European Med Spa Series #7

“Mesotherapy”

According to our survey of medical and lifestyle spas last month, Europeans appear to embrace “Mesotherapy” from Greek mesos, meaning middle and therapy or to treat medically.   These therapies usually employ non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatments.  Mesotherapy consists of a variety of multiple injections in the fat under the skin, using either pharmaceutical and/or a combinations of homeopathic medications, plant extracts and vitamins.

There are published studies reported in Europe and South America on the clinical treatments and effects of these medications and the various combinations. However, the actual clinical research is inconclusive as to the effectiveness of these procedures.   This fact does not seem to dissuade patients from seeking out mesotherapy and contributing to the popularity of it at the spas we visited in France and Switzerland.   As with many of the trendy anti-aging treatments available in America, the marketplace often embraces a product based on slick marketing, rather than hard clinical evidence.
