Hair loss is most commonly associated with inadequate nutrition and blood circulation to the hair follicles. In some cases, it can also be a result of hormonal imbalances. And while it is completely normal to lose between 50 and 60 strands of hair daily, shedding more than this can indicate that there is a bigger problem that needs to be addressed. There are 2 popular hair restoration techniques: DHI hair transplant and FUE hair transplant.
In order to grasp the idea behind the mesotherapy treatment, it’s first important to understand why people start to lose hair. Below, we’ll go over the most common reasons for hair loss.
- Genetic characteristics, especially in male pattern hair loss
- Factors such as stress and fatigue
- Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
- Troubles with your thyroid hormone
- Anemia (Iron deficiency)
- After the birth of a child
- As a result of shampoo or other hair care products
- Viral infection
- Water and air pollution
Hair Mesotherapy Treatment – What is It?
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive procedure where protein, vitamins, minerals, and a variety of drugs are injected into your mesoderm (the middle layer of your skin on the scalp). When the combination of active substances is injected into your scalp, your hair follicles will react and start regaining their healthy structure. As a result, the amount of hair loss you experience will be brought to a minimum.
Prior to your procedure, it is essential for Dr. Resul Yaman to determine what exactly is causing your hair loss. That way, the treatment can be specifically tailored to your needs, giving you the best chance of restoring your natural hair back.
How are Hair Mesotherapy Treatments Done?
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical intervention. The cost of a hair transplant in Turkey is generally higher than mesotherapy, which is a non-surgical hair loss treatment that involves injecting vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the scalp. Unlike Hair Transplantation, which requires more finances and resources, mesotherapy injection itself is a mixture tailored to each patient’s specific needs. The main substances in a mesotherapy injection include hyaluronic acid, amino acids, collagen, and elastin. These are responsible for the regeneration and growth of hair.
Prior to your mesotherapy treatment, the doctor will have to determine whether a medical issue is the cause of your hair loss. To determine this, the doctor will put you through a health examination. If the results come back saying that a medical factor is contributing to your hair loss, Dr. Yaman will create a treatment plan to address the medical factor that is causing you to experience the loss of hair.
The doctor will begin your treatment by injecting the mixture prepared using a mesotherapy gun or injector into the different parts of your scalp. The micro-injections that will be made during the procedure are typically not painful.
To achieve good results, the average patient at Dr. Yaman’s clinic has to attend an average of 6 to 8 sessions. The total number of sessions you may need will vary depending on the severity of your case. Once the treatment is complete, achieving your desired results can take up to 12 months. You’ll be able to clearly see the results of mesotherapy treatments, and compare your before-and-after photos just as you would with hair transplant before and after.
Who Can Mostly Benefit From a Mesotherapy Treatment?

What Should I Do After a Mesotherapy Treatment?
The aftercare of your mesotherapy treatment is very important for the success of the procedure. For the first three days of your procedure, please avoid washing or treating your hair and exposing your scalp to direct sunlight. Please don’t go inside a pool, the sea, or the sauna for the first week. Your injection points need adequate time to recover and dry up. Please also avoid drinking alcohol or massaging your scalp. If you don’t follow the doctor’s recommended aftercare guidelines, your recovery may take longer than usual or lead to unsatisfactory results.
