Mesotherapy for hair loss

OVERVIEW

mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical technique that uses injections of vitamins, amino acids, hormones, enzymes, and plant extracts to rejuvenate, tighten skin, and remove excess fat. Mesotherapy is the most popular treatment performed throughout Europe, was developed by France doctor Michael Pistor in 1952. The original purpose was to relieve the pain.

Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure where a series of micro-injection is delivered into the mesoderm or middle layer of skin. 

Mesotherapy for hair loss 

Mesotherapy in hair loss, the professionals uses very fine needles to deliver the ingredients into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and tissue underneath the skin. The most common cause of hair loss is due to lack of proper nutrients; reduce blood circulation and hormonal factors. Mesotherapy can deliver the exact nutrient to the right place around the hair follicles, where it is really needed. Mesotherapy can also increase circulation, reduces the inflammation, and even counteract the excess of DHT in the underlying tissues of the scalp. Hence, mesotherapy can stimulate the hair follicle and effectively treat hair loss in both men and women

As such there is no standard formula for the substance injected in mesotherapy; though it depends on the condition you are suffering from. There are different solutions or substances used as mentioned below:

•Formulated medicines like vasodilators such as minoxidil and so on.

•Hormones such as thyroxin or calcitonin

•Enzymes like collagenase or hyaluronidase

•Herbal Extracts

•Vitamins, minerals or amino acid

Mesotherapy is a supportive treatment to the traditional, medical, or other interventional therapy for hair loss due to male or female pattern hair loss. 

To treat alopecia or hair loss vitamins, minerals, natural plant extracts, or medicines such as minoxidil and finasteride are injected into the scalp. Mesotherapy reduces hair loss, aids hair growth, and inhibits the further process of male or female pattern baldness.

Side effects:                                                                 

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical or minimal-invasive technique, performed as an out-patient procedure. The treatment is safe as the injected ingredient usually contains vitamins, minerals, plant extracts and so on which usually do not cause allergic or side effects. During the treatment the injections are given with a very fine needle, thereby the patient may feel mild discomfort or pain.

Though few side effects are noted:

•Nausea

•Pain in sensitive patients

•Itching or redness and swelling

•Bruising or bumps at the injection site

•Discoloration of the skin

Risk factors: 

The patient suffering from diabetes, bleeding disorder, hemophilia, or during pregnancy the procedure should not be carried out; and in patients with chronic skin, disorders need to be done with caution. However, patients on certain medications such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can increase the risk of bleeding therapy; hence have to stop one week prior to the procedure.

Procedure:

Prior to therapy, a topical numbing cream is applied in a very sensitive patient. The professional uses either a specific fine needle or a meso gun to deliver the series of injections. The depth of injection into the skin varies from 1to 4 mm and upon the condition being treated. At every injection, it places only a tiny drop of substance into the skin to the affected area of hair loss.

Mesotherapy for hair loss requires multiple sessions 5 to 15 to achieve the optimum results. In the beginning, the therapy is usually performed once in 10 to 15 days, and in due course, after some improvement, it is advised once a month. 

However, we at Clear Skin & Hair Rich Centre perform minimum-invasive mesotherapy with a special mechanical machine called Mesogun which allows a very accurate depth of injection and the amount of the preparatory injected. Mesogun Injector performs dozens of times more punctures than it is possible to inject manually; therefore the procedure is effective and almost painless. Hence, the patient can attend their duties and regular activities immediately after treatment.
