What you should know about Mesotherapy


While some treatments are good or even excellent, they may not be approved universally. Mesotherapy is one of them. It looks like it is quite effective but the FDA has disapproved this kind of treatment…

Mesotherapy, also known as lipodissolve, is an injectable treatment designed to treat body fat. The treatment is meant to serve as an alternative to invasive treatments like liposuction surgery.

Mesotherapy is not FDA approved.
