skin condition and body features. Vitamin C is never used for injections in its pure form, this does not provide the necessary strongly pronounced effect. Most often, auxiliary components such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, natural plant extracts and vitamins of groups A and E are added to mesococktails.
Mesotherapy with vitamin C is carried out according to the classical scheme. The skin is treated with alcohol to minimize the risk of infection and inflammation. Then a special anesthetic cream is applied to the problem area, which relieves discomfort to a depth of 5 millimeters, as a rule, it begins to act after 10-15 minutes. At the end of the allotted time, the specialist proceeds with the injection.
The whole procedure usually takes about half an hour. During this period, the specialist makes dozens of injections manually. This technique requires considerable knowledge and experience from a cosmetologist. The needle of the syringe should be as strong and thin as possible, the only way to introduce a mesococtail into the skin of the face and not provoke various complications.
Rejuvenation and treatment with vitamin C does not have any specifics. Thus, preparations containing ascorbic acid are introduced into the dermis according to classical technology. At the same time, there are reviews of individual patients containing information about the increased pain of such injections. Perhaps such opinions are fairly true, but any discomfort depends primarily on the level of your pain threshold.
The first positive changes after the procedure can be assessed in approximately 24 hours. In total, in order to achieve the desired result, it will be necessary to attend approximately 3-5 sessions (in some cases more) with breaks from 7 to 10 days. Mesotherapy forms an accumulation effect, therefore, by the last procedure, the result will reach its maximum. At the same time, one should not forget about the temporary nature of the achievements achieved (up to 6-8 months).
Rehabilitation after the procedure
Mesotherapy is considered an atraumatic procedure, which is why after its completion, patients can immediately return to their usual activities. There are no specific recommendations for rehabilitation. Restrictions are imposed on visits to baths, saunas, and a solarium. In addition, it is recommended not to wash yourself with hot water, you should be less likely to be in the scorching sun or in the cold. If signs of inflammation appear, treat the skin with an antiseptic composition.
Possible side effects and contraindications
Mesotherapy with ascorbic acid is really very useful for the vast majority of patients, while do not forget that even the most positive procedures can be accompanied by unpleasant phenomena. Thus, the human body protests against aggressive interference in its natural processes. Do not be afraid or worried about side effects, they are basically completely safe and go away on their own. These include:
- soreness (during injections and some time after them);
- itching and allergic reactions;
- swelling (as reactions to a violation of the integrity of the skin or to the drug itself);
- papules and local redness;
In most cases, side effects disappear on the second or third day. If this does not happen and negative manifestations continue to develop and persist for more than 7 days, you should temporarily interrupt treatment and find out the causes of the painful situation.
In addition to possible side effects, a fairly wide range of contraindications can be attributed to the disadvantages of the procedure. So, mesotherapy is not performed with:
- diseases of the circulatory system;
- exacerbation of chronic diseases of internal organs, especially the heart, kidneys and liver;
- hormonal changes in the first months after childbirth;
- allergies or individual intolerance to ascorbic acid;
- sensitive skin, on which injection scars often appear;
- flu, fever, fever;
- epilepsy, oncology, diabetes.
How much does mesotherapy with vitamin C cost?
The specified amount consists of several factors:
- the particular variety of mesococktail used;
- the amount of drug used for the procedure;
- pricing policy of the cosmetologist conducting the manipulation;
- the availability of additional services (for example, anesthesia, cosmetics for skin care after injections);
- technique for introducing the agent (manually or using a special device).
It should be remembered that mesotherapy is carried out by the course, that is, it implies the passage of several procedures, a single session can not lead to the formation of a pronounced and lasting result.
Mesotherapy based on preparations containing vitamin C is most often carried out with the aim of eliminating freckles, pigmentation and facial wrinkles. Mesotherapy not only provides cosmetic changes, but also helps to develop the protective function of the body, make the skin more elastic and healthy. To achieve a pronounced result, it is recommended to pass at least 4 sessions.
