Liquid Drugs in Mesopuncture, Liquid Drugs in Mesotherapy

Liquid Drugs, with / without pharmacological effect in Mesopuncture. Only with pharmacological effect in Mesotherapy


It is sometimes desirable to join
o   to the Acupuncture Point _AP stimulus by the metal acupuncture needle, (internal stimulus) or by massage, pulsed light waves (external stimulus) producing the Acupuncture Effect we qualify of metal needle or needle, for the convenience of this publication,
o    A stimulus by liquid drug (Mesopuncture), injected or passively deposited without needle into the AP  by iontophoresis and also producing an Acupuncture Effect by liquid stimulus of PA ..
o   It also makes sense to repeat this injection into the dermis, star shaped around the AP, in order to create Mesotherapy Points_ MPs-, possibly with the same device, the same or not liquid drug injected or deposited, without re-insertion of the needle into the AP with the same iontophoresis apparatus or the same BMN device....
**-* Liquid drugs
There are two categories of liquid drugs that can be used in the fluid stimulus of the AP.

o   The liquid drug without therapeutic or pharmacological action but with a mechanical action by irritation (by its volume, its physicochemical structure…), of the AP which generates an ‘Acupuncture effect’. It is used to boost or add by a fluid stimulus creating an Acupuncture Effect by liquid drug, the classic metal needle stimulation or Classical Acupuncture which produces an Acupuncture Effect by metallic stimulus of the AP. 
In this category of drugs, inactive in Mesotherapy, you will find: distilled water or serum, the duration of its effect is short.
For hyaluronic acid, the duration is several months.  
                   **-*Its use is inactive in Mesotherapy.

o   The liquid drug with Therapeutic Pharmacological Effect: This effect is added to the Acupuncture Effect of the liquid stimulation to complete the particularity of Mesopuncture.
In this latter case, the medical device which was used to inject the liquid drug into the AP can create into the dermis surrounding this AP, various Mesotherapy points, also.
Its use by the Therapist depends on his qualification to use, or not, injectable with/without a therapeutic effect

** The liquid drug with pharmacological therapeutic action, depending on its physicochemical structure, which is also an AP stimulus:
It produces a fluid stimulus of the AP or Acupuncture Effect superimposed on its own Pharmacological Effect and added to the classic Acupuncture Effect, already obtained both
·         by internal way, acupuncture needle or hypodermic needle, or
·         by external way: massage, pulsed light, etc.

**-* The medical device
The liquid drug is injected into the AP by needle or deposited into the AP without needle by iontophoresis.
The medical device used to allow the liquid drug with pharmacological effect to reach the AP is used to create into the dermis around the AP, Mesotherapy points as performed by BMN without removing the needle inserted into the PA. 
This set of acupuncture effect and pharmacological effect characterizes Mesopuncture.

** The liquid drug into the AP
The duration of AP activation, i.e., the duration of the Acupuncture Effect, is identical to the duration of the Pharmacological Effect recognized by the Pharmacopoeia, both dependent on the physicochemical structure of the liquid drug.
In general, the drugs have an Acupuncture Effect with duration equal to or greater than the Acupuncture Effect of the conventional metal acupuncture needle.
. Other drugs have an Acupuncture Effect of long duration or still very long with a "Pharmacological Effect" of the same duration.
It is interesting to have very long acting drugs such as hyaluronic acid, which allows to obtain an Acupuncture Effect of very long duration, the "Pharmacological Effect" of same duration not having any harmful impact on   the patient’s health, hyaluronic acid is a said drug comfort. With this medication, for example, of very long duration of pharmacological action, stimulation of the AP is also of very long lasting, allowing space acupuncture session.

**-* Liquid drug metabolism injected locally
Locally, injected the drug, which retains its therapeutic properties, has a specific development, common to all injections in Western medicine:

It acts, in first, directly on the altered area and, a second time, after passing in the blood, it reaches the liver where it is conjugated and returns to the altered area.

