Getting To The Root Of Hair Loss

Published: Tue Dec 06 2005

About 40% of women around the world will suffer from thinning hair or hair loss, while 50% of men will experience some type of hair loss by age 50. Losing hair for women is like losing their "crowning glory" while men associate hair loss with loss of youth and sex appeal. Now there’s MesoHair, a series of virtually painless injections of vitamins, minerals, and DHT blockers directed into the scalp to effectively aid in hair re-growth in women experiencing certain types of hair loss and reversing male pattern baldness in men.

Sam Assassa M.D., Medical Director of Beverly Hills Aesthetics in Beverly Hills, CA, uses Mesotherapy in women experiencing post-partum hair loss and peri-menospausal or menopausal hair loss. In addition, Mesotherapy has elicited a good response in younger men experiencing early stages of male pattern baldness.

Originally a medical technique devised in 1952 by Frenchman Dr. Michel Pistor to treat such conditions as Rheumatology, Sports Traumatology, Infectious diseases, Vascular diseases and the improvement of circulation, Mesotherapy has subsequently been extremely successful in the treatment of aesthetic conditions most commonly spot fat reduction and the elimination of cellulite. Now, Dr. Assassa has found that Mesotherapy used as a prolonged treatment of a series of eight to twelve, monthly injections, should help both men and women with hair loss. Once-a-month maintenance therapy continues to enhance the existing hair.

According to Dr. Assassa, "Mesotherapy replaces the vitamins and minerals that the body loses as we age. The medications in Mesotherapy treatments cause an increase in blood circulation to the scalp area and stimulates the hair follicles."
MesoHair, through micro-injections delivers specially formulated FDA approved concoction under the scalp straight to the hair follicles. This mixture delivers long-acting neutralizing effects on the DHT hormone produced in the body, allowing for hairs to grow. An excess of the DHT (dehydrotestosterone) hormone causes hair loss.

Dr. Assassa stresses that this is not a cure for hair loss, but certainly a safe, simple and cost-effective option to treat certain conditions. As Dr. Assassa states, "MesoHair restoration therapy can in some cases eliminate the need for hair transplant."
