Mesotherapy for Hair Loss

Hair loss can bring you a lot of trouble, embarrassment, and anxiety. It can result from many things, including family history, extreme stress, physical or emotional shock, hormonal issues, or a specific medical condition. If you’ve always wished your hair was more shiny, graceful, and thick, you might want to think about getting a Mesotherapy treatment as soon as possible.

Mesotherapy treatment for hair is a simple method applied by injecting vitamins, minerals, and amino acid mixtures necessary for healthy hair, into the scalp. This method enables the components that nourish your hair follicles to easily settle in the hair. With Mesotherapy treatment, hair loss can be treated; thinned hair can become thicker, stop hair loss, and make your hair much more vital and shinier.

Not many people are satisfied with their hair nowadays. These days, hair has become heavily polluted due to the environment, air, and water. Not to mention extreme stress, tension, and sleeping disorders that make people so uncomfortable, which, in return, negatively affect their hair.

These modern-day issues are negatively affecting our hair, skin, and natural beauty. However, modern-day problems require modern-day solutions. Therefore, treatments like Mesotherapy can always be your last resort to solve your hair problems.

How Does Mesotherapy Treatment Work?

Mesotherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to restore volume and nourishment to thinning hair. It involved inserting micro-injections of pharmaceutical agents, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and more into the epidermal layer of the scalp. This process stimulates the mesoderm layer and encourages new hair growth and production.

Since most hair loss problems occur due to hormonal imbalances around the hair follicles, lack of proper nutrients that result in healthy hair, and reduced blood circulation to the scalp, Mesotherapy targets all of these issues and works based on them.

Hair Mesotherapy, or mesohair, involves injecting medications directly into the scalp. This treatment acts directly on the epidermis, dermal connective tissue, circulation, and hair follicles. In addition, the Mesotherapy solution is tailored based on the patient’s vitamins, co-enzymes, amino acids, and minerals needs.

Mesotherapy can help improve certain forms of alopecia, such as telogen effluvium, androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, and nutritional hair loss. Nevertheless, there is very little scientific evidence to show that this technique can actually eliminate hair loss.

The primary purpose of this treatment is to restore and increase microcirculation in the scalp, provide nutrients, slow down the shrinking of follicles, and stimulate hair growth.

  • Dandruff.
  • Scratched and dry scalp: Mesotherapy can help hydrate and nourish the scalp.
