Mesotherapy (from Greek mesos, “middle”, and therapy from Greek therapeia, “to treat medically”) is a non-surgical cosmetic medicine treatment. Mesotherapy employs multiple injections of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients into subcutaneous fat. Mesotherapy injections allegedly target adipose fat cells, apparently by inducing lipolysis, rupture and cell death among adipocytes.
There are published studies on the clinical treatments and effects of these medications and numerous cocktails of combined chemical compounds on the body have been reported in Europe and South America for several years. There is no conclusive research proof that these chemical compounds work to target adipose (fat cells) specifically. Cell lysis, resulting from the detergent action of deoxycholic, may account for any clinical effect.
In 2012, a French laboratory invented a way to insert a treatment of Mesotherapy into a liquid podlet. This podlet is then plugged into a facial steamer titled the MTherapy Beauty Pod which applies the treatment to the user’s facial pores via steam. This was the first invention of it’s kind to enable Mesotherapy treatments directly to consumers within their own home.
Someone asks if platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or mesotherapy is a better non-surgical hair fall treatment
New York hair restoration specialist Amiya Prasad MD reviews this question in this video, explaining the limits and effectiveness of these injection treatments, and a much more effective alternative that uses a PRP combination:
1:20 – Dr. Prasad’s experience in surgical and non-surgical hair loss solutions
1:39 – Dr. Prasad’s success with non-surgical hair loss treatment that has limited the amount of hair transplants he performs
2:14 – What PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is, and how it can help short-term hair growth, but is limited and needs to be repeated every month to three months
3:02 – Mesotherapy is not practiced in the US, but mostly in Europe with vitamin injections
3:50 – Why Dr. Prasad does not believe mesotherapy works because vitamin injections do not help with genetic hair loss caused by hormones
4:30 – Pharmaceutical solutions prescribed to treat hair loss
4:45 – Hair restoration surgery and its limitations
5:00 – How Hair Regeneration works, and how it was developed by Dr. Prasad to thicken hair and stop hair loss
5:33 – Hair Regeneration’s effectiveness in thickening hair after one treatment, and how patients progress are documented
5:54 – How some advanced hair loss cases get a second injection after 18 months to build upon progress
6:06 – How 5 years of data has shown sustainability of Hair Regeneration’s results
6:39 – PRP or mesotherapy does not stop hair loss progression, but Hair Regeneration has proved it can by thickening thinning hair
