What is hair mesotherapy ?
Mesotherapy of the hair and scalp consists of the administration of vitamins to the hair through superficial injections. The active products are injected directly into the scalp.
In severe cases of hair loss for therapeutic purposes, we offer a mesotherapy protocol using platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
To benefit from the PRP mesotherapy protocol, it is necessary to have significant hair loss.
Our mesotherapy protocol includes four sessions spaced two weeks apart.
Light therapy using LED lamps allows us to potentiate the effects of mesotherapy after each injection session.

Medical consultation for cosmetic surgery to analyze hair loss and the stage of baldness. Your surgeon will develop a treatment plan tailored to your case.
Course of the intervention
Your plastic surgeon injects different substances depending on the targeted treatment. The substances can be vitamins, growth factors, minerals, enzymes.
In general terms, mesotherapy consists of three different injection techniques that treat the skin at three different levels:
- First the epidermal level
- Then the dermo-epidermal level called “papule
- Finally the intradermal level called “nappage”.
These three techniques have different objectives because they reach different depths of the skin.
Depending on the patient and the quality of the skin, we need to use one, two or all three. Therefore, we normally start with a careful examination of the patient. It should be kept in mind that the French approach to aesthetic treatments should have natural results without over-correction. For this reason, we recommend a comprehensive diagnosis.
We inject mesotherapy treatments with the U 225 injector gun to ensure your comfort and absence of pain during the treatment at our medical office. There is no side effect.

What are the alternatives to PRP for hair loss?
If you want more permanent and dramatic results, hair transplants may be the answer.
FUE (follicular unit extraction) is the most common type of hair transplantation performed. The surgeon removes individual hair follicles, then re-implants them through tiny incisions. This procedure involves less downtime and pain than FUT, and doctors often use devices such as the ARTAS robot or NeoGraft to harvest the follicles.
FUT (follicular unit transplant) remains the gold standard in hair restoration surgery. This method involves taking a horizontal strip of hair from the back of the head in the permanent area. The hair follicles are separated individually under dissection microscopes and then implanted into the areas of baldness or hair loss.
