Both men and women suffer from thinning hair and hair loss thus making them seek treatment for hair loss. Male pattern baldness is also a serious concern for a large portion of the population. Each of these conditions falls under the medical term “alopecia.”
Some studies have shown that the naturally-occurring dihydrotestosterone (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.
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical procedure currently being used to combat hair loss and promote hair growth. Already widely used by physicians and dermatologists to decrease the look of cellulite and smooth the skin, mesotherapy has most recently been adapted to treat alopecia or hair loss. A mixture of vitamins, minerals and/or DHT blockers is injected into the layer of fat under the skin in order to stimulate hair growth, and possibly reverse hair loss These injections will increase blood circulation to the weakened or dormant hair follicles, and replace the vitamins and minerals that we lose with age, thus curbing hair loss and encouraging new hair growth.
Cocktails for hair loss include a combination of vitamins, minerals, medication, natural extracts and/or DHT blockers, each believed to help encourage hair growth in patients. The injections are very shallow, about 2-3 mm, beneath the skin’s surface. Each individual session lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes and recovery time is minimal. The initial series of injections may last anywhere from a few weeks to several months before the maintenance stage is finally achieved. As with all alopecia treatments, any benefits or effects or mesotherapy will be noticeable only as long as the treatments are continued.
