Mesotherapy with dutasteride
Find out everything about this treatment
Mesotherapy with dutasteride microinjections is a new treatment to treat male and female androgenetic alopecia. It entails applying a medicine called dutasteride to the scalp, an antiandrogen medicine that helps improving the width of hair follicles. The amount and frequency of sessions will vary depending on the degree of alopecia.
Mesotherapy effects on the hair
Research about it in the last years have brought experimental and clinical evidence that prove that capillary mesotherapy enhances blood microcirculation, revitalizes hair follicles, improves scalp trophism, and increases hair thickness and volume.
Dr. Espinosa Custodio at his clinic in Madrid, Instituto Médico del Prado, always insists that every intradermal and pharmacological treatment (PRP, mesotherapy, and so on.) are focused on improving follicles, they’re never going to create new hair. The only solution when there are no follicles is doing a hair transplantation. For this reason, it is very important that the diagnosis is made by a specialized doctor so he can determine the cause of your alopecia, as well as the indicated treatment for the patient. In our case, apart from Dr. Espinosa’s experience we have a trichoscope that analyzes hair density and follicle width (Hairmetrix by Canfield).
Scientific evidence and results
Research about it in the last years have brought experimental and clinical evidence that prove that capillary mesotherapy enhances blood microcirculation, revitalizes hair follicles, improves scalp trophism, and increases hair thickness and volume. For example, there is a research made by the doctors Moftah, Abd-Elaziz, Ahmed, Hamed, Ghannam e Ibraim en el año 2013.
In our experience, we can assure that the use of mesotherapy with dutasteride is a very effective treatment to fight androgenetic alopecia, getting impressive medium-term results (6 to 8 months) and with no side effects.
Additional treatments to capillary mesotherapy
There are other treatments that also help increasing hair density such as pharmacological treatments with minoxidil, finasteride or dutasteride, that can be administered orally or as a lotion. Platelet-Rich-Plasma is also a treatment that can be combined with mesotherapy with dutasteride.
Depending on the patient, we can give other medication such as melatonin, latanoprost, cyproterone, and so on. Dr. Espinosa studies each patient’s case carefully to analyze what treatment is the most adequate for each one of them. In many cases it must be a combination of several treatments to achieve a better effectiveness.
Mesotherapy with dutasteride is a very recommendable treatment for patients that have had a hair transplant. It can also be indicated to those patients who are going to get a hair transplantation in the coming months.
