What is Hair Mesotherapy Treatment?

Mesotherapy is a new cosmetic treatment that is neither surgical nor pharmaceutical and is used to treat many issues. Typically, mesotherapy is a mixture of plant extracts, amino acids, hyaluronic acids, vitamins, minerals, nucleic acids, and co-enzymes. The doctor decides what the patient needs and makes a mixture accordingly. Then, all these substances are injected into the treatment area with fine needles.

Mesotherapy is mainly known for improving the skin, such as skin rejuvenation, treating acne scars, and boosting collagen and elastin. However, it is a fact that mesotherapy is also significantly beneficial for hair. Although a hair transplant operation is the best solution for hair loss, some people may want to avoid surgery. For those people, mesotherapy can be an excellent option to boost natural hair growth.

Hair Mesotherapy Advantages

  • Pain-Free Hair Treatment Procedure

Mesotherapy being pain-free is what encourages people the most to have the treatment. It is pain-free before and after applying hair mesotherapy treatment. Before starting the mesotherapy injections, the doctor applies local anesthesia to numb the area. Therefore, during injection, the patient will not feel any pain. In addition, mesotherapy injections are injected with very fine needles that penetrate the middle layer of the skin. Thus, during the recovery time, the patient will not feel any pain as well.

  • Stimulate Hair Growth

The injections of vitamins and minerals improve hair growth by nourishing the hair follicles. Furthermore, they improve the overall appearance of hair since they improve blood circulation. Therefore, the hair will grow faster and healthier.

  • Fast Results

Even though mesotherapy treatment requires several sessions, its effect can be seen within days to weeks after the completion of the treatment. Therefore, mesotherapy injections have more rapid results than other hair loss treatments, such as hair transplantation.

  • Convenient For Both Men And Women

Hair mesotherapy can be applied to men and women with hair loss problems. Furthermore, it can also be applied to people who do not have hair loss but want to support their hair health.
