What is capillary mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a technique that is applied with good results to address hair problems and hair loss in particular. Especially, it is useful in the reactivation of the operating cycle of the hair follicles.
Why is it done?
Hair mesotherapy is used to treat hair problems and hair loss. In particular, it is used to improve the condition of the hair and is ideal for people who suffer the first signs of baldness, who have weakened hair and who see how it loses strength and becomes less abundant.
What does it consist of?
The effectiveness of capillary mesotherapy lies in its capacity for the progressive release of substances and medications, which are injected intradermally (less than 4mm from the surface of the skin) and the medications themselves. In the case of the application for hair pathologies, the mesotherapy used contains micronutrients (amino acids, vitamins and minerals), as well as synthetic growth factors very similar to humans.
The results will depend on the pathology to be treated. Thus, it will always be more effective in acute problems or in initial stages than in chronic or advanced processes. However, a previous diagnosis is important. Thus, capillary mesotherapy can be used as a single treatment or in combination with other solutions. In hair loss, it is usually applied as an adjuvant but in more acute cases it plays a more prominent role, so the previous diagnosis is essential. In initial alopecias capillary mesotherapy can have similar effects to capillary biostimulation (which uses the regenerative properties of platelets), producing a stimulation of the hair follicles that are in the resting phase, causing them to enter the phase of activity or growth and that improve their quality (being stronger and resistant) those that are in active phase.
Mesotherapy has a direct effect on the improvement of capillary status. The long-term results are conditioned by the pathology that is being treated. Thus, in acute post-traumatic cases with intense hair loss it can be treated and easily recovered. When they are chronic pathologies and a satisfactory result has been obtained, semi-annual or annual treatments can be proposed to repeat the treatment. Also, another case where it has proven effective is in cases of patients with micrografting or hair transplantation, where annual sessions may be applied.
Preparation for capillary mesotherapy
Before performing capillary mesotherapy, it is advisable that the patient undergoes a study in a center specialized in hair treatments. Thus, they can study what is the best treatment in each case and see possible contraindications. Among other parameters, possible diseases of the skin or scalp, diabetes, hemophilia or other pathologies will be studied.
Care after the intervention
In general, it is not a technique that causes serious side effects, but it is possible that the patient, after the session, feels some pain or mild inflammation. In this case, an anti-inflammatory cream will be recommended to reduce the symptoms. Likewise, after hair mesotherapy it is advisable to take care of the hair and follow healthy habits of life that continue to favor growth, avoiding excessive hair loss. It is also important that the patient take into account the following recommendations:
- Follow a balanced diet with the essential nutrients to keep hair strong and healthy: iron, antioxidants, folic acid and vitamins A, B, C and E.
- Reduce stress, since it is one of those responsible for excessive hair loss.
- Keep well hydrated, so that the scalp does not become dehydrated either.
- Take care of the hair with suitable products, moisturize it with nourishing masks, brush it well, avoid using too hot water when washing it, limit the use of dryers and irons and cut it every three months.