Acupuncture Mesopuncture with/without needle

Acupuncture Mesopuncture with needle or with the BMN and Acupuncture Mesopuncture without needles, virtual or with iontophoresis
Note: It is spoken of VIRTUAL Mesopuncture that is to say without using needles, inserted into the skin. One could also say NOT INVASIVE.
**-* The Acupuncture Point_ AP begins in the epidermis and ends in the subcutaneous connective tissue.
In fact, according to
SOULIE DE MORANT, the sensitivity of the skin, at the surface of the AP even if it is deep, is part of the AP.
Professor SENELAR of the Medicine Faculty of Montpellier-France, describes the AP, in histology, as an open well in the epidermis to be terminated in the subcutaneous tissue.
* The stimulus
This explains the possibility of stimulating the AP and obtaining the Acupuncture Effect externally, without using, as with the acupuncture needle, the internal pathway.  
In the same way, using a liquid drug as an AP stimulus, this liquid drug can be
Either injected with a needle it is the internal way of the liquid stimulus
Or some drops of this liquid drug can be deposited at the skin surface, on which will be applied the iontophoresis apparatus. 
The Therapist selects, depending on the health or aesthetic disorder, the APs for stimulation with/without needles; also he selects the appropriate drug for the case to be treated.
* There are two kinds of APs selected: AP already labeled and AP revealed by pain at pressure or ASCHI point.

** - * Current application
Courses on alterations of health or aesthetics are easily found on the net, on which Mesopuncture is applied without difficulty in its two versions without / with associated or not associated with acupuncture and Mesotherapy.
*-* An application running is found easily in the network, courses on alterations of health or of aesthetic on which is applied without difficulty the Mesopuncture in its two versions without/with needles associated or not, with Acupuncture and Mesotherapy.
Aesthetics:  Facial, hands, neck and hairy leather.
Pain, rheumatism, sports.
Body Aesthetics: Overweight, Cellulitis,
Nervous disorders of daily life
Addiction: Alcohol Tobacco Sweets…
We already know that
• The location of AP is fixed and known since millennia, on the skin surface,
Its activation can be performed by a liquid drug injected or deposited without needles by iontophoresis.

**-* Mesotherapy Points _ MPs are created in all part of the dermis, in the same way with a few drops of drug.  It is to avoid any confusion that APs are located, at first, in the courses, with diagrams and legends in order to determine thus, the entire skin surface, between the APs, where the Mesotherapy Points will be created.

**-* The treatment

*- Usually, Mesopuncture Acupuncture...
The AP is stimulated with a compact acupuncture needle inserted into the AP, and with a deposit of liquid drug injected into the AP by an injection needle.
. You can take advantage of this injection, to create with the same insertion of this same needle or with a shorter needle, specific of Mesotherapy, and a same drug throughout the whole dermis around the AP, by numerous deposits of few drops of drug creating thus, Mesotherapy Points _ MPs.
It is done so, Mesotherapy Acupuncture Mesopuncture or MAM with three needle insertions: A compact Acupuncture needle and a needle with syringe for Mesopuncture and a shorter needle for Mesotherapy.

**- A less invasive version is the use of BMN, a hollow acupuncture needle, surmounted by a deformable reservoir filled by the therapist, with two fingers, with the drug chosen as appropriate to treat.
The BMN needle is inserted into the AP, needle of same diameter as the acupuncture needle, including APs of the back: BMN does not prevent prone or supine decubitus. After a few moments, necessary to perform acupuncture, with the same needle insertion in the skin and the same drug, Mesopuncture can be, by injection of some drops of the drug from the reservoir, in the AP and Mesotherapy by deposits of few drops of drug, in the dermis around the AP. 
·                    With the same BMN, it has been able to perform, in a single insertion, the MAM: Mesotherapy Acupuncture Mesopuncture.
**- In the non-invasive version without needle
The AP is stimulated with external stimuli, through the skin: massage, light, heat, waves...  

**- To already well-known stimulants must be added,  stimulation by a liquid drug or Mesopuncture, deposited in the AP, without needles by iontophoresis:
The iontophoresis (or virtual Mesotherapy) apparatus allows, thanks to an electric current, a few drops, the drug liquid chosen, extended over the skin, crossing through the skin and reaching the deeper layers of the skin and connective tissue where is located the AP.
• When moving the virtual Mesotherapy device, around the AP (the AP is 5mm in diameter), the drug is allowed to reach the dermis around the AP and, thus, create the MPs.
The MAM or Mesotherapy Acupuncture Mesopuncture, without needles, has thus been performed.
This type of treatment is used by all types of Professionals invested in aesthetics, beauty, sports, etc.

