I took 8 diprofos injections from february to april 2010 for a mesotherapy treatment for fat reduction and I developed cushing -syndrom like side effects ( Water retention, low potassium, moon face, small acne with black heads, weight gain (big stomach and upper arms area)). I have gained about 20 kilos from it and have lost 10kilos since. My current weight is 88 kg and height 168 cm. How long does the cortisone side effects take to entirely leave the body? Can it also be the cause of stubborn fat (adipose tissue??) around the stomach and upper arms which are hard to get rid off also when exercising? Does it also lower the immune system?
