Mesotherapy is a medical technique that involves repeatedly injecting low doses of drugs into the surface layers of the skin. It is targeted in particular for musculoskeletal diseases, the management of which requires certain drugs that may have adverse effects. By its intradermal route, it could present several advantages, but also disadvantages such as the risk of infection. The heterogeneous protocols and the low level of proof of the published articles question its effectiveness.
