Mesotherapy VS Microneedling | Skin Needling Treatments

With so many different aesthetic treatments to choose from it can often be difficult to make the right choice for your skin. Both microneedling and mesotherapy present effective and viable options. But how do these differences? And which should you choose?

Microneedling and Mesotherapy are both very effective treatments for acne scars and other unwanted skin conditions. The procedure uses part of your own body’s natural skin-healing power to diminish acne scars and rejuvenate the skin from your face and neck.

Microneedling with Mesotherapy procedure is a treatment that needs to be performed by a specialized esthetician in a clinic or hospital. Its goal is to stimulate collagen and elastin production and new skin cells using a special “pen” and the special vitamin booster technique combined.

Mesotherapy VS Microneedling are they the same?

Mesotherapy and Microneedling treatments both involve needling techniques, however, there are many significant differences too, such as the needle length used, the depth of penetration in the skin and the speed of delivery during treatment. Let’s explore these differences in more detail and how this will affect the treatment itself and the results clients will see.

What is mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is another non-surgical treatment option that involves the use of needles. However, for this treatment only one needle is used at a time. This needle is superfine, and designed to pass below the dermis, straight into the subcutaneous tissue below. By directly targeting deeper skin tissue, cocktails of vitamins, minerals and important amino acids and plant extracts can be injected exactly where they are most needed. This is much more beneficial than topical treatments that cannot permeate into the deeper levels of the dermis. As such, mesotherapy can provide much needed hydration and nourishment for skin cells, helping to keep them healthy and rejuvenated.

How Mesotherapy Treatment Works?

Mesotherapy, unique anti-aging, poly-revitalising complex cocktail that combines hyaluronic acid with 59 skin revitalizing ingredients. It feeds the skin with the essential ingredients to stimulate the dermis repair and renewal process.
Mesotherapy can be used at any age and by any skin type, to correct visible signs of aging. It is particularly suitable for women or men seeking a rested appearance, and healthy-looking skin.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a popular non-surgical treatment option that involves using multiple small needles to penetrate the dermis. By injuring the outer layer of facial skin, on a miniscule level, the body is pushed to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can refresh the facial tissue. The new collagen and elastin cells will replace the older, worn cells, which helps to rejuvenate the skin. As a result, this can be used effectively for fighting the signs of ageing and treating skin imperfections.

When opting for a microneedling treatment, you may be able to select a topical skin product to be added to the face first. The microneedling process allows this product to be better absorbed, improving the results.

How Microneedling Treatment Works?

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy, derma-rolling, or skin needling. It uses very tiny needles to penetrate the skin (0.5mm–1mm) and is often used to heal acne scars and even hair loss. This device can take the shape of a cylinder roller, with small pins rolled across the skin or arranged in a pattern in a tip of a pen-shaped tool.

So, should you choose microneedling or mesotherapy?

When making the decisions between microneedling and mesotherapy for aesthetic treatment, it really comes down to the results you’re looking to achieve.

To tackle the signs of ageing – fine lines and wrinkles are two of the most common and most visually obvious signs of ageing skin. While mesotherapy can help your skin cells be healthier, and can help with very fine superficial wrinkles, microneedling is more effective for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles overall. This is because the needle action causes collagen and elastin production to increase, helping to smooth out facial lines and wrinkles, while also leveling your skin glowing.

For skin texture issues – for dry and flaky skin, or rough bumpy skin, both mesotherapy and microneedling can be effective. The action of microneedling helps to remote cell regeneration and exfoliation on a deeper level, which ensures that outer skin layers are replaced with new cells. However, mesotherapy can add the nourishment and hydration back to your cells, which helps ensure that they stay healthy for longer, keeping your skin clear and fresh. These two treatment options can be used in conjunction to achieve the right result, or you could opt for something totally different, like dermaplaning or a chemical peel.

Skin pigmentation issues – for skin pigmentation issues mesotherapy can be the better option. This is because the injection cocktails contain plenty of essential ingredients for long term healthy skin, that also help to remove sluggish toxins from the skin cells too. This can help to combat dark circles under the eye, as well dark or discoloured patches of skin that can be an unwanted issue.
