Hair Today… Gone Tomorrow??? – Mesotherapy

mesotherapyBy Dr. Marie Kimelheim, MD.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive medical procedure involving the injection of small quantities of homeopathic agents, natural extracts, pharmaceuticals and vitamins just beneath the surface of the skin. Mesotherapy  can be used for restoration of thinning hair, to reduce cellulite, promote weight loss, treat aging skin and sagging skin, and to rejuvenate the appearance of hand and neck areas. The results can be amazing!

Why Do We Lose Hair

Every hair on your head is genetically programmed to cycle through 3 stages: growth, rest, and shedding. Most people lose 50 to 150 hairs each day. Most hair re-grows because the hair follicle remains intact. When the shedding significantly exceeds growth, the result is baldness. Most hair loss is hereditary however stress (physical or emotional), diet, pollution, serious illness, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, birth control pills, thyroid dysfunction, excessive doses of vitamin A,  medications and hypertension are also contributing factors. Because balding is such a gradual process people often wait too long to take action. The fact is… The earlier the treatment the better the outcome will likely be.

Mesotherapy and Hair Loss Prevention

For those in the early stages of hair thinning or loss, or if baldness (alopecia) runs in your family, Mesotherapy could be the answer to a fuller head of hair. Mesotherapy for hair consists of a series of virtually painless injections of vitamins, minerals, and DHT blockers directed into the scalp. Both men and women are candidates. Mesotherapy replaces the vitamins and minerals which the body no longer has in sufficient quantities to offset the factors for hair loss as we get older. As well, the medications in Mesotherapy treatments cause an increase in blood flow to the scalp area and stimulate the hair follicles.

Results

Mesotherapy can be a great way to recover the head of hair you once had. You can get even better accelerated results when used in combination with other therapies (Like the hair restoration laser treatments offered at BodySmart Wellness). When compared to hair pieces, transplants etc. it’s easy to see why more and more people are choosing Mesotherapy for hair loss as well as reducing cellulite, promoting weight loss, treating aging skin and sagging skin, and more. If you’d like to find out more about this great alternative to fuller, healthier hair, give us a call and we’ll tell you more.
