In 1793, French scientist Antoine Francois from France first saw positive therapeutic effects by injecting natural substances subcutaneously. Later in 1952, Michel Pistor coined the term Mesotherapy and the French Society of Mesotherapy was created shortly after. Today, Mesotherapy has variable uses from dissolving fat cells to repairing connective tissues in joints. At our clinic, we use a form of natural low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid to fill the face, similar to dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm.

What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a subcutaneous (shallow and superficial) injection treatment for the skin. During a Mesotherapy treatment, natural ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid gel are used to rehydrate the skin and induce collagen production, essentially benefiting fine lines, wrinkles, Crow's feet, chin lines, lip lines, furrows and nasolabial folds. The injections will cause slight red micro-puncture spots as a side-effect. However, these puncture spots usually subside after 24 hours.
Does Mesotherapy hurt?
The injectable solution does not sting or burn. Patients usually report a pain level of 1-3 out of 10, with 10 being high for pain. Mesotherapy sessions are 30 minute sessions. Our Naturopaths numb the area with a pharmaceutical grade anesthetic cream for the first 10 to 15 minutes to help minimize pain.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a series of 4 Mesotherapy treatments at weekly intervals to start. This allows the body to recognize the Hyaluronic acid and produce it's own collagen as a response to the excess Hyaluronic acid. Then, we recommend treatments every 2 to 3 weeks for a couple of times and finally monthly maintenance. During the healing process, more fibrin, elastin and growth factors are produced and it re-trains the skin to produce more collagen.
What are the side effects of Mesotherapy?
Because we use an all-natural and 100% pure Hyaluronic Acid gel, the chances of your body reacting to it is very low. That being said, there are some individuals who are highly sensitive to many things and may react with a hypersensitive reaction. This reaction may include hives, rash or numbness and tingling in the treated area. We suggest keeping a Benadryl on hand to treat such reactions. Otherwise, other minor side effects may include pin-point bleeding, bruising, itchiness and minor pain. Most of these side effects are not long lasting. Your skin should look normal and even more youthful after a good night of rest.
How is Mesotherapy billed?
This treatment is performed by our Naturopathic Doctors and are listed as a Naturopathic Visit. Please note that the Supplies portion of $10 is billed separately.
I'm ready to book my first Mesotherapy treatment. What do I do?
You will need to book an "Initial Natural Esthetics Visit" with one of our Naturopathic Doctors. This 15-minute initial consultation will allow time for the Naturopathic Doctor assess your skin, take your vitals, go over the details of the treatment with you and suggest other treatments if necessary. Immediately following the initial visit, and if indicated still, the Naturopath will prepare and numb the face and perform mesotherapy injections to the areas of concern. Please note that this visit must be booked with a Naturopathic Doctor as our Acupuncturists do not provide Mesotherapy injections.
