Mesotherapy for Hair Loss
It is estimated that 50% of women and 65% of men over the age of 50 suffer from some form of alopecia or baldness. As a result, many forms of treatment and procedures have been developed over the years in order to counter these effects, mesotherapy being one of the most innovative.
Hair loss in regions of our bodies may be caused by several reasons. Among them are: genetics, hormonal imbalances, lack of essential vitamins or nutrients, or adverse response to medication – as is the case with cancer patients.
Mesotherapy consists in injecting a solution made up of amino acids, vitamins, nucleic acids and co-enzymes or other medication into the scalp. The composure will depend on each individual case.
This is a time-saving, convenient and straightforward procedure, which does not require anaesthetics as the patient is not subjected to surgery. There are usually a number of sessions programmed within a period of 2 to 4 weeks, depending on each individual case.
Patients are recommended to follow a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, avoiding alcohol and exposure to sunlight during treatment.
The purpose of mesotherapy is mainly to prevent thinning and baldness, and to favour the regeneration of new, stronger hair. Its application greatly improves the general condition of our hair.
Long-term results will depend on the condition and stage under treatment. In some cases, such as loss of hair due to surgery, results will be visible after a series of sessions. This treatment can be administered every six months or even annually, according to the results obtained and patient’s needs.
