Bespoke Nutrient Cocktails and Microneedling: The Future of Skin Therapy

One of the most exciting advances in skin therapy is the combination of microneedling and mesotherapy, which can help to improve skin texture, tone, and hydration. Louise - one of our Aesthetic Nurse Specialists explores the benefits of microneedling and mesotherapy for skin rejuvenation and how Profile Aesthetic is leading the way in providing safe and effective cosmetic treatments. She explains the science behind these treatments, the benefits of combining them, and answers common questions about mesotherapy and microneedling.

What is Microneedling and Mesotherapy?

Microneedling and mesotherapy are both forms of skin therapy that can help with skin rejuvenation. Microneedling involves using a device that contains small needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. These microchannels stimulate the skin's natural healing process, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are essential proteins that help to maintain skin structure, resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. At Profile Aesthetic, we use a highly precise and controlled microneedling technique that minimises discomfort and downtime.

Mesotherapy, on the other hand, involves injecting a bespoke nutrient cocktail into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate it. This nutrient-rich solution contains essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids tailored to your specific skin concerns, providing a highly targeted and personalised treatment. At Profile Aesthetic, we offer mesotherapy without needles, which uses a specialised device to deliver the nutrient cocktail to the skin's surface.

While mesotherapy without needles is available, we find that combining it with microneedling is more effective. By using microneedling, we enable the bespoke nutrient cocktail to penetrate deeper into the skin, enhancing the results of the treatment.

The Science Behind Mesotherapy and Microneedling

Recent scientific studies have shown that combining microneedling with mesotherapy can help to improve skin texture, tone, and hydration. Microneedling creates microchannels in the skin, which can increase the absorption of nutrients from the mesotherapy solution. Mesotherapy delivers a nutrient-rich solution to the skin, providing essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that stimulate collagen and elastin production. Together, these two treatments can help to promote optimal skin rejuvenation.

Benefits of Microneedling and Mesotherapy

Microneedling and mesotherapy have numerous benefits for the skin, including:

  • Stimulating collagen and elastin production: Both treatments stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
  • Improving skin texture: Both treatments can improve the texture of the skin, making it smoother and more radiant.
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles: Both treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful-looking complexion.
  • Treating acne scars: Microneedling can improve the appearance of acne scars, while mesotherapy can reduce acne-related inflammation.
  • Reducing hyperpigmentation: Mesotherapy can reduce hyperpigmentation by delivering a customised blend of ingredients directly into the skin.
  • Improving the overall skin quality and appearance of the decolletage

Advances in Microneedling and Mesotherapy

At Profile Aesthetic, we use the latest advances in microneedling and mesotherapy to give our clients the best possible results. Microneedling with mesotherapy is one of the most advanced skin rejuvenation techniques currently available. It is a minimally invasive treatment that requires little downtime and has been shown to be highly effective in treating a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and tone, and even acne scars.

In recent years, there have been significant advances in microneedling that have enhanced its effectiveness in skin rejuvenation. At Profile Aesthetic, we use a bespoke nutrient cocktail that combines microneedling with the power of growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C, to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, helping to improve texture and firmness:

  • Growth factors - naturally occurring proteins that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, helping to improve texture and firmness
  • Hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring molecule that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, providing essential hydration and plumpness to the skin
  • Vitamin C - a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from free radical damage and promotes collagen synthesis

The use of hyaluronic acid, growth factors, and vitamin C in mesotherapy and microneedling treatments is based on solid scientific principles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin that plays a key role in maintaining moisture and elasticity, and can be lost as we age. Growth factors, on the other hand, stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, which can improve skin texture and firmness. Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, helps to protect the skin from environmental damage and also plays a key role in collagen production.

By combining these three ingredients with microneedling, we can deliver a tailored treatment that targets your specific skin concerns and promotes optimal skin rejuvenation. Our precise and controlled microneedling technique ensures that the nutrient cocktail is delivered exactly where it's needed in the skin, resulting in a safe, effective, and highly targeted treatment. When these three ingredients are combined in a bespoke nutrient cocktail, they can work synergistically to provide a powerful anti-aging effect.

We also offer PRP filler treatment, which is a new advance in the technology. PRP filler involves using platelet-rich plasma from the patient's own blood to rejuvenate the skin. This treatment can be used in conjunction with microneedling and mesotherapy to enhance the results further.

Is Microneedling Painful?

Microneedling can cause some discomfort, but a topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure to minimise discomfort.

How many mesotherapy treatments are needed?

The number of mesotherapy treatments needed depends on your unique needs and desired outcomes. Most people require several treatments spaced a few weeks apart.

Are there any side effects of microneedling and mesotherapy?

Both treatments can cause some redness and swelling, but this should subside within a few days. There is also a risk of infection and bruising, so it is important to choose a reputable practitioner, such as our specialist nurse practitioners at Profile Aesthetic.
