Mesolis ~ As the body ages, the skin's appearance becomes more loose and dull. Eventually, wrinkles and fine lines will develop and the skin may begin to dehydrate.
With factors such as the pollution, sun exposure, tobacco, hormones and harsh weather, the skin must maintain its integrity and health. Hydrating the skin is essential in order to protect it from the environment.
Mesolis is a hydrating treatment that aids in repairing and nourishing the skins dermis. Once the skin has regained its tone and elasticity, the complexion appears more youthful and radiant.
Mesolis treatments consist of a series of superficial micro-injections made up of Hyaluronic Acid (which is a natural component of the skin) and Glycerin gels. The hyaluronic acid and gels are composed in a lab and are not made from animal origins.
This process of rejuvenating the dermis offers excellent results for the Face, Eye contours, Neck & Decollete as well as the Hands.
- Face ~ 2-3
- Eyes ~ 4
- Hands ~ 2-3
- Neck & decollete ~ 3-4
There is down time, so plan on taking a day or two to stay home.
Treatments will be 2-3 weeks apart for the first 3 treatments, followed by the fourth treatment 2 months after and then at 6 month intervals. For deeper wrinkles, additional treatments may be required.
Each appointment will be 1.5 hours duration. If you would like to know more about Mesolis or have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.
Mesolis: Pre and Post Treatment Instructions
- Avoid alcoholic beverages within 48-24 hours of your treatment, specifically red wine.
- Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, etc.), Aspirin, Vitamin E, or Ginkgo Biloba one week prior to treatment. This will reduce the possible side effects of bruising and/or swelling in the treated area(s).
- Avoid products/treatments that boost metabolism (Diet pills and Endermologie) one week prior to treatment.
- Discontinue Retin-A three (3) days before and three (3) days after treatment.
- You cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding to receive this treatment.
- Patients who have a history of recurring cold soars (Herpes simplex type1) should start oral Valtrex 500 mg tablets 2 days prior to your Fillers treatment and continue for 3 days after treatment.
- If you develop a cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. prior to your appointment, you must reschedule.
- If you have a special event or vacation coming up, schedule your treatment at least 2 weeks in advance.
- After your treatment, you may experience some redness, itching and/or swelling. This should last less than seven days. Cold compresses may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling. If the redness and/or swelling or any other reactions do not go away after seven days, please contact your physician.
- If the pain is uncomfortable, use acetaminophen (Tylenol, Atasol) following the directions on the bottle. Do not use ASA (Aspirin) as it may increase bruising at the site of injection.
- Avoid touching the treated area for six hours following the treatment. After that, you can wash the area gently.
- It is important that the amount of movement in the area injected be immobilized as much as possible for the next 48-72 hours (minimize smoking and/or drinking from a straw). Your new implant requires this time to settle.
- Sunbathing and cold outdoor activities should be avoided until the redness and/or swelling go down.
