Mesotherapy News

All medical procedures carry risks, however in the hands of qualified, highly trained health care professionals, many agree that mesotherapy is a very low risk procedure.

Performed in a sterile atmosphere in a medical setting, mesotherapy can also offer limited health risks because it is performed on a fully conscious patient and does not require anesthesia. In addition there is no post-operative recovery time or the need for heavy compression bandages and girdles (as post treatment infection risk is very minimal.)

Risk from the medications

Mesotherapy can be effective using incredibly minute and diluted amounts of medications, substantially limiting medication induced side effects.

There is a possibility of allergic reaction to the mesotherapy solution. However, because of the greatly diluted amount of the injected ingredients, these reactions should be minimal. Any possibility of an allergic reaction should be discussed with your physician.

Risks from the needles

Because a needle is used, there is a small risk of infection at the site of the injections. Other side- effects brought on by the injection may include: Mild or minor bruising, redness or swelling at the injection site. Typically this resolves within a few days. Risk from injections is something you should discuss with your physician.

Other side effects

Some patients report an itching sensation shortly after the treatment that usually dissipates quickly.

Some physicians may recommend oral supplements, skin creams or other topical lotions to assist in speeding the healing process.

Mesotherapy has been used in clinical practice since its introduction in 1952 by Dr. M. Pistor. Currently 15,000 physicians in France utilize the technique and there has been no evidence at present of any long-term consequences of mesotherapy.
