Mesotherapy is a medical technique whereby active substances are introduced into the skin surface by numerous micro-injections to correct aesthetic disorders such as skin ageing, cellulite, flaccidity and alopecia, among others. The physical reaction is caused by the mechanical stimulus (the effect of the needle), while there is also a pharmacological effect due to the micro doses of the substances introduced.
