Mesotherapy is a treatment procedure widely used in rheumatology and sports medicine, with a simple rule about the active substances: less and better. The molecules are injected in small quantities directly into the target organ. Aesthetic medicine is using this method with increasing success for the dermis, allowing it to treat acne or its complications without side effects and in an effective way.
Causes : what is acne?
Acne is a dermatological condition, whose starting point is a sebaceous hypersecretion, typical during teen years , because stimulated by hormonal surges.
This excessive secretion of sebum ends up clogging the hair canal with the appearance of a whitehead or closed comedo.
This white comedo will then oxidize and accumulate dirt, resulting in the blackhead or open comedo.
This excess of sebum promotes the development in the follicles of parasites (Demodex) or anaerobic germs (former Propionibacterium), which can lead to inflammation: this is folliculitis.
The pimples or papules can then become infected and turn into pustules, with pus.
Depending on the extent of the inflammatory reaction, the healing of the acne will be more or less significant and more or less lasting:

- swollen or hypertrophic acne scar;
- Atrophic acne scar crateriform acne that can form permanent stigmas on the facial skin.
How can acne be treated with mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a technique to treat better with less, by injecting the active ingredient in situ: with little, because the product is entirely used,
without loss in the blood circulation;
better, because it is immediately put in the spot where it has to act.
Mesotherapy therefore aims to a more complete, better tolerated and faster effect.
Mesolift (a form of facial mesotherapy) will thus carry the products directly into the dermal tissue.
Acne mesotherapy can act on two major issues.
Regulating sebaceous production with mesotherapy
This is the starting point of any acne disease, as the hyperactivity of the sebum-producing glands is promoted by many factors. The most important is hormonal stimulation.
Mesoline® ACNE thus integrates various molecules able to act on the sebaceous glands:
- Vitamin A regulates sebum synthesis and reduces inflammatory reactions.
- The natural extracts of Gingko biloba decrease the sebaceous secretion of the skin.
- Group B vitamins reduce risks of nflammatory hyper-pigmentation or HPI.
- The vitamin PP brings a brighning effect.
- The hyaluronic acid of low molecular weight nourishes the dermis and brings hydration to the skin.
LED light therapy helps fight against bacterial growth or inflammatory flare-ups (yellow, red and blue lights).
Removing acne scars with mesotherapy
In case of old acne, the practitioner seeks to fade unsightly scars, boosting dermal regeneration and smoothing out superficial lesions.
Depending on the case, the doctor will select brightening molecules (Pluryal Mesoline SHINE®), plant growth inducers (NCTF 135®), or clarifying active ingredients (Mesoline® Plurial CLEAR).
When the scars are deep or fibrous, the doctor often recommends solutions that allow a deeper action, such as medical laser, medium peeling or energy-bearing medical waves.
Indications : when should acne be treated with mesotherapy?
Treating acne with mesotherapy is not recommended for major inflammatory flare-ups with pustules: the injection can indeed promote the dispersion of germs in depth.
In other cases, acne mesotherapy can be used to treat :
- In acute phase, oily skin, blackheads, blackheads, blackheads, dull complexion;
- In chronic phase, moderate acne scars, which alter the beauty of the skin.
Mesotherapy can be performed on any teenager, 80 to 90% of them being affected. It sometimes allows to avoid heavier treatments.
Acne mesotherapy can also be performed on adults, since a quarter of men and half of women in the 30/45 age group are affected.
Due to the relative increase in androgens, acne pimples can also frequently appear at menopause.
