How does it work?
A session of no needle mesotherapy lasts for approximately 30 minutes. However, it’s not an immediate fix - you will need to complete 8-10 sessions to achieve results. It is also advisable to follow up your treatment with monthly maintenance sessions for a long lasting effect.
Before your treatment begins, your practitioner will take a medical history to ensure that there is no reason why the procedure might be unsafe for you. They will also discuss the treatment with you in full to ensure that it is the right option to suit your needs.
During no needle mesotherapy, the practitioner applies serums containing active ingredients to the skin. They then use mild electrical currents to help transport these substances through the protective layers of the skin’s surface and into the different skin cells. Many of the ingredients contained in the serums also exist naturally in the human body – no needle mesotherapy just provides you with a bit of a top up.
After a treatment you can return to your normal life straight away without any downtime - always good to hear.
Is it for me?
Even if the thought of needles doesn’t send you into a complete panic, you may prefer no needle mesotherapy to traditional mesotherapy as it avoids the pain and bruising caused by injections. In addition to zapping cellulite, no needle mesotherapy can help to improve skin tone and reduce the appearance of stretch marks and wrinkles – that’s a pretty good bonus.
Due to the electrical output of the devices used in no needle mesotherapy, this treatment is not suitable for pregnant women or those with serious medical conditions. There is also a risk of an allergic reaction to the serums used – if you have a history of allergies you will be advised to take a patch test prior to treatment.
