What is Mesotherapy
Although there is a lot of talk about medical therapies such as Mesotherapy, there are not a lot of people, who actually know what these terms actually mean. Mesotherapy, a method first invented in 1948 by Frenchman Michael Pistor, derives its name from mesoderm. Mesoderm is a layer of the human skin, which is comprised mainly of fat cells. The layer sits right beneath the surface of the skin. When the method was first introduced, it was thought that it would help reduce bulges caused due to excess fat and cellulite.
Mesotherapy is actually a non-invasive method, in which microinjections are administered right below the epidermis. The idea behind the therapy is that it will stimulate the mesoderm, which in turn will help alleviate a range of medical conditions. The solution that is injected into the mesoderm is a combination of several ingredients and the combination will vary from person to person, as it will be customised. However, there will be minerals, vitamins, amino and nucleic acids as well as co-enzymes in this medical cocktail.
What can Mesotherapy be used for?
Mesotherapy was originally designed to handle and reduce excess weight, but today it is being used extensively to battle hair loss. Tests and studies have shown that not only can it delay pattern baldness, but also help with the regrowth of hair.
The Treatment Procedure
Mesotherapy is not just chemical or physical – rather it is a combination of both. Areas have to be demarcated on the scalp beforehand and a special blend of vitamins, minerals and amino acids are injected into the mesoderm. The chemical cocktail works like a bullet, which hits the nail on its head.
The actual procedure takes only about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area that needs to be covered. In most cases, at least ten sessions are required and the same has to be spaced out. While the first sessions need to be every two weeks, the subsequent ones can be spaced over two to three months. You will also need to undergo maintenance treatments, to make sure that your hair continues to look great.
