Alopecia is an increasingly common aesthetic defect affecting both men and women. The causes of alopecia are very diverse and determine treatment of excessive hair loss. Regardless of the cause, it is worth visiting an aesthetic medicine clinic and undergo procedures that nourish hair follicles. These procedures involve injecting the scalp with preparations containing a rich set of active compounds. In this way, the epidermal barrier is crossed and the compounds impact directly hair follicles. We often perform mesotherapy with platelet rich plasma collected from the Patient.
A hair bulb – its only living part – is anchored in hair follicles. Alopecia treatment allows for intradermal administration of active compounds. Thanks to crossing a skin barrier the preparation works much more effectively than when applied on the skin. The very process of puncturing the skin activates blood circulation in the scalp, while vitamins, amino acids and growth factors introduced into the skin vitamins comprehensively nourish hair follicles.
After a thorough interview with the Patient, a physician often decides to introduce pharmacological treatment with minoxidil, which is currently considered the most effective medication for hair loss. Hormonal therapy is sometimes necessary as well. For maximum effectiveness, it is important to correctly diagnose the problem.
