Mesotherapy is a method initially discovered by Michel Pistor in 1952 which consists of painlessly administering micro-injections into the skin in order to reach the desired therapeutic outcome. Certain hair loss causes can be produced by a poor blood circulation in the scalp, a deficiency of essential nutrients or hormonal imbalances, like an excess fabrication of the hair loss androgen DHT.
Hair mesotherapy can be administered to ameliorate these causes, assisting in the reduction of hair loss and the stimulation of hair growth. Preferably, hair mesotherapy can count as a safer, more cost effective and less invasive treatment to other hair transplant procedures in Turkey. The advantages of such operations are that the transplanted follicular units are the patient’s own hair, there is no possibility of rejection and the results are permanent, life-lasting, with an entirely natural look.
Main Ingredients Utilized in Hair Mesotherapy in Turkey
The active ingredients used in hair mesotherapy in our Turkey hair transplant clinic are Biochanin A and Acetyl tetrapeptide-3. Biochanin A is a compound that modulates testosterone-to-DHT conversion in patients with androgenetic alopecia (male or female baldness). It organically derives from red clover and it is used for numerous conditions. Acetyl tetrapeptide-3 encourages:
• anchoring proteins and extra cellular matrix;
• encouraging hair growth;
• slowing hair loss;
• reducing inflammation;
• stimulating tissue remodeling which has a direct effect on the hair follicles.
As a result, the hair follicles are larger and more vital and they present increased hair anchoring characteristics.
Success of Hair Mesotherapy in Turkey
Used as a hair loss treatment, if applied in optimal conditions, the results of mesotherapy in Turkey are permanent, with follow-ups and a correct dietary and exercise program that are recommended in order to maximize its effects. Usually, most patients are required to undergo two or three sessions for noticeable results, with some of the cases registering important improvements in their hair after only one session. However, if the lack of hair is more severe, patients might be required to undergo as many as five sessions, scheduled throughout a four to six months period, to obtain visible outcomes.
The costs of the hair mesotherapy depend on the country where it is being provided, the medical center where it is performed, the number of micro-injections and the needed sessions. The side-effects of this type of therapy are extremely rare, the most common one being bruising or soreness in the scalp area, which generally heal in maximum one week’s time.
