Mesotherapy is a non surgical cosmetic technique that uses numerous injections containing various types of medicines, vitamins, and minerals, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat. Some of these substances are FDA/EMA approved and some are not. While in the beginning of the time little was known or researched about the ingredients, today much is known about them and their impact on human skin.

Michel Pistor, a doctor in France, developed the technique in 1952. It was originally used to relieve pain. In the years since, it It is most popular in Southern Europe today but has gained popularity in the United States and other parts of the world too.

Today, mesotherapy is used to:

  • fade signs of aging such as wrinkles and lines
  • remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face
  • reduce cellulite
  • treat/reduce scars and strechmarks
  • treat discoloration challenges and issues such as hyper pigmentation.
  • tighten loose skin
  • recontour the body

The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of skin. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.

List of possible ingredients:


This brightening agent compromised of 3 amino acids (Cysteine, Glycine & Glutamic Acid) is naturally produced in the body although levels of it decrease as we age. Aside from helping with skin tone, Glutathione is an antioxidant that protects against the effects of environmental damage from the sun and other elements.

Hyaluronic acid

As we age our body’s ability to retain moisture decreases. Luckily, Hyaluronic Acid has the capacity to hold 1000 times more water than its own weight and will definitely help with restoring both the way skin looks and the way it works.

Glycolic acid

Glycolic Acid is usually used in concentrations of around 1% in facial mesotherapy formulas in order to exfoliate dead skin cells as well as help increase collagen production.

Vitamin B3

Also known as Niacinamide, Vitamin B3 is a cell-communicating ingredient; it helps cells work together well and function at their best. Among the numerous anti-aging benefits this ingredient offers is that it helps strengthen the skin’s structure as well as boosts its immunity to environmental damage.

Vitamin C

A antioxidant, Vitamin C helps to fight free radicals, boost collagen synthesis, regulate melanin production (which helps those brown spots and acne marks) and also increases overall skin rejuvenation. L-Ascorbic Acid is one of the more common forms of Vitamin C used in mesotherapy formulas and is considered to be the most effective in terms of anti-aging results.

Vitamin E

As an antioxidant with powerful anti-aging benefits, Vitamin E’s emollient nature nourishes the skin and also helps to prevent water loss. Facial mesotherapy formulas that use a combination of naturally derived alpha-tocopherol, mixed tocopherol and tocotrienols are among the most effective.

Vitamin A

Retinoic Acid is the most powerful derivative of Vitamin A and is well known within the realm of anti-aging. Not only is it one of the most effective ingredients helping to repair skin damage, retinoic acid also helps with overall skin rejuvenation. As it’s such a potent ingredient, it’s usually found in extremely low percentages of about 0.01% in facial mesotherapy formulas.

Treatment and aftercare:

A mild topical anesthetic is usually applied to the areas being treated depending on the patients tolerance to pain. Using a micro-needle, the skincare practitioner will inject the areas being targeted multiple times.  As the needles only reach 4-6mm beneath the skin’s surface, discomfort is usually minimal and is often described as feeling like mosquito bites.

Depending on the severity of aging concerns, 3-5 sessions spaced 10-14 days apart are usually needed. In order to extend the lifespan of results a session every 1-3 months is generally recommended after the initial set of facial mesotherapy treatments. With regular maintenance expect results to last 1-2 years or longer.

Mesotherapy for melasma / pigmentation

Mesotherapy treatment for Melasma and other skin pigmentation disorders is delivered by micro-injection directly into the affected areas of the skin. This is the most effective way of targeting the problem, and shows the quickest results. It is most effective when used in conjunction with a peel, but both treatments can be used separately.

One of the solutions is a mixture of Glutathione and Vitamin C, which reduces damage to the epidermal cells and promotes the production of collagen, making the skin appear brighter.


  • Retynal Palmitate: Retinyl palmitate converts into retinol (or vitamin A), which in turn is converted into retinoic acid by specialized enzymes in the skin. Retinoic acid facilitates communication between cells, encouraging aging cells to continue their renewal process, and regenerate collagen and elastin to prevent the appearance of aging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines.
  • Glutathione: Inhibits melanin synthesis in reaction af tyrosinase by neutralizing free radicals and maintains exogenous antioxidants such as vitamins C and E in their reduced (active) forms which improves cell renewal. Is also known for its ability to lighten skin

Mesotherapy for stretch marks, scars and acne scars

Stretch marks are scars underneath the skin that are most frequently caused by pregnancy or through gaining or losing weight. They occur in both women and men of all races and skin types. Stretch marks can have an unsightly cosmetic effect and cause many sufferers to become self-conscious. Scars can be created as a result of a medical procedure or by accidents to name a few.

The main ingredients are Pennywort, which heals and repairs the skin, Dexpanthenol and Elastin which help the skin to rejuvenate, and Organic Silicon, which the skin needs to form and strengthen its collagen fibres.

Examples of ingredients:

  • Ascorbic Acid: Antioxidants stimulates the production of collagen Out of the many beneficial forms of vitamin C, ascorbic acid is a superstar for its proven antioxidant properties that boost firmer-feeling skin.
  • Proteoglycans: molecules made up that shape the structure of the cells, and are joined to the cell membrane and the extracellular matrix.
