Mesotherapy treatments are used to treat various conditions. In addition to being very effective in treating hair loss, they are widely used in beauty treatments.
For a long time, and especially in recent years, people all over the world have been working tirelessly to try to find the best method to recover lost hair.

During a hair mesotherapy session, the skin must be clean and dry and, although it is not an invasive or painful technique, in some cases an anaesthetic gel may be applied to numb the area and minimise discomfort from the puncture.
The doctor begins by injecting the areas of alopecia or where the patient wishes to stimulate hair growth. The injections are quick, multiple, with very small and thin needles, shallow and with a distance of about 2 centimetres between each one. The number of injections depends on the condition of the patient’s scalp and hair.
The duration of the sessions is between 15 and 30 minutes. The number of sessions and their frequency depend on the specific case. The results will start to show after the fourth session.
After the mesotherapy session, it is not advisable to go to moist places. In this sense, saunas, spas, swimming pools, etc. should be avoided.

However, like any procedure, hair mesotherapy also has some disadvantages. These include:
Among other things, like other non-surgical solutions for hair loss, the main drawback of hair mesotherapy is that the results will only last if the treatment is continued over time. Mesotherapy can help with the symptoms of hair loss, but it cannot change the genetic causes, making it a less permanent solution than surgical hair transplants. However, mesotherapy remains a valid choice and option for those who want to increase their hair in a short period of time without surgical treatment.
