Mesotherapy is a medical procedure which involves injecting drugs into the papillary dermis, and acts both pharmacologically and by reflex reaction, owing to the stimulus of the needle. Proper injection technique and choice of product are essential to the end result of the treatment.
The duration of effects differs for each individual, and depends on factors such as skin structure, lifestyle (e.g. tobacco, alcohol, sun exposure, and age). The result may be observed immediately after treatment, and gradually enhances over the following days, as the light initial inflammation reduces and the product's final rehydration is established; the effect achieved with a session cannot be assessed until a week or two later. It has been found that, after six months, most patients treated still retain 50-80% of the effect achieved.

It consists of mesotherapy formulations combining different families of active ingredients:
