Scalp Mesotherapy is a non-invasive hair restoration treatment that utilises the technique of mesotherapy to deliver active ingredients directly into the scalp. Mesotherapy involves injecting small amounts of specially formulated solutions, which contain vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, among other things, into the middle layer (mesoderm) of the skin.
The process stimulates blood flow to the area and promotes hair growth by providing essential nutrients to hair follicles. Our Scalp Mesotherapy combines a type of prescription medication that blocks an enzyme responsible for converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which has been associated with male pattern baldness. By inhibiting DHT production through mesotherapy sessions, this prescription mesotherapy can help prevent further hair loss while promoting new growth in areas where thinning or receding has already occurred.
This innovative method offers impressive results without any invasive techniques or downtime and can be an effective alternative for those who want to avoid more drastic measures like surgical interventions or harsh topical treatments.
The application through micro-injections, commonly referred to as infiltration of antiandrogens or mesotherapy, directly affects the scalp. It has a local anaesthetic effect to make the procedure virtually painless and fast - only around thirty minutes. The patient doesn't need to worry about prior or post-care in our hair loss clinic, as it is immediate and leaves no visible marks. Consequently, they can return to their everyday activities straight away.
A benefit of scalp mesotherapy is that it can be used alone (single treatment) to avoid taking oral medication or topical products, or it can be combined with other oral therapies and topical products to achieve the best results.
Scalp Mesotherapy treatment can be done every 3-6 months, depending on the type of patient and other therapies they are receiving. Normally three to four sessions a year will do to increase hair production. In certain cases with concurrent oral treatment, it may be beneficial to have some scalp mesotherapy at the beginning in order to obtain quicker results. Your doctor will best inform you about what your situation calls for.
It is possible for microinjections to cause some discomfort, but this can be minimized by applying anaesthesia before the procedure begins. The treated area may be slightly sensitive in the following days, but painkillers are usually not needed. The procedure has a local effect and systemic absorption is negligible, so it does not cause systemic side effects.
We only offer our patients the very best service to ensure the highest quality results, which is why all of our procedures and treatments are performed by our team of highly trained hair restoration doctors.
Our Hair Restoration doctors have a great deal of experience and specialised knowledge in hair loss conditions and hair restoration treatments. They know exactly where the product needs to be administered, how to ensure the correct placement of the injection as well as who is suitable for the treatment.
Because hair restoration injections are becoming a more popular treatment option, doctors or even nurses, who specialise in other forms of medicine are starting to implement them into their practice. A doctor whose specialties are in internal medicine or dermatology may have some training, but not specialised knowledge or experience in hair restoration.
