The scalp needle mesotherapy is used to treat baldness. This method involves introducing appropriately selected nutrients into the patient’s skin using special needle (cannula).

What is scalp needle mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a treatment method of various ailments. The course of the procedure involves deep injection of appropriately selected doses of medicinal substances into disease areas. This treatment is used in the alopecia treatment- it allows the patient to improve his/her the quality of hair, inhibit hair loss and stimulate new hair to grow (provided that the skin has active hair follicles in the anagen phase).
Scalp needle mesotherapy involves making numerous punctures where medicines and nutritional substances are injected. The aim of those substances (mainly anti-inflammatory drugs, vitamins and nutrients) is to stimulate hair growth and inhibit hair loss. The set of medicines is always selected individually to meet all the needs of the patient. During procedure a needle and a syringe are used. Micro-traumas are form on the scalp that stimulate the skin to regenerate and rebuild, improving blood circulation and stimulate the hair roots. Punctures are made in places where there are signs of alopecia. The whole procedure takes about 30 minutes.
Is scalp needle mesotherapy painful?
During mesotherapy, the patient experiences slight pain. For injection, a syringe with a thin needle (from 0.5 cm to 1.5 cm) or a medical pistol is used. Such punctures cause little discomfort, because it is impossible to apply completely anaesthetize of the scalp. However, the patients with a low pain threshold often make a decision to use local anaesthesia (spray or anaesthetic ointment) that works during and after the procedure.
