Mesotherapy is a dermatological treatment that has recently started being used to fight hair loss.
But what is mesotherapy?
The mesotherapy technique uses fine needles to inject a variety of treatments into the middle layer, or mesoderm, of the skin.
Mesotherapy is typically used to treat the face, however, it can also be used on the scalp.
So does mesotherapy actually improve hair loss in both men and women?
One recent case study of an alopecia patient may offer some insight into how effective mesotherapy might be.
The authors of the study discussed a patient who had only shown little improvement in hair growth since starting topical minoxidil and oral finasteride two years previously.
The patient was then given 20 sessions of mesotherapy, with the injections containing minoxidil and finasteride.
The patient was then observed to have significant hair growth, with improved hair density and thickness.
The study also reported that the patient had no side effects from the mesotherapy treatment.
While this is only one case study, and clinical trials are needed to establish the exact effect of mesotherapy on hair growth, it does indicate that it may be a promising hair loss treatment.
Another study also found that mesotherapy demonstrated similar results on the hair of men with alopecia as minoxidil, a popular hair growth treatment.
In fact, mesotherapy was actually able to increase hair shaft thickness significantly more than minoxidil was.
But are there any side effects of mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy does involve needles piercing the skin and as such, it is important to ensure that your practitioner is properly trained.
Possible side effects of mesotherapy can include skin sensitivity, swelling, itching, rash, scarring, redness, and pain.
If done correctly, mesotherapy should be non-invasive, with little to no downtime required after the treatment.
However, one of the downsides of it is the price point, as a single mesotherapy session can cost hundreds of dollars.
Mesotherapy hair loss treatments would require regular treatments to keep up any results, which could lead to a very expensive routine.
Mesotherapy certainly holds a lot of intrigue as a possible new hair loss treatment.
However, more research is needed to determine just how mesotherapy affects hair growth.
