Mesotherapy treatment is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment aimed at diminishing problem
areas on the face and body. It is administered via numerous types of FDA approved medicines, vitamins and minerals directly
into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and tissue underneath the skin which results in healthier, smoother and radiant skin.
Mesotherapy is a medical technique innovated in the 1950s by a Frenchman called Dr.Michel Pistor. It was initially used to
treat rheumatism, sports injuries, and for the improvement of blood circulation. Today, Mesotherapy is treated with success
for cosmetic conditions like skin rejuvenation and improvement, hair regrowth and treatment of fatty tissue.
Mesotherapy is also a treatment for baldness for both men and women with hair regrowth. Both men
and women suffer from thinning hair which makes them seek treatment for hair loss. Male pattern baldness is also a serious
concern for a large portion of the population. Today Mesotherapy is more effective than tablets in hair rejuvenation
Though there is no permanent treatment for baldness, mesotherapy has made it easier for patients
by not only reducing hair loss but also promoting new hair growth and in the process effectively delaying the onset of
baldness by a couple of years to decade or more in some cases.
With Mesotherapy, Dr.Senthil Sivaprakasam treats hair loss via injection gun to neutralize the DHT
hormone, which is considered to be the main cause of the onset of baldness. When mesotherapy is combined with proper oral
and topical treatments, it can be effective in preventing the need for Hair Transplant surgery. It is a simple, safe and
painless treatment. Ideally takes between 10 and 30 minute depending on the extent of area to be treated.
Normally, in order to maintain the results, doctor recommends the treatment every 2 weeks for the
first 2-3 months. Then the frequency gradually decreases as the results of hair rejuvenation become evident after 2-3 months.
