M esotherapy (from Greek mesos – “middle”, and therapeia, "to treat medically") is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment. It employs multiple small dose injections of pharmaceutical medications, hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and other ingredients, into the dermis and hypodermis. It is in these skin layers the blood vessels, immune defense cells, and the cells that are responsible for the synthesis of collagen and elastin are located.
