What is mesotherapy
Mesotherapy is part of a branch of medicine called homotoxicology which is purported to encourage the body to stimulate its own healing processes in order to cure ailments. It can be used for painful as well as general medical conditions. This non-scientific procedure originated in France , and is now promoted by some practitionerseverywhere. Mesotherapy concerns include bruising, allergic reactions, liver damage, atrophy (loss of tissue volume) and infection.
Dr. Michel Pistor (1924-2003) is credited with both the creation and promotion of mesotherapy in humans, first in Europe and then in North America starting in the 1950s. Europe and South America initially embraced the use of Mesotherapy and about 50,000 practitioners provide mesotherapy treatments.
Moisturizers or moisturisers are complex mixtures of chemical agents specially designed to make the external layers of the skin ( epidermis ) softer and more pliable, by increasing its hydration ( water content). Naturally occurring skin lipids and sterols as well as artificial or natural oils , humectants , emollients , lubricants , etc. may be part of the composition of commercial skin moisturizers. They usually are available as commercial products for cosmetic and therapeutic uses, but can also be prepared at home using common pharmacy ingredients.
Besides imparting or restoring normal levels of hydration to the skin, moisturizers can have several additional intended and unintended effects on their users, including building a barrier against the loss of water through the epidermis, repairing scaly, damaged or dry skin resulting from external environmental aggressions or internal changes (such as in acne or naturally dry skin), repairing or postponing the aging effects on the skin, etc.
