Mesotherapy for hair
Mesotherapy is a loose term signifying a procedure which borders between the areas of classical medicine and naturopathy, combining acupuncture with the injection of active ingredients into the skin. When applied for enhancing hair growth, mesotherapy is performed by injecting the appropriate substances into the scalp where they take effect directly into the hair follicles. The active ingredients, such as vitamins, homeopathic substances, hyaluronic acid and other nutrients, are individually selected for each patient. As the ingredients are injected into the scalp with a very fine hollow needle as is done during acupuncture, accordingly the term mesotherapy derives its name from the Greek word mesos, translated as ‘the middle’ and implying harmony and centeredness.
Why does mesotherapy work so well on hair problems?
The question on why mesotherapy treats hair problems so well is best answered by using the example of hair transplantation. Before performing hair transplantation, the number of required grafts is usually determined according to the degree of the patient’s hair loss. Taking this into consideration, it is important to note that the maximum number of grafts is not limited by the donor area, which usually suffices for at least 10 000 grafts. The factor that actually limits the number of grafts is the blood circulation of the scalp. The blood supplies the hair roots with important nutrients and other growth stimulants. As a rule, scalp circulation suffices for 4000-4300 grafts. Mesotherapy is, therefore, a very effective method for providing the hair follicles with the substances that both stimulate hair growth and improve hair quality.
Mesotherapy for hair transplantation
There are cases where mesotherapy is enough to get even difficult hair issues back under control. Furthermore, after hair transplantation, it is crucial for successful regrowth of hair to provide the scalp and the hair follicles with the necessary nutrients. Only by doing so can the hair grow well and develop its natural hair structure. That’s why we always include mesotherapy within the price of hair transplantation in our offering.
