Pain in the Treatment Area

Infection

infectionAn enormous amount of precaution must be taken when injecting PRP serum or mesotherapy into a patient.
 
Intensive sterilization procedures should be followed closely for each treatment, as infection can sometimes occur in the injured area.
 

Allergic Reaction

Likewise, some minerals and vitamins in the content of mesotherapy may result in an allergic reaction.
