Hair loss is something that affects millions of people around the world. It’s one of the cosmetic conditions that causes the most stress to both men and women. Thick, healthy hair is associated with youth and vitality so when your hair starts to thin, it can be quite distressing.
The main treatments that are available on the market for hair loss are finasteride (Propecia) and minoxidil (Rogaine). Whilst these treatments are effective to a certain degree, at Adonia Medical we believe in treating hair loss as a skin condition, since that’s where the problem ultimately lies.
Through the use of Mesotherapy, we’re able to correct the hormonal imbalances around the hair follicles that causes hair loss and provide the follicles with the nutrients they need to grow healthy hair.
At Adonia Medical, we pride ourselves on putting our patients’ needs first. At our state-of-the-art clinic, we offer a wide range of medical and skincare treatments for patients of any age and gender. You can be assured that when you come to us for a Mesotherapy treatment or any other type of treatment, you’ll receive the best care possible.
Mesotherapy for hair loss FAQ
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a treatment that involves injecting microscopic amounts of vitamins, homeopathic agents, minerals and pharmaceuticals into the skin. It is used as a treatment for a wide array of skin conditions at clinics around the world.
How does Mesotherapy help with hair loss?
Mesotherapy for hair loss is very effective since it enables the direct targeting of hair follicles where the hair is thinning. By injecting nutrients that are good for your hair as well as DHT blockers into your scalp, Mesotherapy can regrow hair as well as halting the loss of any further hair. DHT is the primary culprit of hair loss in men and therefore being able to inject DHT blockers directly into the scalp is a very effective means of treating androgenic alopecia (male pattern balding).
Should I keep taking existing hair loss treatments?
Yes. Although Mesotherapy for hair loss can be used as a stand alone treatment, for the best results it’s a good idea to keep taking any existing hair loss products that you’re currently taking.
Is Mesotherapy only used for hair loss?
No. Mesotherapy is used to treat a wide range of skin conditions, including ageing skin, sagging skin and wrinkles. It’s also used as a means to promote weight loss.
Is is painful?
Like any injectable treatment, there may be a small amount of discomfort when the needle is being injectable, although most patients find this to be very mild. If necessary, a topical anaesthetic can be used.
How long does a session last?
This will depend on the extent of thinning and the number of injections needed.
How many sessions are required?
For most patients, it’s recommended that they have at least 10 sessions over a 3 month period. This will yield the best results as far as regrowth is concerned.
