This non-invasive mesotherapy for hair is based on shallow micro-injections. This is done with the help of a special mesotherapy gun that carries a sterile needle that injects the solution in the scalp. They are applied just under the epidermis, into the intentioned tissues. The term «meso» is derived from the mesoderm or middle layer of the skin (approx. 1 mm deep). Mesotherapy is a procedure that stimulates the mesoderm. The solution injected can contain a wide range of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, nucleic acids and co-enzymes that can be custom-made to each patient’s individual needs.

Nowadays specialists know that Mesotherapy is effective and in some cases even more effective than tablets in hair rejuvenation and restoration. Mesotherapy brings just the right materials to the exact place where it is needed (around the hair follicle) so that the hair follicle can grow and survive, the excess of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is neutralized and the blood circulation is stimulated.
The mesotherapy hair procedure
The treatment takes only 10 and 20 minutes depending on the extension of the area being treated.
Usually a minimum of 6 sessions is required to stimulate hair growth. It takes a period of four to six months before you see significant results. We recommend starting with an intensive course of treatments every 2 weeks for the first 2-3 months. The frequency then gradually decreases and the results of hair rejuvenation become evident already after 2-3 months. Over time, the mesotherapy solution will neutralize the DHT hormone, causing hair to grow again.
Mesotherapy can potentially eliminate the need for hair transplant surgery. Chances of result with Mesotherapy are 90-92% as apposed to commonly used Minoxidil (Rogaine) only 50%.
