Originally used in the treatment of lymphatic and vascular diseases, mesotherapy originated in france. Since its original use, doctors have discovered other valuable uses such as the treatment of infectious diseases, the healing of sports injuries, and even cellulite removal. Further, and more relevant to our discussion, mesotherapy has been shown to help fight hair loss.

The specific treatment, for both males and females, involves a series of eight to twelve painless “micro-injections” into the scalp that contain vitamins, DHT blockers, and minerals. An injection usually occurs once per month and helps strengthen existing hair and prevent further hair loss.

It’s important to note that clinics will use different mixtures in their mesotherapy treatments and not all treatments are equal. A patient should know whether he/she is being injected with a simple vitamin and mineral solution or if the clinic has a more sophisticated formula which can include things like minoxidil and finasteride directly to the scalp for more effectiveness.

While mesotherapy is effective for men with male pattern balding and great results can often be seen especially when mixed with traditional medication, one of its most common uses is for women who are experiencing post-birth, pre-menopausal, and post-menopausal hair loss.
