WHAT CAUSES DULL SKIN?
Several factors can contribute to dull skin, but the most common cause by far is a lack of sleep (less than 7 hours each night). This is almost a normal occurrence for individuals leading busy lives in the city, with work, social and other commitments leaving very little time for rest and recuperation at the end of the day. Skin will appear tired and may show signs of wrinkles, dark eye circles, eye bags and other skin conditions. The overall tone of the skin will be dull and the person may appear older than they actually are.
Another possible cause is an unbalanced diet, resulting in skin lacking important vitamins and minerals needed for it to repair itself and to remain healthy. Skin may also become dehydrated, leading to a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface. Proper cleansing is very important as any dirt that remains on the surface will block the pores, making it difficult for them to breathe.
HOW MESOTHERAPY WORKS
Mesotherapy is suitable to address dull skin as it can treat a variety of skin conditions, all of which contribute to the weary look of the skin. Your doctor will administer a customised solution of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and more to the upper and middle layers of the skin. Microinjections deliver the solution into a specified treatment area, triggering the healing process. In addition, this creates microchannels in the skin, resulting in the skin producing fresh collagen and elastin which is required for the healing process.
A safe and progressive alternative to surgery, mesotherapy has increased in popularity due to its versatility, and is able to be customised to suit each individual’s skin needs.
Very little or no downtime is associated with the treatment, but you may experience some mild redness of the skin. This is minor and should subside within 24 hours. Depending on the condition of the dull skin, results may be noticeable within 2 days but this may vary from person to person.
Your doctor will recommend a suitable number of sessions for you during the initial consultation. Regular follow-up treatments are the norm in order to maintain your youthful appearance, but results do last for a considerable amount of time.
