Mesotherapy for disorders of wound healing
Mesotherapy is a topical, minimally invasive and intradermal procedure. This can be used to treat disorders of wound healing and milder forms of circulatory disorders that occur locally.
Those who are looking for alternative methods for healing wounds should therefore take a closer look at the possibilities and effects of mesotherapy.
The extensive product range of The Mimosa Company also offers many interesting possibilities to support wound healing in an alternative way.
The difference between wound healing and blood circulation
The terms circulatory and wound healing disorders are often used synonymously, but their causes must be clearly distinguished from one another. Wound healing is the body’s ability to restore damaged tissue and close wounds.
Wounds can be caused by thermal, chemical and mechanical noxae, whereas blood supply to the skin, organs and musculoskeletal system is a continuous process that can suffer from both chronic and acute disorders.
Wound healing and blood circulation disorders
Wound healing disorder is a wound that heals poorly, with a delay or even not at all. The causes may be malnutrition, continuous nicotine consumption, underlying diseases such as diabetes, serious infections, diseases of the vascular system or disorders of the immune system.
However, local causes such as fistula formation, seromas, large hematomas, widely spaced wound edges, lack of relief of pressure points, lack of immobilization, a disturbed wound environment or a wound infection can also be responsible for disturbed wound healing.
On the other hand, circulatory disorders occur when the vessels through which the blood flows are pathologically dilated, blocked or constricted.
If acute circulatory disorders occur, for example due to thrombosis, arteriosclerosis or embolisms, they can be life-threatening and must therefore be treated immediately.
How mesotherapy works
Mesotherapy represents an interesting and effective alternative for treating wound healing disorders and locally occurring, mild forms of disturbed blood circulation.
In the course of mesotherapy, both naturopathic and allopathic medicines and active ingredients are injected into the area of the affected skin with the help of thin, very fine cannulas using various techniques.
This treatment has the advantage that very small amounts of active substances are sufficient to achieve lasting and effective results of the treatment.
As a rule, the active substances administered do not enter the large or enterohepatic bloodstream, which is why patients need not fear systemic side effects from mesotherapy.
Depending on the indication and severity, the desired results can be achieved after only a few sessions. Thus, mesotherapy shows itself to be an extremely gentle procedure that can be used in a variety of application areas.
It is suitable for various illnesses and complaints, such as headaches, sports injuries and arthrosis, as well as in the field of aesthetic medicine, for example, to treat hair loss and wrinkles or to achieve revitalization of the skin.
Mesotherapy can also be used preventively in the form of microvaccination for pollen allergies or respiratory tract infections.
If mesotherapy is applied in the field of blood circulation and wound healing disorders, this treatment can be assigned to the aesthetic as well as to the curative field.
The principle of action is nevertheless always the same: the microcirculation, the quality of the extracellular matrix, the supply of damaged cell structures with oxygen and micronutrients and the tissue perfusion are significantly improved.
