Hair loss can occur in women as well as men, and millions of people around the nation are affected by this common, but upsetting, condition. Fortunately, the latest techniques and technology make it possible to slow hair loss and stimulate regrowth without the need for invasive surgery. The U225 mesotherapy injector is an innovative device that makes it possible to administer growth factors directly into a targeted area and encourage natural hair growth. Hair thinning and loss can be caused by many factors, including genetics, stress, and poor diet. We will help you identify the nature of your concern and select a suitable approach for your desired outcome.
If you’re bothered by hair loss, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim and our skilled medical team can help you determine if mesotherapy treatment with the U225 is right for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
What is the U225 Mesotherapy Injector?
Mesotherapy is a type of cosmetic treatment in which beneficial formulas are delivered into the desired area using a series of tiny injections. The U225 mesotherapy injector device is used to administer the serums into the layer of tissue just under the epidermis (top layer of skin). While this approach can be used to achieve many aesthetic goals, we have found it is particularly effective in stimulating hair growth in patients showing pattern hair loss and other types of hair thinning. PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) is the most common substance we dispense with this method, which uses components of your own blood to restore your hairline. Injectable solutions can also contain vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and co-enzymes customized to suit each individual’s needs and goals.
What are the benefits?
Many hair loss treatments are available on the market, but the most effective have typically been surgical. Now it’s possible to see results without the need for invasive techniques. Benefits include:
- Patients often report better results than oral or topical hair loss treatment alone
- Results can be seen in as little as four to five weeks, with more improvement over time
- Minimal downtime
- More affordable than surgical procedures
- Tailored to optimize your results
What can I expect?
We want to make your experience as comfortable and successful as possible. During your initial consultation, our experienced skincare team will evaluate your hair loss, discuss your treatment, and review your medical history. We will also talk about expectations for the results and develop a customized treatment plan. During the procedure, your scalp will be treated with a topical anesthetic to enhance your comfort. Most patients feel little to no discomfort, as the micro-injections are very superficial. Some bruising, swelling, and redness will occur, and these effects should subside with time. Dr. Ebrahim will provide additional post-care information as needed for your unique program.
How many sessions will I need?
Treatments should be spaced out once every one to two weeks, and most patients begin to see results after about the fourth session or so, although your experience may vary. We usually recommend 8-10 courses of mesotherapy initially, with occasional maintenance sessions to preserve the results. During your initial meeting with Dr. Ebrahim, she will review how many treatments will maximize your results and how often you should repeat the procedure in the future for the best outcome.
