Hair mesografting is a hair regeneration technique. It uses stem cells from the scalp to fight against the effects of androgenetic alopecia. A session can normalize hair loss and stimulate regrowth. The hair that grows back is thicker.
The advantages of mesografting hair
- Normalizes hair loss and stimulates regrowth
- Suitable for men and women
- Recommended in cases of androgenetic alopecia
- The treatment is done in one session
The negative point of this treatment is that it must be repeated every 1 to 2 years.
What is hair mesografting?
Mesografting is a hair stimulation technique that uses regenerative medicine.
The objective is to use mesenchymal stem cells from the scalp to reactivate follicular units. These cells are multipotent and can secrete bioactive molecules that reactivate damaged cells by reducing inflammation. Hence its effectiveness in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia.
One mesograft session is enough to normalize hair loss and significantly thicken the hair. Maintenance sessions should be performed every 1 to 2 years.

For which patients?
Hair mesografting is recommended for patients suffering from androgenetic alopecia, more specifically:
men who haven’t yet reached stage 5 on the Hamilton scale
women who haven’t yet reached stage 2 on the Ludwig scale
Mesografting is sometimes recommended before a hair transplant.
What are the results?
The results of a mesograft are often quite significant. A single session normalizes hair loss and stimulates hair growth. The hair that grows back is thicker. The first effects are visible three months after the mesograft.
What happens during a session?
A mesograft session takes 30 to 60 minutes.
Step 1: Evaluating the patient’s scalp
The first step is to establish a complete diagnosis of the patient’s hair to determine if he or she can undergo mesografting. To do this, the doctor will do a clinical examination to identify the patient’s stage of alopecia on the Hamilton scale (or the Ludwig scale if the patient is a woman).
Step 2: Stem cell extraction
The doctor extracts the stem cells, as well as the fat and mesenchymal tissue. To do this, he shaves a small area of the scalp (1cm), gives a local anaesthetic, scrapes the dermis to remove the epidermis and removes the grafts using a 2.5 millimetre diameter punch. Three grafts are enough for the mesograft.
Step 3: Tissue separation and filtering
The grafts containing the collected stem cells are then placed in the Rigenerakit with 1.2 milliliters of saline. They are crushed and then filtered for one minute until a cellular concentrate called the lyophilisate is produced.
Step 4: Injecting the lyophilisate into the scalp
The lyophilisate is diluted in saline before being injected deep into the treated area with a fine needle.
1 session of hair mesograft: 1500 €.
Is hair mesografting effective?
YES – Mesografting is effective in most cases and it generally only takes one session to see results. One month after the session, the hair loss is normalized and the hair starts to grow back gradually. They also become thicker. The first results are usually visible after three months.
Does mesografting have lasting effects?
YES – The effects of mesografting are long-lasting. However, we recommend doing maintenance sessions every 1 to 2 years.
Is mesografting painful?
NO – The mesograft is performed under local anesthesia and the postoperative pain is very low since the doctor only removes three tiny fragments
Are there any contraindications to hair mesografting?
YES – Hair mesografting is only recommended to patients whose alopecia has not exceeded stage 5 on the Hamilton scale for men and stage 2 on the Ludwig scale for women. In addition, mesografting is not recommended for patients with skin and scalp diseases, allergies, blood circulation problems, cancer or infectious diseases.
Are there any risks of complications?
NO – Mesografting is an autologous transplant. This means that the doctor uses the patient’s own cells. Therefore, there is no risk of rejection or side effects.

YES – Micrografting is a minor procedure. Patients can resume their activities immediately.
I'm about to have a hair transplant. Can I have a hair mesograft?
YES – Mesografting is often recommended to prepare for a hair transplant. It stimulates the hair growth process and makes it denser.

NO – Mesografting is a cell generation technique. It can be used to fight against the effects of androgenetic alopecia, but it does not stop the evolutionary process permanently.[/accordion-item]
