Collagen is a substance that holds the body together and forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure. This important substance works with groups of specific types of protein that named elastins or elastic fibres which lend elasticity and resilience to tissues such as arteries, tendons, lungs, skin and ligaments. Blood and lymphatic circulation improve through mesotherapy affection.
Mesotherapy For Hair
In addition to treating all of these problems, mesotherapy is also used to treat hair loss from alopecia. Mesotherapy for hair, also known as mentoplasty or meso hair, is a treatment that occurs with an injection of vitamin, mineral, antioxidant, and other components that hair needs directly into the scalp. The main goal of this application is to restore and increase microcirculation in your scalp. By providing nutrients and slowing down the shrinking of follicles, we stimulate hair growth.
What Is The Process?
Mesotherapy uses a dual-action process, which includes both chemical stimulation and mechanical stimulation to the affected area. In chemical stimulation, ingredients like buflomedil, minoxidil, finasteride, dutasteride, biotin, vitamins, and organic silicium are injected into the skin’s mesoderm layer. In mechanical stimulation, the doctor creates micro-perforations in the affected area, which induces hair growth. This motion induces collagen and elastin production. Hence, it helps in the formation of new tissues in your hair. During this process, there will be no damage to the existing collagen.
What Are The Side Effects Or Risks?
Mesotherapy is a painless process because of the special application to the scalp during chemical stimulation. People who practice mesotherapy say the risks are minimal if you go to a trained practitioner. Nausea, sensitivity, itching, bruising, scars can be observed on the scalp after the therapy, but mostly any of them is temporary.
How Long Does The Treatment Last?
The duration of the treatment differs from one patient to another. However, a session usually takes approximately up to half an hour, depending upon the size of the area requiring treatment.
Generally, it is necessary to have a minimum of 10 sessions in order to create the most efficient conditions in the scalp. This way, the ultimate stimulation of hair growth can be obtained.
Some patients can experience positive results within the first couple weeks of the treatment. However, it can vary depending upon the level of seriousness of the hair loss and how the skin responds to the treatment.
On the other hand, they can see significant differences within the first 2-3 months. Nevertheless, the ultimate results might be visible within the first 6 months.
