As skin ages, our bodies produce less natural collagen and visible skin damage (wrinkles, fine lines and sagging) actually happens below the surface of the skin. MysoVytal is an injection of serum in-between the dermis and epidermis where collagen naturally resides - encouraging plumping from within, helping it to repair, reducing the signs of aging.
This treatment was developed to solve the problem that conventional methods are unable to deliver, implementing product into the dermal layer. Particles larger than 200nm cannot penetrate the Epidermis. This means that substances such as vitamins and Hyaluronic acid do not pass through the Epidermis, unless they are injected (as with fillers or Mesotherapy) or holes are punched (as with Fractional laser or dermal rollers) or the delivery is enhanced with laser treatment.
Most skin treatments use products which sit on the surface of the skin and less than 20% of these will be absorbed by the body. The peel used prior to a MesoVytal facial exfoliates the dead skin cells allowing new regrowth, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin which will improve rough skin.
The Meso Vytal procedure itself causes minor trauma to the skin, which along with the serum further stimulates production of new collagen to maximise the effect. Non toxic hexapeptides in the serum work in the same way as botox; plumping the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Areas which can be treated are the face, hands, decolletage and cleavage.
How does it work?
How many treatments do I need?
MesoVytal Cell Boost Concept Facials are suitable as a single treatment before an important event or for longer lasting results, a course of six treatments is advised. It is recommended that the first four treatments are carried out over one month and then a maintenance treatment is carried out monthly to retain the results. For optimum results a course of 6-8 treatments are recommended.
The benefits of the treatment can be seen and felt immediately, unlike botox which takes up to 10 days to work fully. MesoVytal is a great choice for a one off treat for your skin.
What does the treatment involve?
Step 1. The AHA Peel (Vytal = Mild 5%)
This peel is applied to the skin and left for 3-10mins (depending on skin Type). The dryer and thicker the skin the longer it will take to “pink up”. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) work mainly as an exfolient. They cause the surface cells of the epidermis (Stratum Corneum) to become “unglued”, allowing the dead skin cells to slough off allowing regrowth of new skin. AHA’s may even stimulate the production of collagen and Elastin. AHA’s can improve wrinkling, mottled pigmentation of photo damaged skin and superficial roughness. In skin care products AHA’s work best in a concentration of 5%-8% and a PH of 3-4.
Step 2. The Meso Vytal Cell Boost Treatment
After the AHA Peel is thoroughly removed, the Serum is applied to the skin. Using the Meso Vytal system, a needle cartridge with 18 points on a convex plate is used to work the serum into the skin at a depth of 0.2-0.3mm (needle depth is 0.5mm). This ensures the product is placed into the Dermal-Epidermal junction where it can be absorbed to create maximum beneficial effect.
Step 3. Aftercare
At the end of your treatment you will see slight redness and a small amount of swelling around areas that have been specifically targeted (wrinkles, scars). This is normal and should reduce within a couple of hours. The aftercare cream is gently applied to the skin, you will be given the rest of the tube to use at home. Aftercare contains Panthanol, Macadamia nut oil and Grape seed oil, these further hydrate and moisturise the skin.
Clients with Acne/ Roacutane, wait for a period of 6 months after medication is stopped.
Clients with Psoriasis, Excema, Neurodermatitis, Immunodeficiency, Active acne, Blood clotting disorders and Hypersensitive skin should not be treated.
Clients with Red veins, allergies and long term steroid use should be treated with caution.
Botox clients - wait 2 weeks post treatment
Dermal filler clients - wait 3 weeks post filler
Does it hurt?
No, the needles are plastic and less invasive than other skin needling techniques
How long is the treatment?
Total treatment time is between 30-45 minutes, this includes Pre-peel time.
What will I look like afterwards?
You may look slightly pink/red, areas that have been targeted may be more red, but this will quickly subside. Areas of scarring may be slightly swollen and may take a day or two to recover. It is recommended to leave the skin clear of make-up for as long as possible, preferably overnight. If you need to disguise redness, please only use mineral make-up. You may experience some peeling and this is very normal, It is the dehydrated skin leaving the Stratum Corneum ( outermost layer).
Why is MesoVytal different to Dermal Rollers?
Because Vytal is less invasive, there is no need for numbing cream, which means the products are more easily absorbed and able to work more effectively. The small contoured needle head means treatment is more specific, with fine lines, scars, open pores and even the eyelids can be targeted.
When will I see the results?
You will see results after 1 treatment, however the effects are culmative. You will notice a difference after 2 treatments and by session / week 3-4 you will see clearly visible results. Please also remember that the skin takes approximately 28-35 days to go through a cycle of cellular renewal (the basal cells moving up to the surface) therefore the skin continues to improve over a period of months post treatment course.
What aftercare products do I use?
You will be given an aftercare cream, it is not necessary to purchase specialist products, you may continue to use your chosen skincare regime. However they must contain an SPF of 30 or above to protect the surface of the skin and guard against hyper pigmentation.
