Facial Mesotherapy (Mesolifting, Vitamin Injection)
It is a procedure that refreshes and treats tissues, which age earlier than tissues in other parts of the body, such as the face, neck and décolleté areas. Mixtures especially prepared for this purpose are injected into the skin with very fine-tipped needles.
Facial mesotherapy gives freshness and brightness to the skin. The skin’s collagen and elastin synthesis is activated, and the skin is stretched and recovered. Thanks to such drugs administered, brightness and freshness are provided. Cosmetics applied to the surface of the skin cannot pass through the skin barrier and reach the deeper layers; but in the mesotherapy technique, drugs reach the intended target tissue.
What is Mesotherapy ?

- Vitamin K: It regulates the micro-circulation of the blood.
- Amino acids: They are the structural elements of the proteins that repair and restructure of tissue damaged during the aging process.
- Mineral salts: They regulate tissue metabolism by stimulating various biological activities of cells.
- Coenzymes: They improve the biochemical reactions in the tissue of the injection site, and accelerate the repair of the tissue.
- Nucleic acids: They stimulate the synthesis of the skin proteins.
How Often Mesolifting is Applied ?
Sessions take 15 to 30 minutes on the average, and since the needles are extremely fine, aches and pains are at the minimum level.
