If I held up a syringe and said I'm not going to tell what's in it, but can I inject you, you would probably run a mile. If I said I could treat cellulite, you might waver. Apparently, some women do when they opt to have mesotherapy, an injectable treatment for cellulite.

Mesotherapy is unregulated and there are no standard procedures. The Aesthetic Surgery and Education Foundation is currently conducting an FDA approved study into mesotherapy to see whether it actually works and what, if it does, the syringe should actually contain.

Mesotherapy uses a cocktail of fat cell busting medications, vitamins and plant extracts. No two doctors will necessarily administer the same cocktail. Some seem to use an emphysema drug called aminophylline. One study in 1999 suggested that there is no evidence that aminophylline works. Other practitioners use a couple of biological detergents (one comes from cow bile) that are known fat cell busters. One of them, phosphatidylcholine is a licensed drug in Germany for treating blood vessel blockages. It is not licensed for cosmetic surgery.

    Got to this article via today's (9/29/09) article on non surgical filler.

    I tried mesotherapy- one of the biggest regrets of my life. Pailful and ineffective, with some nerve damage thrown in. Wow what a mistake that was.

    <p>I'm probably going to regret this because manufacturers will think there is a free-for -all to post propaganda about their products. Nevertheless, I did take a look at Natural Collagen and thought it interesting enough to do a post. I took a look at the night cream because it was the only one I could find a full ingredients list on. It looks pretty good. Having said that, George your web site sucks. Really, the navigation was designed by a sadist. </p>

    <p>Here is much simpler and safer way to fight cellulite which I would like to suggest for your evaluation biologically active and transdermal gel collagen, COSMECEUTICALS with cure effects on skin, eyes, nails, hair and the whole body.</p>

    <p>Natural Collagen offers excellent and quick results is 100% natural, pure, live and biologically active. Contains no artificial additives, no coloring and is odorless. It does not cause skin addiction nor it has any undesirable side effects. </p>

    <p>Natural Collagen Q5-26 with its so called "triple helix" cell structure, which makes it biologically active is the only living collagen product identical to human protein. So it fights the causes, not just the effects of ageing.</p>

    <p>Natural Collagen Q5-26 gel thanks to its transdermal effect is absorbed by the skin and forms a fine mesh like structure of protein, supplementing any deficiencies and initiating the process of skin regeneration and rejuvenation.<br />
