Mesotherapy for Hair Growth Overview
Back To Work
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy for Hair Growth is an injection procedure during which special medications or their combinations (cocktails) are introduced. The composition of such complex preparations includes nutrients, trace elements, vitamins, beneficial amino acids and other components necessary for healthy hair.
Injection cocktails are taken for each patient individually, taking into account his problems and help restore hair to its former vitality and health. In this case, the active substances are delivered directly to the hair bulb, which greatly facilitates their absorption and provides an instant reaction of the body to drugs. This approach, unlike external procedures, guarantees the maximum positive effect of treatment.
The technique of injecting therapeutic cocktails was developed more than half a century ago by the French doctor Michel Pistor. Initially, it was a medical procedure aimed at alleviating pain. But in recent decades, injection technology has become extremely popular in the field of cosmetology and is actively used by the beauty industry to maintain healthy body and hair.
Drugs are injected under the scalp with the thinnest needle to a depth of 3-4 mm. At the same time, pain is not very pronounced, therefore, during the procedure, anesthetics try not to apply. On average, a mesotherapy session lasts from 30 to 40 minutes. In order to get a stable positive result, it is recommended to do at least 10 procedures.
It is recommended that you discuss all hair treatments including Mesotherapy at the time of the initial consultation with Dr. Hala Elgmati.

Hair Mesotherapy Types Available at Beyond Med Centre
There are two types of mesotherapy, each of which has characteristic features.
1. Allopathic Mesotherapy
The purpose of the procedures is the treatment of baldness and the restoration of damaged hair structure. Allopathic cocktails include natural and synthesized vitamins, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, lipolytics, antioxidants, and vasodilators. Therapeutic compounds are prepared in the laboratory and the components are selected individually, depending on the urgent problem. Cocktails injected under the skin are designed to affect the scalp and hair structure at the cellular level. They provide a powerful therapeutic effect: restore, nourish, moisturize, remove toxins, strengthen hair roots and stimulate hair follicles to grow.
2. Homeopathic Mesotherapy
This procedure is not so popular; therefore it is used much less often. Its purpose is to normalize the sebaceous glands and restore the appearance of hair. A distinctive feature of this kind of mesotherapy is the minimum concentration of active substances. That is, the procedure is based on homeopathic doses of therapeutic drugs, which eliminates the possible addiction of the body to medicinal substances and provides an especially lasting positive effect. The advantage of this procedure is the absence of side effects and the risk of allergic reactions.
Hair Mesotherapy. Step-by-Step.
The technique of conducting mesotherapy for hair is not particularly difficult. Before the start of the session, a specialist will conduct a test to identify an allergic predisposition. This will help to avoid unpredictable reactions.
Then the scalp is treated with an antiseptic (a solution of medical alcohol or chlorhexidine). With the introduction of the drug under the skin, pain may occur. But injections are performed at a fast pace and using the finest needles, which reduces the discomfort. Beauticians try not to use painkillers, because they are poorly combined with the components of therapeutic cocktails. Of course, a lot depends on the threshold of pain sensitivity, if necessary, the doctor can apply a local anesthetic.
After preliminary preparation, the specialist, using the thinnest needle, introduces a pre-made therapeutic cocktail under the skin. In one session, from 100 to 400 injections are performed.
In this case, drugs can be administered in different ways, the degree of pain of the procedure depends on this.
Manual injections. They are performed with a thin syringe, which is injected under the skin to a shallow depth (from 2 to 4 mm). The procedure takes from 30 to 60 minutes. In this case, the severity of pain is individual and depends on the composition of the drug, the depth and area of administration. So, for example, zones on the back of the head and on the side of the head, next to the auricles, are most sensitive.
Gun for injection. In this case, the procedure takes place in a semi-automatic mode, which significantly reduces its duration. It is necessary that the cosmetologist performing the procedure is experienced and possesses certain skills that facilitate the administration of the drug. This will reduce pain.
Pen (Micro Derma Needle Therapy). This option involves the introduction of a therapeutic cocktail using a special manual device. This procedure is fully automatic, but also the most painful. The manual device is equipped with a roller with thin needles. During the procedure, the doctor runs a roller over the scalp, making many micro-punctures. Then a vitamin cocktail is applied to the skin, which, thanks to pre-made punctures, is absorbed much faster and deeper than when applied to a holistic skin.
The most effective and less painful method is the manual introduction of cocktails. The procedure can cover not only the scalp, but also the cervical region and the upper back, as these zones often cause poor blood supply to the hair follicles with nutrients and oxygen.
During the procedure, the patient should sit comfortably on the couch (in a lying or sitting position). The specialist makes injections at a distance of 1.5-2 cm from each other, immersing the needle to a small depth under the skin. First, zones are chipped along the borders of the scalp, then the drug is administered along the parting line along the entire surface of the head. Before each puncture, the doctor tightens the skin, which minimizes pain. After the procedure, the skin is once again treated with an antiseptic.
