Does Mesotherapy hurt?
Mesotherapy injections are injected into the mesoderm layer of the skin, hence these are very superficial 1 to 4 millimeter injections. They do not hurt since we incorporate Procaine (a local anesthetic) into the solution. Most patients would rate the pain rating to be a 1 to 2 out of 10 with 10 being very painful. A topical anesthetic cream can also be applied ahead of time upon request (extra charges apply).
How many Mesotherapy treatments do I need?
We recommend a series of 4 Mesotherapy injections at 1 week intervals to start with subsequent treatments spaced out at 2 to 4 week intervals for a few times. Patients with chronic pain can opt for monthly injections as well.
What are the side effects of Mesotherapy?
Because this is an all-natural injection containing nutrients and homeopathics, the chances of reaction to the solution is very low. However, on rare cases, patients may have a hypersensitivity reaction with hives, itchiness and swelling; in which case taking a Benadryl will help. The most common side effects are pain at injection site, bruising, and possible healing reactions where you feel worse before you feel better.
How much does Mesotherapy cost?
The initial visit is 15 minutes in duration and cost $40. Our Naturopathic Doctors will examine your pain site, assess it and go over the treatment with you. If indicated, you will receive your first Mesotherapy treatment following the initial assessment (cost of treatment is $80 and will be added to the $40 initial visit fee). Extra solution for extra pain sites may be added during the session for an extra $55. The follow-up visits are 15 minutes in duration where our Naturopathic Doctors will examine your pain site and administer the solution. Follow-up visits cost $80. Please note we will bill the Naturopathic Visit portion of the treatment to insurance and the Supplies portion of $10 will be the responsibility of the patient.
Is Mesotherapy covered by my Extended Health Plan?
Yes, Mesotherapy can be covered by your extended health plan if you have "Naturopathic Medicine" or "Naturopath" coverage. Because this treatment is performed by our Naturopathic Doctors, it is billed as "Naturopathic administration of a natural remedy". Please check with your insurance provider if you have Naturopathic coverage or call our clinic for a pre-determination. Please note we will bill the Naturopathic Visit portion of the treatment to insurance and the Supplies portion of $10 will be the responsibility of the patient.

Mesotherapy for Body Pain
Reduce and control your pain with Mesotherapy treatments! Natural ingredients in Mesotherapy injections can help reduce inflammation, relax muscle tension, and improve healing time.
In 1793, French scientist Antoine Francois from France first saw positive therapeutic effects by injecting natural substances subcutaneously. Later in 1952, Michel Pistor coined the term Mesotherapy and the French Society of Mesotherapy was created shortly after. Today, Mesotherapy has variable uses from dissolving fat cells to repairing connective tissues in joints. At our clinic, we use different combinations of homeopathic solutions and procaine to help with joint and muscle pain.
