Hair loss is generally caused by hormone imbalances in and around the hair follicle, reduced blood circulation and a shortage of essential nutrients. It can also be brought on by stress and illness.
Mesotherapy involves injecting a cocktail of naturally-occurring nutrients, including hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, into the scalp to nourish the root of the hair, increase blood flow and trigger regrowth. As a result the hair will become thicker, stronger and fuller.
At SkinMedico we administer the treatment using an automated mesogun. This ensures that each injection penetrates the skin at the same depth (1-2 mm) and delivers the same amount of product. It performs at a rate of 300 injections a minute, making it much less painless than hundreds of manual injections.
Treatment normally takes between 30-45 minutes and we usually recommend a course of ten sessions. The first six sessions delivered on a weekly basis, then the remaining four sessions delivered fortnightly. After this initial protocol, we recommend to continue with the maintenance protocol. These maintenance sessions can be monthly or bimonthly sessions depending on the severity of the hair loss.
Mesotherapy has proven to be effective in overcoming hair loss and thinning hair for both men and women. It is not suitable for male or female pattern baldness where the follicles have already died.
The treatment can also be used to rejuvenate the skin on the face, neck, hands and décolletage and also for a variety of conditions, including cellulite and acne.
It takes approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the severity of the hair loss.
You will feel a mild pricking sensation but, in our experience, patients experience much less discomfort with the mesogun, compared to manual injections. Where there is discomfort, we can apply a topical anaesthetic.
There may be some blood spots on the scalp post treatment but these will disappear when you wash your hair.
This will depend on the state of your hair but we normally recommend up to ten treatments to achieve the best results.
You can normally expect to see the results after 3 to 4 sessions. The treatment has 3 stages.
- Initially there is a reduction of the amount of hair loss. (2-3 sessions)
- Then you notice a thickening of the hair. (4-6 sessions)
- Finally new hair starts to grow. (7-8 sessions)
At SkinMedico, we offer you a full medical assessment prior to your first treatment. We will advise you on an individualised plan of treatment to suit your needs. This process gives you a great opportunity to ask all the questions that you might have and discuss the treatment plan.
