The word baldness is however, generally used to describe male pattern baldness in specific – partial or total lack of hair on the scalp with limited or no hair growth at all. It is characterized by receding hair line, patchy hair loss and thinning crown, and is mainly caused by unhealthy lifestyle practices, hormonal imbalances, aging, hereditary factors, intake of steroids and other severe forms of medication, illnesses, pregnancy in women, hair styling and poor health care practices, psychological and physiological stress and shock, trichotillomania or compulsive hair pulling disorder etc. This chronic hair problem can be treated by medication, clinical treatments, hair replacement and hair restoration. Natural remedies and maintaining a healthy diet help handle the issue better.
What is mesotherapy for hair growth? - Mesotherapy is an alternative treatment that helps to cure baldness in both males and females by reducing hair loss, promoting hair growth and slowing male pattern baldness. It is a process which regulates the proteins, vitamins and other nutrient levels and growth factors in the scalp of the patient suffering from balding. This is done by injecting in the least painful way, nutrient boosters in the scalp with the help of an injection gun to aid in the nourishing and hydrating of the scalp. This also includes initiating cell metabolism, eliminating infections and promoting and accelerating hair growth, improving blood circulation in the scalp and strengthening and reviving the hair follicles to help create dense, voluminous, strong, long and healthy tresses. This is a comparatively faster treatment than its counterparts as it helps to gradually restore hormonal balance and neutralizes the effects of DHT hormone leading to accelerated growth of new hair strands.
Technique behind mesotherapy for hair growth: - Mesotherapy for hair regrowth involves the technique of injecting nutrient rich liquid in the mesoderm of the scalp – the layer under the epidermis which serves as a link between the layer of fats and the tissues of the skin. This is done with the help of a special mesotherapy gun that carries a sterile needle which injects the solution in the scalp. This treatment usually spans over a period of eight sessions, one every week for a duration of half an hour each. One must be patient and composed while taking this treatment as visible results are only observed after the fifth session. The basis of the treatment substance that is injected during the therapy depends on the cause for the hair fall experienced. Since this substance generally contains vitamins, nutrients and other tissue friendly materials, this treatment is considered safe with usually no side effects or allergic reactions. The patients who undergo this treatment experience no or minimal pain and least discomfort making mesotherapy an easy solution for getting rid of the chronic problem of balding. However, people with skin ailments, dermal inflammations, diabetes, haemophilia and pregnancy should not opt for this treatment as it may hamper and deteriorate their health condition. Another hair and scalp problem that can be treated by mesotherapy is dandruff. This alternative should however, only be used in case of severe dandruff problems, only after consulting a dermatologist and determining the cause of the dandruff and then proceeding with the treatment only if advised so by the doctor.
