Mesotherapy is one of the newer treatment options for excessive hair loss and baldness. It is suitable for both men and women. Mesotherapy can prevent further hair loss in male pattern baldness to a certain extent. Mesotherapy involves injection of nutrient serum into the scalp to stimulate the hair follicle growth. Mesotherapy increases the level of vitamins and nutrients in the scalp of the patient and prevents male pattern baldness by reducing hair loss and promoting hair growth.
Results of mesotherapy start becoming visible by 4-5 sessions and a total of 8 sessions of mesotherapy are recommended. The serum for injection is selected based on the cause for hair loss in that particular patient. There is no need of drawing of blood from the patient and it gives minimal pain and discomfort to the patient. The treatment is considered to be safe and has no side effects.
Patients are advised to follow a healthy diet, avoiding junk foods and toxins to get maximum benefit of the therapy. Following a fitness regime and regular exercise can also be beneficial.
Mesotherapy should not be offered to patients with diabetes, haemophilia, dermal inflations, other skin ailments and pregnant women.
