Mesotherapy is a technique that uses injections of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat.
Michel Pistor, a doctor in France, developed the technique in 1952. It was originally used to relieve pain. In the years since, it has gained popularity in the United States and other parts of the world.
Today, mesotherapy is used to:
remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
fade wrinkles and lines
tighten loose skin
recontour the body
lighten pigmented skin
treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss
