Mesotherapy of the scalp is a procedure that involves the injection of small doses of drugs, vitamins, minerals or other nutrients directly under the scalp. It is often used to improve scalp health and stimulate hair growth.
Because scalp needle mesotherapy involves injections, it can cause some discomfort. However, local anesthesia is usually used to minimize pain during the procedure.
The frequency of treatments depends on the individual patient’s needs and the doctor’s recommendations. In general, mesotherapy treatments of the scalp are carried out every few weeks.
The most common side effects are small bruises, redness or swelling at the injection site. Most of these effects are temporary and should subside within a few days.
After treatment, it is recommended to avoid intense exercise, hot baths and sun exposure for several days. The doctor may recommend special products for scalp care after the procedure.
A scalp needle mesotherapy treatment usually takes between 30 minutes and an hour, depending on the area being treated.
