Mesotherapy treatment is a non surgical cosmetic solution aimed at diminishing problem areas in your body such as cellulite, excess weight, body contouring, and face/neck rejuvenation, just to name a few. The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections of various medications, vitamins, hormones, enzymes and herbal extracts into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. The theory is that when these small amounts of medication are injected into the mesoderm, underlying fat is melted. It is administered via numerous injections containing various types of FDA approved medicines, vitamins, and minerals.

Mesotherapy has been around in other countries for many years, but has more recently become very popular in the United States. Mesotherapy involves injecting medication, vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, and enzymes in the subcutaneous tissue to treat medical conditions and for cosmetic procedures. Mesotherapy has been mainly advertised as a procedure for anti-aging and body sculpting. Mesotherapy can also be used for facial and skin rejuvenation as well as for other cosmetic procedures. Your compounding pharmacist can prepare specific formulations unique to you and your needs.
