Mesotherapy: How This Procedure Revitalises Your Scalp with Vitamin Injections

If you are looking for a way to improve the health and appearance of your scalp and hair, you may have heard of mesotherapy, a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other substances into the skin.

Mesotherapy is often used to treat various skin conditions, such as wrinkles, cellulite, scars, and pigmentation, but it can also be applied to the scalp to stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss.

How does mesotherapy work for the scalp?

The scalp is a complex organ that consists of multiple layers of skin, blood vessels, nerves, glands, and hair follicles. The hair follicles are responsible for producing hair shafts, which are made of a protein called keratin. The hair follicles also depend on a good blood supply and a balanced hormonal environment to function properly.

However, various factors, such as aging, stress, genetics, hormones, medications, infections, or environmental pollutants, can affect the scalp and hair follicles, leading to hair thinning, hair loss, or baldness. Some of the common causes of hair loss are:

  • Androgenetic alopecia: This is the most common type of hair loss, affecting both men and women. It is caused by a genetic predisposition and the action of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which shrinks the hair follicles and shortens the hair growth cycle.
  • Telogen effluvium: This is a temporary type of hair loss, caused by sudden or severe stress, such as illness, surgery, childbirth, or emotional trauma. It occurs when a large number of hair follicles enter the resting phase (telogen) of the hair cycle, which then fall out after a few months.
  • Alopecia areata: This is an autoimmune condition, in which the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing patchy hair loss on the scalp or other parts of the body. The exact cause of alopecia areata is unknown, but it may be triggered by genetic or environmental factors.

Mesotherapy aims to address these causes of hair loss by delivering a customised blend of nutrients and medications directly into the scalp, using fine needles. The injections are usually given at a depth of 1 to 4 millimeters, depending on the area and the condition being treated. The injections are repeated every few weeks, for a total of 6 to 10 sessions, depending on the individual’s needs and goals.

Benefits of Mesotherapy

  • It stimulates blood circulation and oxygen delivery to the scalp and hair follicles, which promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss.
  • It nourishes and hydrates the scalp and hair follicles, which improves the quality and texture of the hair.
  • It reduces inflammation and infection in the scalp and hair follicles, which can cause hair loss or damage.
  • It balances the hormones and enzymes that affect the scalp and hair follicles, such as DHT, which causes androgenetic alopecia.
  • It repairs and rejuvenates the scalp and hair follicles, which can reverse the effects of aging, stress, or environmental damage.

What are the side effects and risks of mesotherapy for the scalp?

Mesotherapy is generally considered a safe and effective procedure, with minimal downtime and recovery. However, as with any invasive procedure, there are some possible side effects and risks, such as:

  • Pain, swelling, bruising, or bleeding at the injection site, which usually subside within a few days.
  • Allergic reaction or infection, which can occur if the injected substances are not sterile or compatible with the individual’s skin type or medical history.
  • Scarring or pigmentation changes, which can occur if the injections are too deep or too frequent, or if the individual has a history of keloids or hyperpigmentation.
  • Headache, nausea, or dizziness, which can occur due to the medications or the needles used in the procedure.

To minimise these side effects and risks, it is important to consult with a board-certified dermatologist or a qualified skin-care professional before undergoing mesotherapy for the scalp.

They can assess your scalp and hair condition, medical history, and expectations, and recommend the best mesotherapy protocol for you.

They can also advise you on the proper aftercare and maintenance of your scalp and hair, such as using gentle shampoos and conditioners, avoiding harsh chemicals or heat styling, and taking supplements or medications if needed.
