Mesotherapy

What is mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a treatment that involves injecting a cocktail of ingredients into the middle layer of the skin, the ‘mesoderm’. Mesotherapy has been popular in France for 50 years; the British have been slower to adopt it but tweakment clinics are increasingly adding it to their list of offerings.

What exactly is injected and how it is injected depends both on the aim of the treatment and on the practitioner performing the treatment. The cocktail that is injected usually contains a mixture of hydrating hyaluronic acid and vitamins, though this will vary from clinic to clinic. Some practitioners like to mix a little Botox into the treatment, too, which might sound mad until you learn that these superficial injections of diluted toxin can help to reduce skin oiliness in the areas where they are injected.
