Question What is Mesotherapy and how effective is that?

Hi,
I have lost my hair and I'm in stage 7 of Norwood Hamilton Scale.
Recently I have visited a Beauty Care center who were advertising about the stem cell therapy or mesotherapy. They were confidently stating that this therapy would give 100 % results in regrowth of hair on my scalp. I would like to know if this stem cell therapy really effective for hair regrowth? in some of the sites I have seen that the stem cell therapy is still in research and no where I have seen any great news about stem cells in regrowing hair. I dont want to get bluffed with false promises. Please clarify.

thanks in advance!!

krishonkrush,

I can assure you that there is no stem cell therapy currently available that will regrow any significant amount of hair. Trust me. There are literally hundreds of members in this community alone that are eagerly awaiting such a breakthrough.

Undergoing any such procedure will only guarantee to lighten your wallet and may even be harmful.

Unfortunately, with such a significant amount of hair loss, you are most likely beyond the reach the medical hair loss treatments, Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride) and probably not a candidate for hair transplant surgery. However, if you have not yet done so, I highly recommend consulting with a recommended hair restoration physician. If there is any credible treatment option available to you, they will shoot straight and will not waste your time or money.

Default Thanks for your quick response bro :)

Well, it's quite disappointing to know that all possible treatments are not suitable for me being in NW VII state. I'm seriously worrying a lot about my problem. I hope you can understand, being unmarried what I'm going through; not even dare enough to propose a girl I love.
So, the last option what I was thinking about is 'bio fiber' or the implantation of artificial hair.
I have seen some sites like Biofibre hair implants, Biofibre artificial hair replacement and Nido at Cosmetic Surgery Specialists Prague Makeover , who claim to do artificial hair implantation.
I heard that artificial hair implantation has been banned by FDA some years back for the side effects it has, but some people claim that there has been further improvements made in this aspect and are waiting for approval.
I would like to know your comments on artificial hair, if any advancements in this procedure, or if any hopes in future.

thank you

krishonkrush,

I completely understand your desperation but I urge you to stay away from transplanting artificial hair. It can result in pain, infection, and even disfigurement.

Contact one ore more of the quality hair restoration surgeons I linked to above and find out what your real options are.
