Many celebrities have mastered the art of looking ageless and have been acclaimed as timeless beauties. They have technology to thank, of course, as no one can escape the onslaught of time and the havoc it wreaks, especially on the face where wrinkles and fine lines are easily noticed and sagging skin around the neck presents a not-too-pretty picture. Techniques such as mesotherapy and laser therapy have proved to be a boon as they are non-invasive and not time-consuming, hence proving extremely convenient. In fact, Bollywood divas routinely go under the scalpel, but more often than not are thoroughly dissatisfied with the results. This happens due to misleading reports and profiles by the media, which build up sometimes highly ridiculous expectations!

It is important to know how this procedure developed in order to assess its failings. Its origin can be traced back to 1952, when it was pioneered by Dr Michel Pastor, a French physician. It mainly consists of tiny medicinal bullets injected into the middle layer of skin called mesoderm. It has gained tremendous popularity for its anti-ageing benefits as well as for eliminating cellulite and localized fat deposits.
Considering it’s a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures, which delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and even stimulate metabolism; then surely it must be touted as a wonder cure. How is it that is has not received recognition and is relegated to a complementary technique? What does it best work with: laser therapy or some other form of body sculpting?
