Mesotherapy with Innopen
The benefits of mesotherapy
Thanks to mesotherapy (micro-needles), you can soften the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite, scars and wrinkles
Did you know that only 0,3 % of active ingredients contained in your usual cosmetics can cross the skin’s protective barrier? Since your skin is continuously renewing, it creates a barrier that prevents the active ingredients of cosmetics and anti-ageing products to act in-depth into your skin. Consequently, these products stay on the skin’s surface, which makes all creams, serums and other lotions virtually ineffective.
Today, mesotherapy (micro-needles) is a technique that is used in aesthetical medicine to improve the penetration into skin of the skin care products and increase their benefits on wrinkles, skin pores, sagging of skin, pigmentary spots, skin texture, dilated vessels (couperose), scars, cellulite, and many other conditions. Mesotherapy care treatments stimulate your skin to create a new production of collagen and elastin fibers. It corrects the detrimental effects of time on your skin, while slowing down the skin ageing process.
As a result, you get a rejuvenated skin that looks absolutely healthy and glowing!
Description of mesotherapy (micro-needle) treatments
The therapeutic system called micro-needle or mesotherapy is the most efficient process to administrate transdermal cosmetic products into the deep layers of skin. A roller composed of very fine needles is used on the skin to create a multitude of microscopic channels that stimulate the production of collagen and of elastin fibers. These channels improve the penetration of active ingredients and replace the old and damaged skin cells with new cells, which gives back the skin its rejuvenated look. Such a system reduces the appearance of wrinkles, increases the dermal and epidermal thickness, while improving the global texture of your skin.
This revolutionary technique is indicated to treat :
– loss of firmness and sagging of the face and body skin (arms, neck, stomach, thighs, neckline);
– peri-oral wrinkles, crow’s-feet and expression lines;
– acne scars, burns, stretch marks and body imperfections;
– size of ostiums (skins pores);
– rosacea and couperose
Mesotherapy is strongly discouraged when you suffer from severe acne outbursts, unhealed lesions or wounds, psoriasis, herpes, eczema, warts, wounded beauty mark, irritated skin, fungal infections or open wounds.
It is not recommended to combine this program with other skin care treatments that are potentially irritating or making the skin more sensitive. After the treatment, it is important not to expose the skin to sun. You should use an appropriate sunscreen at all times when you go outside.
For hygienic reasons, the users of this treatment must mandatorily own their own micro-needle rollers.
We suggest that you respect the following recommendations before your treatment:
– If you suffer from cold sores (herpes labialis) and still wish to get a treatment of your lips and the contour of the mouth, we strongly recommend that you take an antiviral medication (Valtrex) to avoid an after-treatment eruption of cold sores.
– If you are following a medical treatment involving anti-inflammatory drugs, anticoagulants or antibiotics, certain restrictions apply. Our specialist will explain such restrictions to you at the time of your consultation.
– Avoid any intake of alcohol, AspirineMD or AdvilMD at least 24 hours before your appointment.
The treatment is not recommended to pregnant women or mothers who are breast-feeding.
All treatments last about two hours and are executed under the supervision of a health professional. A skin-surface anaesthetics (topical) is applied to ensure your greatest comfort during the treatments.
A thorough analysis of your condition will allow us to determine the most beneficial product combination for you. Afterwards, your Institut Brabant technician will delicately pass the InnoPen device, which is equipped with a single-use sterile end piece, on your skin. Its very fine spring needles exert a vibrating motion in order to cause microperforations into the skin.
Thanks to its cutting-edge technology, the InnoPen is a medical precision tool that creates, with a vertical plane which makes an angle of 90 degrees, a multitude of microscopic channels . This technology increases the efficiency of the treatment and improves the penetration of the active therapeutic agents selected for you.
This procedure is absolutely pain-free. After the micro-needle treatment, some slight redness and fine flaky skin may appear and last from 24 to 72 hours. They will disappear quickly and progressively, to reveal a healthy skin and a glowing complexion!
