The Scientific Facts About Mesotherapy For Hair Growth

Today, hair loss is a worrying issue for many men and women. One of the less invasive methods that can help people with hair loss is mesotherapy for hair growth. Hair injection is a non-invasive method in which the drug is injected under the epidermal layer of the skin and reaches the damaged tissues. The holes are superficial and take the drug to the mesoderm, which consists of the middle of the skin.

The noteworthy point is that the number of amino acids, minerals, coenzyme, and nucleic acids can be adjusted according to the needs and conditions of the patient. In addition, this treatment is entirely safe and does not require local anesthesia.

What is mesotherapy, and how does it work to help hair growth?

Hair mesotherapy is a method to treat hair loss in women and men. This method works by stimulating the hair growth pattern and reducing hair loss. In this process, proteins, vitamins, and other minerals needed to strengthen hair growth reach a balanced state. Mesotherapy injects nutrients needed by each person’s body with tiny needles under the middle skin of the scalp.

The hair mesotherapy method injects vitamins and substances needed by hair in the scalp for hair growth and nutrition. Medicinal compounds in mesotherapy strengthen the blood circulation in the scalp’s blood vessels and improve nutrition and blood supply to the hair follicles.

  After examining and diagnosing the cause of hair loss, the doctor performs this injection. Needle No. 30 or a mesotherapy device equipped with a needle is used for this. Then he injects vitamins, minerals, finasteride, and minoxidil in the necessary amount at 1 cm intervals under the scalp.

The Scientific Facts About Mesotherapy For Hair Growth

The method of injecting ampoules in the head for hair growth, health and beauty

Mesotherapy for hair is performed by injecting medicinal compounds into the mesoderm layer. Mesoderm is below the epidermis layer and is located between the fat layer and skin tissue. The injection of medicinal compounds is done with the help of an ampoule for mesotherapy and a sterile needle.

Depending on the size of the part of the scalp that needs treatment, the mesotherapy time varies from 10 to 30 minutes. Also, this method’s substances used for treatment include biochanin A and acetyl tetrapeptide 3.

Biocanin A is a potent isoflavone that converts testosterone to DHT in people with androgenetic alopecia. This substance is obtained from red clover and effectively treats other diseases like cancer and inflammatory disorders, such as psoriasis and eczema.

Acetyltetrapeptide 3 stimulates reference proteins and cell network more and causes hair growth, reduces hair loss, reduces inflammation and replaces tissues that affect hair follicles. The final result is the enlargement of the hair follicles, the revitalization of the hair and the production of the main substances that cause the hair’s growth, health and beauty.

The Scientific Facts About Mesotherapy For Hair Growth

Is mesotherapy effective in treating hair loss or bald spots?

Mesotherapy can be used as a preventive or complementary treatment, simultaneously with other hair loss treatment methods. Most of the applicants for mesotherapy are people who use two essential hair loss drugs, Minoxidil and Finasteride tablets, and want to get better results. Of course, hair mesotherapy alone can play an influential role in preventing hair loss and improving hair quality.

In the past, male or female hair loss was called androgenic alopecia; Because scientists thought that androgenic hormones (such as testosterone) were the cause of this form of hair loss. Today, we know that genetic and environmental factors can significantly impact androgenetic alopecia and hormones. For this reason, minoxidil and finasteride drugs, whose primary function is to inhibit androgen hormones, do not work for all people. Only in 40 to 60 percent of the users of these two drugs improvement in hair condition is observed. Now this effect can be in the form of stopping hair loss, increasing hair growth or improving the quality and thickness of hair strands.

A suitable candidate for hair mesotherapy

Apart from androgenic alopecia, there are other types of hair loss that hair mesotherapy can be used to treat and give health, beauty and regrowth to their hair. If you suffer from any of the following types of alopecia, mesotherapy for hair growth is the proper treatment:

  • Telogen effluvium and stress-induced hair loss:

These two disorders usually occur when your body experiences physical or mental stress. Hair mesotherapy is an excellent treatment for these two forms of hair loss. For example, hair loss after pregnancy, which occurs due to telogen effluvium, can be effectively treated with mesotherapy.

  • Hair shaft problems:

If your hair shaft is damaged for some reason, mesotherapy is helpful for you. One of the effects of this method is increasing hair growth and maintaining the health of hair follicles.

  • Alopecia areata:

Mesotherapy is very effective in some people who suffer from alopecia areata. If you have a pattern of hair loss and your condition is not severe, you are a good candidate for hair mesotherapy.

  • Decreased growth rate:

If, for any reason, your hair growth rate has decreased, mesotherapy for hair growth can be an effective treatment.

  2. People who have diabetes, hepatitis, hemophilia, AIDS, etc.
  3. If the cause of hair loss is using certain drugs, such as chemotherapy drugs, you should apply for mesotherapy after the treatment period is over.
  4. Fewer results are seen in men over 40 or those suffering from severe androgenic alopecia.
  5. Women over 60 or people are suffering from severe androgenetic alopecia.
  6. Those men or women who have poor hair due to genetic problems.
  7. Pregnant women

Is it safe to use mesotherapy for hair growth if you have sensitive skin?

The best thing to do is to take an allergy test before mesotherapy in the clinic. This test shows whether you have a sensitivity or allergy to injectable substances. If you are allergic, you cannot do mesotherapy; the doctor will suggest another treatment.

How many mesotherapy treatments should I expect to have before seeing results?

  In general, scientific research has shown that in 90% of people applying for mesotherapy, only four treatment sessions are enough to stop the problem of hair loss.

Of course, remember that after mesotherapy for hair growth, you must take the care mentioned by the specialist seriously so that the result of mesotherapy will last for you. If the treatment sessions go well, you will see your hair grow back after three months, giving you the best result for hair health and beauty.

Can I continue to use mesotherapy treatments longer term to maintain results?

The number of sessions required for mesotherapy for hair growth depends on each person’s hair type and results. However, on average, the sessions are at least four and, at most, 12. After the course, the specialist doctor determines the number of repeat or recharge sessions after these sessions by observing the condition of each person’s hair and scalp.

Care after mesotherapy for hair growth includes:
  • Avoid using minoxidil, hair conditioner, and cosmetics for 24 hours after mesotherapy.
  • Do not take a bath for eight hours after hair mesotherapy. From the third day, you can take a bath with lukewarm water.
  • In case of any bumps on your head, it is better to contact the clinic. This bulge is primarily due to the injection of the solution.
  • Do not take medicines such as aspirin, vitamin E, and ibuprofen for 24 hours after mesotherapy.
  • Do not exercise for two days after mesotherapy. Exercising causes the injected solution to leave the scalp, along with sweating.


Benefits of hair mesotherapy

Mesotherapy for hair growth affects different skin layers, such as the epidermis, middle layer, and connective tissue, as well as the blood circulation system, immune system and neuro-sensory system of the injection area. For many types of alopecia, mesotherapy is an effective and proven hair treatment.

The effects of mesotherapy can be summarized in the following list:

  • Almost painless and without anesthesia
  • Minimal side effects and risks
  • Reasonable cost

  • Before planting: to improve blood supply to the scalp,
  • Immediately after implantation: to treat edema or swelling,
  • Sometime after implantation: for better wound healing and also to strengthen the grafts
