FOCUS ON: HAIR AND SCALP HEALTH


Thinning hair, weak hair, exposed scalp areas or excessive hair loss can be a concern for many people. There is a perceived social stigma attached to baldness which can lead to a drop in confidence and low self-esteem in both men and women. It is believed that as many as 1 in 3 women suffer from thinning hair during their lives and up to 70% of women over 70 experience a hereditary form of hair loss. The causes or hair loss are numerous and can be linked to genetic tendencies, hormonal changes, a result of a medical condition, severe stress or caused by a deficiency in your diet such as a lack of iron or B12 or an imbalance of thyroid hormones etc.

There are a number of treatments on the marketplace which claim to help to restore lost hair and improve the condition of the hair and scalp. One such treatment is Mesotherapy; so what's it all about and can it help you?

mesotherapy

ˌmɛsə(ʊ)ˈθɛrəpi,ˌmɛzə(ʊ)ˈθɛrəpi,ˌmiːsə(ʊ)ˈθɛrəpi,ˌmiːzə(ʊ)ˈθɛrəpi/

noun

(in cosmetic surgery) a procedure in which multiple tiny injections of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, etc. are delivered into the mesodermal layer of tissue under the skin, to promote skin and hair rejuvenation and the loss of fat or cellulite. It can help to reverse the problem of a weakened scalp and damaged hair tissues by healing the tissues and scalp to encourage new, healthy hair growth over a period of time.

Mesotherapy for the scalp works in the same way as it does for the face and body; a rich cocktail of minerals, amino acids, vitamins and enzymes are injected into the scalp at the point where the tissues of skin are found.

Blood circulation is increased in the scalp, which helps to prevent further hair breakage and new hair follicles are stimulated to grow with the injection of essential nutrients. One of the benefits of this treatment is that there is minimal downtime and you can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. How each individual responds to the treatment will vary greatly as will the length of the session and the number of sessions needed.


Because there might be a more serious underlying cause of hair loss, a full consultation should be undertaken with a qualified medical practitioner; they will be able to advise you whether Mesotherapy is the right treatment for you and what the expected outcome would be for you.
