Mesotherapy for hair loss
Electroporation and Virtual or Needless Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy for hair loss is a technique that uses shots of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts for a variety of purposes.
Michel Pistor, a doctor in France, developed the technique in 1952. It was originally used to relieve pain. Recently it has gained popularity in the United States.
Today, mesotherapy is used to remove fat in areas like the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms, and face, reduce cellulite, fade wrinkles and lines, tighten loose skin, recontour the body, lighten pigmented skin and treat alopecia, a condition that causes hair loss which is what we will talk about in this article.
The most developed technique uses an electroporation device (AKA virtual needle) or very fine needles (mesopen) to deliver a series of punctures into the skin to stimulate dermal cells. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage and aging.
How Does Mesotherapy Works?
Mesotherapy for Hair Loss Treatment is a non-invasive microneedling/electroporation technique that transdermally delivers nutrients such as vitamins, trace elements, peptides and growth factors directly to the hair follicle to prevent hair loss and hair thinning. The specialized cocktail is an hydrosoluble sterile solution that minimizes hair loss, improves hair quality, rejuvenates hair cells and prompts new hair growth. It can also help with thinning hair, improve blood circulation, restore hair color and balance hormones affecting hair follicles. It is not necessary to have a baldness problem to start hair rejuvenation therapy, we recommend to encourage your clients to have this procedure as a preventive therapy as well.

This product regenerates and activates hair follicles, regenerates the extracellular matrix to strengthen new hair roots, induces angiogenesis, stimulates the growth of vascular endothelium, and extends the life of hair follicles due to its active ingredients:
- IGF 1 (Oligopeptide – 3) Prompts cellular differentiation and the proliferation of dermal fibroblasts, it also raises the levels of collagen and elastin strengthening the hair as much as it stimulates hair follicles to produce more dense and strong hair.
- BFGF (Oligopeptide – 3) Promotes the generation of new epidermal cells and induces the synthesis of collagen and elastin, favors the normal growth of skin, heals and repairs wounds.
- VEGF (Rh – Polypeptide – 9) Stimulates hair growth, induces angiogenesis, and facilitates the nutrition of hair follicles.
- Copper Peptides (Copper tripeptide – 1) Inhibit the 5-alpha reductase enzyme and stimulate the proliferation of the dermal papillae of the follicle, thus, the growth thereof raises the production of the vascular endothelium factor and prolongs the life of hair follicle.
- Caffein Studies of the morphology and regeneration of epidermal cells did find that the association of caffeine with specific Growth Factors (EGF, VEFG) present an enhancement of their properties.
- D-Panthenol Pantothenic Acid participates in the Krebs cycle, corresponding to the metabolism of Caron Hydrates, Lipids, Proteins, and in the synthesis of fatty acids, thus regulating sebaceous secretion and the formation of keratin.

Importance Of A Good Diagnosis Before A Mesotherapy Hair Loss Treatment
Proper evaluation of hair loss is critical to ensure that the most effective hair loss treatment is selected. The following are some common types of hair loss:
Hereditary hair loss: It is the most common form of hair loss, which usually comes on gradually and can be successfully treated in most cases. It mainly includes male and female-pattern hair loss.
TE hair loss (Telogen Effluvium): This is the second most common type of hair loss. TE (temporary and reversible hair loss) often appears as diffuse hair shedding. Any sudden physical, emotional change or shock could cause TE.
Patchy hair loss: also known as alopecia areata (AA), which is an autoimmune disease. It can be quite sudden and often appear as circular or patchy bald spots on the scalp. For some, AA can spread to any part of the body.
Traction hair loss: also known as traction alopecia. This may be caused by wearing pigtails, cornrows, or braids, or using tight hair rollers, tight hat bands, etc. It is curable if there is no permanent damage to the follicles.
Is important that you, as a professional esthetician, make a proper diagnosis of the root of your patient’s problem, to offer the most effective treatment, and make it clear what the expected results will be.
