Mesotherapy For Hair

Hind M Almohanna, Marina Perper, Antonella Tosti
Alopecia is often a cause of great concern to patients for cosmetic and psychologic reasons. The aim of treating non-scarring alopecias is to reduce hair loss and, to some extent, enhance hair regrowth. However, therapies for scarring alopecias are limited and aiming to halt disease progression. Nonetheless, available modalities of treatment come with numerous side effects. Areas covered: Many new treatments for non-scarring alopecias have been introduced in recent years. This review summarizes the safety concerns when using novel therapeutic modalities such as JAK inhibitors, hair transplantation, mesotherapy, oral minoxidil, platelet-rich plasma, microneedling, and 5α-reductase inhibitors for treating hair loss...

BACKGROUND: The side effects of mesotherapy for treatment of various forms of alopecia are often underreported, while scientific data for its efficacy are severely lacking. OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the late onset side effects of mesotherapy for alopecia. METHODS: Three patients with androgenetic alopecia showed hair loss after previously uneventful mesotherapy sessions up to 1 year. RESULTS: Clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathological findings suggested an inflammatory scaring process at sites of mesotherapy injections...

Mesotherapy is one of the options for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. Testing 24 women with androgenetic alopecia has demonstrated a positive effect of mesotherapy on the hair growth, hair thickness, with only insignificant increase of hair density. It is known that androgenetic alopecia represents a localized aging of hair follicles. We therefore decided to examine the different effects of mesotherapy on hair density in younger and in elderly women. In younger women mesotherapy significantly increased hair density compared with older women...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The authors will review the current literature on efficacy and safety of 5-alpha reductase inhibitors (5αRIs) for androgenetic alopecia (AGA). RECENT FINDINGS: The 5αRI finasteride and dutasteride are effective in treating AGA and promoting hair regrowth. 5αRI can be given orally, topically and more recently through mesotherapy. However, there has been an increasing concern about permanent sexual adverse events such as impotence and infertility...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is frustrating for both patients and doctors. Mesotherapy is a novel treatment for hair fall and its efficacy in FPHL has not been evaluated. OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of the efficacy and safety of mesotherapy using dutasteride-containing preparation in treatment of FPHL. METHODS: This study included 126 female patients with FPHL. They were classified into two groups; group I (86 patients) injected with dutasteride-containing preparation and group II (40 control patients) injected with saline...

Mesotherapy has recently become an advertised method for the treatment of different types of alopecia despite the lack of any data regarding its efficacy and possible side effects. The substances injected into the scalp include "cocktails" of natural plant extracts, homoeopathic agents, vitamins, vasodilators, and drugs that may stimulate hair growth, such as finasteride and minoxidil. We report two cases of patchy alopecia that developed after mesotherapy for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia. In the first patient, alopecia developed after injections of the heparinoid vasodilator mesoglycan; the 3-month follow-up examination revealed a small residual area of cicatricial alopecia...

Over the past several years, there has been a growing interest in the treatment method termed mesotherapy. Marketed for nonsurgical fat melting, skin rejuvenation, and hair regrowth, this technique has become increasingly popular and, in the public's view, it is considered to be a relatively benign intervention method. Mesotherapy was introduced over 50 years ago by M. Pistor, a French physician who utilized this technique initially as a novel analgesic therapeutic method for a variety of rheumatologic disorders...
