Gwyneth’s a fan, but should you give this treatment involving super-fine injections of skin-nourishing ingredients a go?

Developed in France in the 1950s by Dr Michel Pistor, who was awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur for his troubles (equivalent to a knighthood), mesotherapy was recognised as a medical treatment by the French Academy of Medicine in 1987. It can be used for pain management and alopecia, but also for aesthetic rejuvenation.

The thinking is that, as we age, the epidermis (outermost layer of our skin) thins, and skin cell-renewal slows, leading to drying and ageing of our skin. Part of the reason is that we produce less collagen. During mesotherapy, superfine injections of vitamins, minerals and amino acids are delivered directly to the mesodermal (middle) layer of the skin. This nourishes, rejuvenates and stimulates production of collagen and elastin to encourage skin cells to function at an optimum level.
