    TLDR The document concludes that mesotherapy can be effective for skin and hair treatments, but more research is needed to confirm its safety and effectiveness.
    The document from September 10, 2020, reviews mesotherapy in aesthetic dermatology, a non-surgical procedure involving injections of mesococktails for skin rejuvenation, lipolysis, pigmentation, and hair loss. It emphasizes the importance of selecting the right compounds and techniques for effective results, noting that ingredients should be water-soluble, isotonic, and non-allergenic, with hyaluronic acid being a popular choice. The article describes various injection techniques and mesoproducts, including DMAE for muscle firmness, peptides for skin rejuvenation, and FDA-approved deoxycholic acid for submental fat reduction. It also mentions the use of minoxidil and finasteride for hair loss, except in autoimmune alopecia cases. Despite the potential of mesotherapy, the document stresses the lack of randomized controlled trials to confirm efficacy and safety and calls for standardization in the field. Dermatologists are advised to exercise caution and ensure proper patient selection and informed consent.
