Mesotherapy : Mesotherapy is not fda approved. On that basis, its not recommended, as there simply isn't good data showing that it is both safe and effective.

No: The asps states: there is very limited scientific evidence on mesotherapy or injection lipolysis for fat reduction. The scientific evidence that does exist is of low quality and does not allow asps to support a recommendation for the use of mesotherapy for fat reduction. Furthermore, despite claims, there are no fda-approved uses of drugs for mesotherapy.
