Mesotherapy is a treatment in KBS that involves injecting chemicals into the skin’s middle layer (the mesoderm) using a series of very small needles. In 1952, French physician Michel Pistor pioneered the technique as a means of treating sports injuries and increasing blood flow.
Botanical extracts, vitamins, amino acids, minerals, hyaluronic acid, hormones, enzymes, and even pharmaceuticals. These are just some of the things that doctors inject during mesotherapy.
Depending on the ingredients used, these one-of-a-kind drinks can treat thinning hair, reduce the appearance of fine lines, tighten saggy skin, get rid of cellulite, and even eliminate that double chin.
What’s good and bad about KBS mesotherapy?
- It’s an in-office procedure that only helps a little.
- General anesthesia is not necessary for the patients.
- It takes less time to recover from more invasive procedures like liposuction.
- There’s no need to wear compression garments after surgery.
- The treatment in KBS doesn’t leave scars because there are no cuts.
The FDA has not approved the procedure, and the agency has sent out several warning letters about safety concerns (read more below).
- Since there is no universally accepted method or treatment, the success rate varies widely based on the practitioner’s personal recipe and approach.
- Reliable studies show that mesotherapy doesn’t work to shape the body or make the skin look younger.
- Some doctors may suggest as many as ten mesotherapy sessions, which can get costly.
- The swelling can last up to a week, and some people have had more serious problems, like scarring, that won’t go away.

KBS: How safe is mesotherapy?
In 2010, the FDA sent warning letters to six U.S. companies and one company in Brazil. The texts questioned the safety and effectiveness of Lipodissolve, a treatment for fat loss that is almost always used in place of mesotherapy.
The Food and Drug Administration reports that some patients experienced painful knots under their skin, inflammation, and scarring.
Other rare but serious risks and side effects include infection and local necrosis (tissue death.) This may be caused by injecting the drug into the skin instead of the fat.
