f you are suffering from hair loss and are looking for a solution to help stop the loss of hair (hair preservation) and to help regrow the hair that you have lost, mesotherapy is one of the treatment options you can explore.
The word mesotherapy comes from the fact that in this treatment we target the ‘mesoderm’, a middle layer of the skin. Hair follicles develop from the ectoderm and mesoderm so the principle is that injecting the right ingredients in this layer makes them more effective. There is no specific formula of what gets injected in the treatment and there are many variants available. However, at our clinics we use what our specialists have found to be the most effective, which is a mixture of certain peptides and vitamins and in some cases medications like finasteride and minoxidil. The correct ingredients once injected in the right area, deliver nutrients to the hair, improve blood circulation and hence the delivery of growth factors. This in turn helps in the reactivation of dormant hair follicles and thereby is seen as regrowth of hair. It works for both men and women. However, a single session will not provide desired results. You will need multiple sessions.
