It would be extremely beneficial in order to achieve the best possible result of repeated mesotherapy after a period of 2 or 4 months. Whether the Mesotherapy is done 3 times or 6 depends mainly on the quality of the skin, the degree of wear and the rate of ageing of each person.

Instead of using cocktails of vitamins and hyaluronic acid, we use ingredients that exist in the blood plasma and specifically the growth factors that contribute to the production of collagen and elastin. They also nourish the skin because they are contained in these precious minerals and proteins. Autologous Mesotherapy is increasingly preferred in recent years due to its spectacular results.
