Who is it for?
Pain mesotherapy is suitable for men and women of all ages for the treatment of pain.
What is the treatment?
Mesotherapy is a technique where specific medicinal cocktails are introduced into the skin
using very fine needles. While it is widely recognized for its cosmetic applications, it has also
been effectively employed for pain management for years.
How does the treatment work?
The possible mechanism of action of mesotherapy involves the injected drug (liquid)
stimulating the dermis and triggering a series of local and systemic reactions that participate
in the control of pain. The dermis could contribute to the analgesic effect through a
mediated mesodermal modulation of the intradermal glial cell system.
Contrary to some beliefs, corticosteroids (commonly known as cortisone) typically used for
musculoskeletal disorders are not utilized in mesotherapy. Instead, based on the specific
condition being treated, specialized blends of vitamins, anti-inflammatories, muscle
relaxants, local anaesthetics, and anti-spasmodics are prepared. These are then
administered using tiny needles, generally ranging from 4 to 13 mm in length.
Benefits of the treatment
This method is particularly beneficial for older individuals, those on multiple medications, or
those with conditions like high blood pressure and gastrointestinal issues. One of the
primary advantages of mesotherapy is that effective treatment is achieved with much
smaller doses than would be needed with oral or intramuscular medications. This ensures
the targeted area receives an optimal concentration of the drug.
Duration of treatment
A typical treatment takes 10-45 minutes.
How many sessions are required?
The treatment frequency, in terms of sessions and their intervals, depends on the severity
and type of ailment.
Being a localized treatment using minimal medication dosages, mesotherapy is not typically
associated with any downtime or side effects like elevated blood pressure, stomach
discomfort, nausea, or deterioration of blood markers that may be seen with oral
medication. Patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately afterwards.
