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.
The active ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins (A, B, C, E, and K), minerals and DHT blockers are injected into the layer of fat under the skin in order to stimulate hair growth, and possibly reverse hair loss. Proponents of mesotherapy believe that 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.
The mesotherapy for hair loss is almost pain free. However, some patients feel slight discomfort during the procedure. If this occurs, a topical numbing cream is sometimes used to reduce the pain. Redness and slight swelling may also appear after treatment.
Patients, who have taken blood-thinning medication such as aspirin before the procedure, often have small bruises. Nevertheless, these side effects are temporary and should subside within a few days.
Some bruising may occur after the session which disappears soon afterwards. Mild redness may also appear which goes away after a few hours. Do not expose the skin to the sun and use a good sunscreen.
