19 Mar 2014

The Society of Mesotherapy of the United Kingdom (SOMUK) has been launched to promote the use of mesotherapy in the UK. 

The Society of Mesotherapy of the United Kingdom (SOMUK) has been launched to promote the use of mesotherapy in the UK. 

The society provides healthcare professionals with access to the latest mesotherapy tools, information, research and protocols for all disciplines of mesotherapy, including: facial rejuvenation, lipolysis, fat reduction, cellulite, MesoSculpting, Mesolift, Mesobotox, alopecia and pain management.

Mesotherapy remains relatively new and unknown to many aesthetic practitioners in the UK, though a popular aesthetic treatment in France, South America, and Europe. The SOMUK is the exclusive member of the International Society of Mesotherapy (SIM) and works closely with the French Society of Mesotherapy. SOMUK courses are CPD accredited within the UK.

Dr Philippe Hamida-Pisal, president of the society, said, “The SOMUK teaches the art, science, techniques and procedures of Mesotherapy to licensed practitioners, regardless of their specialty. We provide education and hands-on training within the UK and across the globe. Members will be able to tap into this resource and grow their knowledge and skill base within Mesotherapy and promote the SOMUKs aims to bring Mesotherapy to the forefront of aesthetic medicine in the UK.”

Dr Mohamed Bocus, GP at The Greenwich Peninusla Practice and new member of the SOMUK said, “I am a GP in the UK and traditionally we are sceptics about the benefits of alternative medicine. However, with growing interests from patients we need to learn more about what is available. I will be attending the upcoming training sessions, as more and more patients are asking about mesotherapy.”
