Mesotherapy for Pain Management
Created in France in the 1950, mesotherapy is a technique in which medications are injected just underneath the skin in small amounts for the relief of pain. It can be used for muscle strains, tendonitis and other localized pain syndromes.
The substances used include vitamin B-12, a numbing agent and a medication to decrease inflammation. These substances decrease pain and help the underlying tissues to heal. The pain relief is usually immediate. Most patients require between one and three treatments.
