I’ve seen some dramatic pictures.  The only problem is that these pictures don’t tell you what else the patient was doing while receiving the injections.  Does anyone know exactly what gets injected?

Dear Internist,

Regarding Mesotherapy…

I emailed you the name and phone number of a doctor who has used it who you can call and find out more.

Also see the entry on Wikipedia.

They say it is “multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients.”

The entry questions its value.

No, I have not heard anything about it personally.

In 2005, Dr. Charles Leroy, whose contact information I sent you, was Editor of the American Journal of Mesotherapy.

Their website can be found here:

He’d be the guy to ask.
