Mesotherapy is derived from the Greek words mesos, meaning ‘middle’, and therapeia, ‘to treat medically’. It is a procedure of administering multiple painless injections of minidoses of vitamins, minerals, conventional or homeopathic medications, standardized natural plant extracts, and amino acids into the skin and mesoderm. It is an esthetic medical speciality that was given formal recognition by the French National Academy of Medicine in 1987. Presently, thousands of physicians practice mesotherapy throughout the world, especially in Europe and South America.
