The anti-ageing benefits of meso-gliding
Tired of your acne scars? Wanting to tackle your fine lines? The meso-gliding treatment might be for you. Haven’t heard of it before? Rita Porreca, dermal therapist and owner of Cosmedic Professionals, explains how it works. “Meso-gliding uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function, infusing product into the dermal layer. Meso-gliding is suited for all skin types – it can treat acne, pigmentation and open pores and can also rebuild collagen. It can also benefit acne scarring and stretch marks.”
Read on to find out what happened when Rita gave beautyheaven’s Kym a meso-gliding treatment when she visited Cosmedic Professionals...
What treatment did you get and where?
“I received the meso-gliding full face and neck treatment at Cosmedic Professionals in Five Dock, NSW Sydney.”
From start to finish, what did the treatment involve?
“Initially, Rita, my physician, described the treatment and identified my major skin concerns. This would allow her to tailor the serums for the best outcome for my problem areas. I mentioned to her that I wasn't happy with my pigmentation and fine lines. She explained she would use a combination cocktail serum with the meso-gliding tool to target these concerns.
Rita gently cleansed and assessed my whole face and neck area, then selected and mixed the correct serum for my treatment. She then used the meso pen-like tool, which is a micro-needling pen that contains 12 microscopic needles that can be varied in depth according to patient's requirements. The pen glided over my whole face and neck, which does feel a little uncomfortable. I'm not sure whether it was the sound of the pen, or just the thought of the micro needles penetrating my skin that felt strange. After the treatment was finished, Rita applied a soothing cloth mask which for approximately twenty minutes. This felt cool and soothing after the needling. When the mask was removed, Rita assessed my skin, applied sunscreen to it, and asked how my skin felt.
