Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mesotherapy or subcutaneous fat dissolution for cosmetic purposes has been described using phosphatidylcholine. A literature search found no reports of the use of lipase for mesotherapy. Substances for cosmetic mesotherapy are not licensed for use in the United Kingdom. We report a case of self injection using lipase obtained from the internet.
