Solutions vary widely

Mesotherapy solutions or "cocktails" as they are sometimes called can vary widely. In my practice I use phophatidyl choline and deoxycholate, with lidocaine.

Solution that is used to inject in Mesotherapy...

Mesotherapy solutions can vary widely from practice to practice and there are no set components.  Some of the most commonly used solutions are hylauronic acid, phosphatidyl choline, other enzymes, and amino acids.  There is not a large amount of research delineating the safety of Mesotherapy, but in general, all of these solutions are natural and safe.  Mesotherapy is intended to dissolve and reduce unwanted areas of fat.  It is only useful for small areas, however, and liposuction would be needed to create a nice effect when large fatty areas are present.  Usually several sessions are recommended  to achieve the desired outcome.  Injections are relatively painless, and the potential side effects are limited to minor swelling and soreness, burning, minor skin discoloration and a slight risk of infection.  Make an appointment with an experienced mesotherapy physician to determine if you are a good candidate.

When doing mesotherapy for fat reduction, phophatidyl choline and deoxycholate are the products most commonly used.   These products are  effective for localized fat reduction.  Multiple treatments are necessary for maximum improvement.
