How the Vital InjectorTM works against hair loss
The Vital InjectorTM is an innovative device for mesotherapy against hair loss. Contrary to conventional mesotherapy, the Vital InjectorTM works with a patented vacuum technology with a 5/9 needle head. The advantage: shorter treatment time and more even injection with significantly reduced pain.
- Circular hair loss (Alopecia areata)
- Diffuse hair loss (thinning hair)
- Hereditary hair loss (Alopecia androgenica)
With the Vital Injector TM, it is possible to treat diffuse, hormone-induced and circular hair loss very successfully. Special growth-stimulating active substance compounds and/or endogenous PRP are injected into the scalp. Mesotherapy with the Vital Injector TM has a dual positive effect: apart from the therapeutic effect of the active substances or the PRP, the mechanical micro injuries actively promote cell stimulation and blood circulation, which has a positive effect on hair growth.
The advantages of the Vital InjectorTM
- Very good results against hair loss
- Significantly less painful than traditional mesotherapy
- No periods of inactivity afterwards
- Also suitable for skin rejuvenation
What is PRP?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a yellowy-transparent fluid without red blood cells that is gained from autologous blood. The growth factors contained in the platelets are especially effective in the treatment of hair loss:
- Cell regeneration is stimulated
- Growth factors are stimulated
- The regeneration of damaged hair root cells is stimulated
- New hair root cells are stimulated
Treatment procedure with Vital InjectorTM (MesoGun)
Before the treatment
Before each treatment, a detailed consultation is held with Dr. Ledermann, agreeing on the treatment zones and the aim of the treatment. If required, the scalp can be pretreated with a light anaesthetising spray.
Important: 7 days before the PRP treatment, one should not take any painkillers such as aspirin, Voltaren, ibuprofen etc. as the platelets are inhibited by them.
Treatment with PRP and the Mesohair active substance.
Before treatment, around 15ml of blood is taken from the patient’s vein. The plasma and the platelets are separated from the other components in a special procedure. In the next step, the PRP plasma is applied evenly with the Vital InjectorTM Mesogun in 5 or 9 pricks over an area of around 1 square centimetre. Depending on the aim of the treatment and customer requirements, the PRP can be enriched in addition with growth-stimulating substances (Mesohair). These substances stimulate and regenerate the hair follicles further, increasing blood circulation and promoting the supply of vital substances.
Depending on the size of the area, the actual treatment with the Vital InjectorTM takes around 45-60 minutes. The hair loss treatment usually involves around 4-6 sessions at intervals of 3-4 weeks.
No special follow-up treatment is required. The hair can be washed as usual the day after.
For whom is the Vital Injector mesotherapy suitable?
When is treatment not recommended?
Mesotherapy is not recommended in cases of total hair loss or long-term development of baldness, due to a poor prospect of success. In the following cases, we do not carry out a PRP treatment at our practice:
- Scalp inflammation
- Autoimmune diseases, untreated HIV infection, hepatitis etc.
