What is mesotherapy?

The word "mesotherapy" derives from mesoderm, a term that identifies the middle deep layer of the dermis where, appropriate active ingredients, are injected or veiculate transdermally (with equipment such as radiofrequency, electroporation, iontophoresis, aesthetic oxygen therapy, cavitation).

Hence the distinction between classical mesotherapy and virtual mesotherapy:

  • Classic mesotherapy: intradermal micro injections of pharmaceutical, phytotherapeutic, and / or homeopathic active ingredients (see products for homeopathic mesotherapy);
  • Virtual mesotherapy also called "needle free mesotherapy" or transdermal delivery: appropriate devices such as radiofrequency, electroporation, iontophoresis, aesthetic oxygen therapy, cavitation promotes the penetration of the active ingredients at the cutaneous level thus avoiding pain.
