When factors such as stress, work, intense rhythm, insomnia, irregular diet are taken into account, the hair is not fed enough and loses its strength. It acquires a dull and weak appearance. Capillary Mesotherapy is an effective option in the restoration stage of weakened hair.
Our hair needs a lot of vitamins during the day to maintain its vitality, which can also be seen in the content of hair care products or shampoos used. Depending on the purpose of the applied product, these vitamins can be in the direction of revitalizing hair follicles, giving shine and preventing falls.
Capillary Mesotherapy with its simplest explanation; It is a mixture of all the vitamins that the hair needs. With the minerals and vitamins it contains, many hair problems such as hair loss, dullness and weak hair structure can be eliminated at the same time.
What is the content of hair mesotherapy?
The word mesotherapy is a treatment method that targets the middle layer of the skin, formed by the combination of the words meso (middle) and therapy (therapy). First, it was implemented by Dr.Michel Pistor in 1952 in France. It is not a special treatment for hair.
It is actively used for many aesthetic touches, such as cellulite treatment, facial rejuvenation and local slimming. By having different areas of application, it does not have a single content. It is fit for purpose for what it is used for.
In capillary mesotherapy, mesotherapies rich in vitamins that the hair needs are used. In general, it contains vitamins such as A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, zinc, biotin and amino acids.
How is hair mesotherapy applied?
Although there are many forms of application, planning must be done according to the current situation of the person.
Among several types of application stand out;
- Application together with infusion machine during hair transplant,
- After hair transplant, it is applied with steam infusion.
- Application with the help of dropper and dermaroller (roller) after washing,
- Injection method with the help of 2-4 mm tips in monthly periods,
The follicles extracted from the donor area during the hair transplant continue to lose energy as they cannot feed during the time they are outdoors. It is the application method that is used especially in those where the FUE time (extraction) is prolonged, so that the follicles do not lose their existing energy, continue to feed and can be transferred with quality after extracting them from the donor area.
The graft is applied with the help of devices called vapor infusion. The extracted hair follicles are placed in these devices and continue to be fed during their stay in the open air with steam mesotherapy. In this way, the quality of the hair follicles is preserved. This method of application, which directly affects the result of the operation, has been actively used recently.
In order to keep the nutritional quality at the high level after hair transplant, the operation performed with the steam infusion machine can continue for the first 10 days. In this application, evaporated mesotherapy is infused into the implanted area. The process is completed in 20 minutes.
It is applied in the first 10 days, which is the phase of attachment of the hair to the tissue. The objective is to increase the nutritional quality, as in other forms of administration. In addition, the dry parts become moist. It can be done after daily washing for the most effective result. It is not necessary to apply 10 days later, because the union of the tissue will have been completed.
The application of mesotherapy, which continues in the form of an infusion until day 10, begins to be applied with the help of a dropper from day 10. Mesotherapy in liquid form is applied to the grafted area, previously cleaned by means of massage with the fingertips.
Dermaroller can be used after massage to speed up the transition to tissue and be more effective. The point to consider in the use of Dermaroller is the need for a light application. From time to time, people increase the pressure and duration of the dermaroller application with the idea that it will be better.
This increase does not benefit, but on the contrary, harms. Because a prolonged application of dermaroller will irritate the tissue, indirectly impairing the success of the operation. After a few minutes of massage with the fingertips, a one-minute dermaroller application will suffice.
The monthly application method is planned with the aim of increasing the nutritional quality and tissue quality of the hair follicles when necessary. It can be done with the aim of increasing the nutritional quality in the following months, or it can be applied independently of the hair transplant operation.
It is also frequently used to restore the old strength of the hair, worn out by the intense rhythm of work, excessive stress and the use of cosmetics. A short time such as 10 minutes is enough for this process. With the help of minimized 2-4 mm needles, mesotherapy, rich in vitamins that hair needs, is injected under the scalp.
Thanks to the special fine needles used during the injection, the person does not feel any uncomfortable pain. After the application, the person can easily continue with their daily life. It is not recommended to wash your hair on the day of the procedure.
The next day, normal washing can be continued. Although there are different periods of application, according to research, it gives the most effective results when it is done monthly. An average of 6-8 sessions, once a month, will suffice.
How often is hair mesotherapy applied? How long does it last?
Although it varies according to the application method;
- If hair mesotherapy is applied with an infusion device, the process continues until the hair transplant operation is finished. The roots extracted from the donor area continue to be fed with mesotherapy steam inside the infusion machine until they are transferred. The objective of this procedure is to maximize the result of the hair transplant operation by preserving and further increasing the quality of the follicles extracted from the donor area.
- The hair mesotherapy applied after the hair transplant is completed in just 20 minutes. The number of sessions varies depending on the planning of the hair transplant operation. The planning is done by your doctor.
- If capillar mesotherapy is performed with a dropper and dermaroller, 5-10 minutes are needed after washing. During this period, mesotherapy is applied with the help of a dropper and massaged with the fingertips. Subsequently, micro channels are opened with a dermaroller and the penetration of mesotherapy into the tissue is accelerated.
- If capillary mesotherapy is performed by injection, the ideal is 6-8 sessions, once a month. The number of sessions can be increased as needed. The application takes as little as 10 minutes to complete.
When is the effect of hair mesotherapy seen?
Although it varies from person to person and the method of application and whether it is applied regardless of the hair transplant operation, the effect begins to be seen after a few months. The purpose of the applications before and after hair transplant is to increase the success of the operation while preserving the quality of the extracted follicles.
