Hair loss is a common problem that affects both men and women. The reasons for its occurrence can be hormonal, pathological, hereditary, stress, poor diet or other factors. However, there are several ways to deal with it. One of them is autologous hair mesotherapy.
What does this treatment do?
Autologous mesotherapy is a safe and painless procedure against hair loss. It is recommended in cases of androgenetic or diffuse alopecia as it helps in the regeneration of new hair follicles and prevents the expansion of thinning. It does not replace hair transplantation, but in combination it gives excellent results.
Who are the right candidates?
The treatment is equally effective in both sexes. It is recommended in the early stages of hair loss and in cases of alopecia. In people with complete baldness we do it in combination with a hair transplant.
What is the treatment process?
Growth factors found in various elements of the blood have a regenerative effect. Thus, during the treatment process the doctor takes a small amount of the patient’s blood and then isolates it by a centrifugation procedure. Activation is then done by adding calcium ions and the material is injected into the affected areas. The procedure is very short and completely painless.
How does it work against hair loss?
The treatment enhances the metabolism of the hair follicles as it improves the tissue around them. The blood is rich in structural components that contribute to the renewal of cells and the creation of new blood vessels by increasing the circulation of the area.
How many sessions are required?
As with any treatment the number of sessions depends on the size and extent of the problem. However it is important to have consistency in the sessions as their number ranges from 3-8 (1 per month). The results of this method become visible from the very first sessions and the hair thickens in a period of 6-12 months and can last anywhere from years to a lifetime. Each case is different and follows its own program adapted by the specialized dermatologist.
