Side effects of mesotherapy
For patients who undergo mesotherapy, the side effects are minimal. Some patients who have a particularly low pain threshold may receive a topical anesthetic before treatment, but most patients consider that the injections are only mildly annoying.
Some patients feel a mild burning after the injection, as the compound begins to dissolve the fat, but it lasts little and is not common in all patients. Mesotherapy is related to the sensation of insensibility in isolated areas; but like other side effects of mesotherapy, this dims between a few days and two weeks.
