The procedure of mesotherapy in aesthetic medicine appeared quite a long time ago. Recently, cosmetologists have increasingly come down to the fact that seasonal bans on this procedure and the use of mesotherapy products are relative. Arguing this with a social factor, foreign experience, and individual characteristics of the patient.
However, it is the winter period that is the best time to perform not only mesotherapy, but also other injection techniques, as the healing process occurs faster, and injured tissues are not exposed to ultraviolet rays.
In winter, the skin is affected by the harsh external environment. Strong gusts of wind and frost cause our skin to lose elasticity and receive microtraumas, and dry indoor air and temperature drops dehydrate it.
Mesotherapy for the face is based on the subcutaneous injection of nutrients capable of stimulating blood circulation, smoothing out wrinkles, and improving the structure and color of the skin.
Mesotherapy for the body – beauty injections, the effect of which is aimed at eliminating stretch marks, accumulations of subcutaneous fat, and cellulite, as well as increasing the elasticity and smoothness of the skin.
Mesotherapy for hair is a procedure that helps stop the process of hair loss and accelerate their growth, cure seborrhea and dandruff, and get rid of dryness and brittleness of hair.
All manipulations are performed with certified drugs of the new generation, such as DesoBody and DesoFace (LoveCosmedical, Italy), etc. The cold season is most preferable for these procedures, as the traces of injections (bruises, swelling, and papules) can be easily hidden under outerwear and headgear, as well as disguised with a thick layer of decorative cosmetics.
Indications for use
“Beauty injections” in the winter time help to fill vitamin deficiency, remove wrinkles, improve the general condition of the skin, moisturize and prepare the skin for the summer period, eliminate peeling and other traces of the winter season. Therefore, mesotherapy in winter can be used in the following cases:

Features of the composition of the drugs
In order to prevent seasonal manifestations of skin defects, it is necessary to direct complex skincare to the formation of hydro reserves, thanks to which it will be possible to fill and regulate the water balance.
Mesotherapy in winter perfectly acts as a protector against the negative effects of frost and wind. Therefore, it is important to choose the right active substances for the mesh cocktail, so that the drug not only eliminates existing problems but also copes with its winter “task”. For this, it is necessary to include in the composition of the drug:
- hyaluronic acid – it saturates cells with moisture and promotes its own production;
- extracts of medicinal plants – they improve the complexion, relieve dryness and peeling, and have a soothing and antioxidant effect;
- vitamins – saturate the skin with important trace elements, and resist stress and the influence of the external environment.
Despite the fact that mesotherapy sessions are recommended to be carried out in winter, there are several features that will help in the post-procedure period.
In winter, you need to use moisturizing creams with special care. If you apply such a cream on a frosty day, before going outside, you can face the negative effects of temperature changes.
For the same reason, in addition to the sessions, it is better to use a cream with hyaluronic acid.
In winter, on sunny days, the sun also actively affects the skin, and in order not to get microtrauma, it is better to use protective creams.
