The thoughts of Micro-needling and mesotherapy from SJS Sheffield Aesthetics

Micro-needling and mesotherapy are two distinct cosmetic treatments used to improve the appearance of the skin, reduce signs of aging, and address various skin concerns. They involve different techniques and goals, but both are performed by licensed professional like me.


Description: Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy or derma-rolling, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a device with fine needles to create tiny, controlled punctures (micro-injuries) in the skin’s surface.

Purpose: The micro-injuries stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for skin elasticity and smoothness. This can improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and overall skin texture.

Procedure: A dermatologist or trained professional will use a micro-needling device to make controlled punctures on the skin’s surface, and often, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort.

Recovery: There is typically some redness and mild swelling after the procedure, but these side effects usually subside within a few days. The skin may continue to improve over several weeks as collagen production increases.


Description: Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a customized cocktail of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other beneficial substances into the mesoderm, the middle layer of the skin.

Purpose: The goal of mesotherapy is to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin, reduce localized fat deposits (sometimes referred to as “meso-liposculpture”), and treat conditions like cellulite and hair loss.

Procedure: A licensed practitioner will use a very fine needle to inject the customized solution into the targeted area, typically the face, neck, or other areas with cosmetic concerns.

Recovery: There may be some redness, swelling, or mild bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects usually subside within a few days. The number of sessions required can vary depending on the specific concern being addressed.

It’s important to note that both micro-needling and mesotherapy should be performed by trained and qualified professionals in a clinical setting like me at SJS Sheffield Aesthetics. The choice between these treatments depends on your specific skin concerns and goals, so it’s essential to book a consultation with me so I can assess your needs and recommend the most suitable option for you. Additionally, post-treatment care and aftercare instructions should be followed to optimise results and minimise potential side effects.
