Chances of result with Mesotherapy are 90-92% as apposed to commonly used Minoxidil (Rogaine) only 50%.
Most forms of hair loss are caused by
- hormone imbalances in and around the hair follicle
- a lack of the right nutrients
- reduced blood circulation
Our mesotherapy treatment tackles exactly those 3 problems which results in a stimulation of natural hair growth and immediate stopping of hair loss.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive technique based on superficial microinjections, just below the epidermis, into the target tissues. The term «meso» is derived from the mesoderm or middle layer of the skin (approx. 1 mm deep). Mesotherapy is a treatment that stimulates the mesoderm, which relieves a wide variety of symptoms and ailments.
The solution injected can contain a wide range of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, nucleic acids and co-enzymes that can be tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
Mesotherapy for hair loss is used with great success in Europe and the United States. The treatment is virtually painless and safe when done professionally. There is no dressing or local anaesthesia required. After the treatment you can just go back to work.
Today we know that Mesotherapy is as effective or more effective than tablets in hair rejuvenation and restoration.
Mesotherapy brings just the right materials to the exact place where it is needed (around the hair follicle) so that
- the hair follicle can grow and survive,
- the excess of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is neutralised and
- the blood circulation is stimulated.
History of Mesotherapy
In 1952 Dr Michel Pistor treated the cobbler for an asthma attack with procaine, in his village of Bray et Lu. This treatment had a limited effect on the underlying disease although the patient, who had been deaf for many years, was able to hear the village bells ring again. He then thought of continuing the procaine treatment but administered next to the ear with positive results. It was from this finding that he continued a never ending quest to treat the disease from as close a point as possible. And according to his saying “a little, not very often, in the right spot”.
In 1964 the French Society of Mesotherapy was founded in Paris, with 16 members and The French Academy of Medicine recognized Mesotherapy as a Specialty of Medicine in 1987.
Popular throughout European countries and South America, Mesotherapy is practiced by approximately 40.000 physicians worldwide.
Mechanism of action of Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy employs both the physical (mechanical) and the chemical stimulation. Small doses of different medications are administered in specific areas depending on the condition being treated. They act like a medicinal bullet that is delivered directly to a target in the body.
Mechanical: The needle is creating micro perforations that induce a healing process. The posttraumatic response of the organism is to produce collagen and elastin – two of the key building blocks of skin. As there is no removal or “real” damage to existing collagen, the new formation of it simply adds to existing levels.
Chemical: The injected active ingredients will stimulate the organism. For instance, if the circulation is poor, a vasodilator is used ( ex. coumarin); if excessive inflammation is present, an anti-inflammatory medication is used (ex. organic silicon). The quality of the product, its composition regarding the indication to treat is of first importance.
Mesotherapy in hair loss
An effective time-release delivery system that can improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation, neutralize excess DHT, stimulate collagen, increase follicle size to stop hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
Active Ingredients Acetyl tetrapeptide-3 & Biochanin A
Acetyl tetrapeptide-3: alternative to Minoxidil
Reduces the inflammation process stops hair loss and stimulates the hair growth (comparative study to minoxidil) modulates DHT, stimulates the extra cellular matrix and anchoring proteins. Acetyl tetrapeptide-3 stimulates tissue remodeling and has a direct effect on the hair follicle. The remodeling signal will increase the size of hair follicle for better hair anchoring and vitality.
Biochanin A is a powerful isoflavone, derived from red clover. It is a natural organic compound in the class of phytochemicals known as flavonoids. Red clover was traditionally used to treat asthma, cancer and inflammatory skin disorders such as eczema & psoriasis. Biochanin A modulates the conversion of testosterone to DHT in androgenic alopecia.
All this results in a stimulation of natural hair growth.

Most forms of hair loss are caused by hormone imbalances in and around the hair follicle, a lack of the right nutrients and reduced blood circulation.
The treatment itself takes between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the extension of the area being treated.
Usually a minimum of 10 sessions is required to stimulate hair growth. We recommend starting with an intensive course of treatments every 2 weeks for the first 2-3 months. The frequency then gradually decreases and the results of hair rejuvenation become evident already after 2-3 months. In order to keep the results maintenance treatments are needed generally once every 2 to 3 months.
