In this technique, very fine needles are used to inject the cocktail solution into the mesoderm (middle layer) of the skin. While there isn’t a standard formula, doctors evolve their own mix with ingredients like prescription drugs like vasodilators and antibiotics; hormones such as calcitonin and thyroxin; enzymes like collagenase and hyaluronidase; herbal extracts and vitamins and minerals.
