Mesotherapy, Minoxidil and Dutasteride
These solutions contain amino acids, vitamins and minerals, as well as other active ingredients to significantly improve hair structure, regulate sebum production, stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss.
These solutions include :
- Glutathione works to combat general oxidative stress and inflammation, preventing folliculitis or scalp itching leading to hair loss.
- Panthenol draws moisture from the environment and the skin to where it's needed most. Panthenol acts as an emollient, smoothing out cracks in rough skin and hair. Panthenol is also good for rough hair, as it can smooth imperfections in the hair shaft.
- Biotin improves the structure of keratin, a basic protein that makes up hair, skin and nails, so it can improve hair health, including volume and coverage on the scalp.
- Organic Silicon, concerning hair, it is suggested that strands with a high silicon content tend to have a lower rate of hair loss and higher luminosity.
A preliminary consultation will help define the mesotherapy best suited to you.
Side effects are few and mainly related to the injection, which may cause redness and/or bruising of short duration. Swelling may also occur for 2-3 days following the injection. You should notify your practitioner if you are likely to be allergic to any of these components.
Initially used to treat high blood pressure, this treatment is now used, in very small doses, to slow hair loss and increase hair growth and density.
Minoxidil is one of the few drugs, along with finasteride and dutasteride, to have proven its efficacy with a high level of scientific evidence.
Side effects are infrequent, and mainly include palpitations, slight risk of hypotension and edema (which usually subsides on discontinuation of treatment). More rarely, and especially in women, hirsutism, which disappears on discontinuation of treatment. Even more rarely, headaches may appear in the first month and disappear after three months.
These side-effects are generally present when the product is taken systemically (orally) or topically (lotion). Localized injection significantly reduces the onset of these symptoms, given the lower concentration.
The latest protocols combine minoxidil with mesotherapy to achieve a greater increase in density and better hair quality with increased thickness.
Like finasteride, dutasteride is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. Initially indicated for men, its indication has been extended to women under certain conditions. This highly effective drug against hair loss and increased density unfortunately has known side effects, mainly of a sexual nature. However, recent studies have shown that these side effects are significantly reduced when the drug is taken topically (lotion). In 2022, a new study demonstrated not only the efficacy of this molecule in increasing density in combination with mesotherapy, but also the reduction in the appearance of side effects, making it one of the methods of choice in the treatment of alopecia and hair loss today.
