For skin rejuvenation when it is better to use mesotherapy than using laser?

for skin rejuvenation when it is better to use mesotherapy than using laser

Mesotherapy is used much more in Europe and other parts of the world because no systems (that I know of) have been approved by the FDA in the U.S.   For those of you who haven’t heard of it, mesotheraphy is a veritable cocktail, with often more than 20 chemicals, vitamins, growth factors and often unidentified liquids, which is then injected with tiny needles into the skin. 

I really can’t recommend it because it is a largely unregulated industry and it’s difficult to know the purity and quality of the often more than 20 substances being injected.  Some of these solutions have been found to contain, for example, theophyline, which is a prescription drug in the U.S.

Lasers can have complications also, but in expert hands you will get a more consistent result if you go to a reputable center with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon on site to supervise.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
