Mesotherapy is a method of treatment introduced in France in 1952 by Dr. Michel Pistor, which quickly achieved popularity around the world. At the present time (2005), there are twenty national chapters of the INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF MESOTHERAPY.
Mesotherapy is taught in five universities in France and is recognized and covered as a treatment for pain by the French Social Security system. After examination of the patient and determination of the diagnosis using the methods of conventional medicine, the practitioner applies small painless local injections in the surface of the skin of areas needing treatment. The injections are of either conventional drugs or homeopathic drugs in highly diluted quantities, even 1:100 compared to usual treatments. It is significant to note that Mesotherapy does not include the use of steroids. Of course the equipment is used once and then disposed of. For example, to treat pain in a knee, the practitioner injects dilute dosages of drugs to the skin above the knee. This is in contrast to conventional treatment, where a much higher quantity of drugs would be taken orally, which would have to pass through the stomach, the liver and around the body, until it reaches the knee. The technique of Mesotherapy localizes the effect of the drugs very specifically to the pain in the knee, and because only very small quantities are used, there are no harmful side effects.
