Mesotherapy is also known as intradermal therapy. The dermis has a protective barrier shielding it from environmental exposure limiting maximum absorption of topical therapeutic agents. Mesotherapy injections through the dermis provide direct access to nutrients and vitamins. This non-invasive, painless procedure is usually recommended by the New York mesotherapy and cosmetics specialists at Liondale Medical for cosmetic treatments. However, mesotherapy has a broad spectrum of other therapeutic applications, including treating injuries, disorders, and other medical skin conditions.

The side effects of mesotherapy
Mesotherapy can sometimes cause:
Most patients report rashes after mesotherapy treatments. However, rashes usually disappear in a few days. Procaine use has also been linked to causing allergic reactions in most patients. Your care provider needs to determine the treatment in case of an allergic reaction.
The level of pain depends on certain factors like the sensitivity of the target area, the patient’s pain threshold, and the injection depth.
The dermis provides a protective barrier between the body and infections. Mesotherapy gets through the barrier. If not performed correctly, the procedure can cause an infection to develop in the target area.
Hematomas usually occur when blood collects under the skin caused by inadvertent nicking of vessels and capillaries during mesotherapy. However, the blood usually undergoes reabsorption after a few days, leaving no long term mark. Even though hematomas are not causes for concern, they can make the treated area look unpleasant.
