Professional Skincare at Home with Celebrity Favourite INSPA

Mesotherapy specialist, Institute BCN has created a mesocosmetic daily skincare range called INSPA.

Institute BCN, are established experts in developing mesotherapeutic treatments for dermatologist and cosmetologists. Based on this experience they have created INSPA utilising the same active ingredients used in the professional line, INMED. The topical range will enable patients to not only maintain and improve on the results obtained from the professional treatment but can give some of the same fantastic effects when used by themselves at home.

The INSPA range consists of four specially formulated products to target skin ageing, lack of nutrients,pigmentation and cellulite:

MesoAge - Hyaluronic Treatment Day Cream 40ml £73.00
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural moisture-retaining filler that depletes with age and results in the skin losing elasticity, becoming dehydrated and prone to deep wrinkles. MesoAge non-oily gel replenishes Hyaluronic Acid to help re-hydrate and re-plump the skin for a healthy, youthful glow; protecting the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin), preventing water loss, filling the lines and smoothing the appearance of wrinkles.

MesoVita - Vitamin Treatment Night Cream 40ml £82.00
MesoVita targets the skin cells with vital bio-nutrition to revitalize the tone and texture of damaged skin, stimulate cell renewal and nourish deep down for a healthy glow. Antioxidant action also helps to protect the skin against ageing free-radicals. This nourishing cream is rich in essential acids including polyunsaturated fatty acids and omega-3 & 6, the nano-encapsulated vitamins used in mesotherapy (A, E, C, F, B-complex and K), and the minerals manganese, iron, zinc, magnesium and calcium.

MesoBlanche – Melano Treatment 40ml £68.00
MesoBlanche is a depigmentation cream that interferes in melanin synthesis to diminish: hyperpigmentation, target age spots, uneven pigmentation, blemishes and sun damage to leave skin healthy and flawless.
MesoBlanche increases cell production by activating cellular respiration and oxygenation, gently eliminating dead skin-cells, and contains plant extracts to soothe the skin. It also contains SPF 30 to protect against damaging UV rays.

MesoCell – Adipo Treatment 140ml £65.00
MesoCell cream helps to combat cellulite by accelerating the body’s natural fat reduction mechanisms; acting on tissues and microcirculation to help break down fat cells, interrupt the fat production mechanism and encouraging natural fat burning. MesoCell also boosts blood circulation, combats water retention and gently tones and tightens for smoother, stronger skin.

Mesotherapy Celebrity Fans include Cindy Crawford, Angelina Joile, and Brad Pitt

LP Skin Therapy


With our lives becoming ever more stressful, the demands we make of ourselves are becoming apparent visually – on our skin. We accept that stress can cause skin conditions such as eczema – but research has shown that stress is also one of the biggest contributing factors to ageing skin.

Dr. Linda Papadopoulos is a PhD and world-renowned expert in Psychodermatology, the study of how the mind affects the skin. Now, using her knowledge and working with some of the best cosmetic scientists in their field, Dr. Linda has created LP Skin Therapy – a unique ‘skin shrink’ collection that not only works on giving skin the nutrients it needs to be healthy, but also encourages the ‘feel good’ chemicals in the body to de-stress the mind – and therefore the skin.

LP Skin Therapy tackles both the external factors that lead to skin deterioration – sun damage, free radicals – but also, crucially, tackles the equally important internal factors – stress and anxiety. When tense, the body produces cortisol which can increase the body’s metabolism – resulting in stress break outs and premature ageing.

Dr. Linda says, ‘stress can affect the health, condition and ageing process of our skin. Using scientific advances in skincare, we’ve been able to create a collection designed to help skin look rested, youthful, healthy and vibrant by working inside AND out – no-matter what life throws at you!’

LP Skin Therapy is based on a simple philosophy – a healthy mind means healthy skin. LP Skin Therapy is a perfect capsule skincare collection. Each item is a unique blend of ingredients, combining high performance actives and peptides to combat the signs of ageing with pioneering ingredients such as Nootropic cognitive enhancers. Nootropics are naturally derived, smart nutrients whose impact on the ability to counter the effects of stress can have a positive effect both physiologically and psychologically. Each delicious product is lightly fragranced with scents from Dr. Linda’s homeland of Cyprus, such as orange blossom, pomegranate and Cyprus lemons. It is suitable for all skin types.

LP Skin Therapy products are priced from £15 to £47 available at Harrods (from summer 2011) and QVC (www.qvcuk.com)
