When it comes to fat-melting injections, you may have heard of Lipostabil, Lipodissolve, Mesolift, MesoSculpting, or MesoGlow. These treatments are all versions of mesotherapy, and they claim to address everything from stubborn fat deposits and cellulite to age-related concerns like wrinkles. But they all have two things in common: they’re not FDA-approved, and there’s no standard for treatment.
The differences among these procedures are most often found in the “meso-mix”: the concoction of drugs, enzymes, vitamins and other matter that gets injected. While some purport that their mix does have standards, the bottom line is that no mix has been FDA-approved to determine efficacy and long-term safety. Another difference is how deep the cocktail is injected into the skin.
Although it has been used in France for more than 50 years, mesotherapy continues to be shrouded in controversy, and the medical community has yet to see a valid study regarding its effectiveness and safety. Studies are underway, though, so expect to hear more from us on breaking mesotherapy news.
