For many of us, those little holes on our faces known as pores are little more than an unsightly nuisance. But aside from blemishing our complexions, they do serve a purpose: pores house a hair follicle and sebaceous gland and serve as a gateway for sebum, our skin’s natural oil. “A pore is just a route or a channel for these things to reach the skin’s surface,” say our Nexus doctors.
While the size of our pores is largely determined by genetics, some pores tend to be bigger than others because of the size of the hair follicle and oil gland. Poor hygiene and the resulting dirt, oil and dead skin cells that often build up can also make pores look bigger. “Pores are generally clogged with sebum and dead skin cells, which naturally slough off from the side of the pore,” claim our doctors from Nexus Clinic. “If a pore becomes clogged, that will temporarily stretch the pore and make it more apparent.”
Mesotherapy is a technique whereby microscopic quantities of medical grade pharmaceuticals, vitamins, minerals and amino acids are administered into the upper and middle layers of the skin in order to treat a variety of ailments.
This method has gained special recognition within aesthetic medicine as it is the most effective non-surgical technique for skin rejuvenation and treatment of skin conditions on both the face and body. No one topical application of cream can deliver the biological active ingredients into the skin cells and activate skin metabolism as effectively as mesotherapy.
Using special cocktails of peptide solutions from USA, Australia, UK and Europe, your pores and skin texture can smoothen out very significantly.
Why Choose Mesotherapy?
- It is progressive and very effective.
- It is safe, with no side effects.
- It offers an alternative to plastic surgery.
- It requires little or no post-treatment down time (redness may last for a maximum of one day).
The Micro-Injections Mesotherapy Technique
The micro-injections technique administers the mesotherapy cocktail by means of intra-dermic micro-injections, placing the nutrients directly into the target tissues. The needle also creates micro perforations that induce a healing process, which stimulates your skin to produce collagen and elastin – two of the key building blocks of skin.
Does Mesotherapy Hurt?
With the micro-injection method, most people only feel minimal discomfort; however, if you do feel discomfort there is a topical anaesthetic that can be applied to the skin to remove this sensation. There are no side effects for this procedure.
Is There Any Downtime After The Procedure?
The treatment requires no down time which enables most people to return to their normal activities straight away.
How Quick Is The Result?
The speed of the results depends on the extent of the condition or area being treated. Normally it will take 1-2 days for results to visibly appear after the treatment.
Will The Results Last?
The results do last, however we cannot stop the natural ageing process. Therefore we recommend regular maintenance treatments. This applies to both face and body treatments.
