Mesotherapy for hair regrowth involves the technique of injecting nutrient-rich liquid in the mesoderm of the scalp – the layer under the epidermis which serves as a link between the layer of fats and the tissues of the skin. This is done with the help of a special mesotherapy gun that carries a sterile needle that injects the solution in the scalp. This treatment usually spans over a period of eight sessions, one every week for a duration of half an hour each. One must be patient and composed while taking this treatment as visible results are only observed after the fifth session.
The basis of the treatment substance that is injected during the therapy depends on the cause for the hair fall experienced. Since this substance generally contains vitamins, nutrients and other tissue friendly materials, this treatment is considered safe with usually no side effects or allergic reactions. The patients who undergo this treatment experience no or minimal pain and least discomfort making mesotherapy an easy solution for getting rid of the chronic problem of balding.
Another hair and scalp problem that can be treated by mesotherapy is dandruff. This alternative should, however, only be used in case of severe dandruff problems.
Mesotherapy is a technique that uses injections of vitamins, enzymes, hormones and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat.
Michel Pistor, a doctor in France, developed the technique in 1952. It was originally used to relieve pain. In the years since it has gained popularity in the United States and other parts of the world.
Today, mesotherapy is used to:
Remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face.
Fade wrinkles and lines.
Tighten loose skin.
Recontour the body.
Lighten pigmented skin.
Treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss.
The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of skin. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.
There isn’t a standard formula for the substances injected in mesotherapy. Doctors use many different solutions, including:
Prescription medicines like vasodilators and antibiotics.
Hormones such as calcitonin and thyroxin.
Enzymes like collagenase and hyaluronidase.
Vitamins and minerals.
