What is hair stimulation by injection?
Hair stimulation by injection involves introducing substances directly into the scalp that have a positive impact on hair growth. For example:
- In a PRP treatment, the doctor will inject platelet-rich plasma (or PRP) taken from the patient’s own blood.
In hair mesotherapy, a combination of polyvitamins, amino acids, trace elements, minerals and vasodilators is injected into the scalp.
Hair stimulation by injection aims to normalize hair loss and, in some patients, to stimulate hair growth. As such: :
- Platelet-rich plasma activates hair microcirculation and regenerates hair follicle cells. PRP treatment is often prescribed as a complement to a hair transplant and can sometimes significantly slow down hair loss after the first session. An increase in hair density can also be observed in some patients.
- Hair mesotherapy deeply nourishes the hair roots while stimulating blood circulation in the scalp. Hair loss slows down after two months of treatment and an increase in hair diameter can be observed sometimes.
Hair stimulation treatments are often prescribed to people suffering from telogen effluvium or androgenetic alopecia because of their effectiveness on some patients.
Improving the patient’s comfort
As the name implies, hair stimulation by injection techniques require injecting substances intradermally with sterile microneedles. This can be uncomfortable for some patients.
Improving the effectiveness of injection treatments
- a very high rate of injections (“high frequency”) ;
- a consistent and repeatable injection rate;
- the ability to adjust the depth of penetration of the needle (between 1 and 10 mm);
- the U225 gun built-in blocking system, which minimizes the loss of product during the session.
