Mint Wellness Center Offers Skin Rejuvenation Technique
Without a doubt, your skin is the most noticeable thing about you. It can be the physical evidence of healthy living or otherwise. Every day our skin encounters different conditions that make it fade. It could be the scorching summer heat, tobacco use, lousy skincare products, or a sign of aging. Underlying health conditions are another culprit. Your skin can even start to develop a dull appearance if you aren’t drinking enough water. But these changes are reversible through a process known as skin rejuvenation.
What is Skin Rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment, which aims to renew a youthful appearance to the skin. This treatment is more of a necessity than a luxury because unfavorable changes to the skin are bound to occur. For example, our bodies produce 1% less collagen every year after age 20. Therefore, external provisions should tighten the loose skin and brighten it up.
Different treatment modalities are available to treat the various skin irregularities on the body. Some of these techniques are surgical, while others range from laser and light treatments to chemical peels and mesotherapy. Each treatment option requires unique invasiveness and depth.
One of the most popular items available at Mint Wellness Center is mesotherapy. This treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses subcutaneous injections of a mixture of vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, and enzymes to renew your skin and recontour the body. Mesotherapy is mild and can be used to treat specific areas.
How Effective is the Procedure?
When mesotherapy began in the early ’50s, the procedure was primarily used to alleviate pain. It now has other applications several decades later, including skin hydration and stimulating hair growth. It has also yielded fantastic results in concealing fine lines and wrinkles. And it’s also helpful in removing excess fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, and face.
The treatment involves being pricked with micro-needles from a medical gun directly over the affected sites. It typically takes 30 minutes to 1 hour to administer the treatment, and sometimes, this includes the period it takes topical anesthesia to become effective. Mesotherapy comes with little to no pain, and almost no recovery time is required.
Patients can receive this treatment regularly (every 7 to 10 days in the early stages). The number of sessions needed depends on the individual. But they can expect to see results after three weeks. Sometimes they have to continue with the treatment for four to six weeks to produce a satisfactory result.
Unexpected allergic reactions are likely to occur during treatment; hence, receiving mesotherapy from a professional is advisable. A consultation with your skincare specialist will determine the specific treatment type to revitalize your skin. They’ll better understand possible ingredients you may be allergic to. Then after receiving skin rejuvenation treatment, the patient must be committed to maintaining their skin from now on so that the restoration will be long-lasting.
