Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used in Europe and elsewhere to treat hair loss.
Micro Skin Needling or mesotherapy is a treatment in which very short needles are used to micro inject hair rejuvenating substances to stimulate the flow of blood to the hairs root and thereby stimulate hair growth.
In some cases, mesotherapy or micro skin needling is used to stimulate hair growth, but only for certain kinds of hair loss problems. For example, if the follicle is dormant but not dead, skin needling or mesotherapy is highly effective.
Plastic surgeons and dermatologists that specialise in hair transplants recommend that patients undergo mesotherapy or micro skin needling before they commit to the expensive process surgical procedure. The reason for this is that, if hair begins to grow again in the region where the transplant has taken place, the hair pattern can look very unnatural.
In other words, hair transplants are only recommended by surgeons who are certain that the follicle will not grow again. Mesotherapy micro skin needling for hair rejuvenation is one way to find out.
