Mesotherapy is one of the latest, non-invasive clinical procedures used for treating a number of cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions. The treatment aims at targeting the problem areas only with microinjections comprising of a mixture of conventional and homeopathic medications, enzymes, vitamins, amino acids and plant extracts. The chemical cocktail is injected directly into the middle layer of skin (mesoderm) of the patient to treat specifically the condition that requires a treatment. Common applications of mesotherapy include:

  • Mesotherapy for weight loss/ fat burning
  • Mesotherapy for cellulite treatment
  • Mesotherapy for facial wrinkles and fine lines
  • Mesotherapy for hair loss

As with any other cosmetic or non-cosmetic procedure, there are some risks and complications associated with mesotherapy as well. However, to date there has been no record of permanent or life-threatening side effects caused by the procedure. While these side effects are rare and minimal, it is important that every mesotherapy candidate considers them before undergoing the treatment.

  1. Skin Infection:

The main risk associated with mesotherapy is getting a serious skin infection at the injection site. However, it happens only when the procedure is performed in unhygienic conditions.

  1. Discomfort caused by needle pricks:

The chemical cocktail is injected into the skin using a specially designed mesotherapy(ميزوثيرابي) gun that is able to make multiple shots within a few seconds. If you have low pain threshold you may experience some discomfort caused by the needle pricks. However, this can be avoided by numbing the treatment area with topical anesthesia.

  1. Burning sensation:

You may also experience burning sensations at the treatment area post-procedure. This is a quite common side effect but it does not last for long. You can minimize burning sensations by icing the injection sites.

  1. Swelling and bruising:

Swelling and bruising are two other common side effects that almost every individual experiences after mesotherapy. But they go away at their own within a couple of hours. Even if it lasts for long, it should not last for more than a day. Icing the treatment areas will help reduce swelling and bruising.

These risks and side effects can be significantly avoided by opting for an experienced, board certified dermatologist with ample experience of treating people with mesotherapy.
