When it comes to enhancing your skin, understanding the differences between these two needle-based aesthetic treatments is very important.
Let's explore these differences together:
📍 Needle Length: Microneedling or Mesotherapy - Which Delivers the Right Depth For Your Needs?
📍 Number of Needles: Singular vs. Multiple - Precision vs. Wider Coverage
📍 Depth of Skin Penetration: Superficial Glow vs. Dermis Dive
📍 Treatment Delivery Speed: Swift Mesogun vs. Detailed Microneedling Pen
📍 Areas of Application: Tailoring the Treatment to Client Needs
One of the main differences between Microneedling and Mesotherapy is the depths of the skin they penetrate. Mesotherapy targets the middle layer, called the dermis while Microneedling treatments will target the first layer, the epidermis. However, it is worth mentioning that with the modern advancements in Microneedling, it can now target the dermis. The rule of thumb in any needling treatment is that if blood is drawn, it’s targeting deeper than the first layer of the skin.
Is less more for your clients?
Because of the difference in depth, Mesotherapy is more suited to fixing the skin’s long-term general health, i.e., fine lines, cellulite, sagging skin and uneven skin tone. Microneedling, as it targets the most superficial layer of skin but promotes collagen, is better suited to treating acne scarring, deeper signs of ageing and other texture-related skin concerns.
Mesotherapy consists of a single injection, whilst Microneedling treatments consist of multiple fine needles. The single needle allows more precise therapy in sensitive areas like the eyes to target dark circles. Microneedling with multiple needles will allow the Aesthetician to target more surface area quickly, especially when using a Microneedling pen.
Device choice plays a role too: If the Aesthetician uses an automatic microneedling pen, the treatment will be faster than a single meso injection and vice versa, where a mesogun would be swifter than a Derma roller.
But which path is right for your clients? Learn how to tailor your approach and choose the perfect training course for your aesthetic journey.
🌟 The Power of Microneedling:
Microneedling is a highly effective treatment suitable for various skin issues, particularly surrounding the face and neck:
- lighten and reduce scarring – acne and surgical
- hair loss
- wrinkles and fine lines
- texture related issues
The primary purpose of Microneedling is skin rejuvenation, as it promotes cell regeneration on a deeper level, encouraging the production of new skin cells. Acne scars on the face, wrinkles around the eyes and neck, and surgical scars on the abdomen respond well to Microneedling treatment.
Microneedling is great for targeting signs of ageing because the needles trigger the skin’s wound response. In turn, it triggers the release of healing properties, including producing new collagen and elastin.
Aestheticians may even encourage clients considering injectables like Botox or dermal fillers to consider microneedling beforehand.
For Aesthetic practitioners, microneedling is a versatile solution to various client concerns on the face and neck, especially now that it is commonly combined with other innovative technologies like Radiofrequency and chemical peels for maximised results.
🌟 Mesotherapy's Versatility:
Mesotherapy is an adaptable solution for various skin concerns, including:
- fine lines
- dehydrated and dull skin
- loose skin
- localised fat
Its effectiveness stems from its ability to target issues within the skin’s middle layers, making it a powerful solution against cellulite, saggy skin, and other problems.
It is also an excellent option for individuals with body insecurities, as it can enhance the appearance of these areas.Through Mesotherapy, clients can spot reduce fat which is otherwise impossible without surgical treatment.
The treatment’s cocktail injections contain essential ingredients that promote long-term skin health and effectively combat pigmentation issues, such as dark under eyes or skin discolouration, by eliminating toxins from the skin cells. Mesotherapy is also a great choice, as serums can be custom-made depending on the client’s desired results.
