Hair Mesotherapy

The Benefits of Hair Mesotherapy

Turkey has long been a global frontrunner in terms of surgical and non-surgical hair loss solutions. Among such treatments is mesotherapy, a technique based around boosting hair growth by injecting serum into the scalp. Although mesotherapy is originally a French treatment, it has since gained ground in many other countries. Turkey has always been quick to adopt new trends in aesthetic medical treatment, and mesotherapy has been a popular option for at least the last ten to fifteen years. It is one of a range of surgical and non-surgical hair treatment options that SHIFT is proud to provide.

What is hair mesotherapy and how does it work?

Mesotherapy involves injecting a special serum into the patient’s scalp. More precisely, the serum will be injected into the mesoderm or ‘mid-level’ of the skin, hence the treatment’s name. It is thought that these injections provide a dual benefit, in that the mechanical action of the needles will encourage blood flow to the scalp while the chemical action of the agents in the serum will boost hair growth and overall scalp health. It is also thought that the mesotherapy treatment encourages collagen production, which will bring additional benefits to the scalp area.

What are the advantages of mesotherapy?

In general, mesotherapy is thought to create favourable situations for hair growth through improving blood circulation while also reducing inflammation and ‘nourishing’ the hair.

Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of mesotherapy is that it is a minimally invasive treatment with no significant downtime or post-treatment precautions to be followed, and it is not time-consuming to administer, although it does usually require multiple sessions.

Mesotherapy is unlikely to produce significant side effects, which could be considered a positive aspect in comparison with other hair loss treatments such as Finasteride which may cause side effects in some people.

What are the potential drawbacks of mesotherapy?

The main disadvantage of mesotherapy is that, as with other non-surgical hair loss solutions such as PRP treatment, Minoxidil and Finasteride, the results will only last for as long as the treatment is continued. Mesotherapy can go some way towards addressing the symptoms of hair loss, but it is not able to alter the genetic causes of such hair loss. This makes mesotherapy a less permanent solution than a surgical hair transplant. Despite this, mesotherapy continues to be an option for those looking to boost their hair in the short term without committing to surgical treatment.
