If you want to know more about this option and you want to win the hair-loss battle, you've come to the right place! Keep reading this OneHowTo article to find out how capillary mesotherapy treatment works. You can restore your hair to its thick and luscious former state!
What is the capillary mesotherapy treatment
Capillary mesotherapy treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment consisting of inserting thin microinjections into the scalp. They contain a combination of amino acids, vitamins, trace elements and vasodilators, which halt the progression of baldness and regulate all components that enable hair growth.
It is a technique that is particularly suitable for those who suffer an onset of alopecia but still retain the hair roots. It is excellent for reducing hair loss; boosting growth; providing thickness to fine hair; repairing damaged hair fibres and renewing the hair when it has been ruined as a result of environmental or genetic factors. It provides the scalp with the amino acids needed to increase production of keratin for healthy, thick and lustrous hair.
We recommend going to a specialised hair centre to undergo this treatment. The type, frequency and period of time for these sessions can vary from case to case. This depends largely on the diagnosis and, of course, on the degree of alopecia or hair loss that the person presents.

Sessions and visible results after treatment
As noted above, the number of capillary mesotherapy session required may vary from one patient to another. However, it normally starts with one session a week, which is reduced as the treatment progresses. Eventually, only one treatment will be carried out a month, just to maintain the effects achieve thus far. Each session usually lasts 20 minutes, approximately, and the duration of the total treatment varies between 5 and 12 months.
Capillary mesotherapy is a painless treatment if performed properly; the needles used are small and very thin. If the patient does happen to experience pain, the specialist can use a local anaesthetic. In addition to the microinjections, shampoos, lotions and massages can also be applied to the scalp to enhance the effects of mesotherapy and promote hair growth.
The results are not visible immediately, - a period of between 3 and 5 months is needed to be able to observe the expected changes in the hair. This will also, of course, depend on the individual and the degree of alopecia. The main results that the patient will see after treatment are:
- Reducing hair loss.
- Curbing baldness.
- Stronger and thicker hair.
- Faster hair growth in a completely healthy way.
- More elastic and shiny hair.
Contraindications and side effects of capillary mesotherapy
Before undergoing capillary mesotherapy, you must ensure that this type of treatment is right for you. There are certain cases for which it is not recommended, e.g. in the case of pregnant women, patients who have some type of skin disease or condition in the scalp, diabetes or haemophilia. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about it.
Generally, it is not a technique that usually causes serious side effects in patients. However, it is possible that you may experience some pain or mild inflammation in the area after a session. In this case, the specialist may recommend using anti-inflammatory cream to reduce these symptoms.
Care after capillary mesotherapy
As well as undergoing capillary mesotherapy to notice results, it is important to also keep up hair care after for best results. In addition to this, follow a healthy lifestyle to encourage hair growth and prevent excessive hair loss. Keep the following recommendations in mind in order to keep hair in optimum condition:
- Follow a balanced diet that contains the nutrients essential in maintaining strong and healthy hair. These are mainly iron, antioxidants, folic acid and vitamins A, B, C and E.
- Reduce stress in your daily life - this is one of the causes of excessive hair loss in many people. Sports, yoga or pilates or relaxation techniques are very good for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. You can find more information in this OneHowTo article on how to prevent hair loss from stress.
- Stay well hydrated by drinking plenty of water during the day so the scalp doesn't become dehydrated. This article will show you how to moisturize your scalp using aloe vera.
- Look after your hair with the right products; deeply nourish it with a hair mask once a week; brush it often - avoiding using water that's too hot; limit use of hairdryers and straighteners/tongs; and, finally, cut it at least every 3 months to keep it healthy and in perfect condition.
