Mesotherapy of the scalp
A procedure aimed at enhancing hair growth and improving their condition. During the procedure, medicinal substances are injected into the scalp with the help of injections, which have the proper result, namely, strengthen the hair follicles and ensure the supply of nutrients to them.
Mesotherapy of the scalp is a method of injection cosmetology and aesthetic medicine, aimed primarily at correcting hair growth disorders and improving the scalp. In many cases, this procedure is the main opportunity to correct such serious problems as baldness (alopecia), itching on the head, dandruff, seborrhea, weak and split hair.
The essence of the procedure is the introduction of drugs into the thickness of the skin. Therefore, in the treatment of hair growth problems, intradermal injections are best suited, since they ensure the delivery of the active substance directly to the hair roots. The physiological growth of the skin appendages (hair) is quite slow (0.3-0.4 mm per day), so the results of treatment of alopecia can be noticeable only after a while. But currently, this is the most accurate and effective method of delivering drugs to the hair growth zone.
Mesotherapy of the scalp is also used to solve problems of the skin itself in the upper part of the head, for example, such as seborrhea, psoriasis. The combination of this procedure in combination with other therapeutic measures gives a more pronounced therapeutic effect.
Preparation for the procedure
When collecting the patient's medical history, they find out whether he has an allergy to food products, medicines, about taking any medications at the moment, or using local remedies on the scalp. It is important to remember that some common non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (acetylsalicylic acid, ibuprofen) also belong to the group of disaggregants. Their reception should be stopped a week before the procedure.
The method of mesotherapy on the scalp varies depending on the purpose of treatment. Common is only the implementation of antiseptic measures-treatment of hair and skin with a solution of chlorhexidine. Only in some cases, about an hour before the procedure, an anesthetic gel or a spray with lidocaine is applied to the scalp.
To get the effect, you need a course of mesotherapy – at least 10 sessions. The period between manipulations within one course depends on the severity of baldness and the type of drugs used-usually from one to three weeks.
On the day of mesotherapy and the next day, you can not wash your hair. A simple shower or bath is allowed 8-10 hours after the injection. It is also necessary to protect the hair and scalp from ultraviolet radiation and exposure to high temperatures for at least a few days after the manipulation – visiting baths, saunas, walking in the sun in the summer without a headdress is strictly prohibited. During the course of the procedures, taking any medications – both general and local action-must be agreed with a dermatologist.
Undesirable manifestations after the mesotherapy procedure on the scalp occur very rarely. Basically, this is the formation of small hematomas with accidental injury to the blood vessels of the dermis. The remaining complications – an allergic reaction, infection of the skin, and others-occur due to insufficient questioning and examination of the patient before the manipulation or violations of the rules of asepsis by a dermatocosmetologist.
