In brief: Little evidence
I'm not a big fan of mesotherapy, and am not aware of any significant well done study, published in a peer-reviewed journal, that documents its safety and effectiveness.
I don't recommend it to my patients. There are reports of complications. See http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pmc/articles/pmc3002412/ & http://www.Livestrong.Com/article/234119-complications-of-mesotherapy/.

In brief: Unproven
Mesotherapy is not fda approved.
There is no standardization of the formulas used. No one can predict the results or the side effects. The stuff doesn't melt fat - it kills it, leaving lumpy scar deposits that are hard to correct. Not recommended, no matter how cheap it might be.
