Mesotherapy, pioneered in the 1950s by French physician Dr. Michel Pistor, is the delivery of vitamins, minerals, medications, and amino acids placed topically and delivered through the skin by micro-injections. Mesotherapy has a variety of applications including weight loss, cellulite reduction, face, and neck rejuvenation, and hair regrowth. It involves the injection of vitamins, homeopathic agents, natural extracts, and pharmaceuticals into the skin. The injections are not painful because a topical anesthetic is administered 30 minutes prior to the treatment. Unlike other medical treatments, mesotherapy is administered directly to the desired area. This limits side-effects and reduces the possibility of drug interactions.
