Woman In Procedure Of Mesotherapy For Hair Loss

Mesotherapy for hair loss is often used as a treatment alternative for balding men and women.

This alternative method uses injected solutions into the scalp to encourage new hair to grow.

Salons claim that mesotherapy can help prevent hair loss, enhance hair quality, increase hair length, and promote healthier scalp after treatments.

But how and does it really help?

Let’s find out!


Trying Mesotherapy For Hair Loss: Everything You Need To Know


What Is Mesotherapy For Hair Loss?


Mesotherapy for hair loss is a procedure that involves injecting a solution containing various pharmaceutical ingredients (vitamins, growth factors) directly into the skin, at the hair follicles.

It gives the scalp a boost of essential vitamins and minerals, minimizes DHT (testosterone) build-up in hair follicles, and improves blood flow to the roots.

This procedure has been found to be highly effective in improving the growth of bald spots and promoting new hair growth in the balding areas, making mesotherapy for hair loss one of the most popular techniques today.

Additionally, the small needle piercings stimulate collagen production.

The collagen produced within the dermis layer of the skin is what provides the necessary support so that hair grows healthy and thick.

Is Mesotherapy For Hair Loss Painful?


The primary side effect of mesotherapy for hair loss is the pain and discomfort patients experience.

It is important that a thorough discussion with the doctor be held before beginning treatment, so you know what to expect!

Any medications taken must be discussed so the doctor can make the treatment plan as easy and effective for you as possible.

Also, the treatment is not recommended for people with hormone-dependent conditions such as diabetes or hyperthyroidism, and it is not recommended for women undergoing fertility treatments.

The doctor may also recommend that the patient discontinue using corticosteroids, as they can cause excessive hair loss and promote thinning hair.

Does Mesotherapy For Hair Loss Work?


Currently, there is little scientific research to indicate that this method is effective in eliminating baldness completely.

The primary goal of mesotherapy for hair loss is to restore and improve microcirculation within the scalp, supply vital nutrients, slow the shrinking of old follicles, speed up hair growth, and promote new hair growth after treatments.

Although these goals are met, it has not yet been proven how or why mesotherapy for hair loss really aids in treating alopecia (hair loss).

The treatment seems to be helpful for bald spots, but more studies are needed to confirm the effectiveness of this treatment in more severe types of hair loss.


If you notice that nothing (even mesotherapy) works for your hair loss, you can always opt to try a hair tattoo (SMP).

It’s not too, invasive, not too painful, and has minimal side-effects.

Even though it only produces a fuller effect rather than correcting the hair loss, it’s still worth exploring if you simply want to look nice.


Mesotherapy For Hair Loss Still Can Improve The Condition Of Your Hair


While you may experience some mild discomfort due to the procedure, these symptoms usually go away within a short period of time.

Before going through a procedure like this, it is important to consult a doctor and gain as much information about it as possible.

The doctor will help determine the best course of treatment and define healthy expectations of how much you can achieve with mesotherapy for hair loss.

Your hair loss may be improved, but at this point, there is not enough scientific proof that it can cure it completely.
