What Is Mesotherapy?
There’s a lot of buzz about using Mesotherapy to treat androgenetic alopecia.
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical technique that involves the use of microinjections containing vitamins and medications.
Tiny injections are inserted into the middle layer, just below the epidermis area or top layer of your skin. This area is also known as your skin's mesoderm layer, approximately 1mm beneath the surface.
Mesotherapy treatments use a unique formulation of nutrients, core enzymes, vitamins, amino acids, growth factors, minerals, or hair loss medications, like minoxidil, to treat hair loss.
How Does Mesotherapy Work For Hair Loss?
Mesotherapy is mostly used to treat a lack of sufficient nutrients in the mesoderm area.
This deficiency restricts blood flow to the scalp, causing poor hair growth and hair loss due to a disruption in the hair growth cycle.
Mesotherapy injections contain the perfect mix of vitamins that improve blood circulation to the scalp region and stimulate your hair follicles for enhanced growth.
They also gradually restore your hormonal balance for healthy hair growth.
The excess production of the hormone DHT causes havoc to your hair follicles, disrupting hair growth. Mesotherapy treatments reverse the effects of DHT, creating a healthy environment for hair growth.
Tiny injections are made in the areas that require support like the hairline, in scalp areas, or those areas commonly associated with female pattern hair loss.
How Often Will You Need Mesotherapy Treatments?
Your treatments will be based on your specific needs.
However, you may need to undergo 10 sessions initially to create a healthy scalp environment and stimulate hair growth.
You may receive Mesotherapy treatments every 2 weeks for the first 3 months, then --after a period-- decrease the frequency of these treatments to every 3 months.
How Soon Will You See Results?
Your experience may differ from someone else due to the severity of your condition, the number of visits, and other factors.
In most cases, you may see noticeable results within 2-3 months of initiating treatment.
However, you may not see the full benefit of your Mesotherapy treatment until 6 months later.
The Common Side Effects Of Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy is a painless process. However, you might experience pain after a therapy session. Other side effects may sometimes include:
- Injection site bumps that last a few hours after treatment
Care And Maintenance
There are no major care requirements after the Mesotherapy session and you can return to your normal activities after the treatment is complete.
You should know Mesotherapy isn’t going to work the same way for everyone.
Your hair loss treatment protocol may be different from someone else’s.
Always talk with a specialist about what makes you a candidate for Mesotherapy.
