Let me be clear. I am NOT a fan of needles. Not at all! Yes, I know we all have to deal with the occasional prick from time to time, but I offer my arm only when I have to and nothing more than that.
So, recently I was at Judy Gail’s, my amazing esthetician’s salon in Dallas for my monthly facial. During the treatment she asked me if I would be her ‘guinea pig’ for about 4 weeks to test a new service she was interested in offering to her clients. The first question out of my mouth – “are there needles involved?” She laughed heartily.
The service? Needle-Free Mesotherapy Infusion. I mean really? Is that a mouthful or what? So with the word ‘needle-free’ I began to listened. Eagerly.
Infusion mesotherapy is a pain-free and a needle-free alternative to traditional mesotherapy which provides safe and effective non-invasive trans-dermal delivery of therapeutic solutions. Unlike a serum that nourishes the outer layers of your skin; the mesotherapy infusion goes deeper and nourishes your skin not only from the outside, but also from the inside by opening up a microscopic channel in your skin to achieve the penetration needed to get beneath the outer layers. It’s be around since the 1950’s which it actually involved – needles!
I actually bring my tried and true skincare products (which I know work well with my skincare regimen) with me and Judy covers my face with the mixture of all products for the treatment. Note: You must remove all metal jewelry so the only metal left is in my teeth. You hold a metal pole to ‘ground’ you and the process begins. Yes, you do feel a ‘zap’ in your teeth throughout the treatment but it is quite bearable. Trust me on this!
I definitely saw visible results after my second treatment, but you will need 4-6 treatments spaced two weeks apart for the full effect. Following that it is recommended to begin maintenance treatments every 6-8 weeks. By the way, at the end of the 6th treatment I noticed my skin had a glow and even better my little sister, Jill, commented at our lunch hours later my skin looked smoother as well.
