What is Hair Mesotherapy Treatment?

mesotherapy for hair loss treatment

By: Dr. Abbas Amoukarami

Mesotherapy results are 90-92% effective, opposed to commonly used Minoxidil/Rogaine alone, because it tackles the 3 main causes of hair loss:

  • hormone imbalances in the hair follicle
  • insufficiency of correct nutrients
  • diminished blood circulation

This is used for hair loss with great success in Europe and the United States. The treatment is virtually painless and safe when done professionally. There is no dressing or local anaesthesia required. You can return to normal activities/work immediately.

It brings the right chemicals to the exact place where it is needed so that:

  • the hair follicle can grow and survive
  • the excess of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is neutralised and
  • the blood circulation is stimulated

*Remember, mesotherapy treatments work best when toxins are eliminated from the diet and you’re following a healthy exercise program.

Mechanism

Mechanical: Needles create micro-perforations, inducing a healing process. The response of the organism is to produce collagen and elastin – two key building blocks of skin. As there is no removal or “real” damage to existing collagen, the new formation of it, adds to existing levels.

Chemical: Injected active ingredients will stimulate the organism. For instance, if the circulation is poor, a vasodilator is used (Coumadin); if excessive inflammation is present, an anti-inflammatory medication is used (Organic Silicon). The quality of the product and its composition regarding the indication to treat is of utmost importance.

Some studies have shown that the naturally-occurring dehydrotestosterone (DHT) hormone is one of the factors causing hair loss. Over time, the mesotherapy solution will neutralize the DHT hormone, causing hair to grow again.

Sessions

A minimum of 10 sessions is required to stimulate hair growth, each session taking ~20 minutes. Treatments are every 2 weeks for the first 2-3 months. The frequency then gradually decreases and the results of hair rejuvenation become evident already after 2-3 months.

In most cases it takes 2-3 months before results become clearly visible.  Some patients however report good results quickly after starting treatment, as soon as a couple of weeks after starting the treatment. It is better to estimate from three to six months for full effect of the treatments.
