What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy or intradermotherapy is a non-surgical procedure, widely used in Europe to treat injuries and medical conditions. It consists of the administration of microinjections with conventional or homeopathic medicines, whose ingredients may vary, but usually include plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, in the middle layer of the skin. Injected substances differ according to purpose and, within the scope of aesthetics, are generally of natural origin.
Therefore, mesotherapy is considered a relatively invasive technique given the application of intradermal microinjections, at less than 4mm deep of the epidermis.
Historical review that underlies mesotherapy?
The story that has propelled the intradermo-therapeutic technique is well known. Pistor received a patient with an asthmatic crisis and gave him intravenous procaine for bronchodilation. This patient also had a chronic auditory deficit. The next day, the patient reported to the physician that, after 40 years of deafness, he had been able to hear the church bell again, relating that fact to the injection received. The hearing had improved briefly. The physician gave intradermal injections of this product in the mastoid region and the patient had a temporary hearing recovery. He continued with procaine injections in several patients and in 1958 published his findings in La Presse Medicale, in an article entitled "Exposé sommaire des propriétés nouvelles de la procaine local en pathologie humain" (Brief exposition of new properties of procaine applied locally in human pathology).
The physician concluded that sensorineural stimulation was produced by procaine, but in a short period. Pistor believed that this therapeutic modality based on intradermal injections was so important that it deserved its own denomination, mesotherapy, given the embryological origin of the dermis.
Although this is the most well-known landmark in intradermotherapy, there are previous experiences that ground Pistor's conduct.
Homeopathy was first mentioned by Hippocrates (462-377 BC), but it was the physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) who established the basic principles of homeopathy: law of similarity, direction of cure, principle of single remedy, theory minimum diluted dose and chronic disease. In 1884, Koller, an ophthalmologist, reported on his experience in local use of cocaine for pain management. In 1904, Einhorn discovered a new anesthetic with a lower risk of triggering dependence, procaine. In 1925, Leriche applied intradermal injections in the intercostal spaces. In 1937, Aron published a study on the intradermal injection of a histamine solution and concluded that the intradermal injection of any product in a painful place would have an analgesic effect. However, it was from Pistor that the intradermotherapy received more attention, and the French Society of Mesotherapy was founded in 1964. Thus, the technique spread throughout the world.
Pistor, in 1976, summed up the technique with the words: "Little, seldom, and in the right place." The founder of mesotherapy himself acknowledged that such recommendations were empirical and based on his personal clinical experience. He said he realized that while larger doses did not make a difference to the clinical outcome, multiple punctures looked better than few injections.
