Meso Hair Therapy
Androgenic Alopecia and Telogen Effluvium can affect both men and women. Mesotherapy can be used to treat both, with results ranging from good to excellent.
Androgenic Alopecia (AGA) is the commonest form of hair loss affecting both men and women. It affects 50% of men and 20-50% of women by the age of 50.
AGA is caused by progressive, gradual shrinking of normal hair follicles that produce normal (terminal) hairs into miniturized hair follicles that produce fine (vellus) hairs. The terminal to vellus hair ratio, usually 2 to 1 is gradually reduced until it is reversed.
Although AGA is considered by most doctors to be a cosmetic condition, it can significant psychological and physical effects. Loss of hair allows increased ultraviolet light to reach the scalp, in Australia the largest incidence of malignant melanoma is ocurring in men with balding scalps. Women are particularly prone to suffering the psychological effects of hair loss, as a thick head of hair is highly valued as a sign of feminine beauty in almost every culture.
Most men and women will start hairloss by the age of 40 and many as early as 30.
AGA is distinguised by all other types of hairloss by its gradual onset.
Men present with gradual thinning in the temporal areas and women present with thinning of the hair on the crown.
AGA is inherited, however, it is likely that environmental factors also play a role.
As we age our body loses vitamins and minerals needed to grow hair, Mesotherapy replaces what we have lost. The medications in Mesotherapy are meant to increase blood circulation in the scalp which stimulates the hair follicles. The treatment has long lasting neutralizing effects on the DHT hormone giving hair a chance to grow, excess amounts of the DHT hormone is what causes hair loss.
It is mainly recommended for AGA to repair prematurely damaged hair caused by environmental hazards or genetics. It is also seen as a way to eliminate dandruff or a dry scalp, thicken thin hair or revitalize damaged looking hair in women. Meso therapy ensures that the scalp has a proper ratio of all amino acids that are found in healthy hair and increases the production of keratin proteins which is why it is effective in treating many hair and scalp problems.
When used to treat AGA it is proven to be most effective when done over an extended period of time. Usually the Mesotherapy is done as monthly injections for about 8 to 12 weeks. This will help men and women with hair loss, however it does not grow new hair, it stimulates growth of existing hair and enhances the productiveness of hair follicles.
Individual response time to the therapy will vary based on how the individual responds. The therapy does consist of needle injections into the fat layer of the scalp so one may feel a slight pinching or burning sensation during treatment and may have slight bruising afterwards. As with all hair loss products or treatments you must continue with the treatment as long as you want to retain the hair.
Before being used to treat hair loss, Mesotherapy was established in 1952 as a technique used to treat sports trauma, Vascular diseases and to improve circulation. It is now also seen to be a great success in spot fat reduction and the elimination of cellulite. Due to the adverse effects of hair loss it also helps men and women gain more confidence and happiness as hair growth begins and continues.
