In 1952, Dr. Michael pistor, a french doctor accidentally discovered mesotherapy. The meaning of the word Mesotherapy is treatment that stimulates mesoderm. Dr. Pistor defined it as '' The pratice of injecting little amount of medication, into the mesoderm at the right spot." Like in sports medicine where the amount of NSAID drugs injected is 60 times less than the traditionally orally ingested medicine over a period of 8 days , that makes the drug more efficient with least side effects. In mesotherapy there may be the combination of two or three active medications , and can also be administered in a single injection.
