Mesotherapy and Cosmetics Q & A
How does mesotherapy eliminate cellulite?
Mesotherapy is a cosmetic treatment in which multiple injections are placed into the mesoderm, which is the layer of fat just underneath your skin. While mesotherapy may treat numerous cosmetic concerns, Dr. Bissoon performs mesotherapy to eliminate cellulite.
Underneath your skin, you have a natural layer of fat. Under the fat, there’s a layer of connective tissue. Fibrous bands attach the connective tissue to the skin.
Over time, the fibrous bands can tighten, or the amount of fat may increase. In both cases, the bands pull your skin tightly over the fat, creating the dimpled appearance of cellulite. Dr. Bissoon solves the problem by customizing the ingredients in your injections to dissolve the fibrous bands.
What injectable treatments rejuvenate my face and neck?
Dr. Bissoon offers a range of minimally invasive and noninvasive cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate your appearance, including:
Botox injections temporarily relax specific muscles, effectively diminishing the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows.
Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid that plumps up wrinkles around your mouth and nose. It can also add volume to your cheeks and lips. Restylane Lyft™ (formerly called Perlane-L®) boosts facial volume and also treats the back of your hands.
Bellafill® contains a collagen base that adds immediate volume and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) spheres that trigger collagen production. Bellafill diminishes the appearance of nasolabial folds and acne scars.
What other cosmetic procedures might I receive?
Dr. Bissoon offers several advanced cosmetic procedures, including:
If you have loose, sagging skin, and you’d like a skin-tightening procedure, noninvasive Ultherapy is a great option. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to trigger collagen production deep below your skin, creating tighter and firmer skin.
Clear + Brilliant®
Clear + Brilliant is a minimally invasive laser treatment that fights the effects of aging and reduces wrinkles by gently resurfacing your skin.
How does regenerative medicine improve my skin?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a large number of platelets in a small amount of plasma. PRP is produced in the office from a sample of your own blood. Then your prepared PRP is applied to your face and neck after microneedling.
Microneedling creates small punctures in your skin that stimulate collagen production and allow PRP to be absorbed into the tissues. The platelets then release growth factors that accelerate healing and trigger new tissue production. PRP improves your skin’s texture, smooths away wrinkles, and strengthens your skin.
