Mesotherapy is a non-surgical treatment in which patients suffering from hair thinning / hair loss or chronic baldness (both men and women) would experience regrowth of hair with a reduction in hair fall. In this therapy, nutrient boosters are injected into the scalp leading to its nourishment and an increment in levels of vitamins, proteins and other micronutrients. Often, medicines like minoxidil are mixed in the mixture of mesotherapy so that the efficacy of the treatment is increased as the drug is directly delivered to the roots.
The treatment needs multiple sittings spanned over a period of about six to eight weeks; each sitting at an interval of about 10 to 14 days. The results are visible after two to three sittings.
This therapy is totally safe in experienced hands.
Stem Cell Therapy:
There are scientific evidences that the follicles need constant stimuli by growth factors and signalling factors from certain type of cells called stem cells, to grow continuously. In thinned out or damaged hairs these growth signals are diminished and the hairs can’t jump start the regenerative or reparative process leading to gradual thinning and baldness (attrition). This is attributed to genetic factors or environmental factors like stress, deranged lifestyle or even trauma to the hair follicles.
Stem cells can be harvested from peripheral blood, bone marrow and more interestingly from fat. The fat (also known as adipose tissue) is rich in mesenchymal tissue and stem cells (ADSC : Adipose Derived Stem Cell) and is an easily available abundant source. The fat after specific type of liposuction technique has to be used for this purpose.
In stem cell therapy autologous stem cells are retrieved from your own fat / peripheral blood. These stem cells mixed with PRP, other growth factors and activators are injected into the scalp which send strong molecular signals to the hair roots (follicles). As the stem cells belong to your own body, this therapy is 100 % natural and safe.
Therapy needs 5 to 8 sessions to be repeated at an interval of 10 to 14 days. The growth starts after two to three sessions and about 30-40% increase in hair density is noticed after 3 to 4 sessions. This result is sustained depending on environmental and genetic factors of each individual.
