Mesotherapy

What is Mesotherapy & How Does It Work?

Juliette Armand's Mesotech range

Ameson is Juliette Armand's wonderful hi-tech medical grade mesotherapy products offering a wide range of professional solutions for targeted and personalised skin care. Hyaluronic acid is the starting point and foundation stone of the entire Ameson range. There are serums to treat both the face and body.

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can be carried out on any part of the face and body. The serum, or cocktail of serums, is worked into the skin where it seeps into the skin through the small vertical channels created by Dermapen’s 12 titanium needles. The channels are only open for about 10 minutes. The body starts the process of healing immediately and closes the channels. The serum gets to work and by day 20 you should start to see results.

HYAL 3.5%

Active ingredients - Hyaluronic Acid.

Action – Hydration, wrinkle smoothing, firming, regenerating.

Indications – Dehydrated skin, deep wrinkle, dull completion, loss of skin’s firmness and volume, small superficial scars, sagging skin.

Information - Despite the name, hyaluronic acid, it is not an acid. It’s a sugar. It is found naturally in the body. It lubricates our joints and keeps the skin plump.  Levels fall as we age. It is the ultimate moisturizer. It makes skin dewier and plumper.

Further Information on the Active Ingredients - Hyaluronic acid has the ability to bind water up to 1000-fold of its weight, giving tired, dehydrated skin a good drink, plumping out wrinkles and making the skin smoother.

Matrixyl 3000 10%-Argireline 10%

Active ingredients - Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8

Action – Reduction of wrinkles, firming, restructuring (great for mature skin).

Indications – Photoaging, fine wrinkles & expression lines, deep wrinkles, sagging skin.

Information - Matrixyl 3000 (combination of the active ingredients mentioned above) works to help skin regain its elasticity, become stronger, and look more youthful. Matrixyl 3000 works by replicating the collagen breakdown which stimulates your skin to replenish lost collagen. This innovative process is what helps the Matrixyl 3000 become a long term anti-aging solution. The action of Matrixyl 3000 combined with the action of Argireline, which prevents neurotransmission resulting in a decrease of muscle contraction and expression wrinkle formation, is an excellent anti-wrinkle, anti-aging serum. Argireline Botox injections are made are made of similar peptide compounds and because of that working a similar manner, but much milder. Effective both in reducing existing facial wrinkles and in preventing expression wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contraction. The perfect Botox alternative for those who do not wish to lose their full range of facial expression. A definite ingredient if you wish to improve the appearance of expression lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and to reduce “bar code” lines on the lips. Palmitoyl Oligopeptide – Anti-aging peptide with the same effect as retinol, but with fewer side effects. Also known to assist in the process of skin repair and renewal. Slows the natural breakdown of collagen. Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 – Anti-aging and anti-inflammatory. Reduces problems with skin roughness, fine lines, thin skin and wrinkles. Induces natural collagen production for skin healing and rejuvenation. May help treat rosacea. Reduces the appearance of uneven skin tones. Acetyl Hexapeptide 8 Anti-aging peptide. Prevents muscle contractions, thereby softening wrinkles. Eliminates fine wrinkles.

AA2G 20%

Active Ingredients – Ascorbic Acid-2 Glucoside (Vitamin C)

Action – Antioxidation, UV protection, regeneration, firming, radiance.

Indications – Photoaging, wrinkles, fine lines, loss of skin’s firmness, melasma (dark spots), freckles, dull complexion, skin roughness, smokers.

Information - When AA2G comes into contact with skin, the a-glucosidase enzyme of the epidermis bonds the Vitamin C with glucose and induces a gradual release of vitamin C.

It suppresses melanin formation and decreases the amount of pre-existing melanin formation in fibroblasts.  It reduces free radicals, redness and swelling caused to the skin by sunlight.  It reduces expression lines and wrinkles.

Brightening

Active ingredients - AA2G, A-Arbutin, Oligopeptide-34-51-58

Action – Radiance, brightening evens skin tone.

Indications – Non-uniform skin tone, hyperpigmentation, age spots, photoaging, dull complexion.

Information - This serum brightens the skin by making the skin colour uniformed. With 3 peptides working together to reduce the formation of melanin, decolourising of freckles and spots and protects the skin from the sun, together with AA2G to hydrate and assist in the suppression of melanin formation.

AA2G This is a unique, stabilized form of vitamin C developed by binding glucose to ascorbic acid that helps support the skin's ability to fight free radicals, leading to younger looking, brighter even skin tone. A-Arbutin Decomposes and eliminates melanin resulting in a reduction of melanin. Oligopeptide-34 Decreases melanin production. Helps reduce hyperpigmentation. Finally, this peptide increases the expression of collagen and fibronectin and therefore has an anti-wrinkle effect. Oligopeptide-51 Controls the formation of melanin. Oligopeptide-58 protects skin from the sun, reduces spots and uniformly ‘brightens’ the skin.

Argireline 10%-Leuphasyl 10% - ‘Botox Effect Serum’

Active ingredients - Pentapeptide-18 & Acetyl Hexapeptide-8

Action – Reduction of expression lines.

Indications – Fine lines and expression wrinkles (forehead, eye contour area, lip contour area.

Information - If you’re thinking about Botox, try this first. This cocktail reduces expression wrinkles, inhibiting the contraction tension of muscles. It will not ‘immobilise-relax’ the muscles, similar to Botox but milder.

Argireline Botox injections are made are made of similar peptide compounds and because of that working a similar manner, but much milder. Effective both in reducing existing facial wrinkles and in preventing expression wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contraction. The perfect Botox alternative for those who do not wish to lose their full range of facial expression. A definite ingredient if you wish to improve the appearance of expression lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and to reduce “bar code” lines on the lips. Leuphasyl A Botox like peptide which eases muscle contraction. Works well with Argireline & Matrixyl 3000. Pentapeptide 18 Peptide that works similar to Botox. It relaxes, rather than paralyses, muscles enabling full facial expression, but reduces and prevents emotional wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contraction. Acetyl Hexapeptide 8 Anti-aging peptide. Prevents muscle contractions, thereby softening wrinkles. Eliminates fine wrinkles.
