Transdermal Mesotherapy uses FDA approved Dermo-electroporation®, which utilizes the skin's water based channels to promote transdermal delivery of drugs by a pulsed iontophoresis with "electroporation" or a continuous reversed polarity current. Dermo-electroporation® also known as DEEP makes it possible for either micro molecules or macro molecules to be safely delivered into the body without either modification of the active solution nor damage to the targeted tissues and cells. Technology uses pulses which the patient's skin can easily tolerate with no problems or side effects.
Transdermal mesotherapy can be used for skin bio revitalization treatments, post laser application and pre and post skin resurfacing procedures.

Transdermal Mesotherapy for anti-ageing benefits: Ageing is a complex phenomenon which is genetically programmed according to a biological clock. But it can be occurred prematurely by external environmental factors such as UV rays, pollution, smoking which produce free radicals. Human skin is a living organ which performs dynamic activities such as growth, repair and maintenance. Even though our skin requires cytokines and growth factors as key modulators of skin cell metabolism, their levels decreases with the aging process which results in slow cell renewal and defective skin defense systems. If exogenous cytokines and growth factors are put into the aged skin by Transdermal Mesotherapy, they improve skin elasticity and plasticity via accelerated rejuvenating process.
Today's savvy patients and consumers are looking for treatments and services that work in concert with their anti-ageing programs to provide more discernible results. The good news is that the latest treatments such as anti-ageing Transdermal Mesotherapy with Growth Factors are more effective than ever and treatments should be started sooner when the skin has a much greater ability to rejuvenate.
Transdermal mesotherapy with Growth Factors stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen, which is the major support structure for the skin. If one can keep one's skin firm and taught with collagen, then the sagging that takes place over time can be contained as tighter skin supports the soft tissues of the face and body.
A series of treatments is necessary. The new concept today is to start with rejuvenation treatments early so as to and avoid the inevitable ageing. Rather than waiting until their problems are bothersome again, patients must appreciate that maintenance goes a long way and that single transdermal mesotherapy treatments should be repeated twice yearly after an initial course.
Our signature Treatment, 3D Skin Rejuvenation™ combines Transdermal Mesotherapy safely and effectively with laser and light treatments and Carboxytherapy.
The Transderm has FDA approval for safe transdermal delivery of drugs. At Skin Renewal, thousands of Transdermal Mesotherapy treatments have been administered to our patients with great results with no downtime or side effects.
There is no downtime or pain associated with Transdermal Mesotherapy. For facial rejuvenation, the results of the treatment are usually evident immediately post treatment as hyaluronic acid present in the rejuvenating solution attracts water into the skin/dermis for instant hydration. Epidermal changes are usually seen 10 days post treatment. The final results of each treatment are evident 2 to 3 months down the line when collagen production is completed. For best results 4 to 8 treatments are needed 2 weeks apart.
Transdermal Mesotherapy safely treats all skin types without pain or down-time.
