Hair defines how a person looks and is associated with style and pride for large population of individuals.

Individuals experience hair loss for several reasons, not limited to genetic, hormonal imbalances, stress and aging and scalp diseases.
Growth factors are proteins that help in the growth & rejuvenation of any organ or organ system in the body. They play a role in almost all the vital functions happening in the body. These factors are produced from one part of the body and act on the same or another part of the body to cause the growth and development in the target organ. The growth factors are non organ specific and can act on multiple organs of the body. The main sources of growth factors in the body are the fast multiplying pool of cells like the platelets in the blood (Platelet derived growth factors), Epidermis in the skin (Epidermal growth factor), Blood vessels (Vascular endothelial growth factor) and the human intestines (Insulin like Growth factor) to name a few. Once produced, these growth factors circulate in the blood and cause effects on various organs (Target organs). Like other organs, the hair bulb also has got receptors for these growth factors and responds by stimulating the growth of the hair into the growth phase that is the Anagen.
Mesotherapy is a technique of giving tiny micro-injections and injecting the useful substance directly under the skin (Mesoderm). The main advantage here is that the drug reaches the target site directly without substantial losses from the other body parts. This technique finds applications in various treatments like hair loss management, cellulite management, treatment of double chin, problem areas of overweight and also a glow on the skin.
Mesotherapy for Hair loss is a relatively painless procedure taking up about 30 min where these tiny micro-injections are given into the scalp every 1 cm and various growth factors and poly-vitamins are injected into the hair bulb directly at precisely controlled depth, without any side effects. The procedure is done with a specialized instrument which ensures precise delivery of the drug directly at the target site. The procedure is done by the Dermatologists in Eternesse Anti Aging Clinic who possess expert knowledge about the hair follicle anatomy and is divided into intensive and maintenance phases. The intensive phase is recommended once weekly for about 6-7 weeks and the maintenance phase is once in 2 weeks for initial 6 sessions and thereafter one monthly maintenance for about 6 months to ensure results.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a medical specialty that involves injecting microscopic quantities of natural extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals and vitamins into the skin. It can be used to eliminate cellulite, promote weight loss, treat aging skin and redundant (sagging) skin, and rejuvenate the scalp, hands and neck.
Liposuction does not treat cellulite. In fact, liposuction often causes existing cellulite to appear more prominent. Mesotherapy treats cellulite directly, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas. Fat deposits are flushed from the body, and do not reappear in other areas, which often occurs after liposuction. Mesotherapy does not require hospitalization, general anesthesia or downtime.
Which cosmetic conditions can Mesotherapy treat?
Although Mesotherapy is used to treat a broad spectrum of injuries, illnesses and medical conditions, it is also employed to treat cosmetic conditions, including acne, cellulite, stretch marks, scars and wrinkles. It can also be used to reduce and contour fat.
How does Mesotherapy reduce or eliminate cellulite and fat?
Mesotherapy treats three factors involved in cellulite formation. Your doctor creates a specific formula to reduce the fat in your cellulite, improve impaired circulation and break down damaged connective tissue – thereby smoothing the skin’s surface. Mesotherapy can treat cellulite located anywhere on the body.
What are Mesotherapy’s anti-aging and skin rejuvenation uses?
Subdermal vitamin injections rejuvenate the cells, making them more active, and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. You can begin anti-aging treatments in your mid twenties to prevent wrinkles from forming. Treatments for the face, neck, arms and hands are recommended several times each year.
How does Mesotherapy promote weight loss and spot reduction?
Our customized formula prevents cells from storing fat, and helps break down existing fat cells. Spot reduction targets double chins, love handles and any other areas displaying fat pockets.
When Will I see Results?
Results vary depending on your body type and the condition being treated. On average, patients notice visible improvement in two to three sessions. For certain conditions, patients see results after the first session.
Will the results last?
The results do last, especially when combined with exercise and proper nutrition. However, we cannot stop the natural aging that affects your appearance. For this reason, we recommend regular maintenance visits.
Are the treatments painful?
You may feel a slight pinching or burning sensation when the injections are administered. However, we can provide a topical anesthetic that makes treatment virtually painless.
Are there any side effects?
A common side effect of Mesotherapy is bruising, which generally resolves over one week. To speed up the healing process, we recommend that the homeopathic supplement arnica be taken either orally or applied topically on a daily basis. Patients may experience temporary soreness. This will subside within 24-48 hours.
Are there any Restrictions?
Restrictions vary, depending on the condition being treated. We discuss these with each patient before treatments commence. In general, patients are advised not to wear makeup for at least 4 hours after facial treatments, not to take hot showers for at least 6 to 8 hours. We recommend that patients eat a high-protein meal, and avoid caffeine or other stimulants before treatment.