How I Treat Back Pain N°2, by Acupuncture Mesopuncture

How I Treat Back Pain N°2, by Acupuncture Mesopuncture and Trigger Points with BMN:Acupuncture Hypodermic Needle
 Some liquid drugs of delayed effect have a pharmacological effect of 3-4 weeks and an Acupuncture effect of the same duration. These liquid drugs have the same therapeutic indications in Acupuncture/Mesopuncture and Medicine.
  • What are the advantages related to using Mesopuncture in the back pain
In addition to the small volume of liquid drug used and proximity between the treated area and altered back area, we can detail the particularity of becoming of the liquid drug injected locally into the skin
As in Mesotherapy, the liquid drug performs, at the level of the painful area, two therapeutic actions,
  First therapeutic action: From the injection point, the liquid drug directly reaches the altered area.
Second therapeutic action, after passage in the bloodstream and liver the liquid drug returns to the painful area which then receives twice the liquid drug.

Particular case of Hyaluronic Acid _HA
Some liquid drugs of delayed effect, have a pharmacological effect of 3-4 weeks and an Acupuncture effect of same duration. These liquid drugs have the same therapeutic indications in Acupuncture/Mesopuncture and Medicine, which restricts the indications, in Mesopuncture, of longer duration stimulation, when the Therapist wishes to space the needles insertion, for other health disorders.
One exception the hyaluronic acid
Injected into the AP, its ‘Acupuncture Effect’ is of very long duration without, general or localized or harmful 'Pharmacological Effect’, its action is mainly physical, mechanical in Mesopuncture as in aesthetic medicine.   
We retain its stimulating action of very long duration of the AP, several months, allowing to space the Acupuncture sessions.
Mention may be made in the same vein of burial catgut or titanium implant in Auriculoterapia.

In general, Acupuncture and Mesopuncture are realized by different needles requiring insertions of two kinds of needles that is to say a double insertion pain for each AP: Insertion of compact acupuncture needle, and then, insertion of hypodermic needle.
·         For our part, in order to optimize the pain of multiple insertions in several APs, we use the BMN which allows performing with the same needle inserted in the same AP, both Acupuncture and Mesopuncture and all around the APs, creating Mesotherapy Points. The latter are created in the skin area of the affected region of the body, by liquid drug micro-deposits into the dermis or superficial hypodermis avoiding the APs.
The Therapist first localizes the selected APs to treat back pain of his patient.
He fills the BMN reservoir with the liquid drug he had selected to treat this back pain.
He inserts the BMN in the APs including APs in the back or abdomen, allowing the dorsal or ventral decubitus.
After about twenty minutes, he injects in each AP (Mesopuncture) few drops of a liquid drug from the reservoir, then, he creates, also in the dermis around the AP,   according to a star-shape, micro-deposits of few drops of this same liquid drug, the Mesotherapy Points _ MPs.

According to TRAVELL and SIMONS a Trigger Point_ TP is define as a tender nodule, a painful or sensitive muscular knot, hyper-irritable, limited and located in a firm, tight and palpable band of skeletal muscular fibers, the taut band.
It is an irritable spot either spontaneously (active TP) or on digital compression (latent TP) able of generating either a local or referred pain to other musculature.
'Other signs' are also described: Motor dysfunction, neuro vegetative signs such as sweating, swelling, and "goose bumps."

Once localized (in the muscles, tendons etc.), the TPs are treated either with a needle-free injection (Dry Needling) or by injecting a liquid drug in the TP.
TPs exhibit a local twitch response (muscle fasciculation) or a global jump sign (flexion response) in response to digital pressure or Dry & Wet Needling.
In general Dry & Wet Needling are associated and are performed by the same BMN device.
The needle length of the BMN is 13mm.
All TPs can be treated by the BMN needle, performing both Dry & Wet needling according to two versions depending on the TPs depth:
·         Direct Dry & Wet Needling when the needle is inserted the superficial TP.

·         Indirect Dry & Wet Needling when the needle is inserted between the skin and the deep TP.
