Mechanism of action of Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy employs both the physical (mechanical) and chemical stimulation. Small doses of different medications are administered in specific areas depending on the condition being treated. They act like a medicinal bullet that is delivered directly to a target area of the body.
Mechanical: The needle is creating micro perforations that induce a healing process. The post-traumatic response of the organism is to produce collagen and elastin – two of the key building blocks of skin. As there is no removal or “real” damage to existing collagen, the new formation of it simply adds to existing levels.
Chemical: The injected active ingredients will stimulate the organism. For instance, if the circulation is poor, a vasodilator is used; if excessive inflammation is present, an anti-inflammatory medication is used (e.g. organic silicon). The quality of the product and its composition relating to the desire result is of the highest importance.
The treatment itself takes between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the extension of the area being treated.
Usually a minimum of 10 sessions is required to stimulate hair growth. 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. In order to keep the results, maintenance treatments are needed generally once every 6 months. Cost per treatment is £150, save £300 when you book course of 10.
Mesotherapy can potentially eliminate the need for hair transplant surgery. Whilst this treatment is effective in stimulating and reactivating hair follicles, the follicle must be in a dormant state and not dead. Mesotherapy treatments work best when toxins are eliminated from the diet and you're following a healthy exercise program.
Mesotherapy in hair loss
Mesotherapy is a system that can improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation, neutralize excess DHT, stimulate collagen, increase follicle size to stop hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
It can reduce the inflammation process stopping hair loss and stimulates the hair growth (comparative study to minoxidil). It modulates DHT, stimulates the extra cellular matrix and anchoring proteins. Acetyl tetrapeptide-3 stimulates tissue remodeling and has a direct effect on the hair follicle. The remodeling signal will increase the size of hair follicle for better hair anchoring and vitality.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive technique based on superficial microinjections just below the epidermis, into the target tissues. The term 'meso' is derived from the mesoderm or middle layer of the skin (approx. 1 mm deep). Mesotherapy is a treatment that stimulates the mesoderm, which relieves a wide variety of symptoms and ailments.
The solution injected can contain a wide range of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, nucleic acids and co-enzymes that can be tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
Mesotherapy for hair loss is used with great success in Europe and the United States. The treatment is virtually painless and safe. There is no dressing or local anaesthesia required. After the treatment you can just go back to work.
Today we know that Mesotherapy is as effective or 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;
