Mesotherapy is a treatment for various skin diseases, which involves injecting small doses of treatment substances directly into target areas. Mesotherapy allows reversal or hindering of many unfavourable changes.
Mesotherapy involves superficial injections of the scalp with substances which stimulate growth and prevent hair from falling out (mainly anti-inflammatory medicines, vitamins and nutritive substances). The medicines are selected on an individual basis, to meet the patient’s needs.
Scalp mesotherapy is recommended in particular to persons who suffer from losing hair and alopecia. Excessive hair loss is frequently a problem of both men and women. Ladies recognise the first signs of baldness in themselves sooner and sooner than men undertake struggle with this problem. Treatment efficacy in case of women is satisfactory, but it sometimes takes as long as several months to see satisfactory results.
Scalp mesotherapy may also be performed as preventive treatment.
Is this a painful treatment?
Injections are made using a syringe with a very thin needle, at the spacing of 0.5-1.5 cm. After the treatment, there remain marks on the skin in the form of spots or a grid – depending on the technique of the treatment. The marks disappear within a time dependent on the administered medicine – from 6 to 72 hours.
The injections are not very painful. If the patient has a low pain sensitivity threshold, anaesthetisation with a special cream may be applied. Massage is performed after the treatment, which allows even distribution of the ingredients injected into the skin. The medicines remain active for even a month after the treatment.
Scalp mesotherapy takes approximately 30 minutes. As a result, it hinders falling out of hair and lets the patient regain significant re-growth of the hair.
