Understanding dutasteride mesotherapy for hair loss

Hair thinning and loss can happen to both men and women, and as we age, it may become more apparent that we no longer enjoy thick, voluminous hair as we did as young adults. If you are finding yourself bothered by the amount of thinning and loss occurring, it may be time to talk to a professional about your treatment options. Dr. Tatiana Khrom of Khrom Dermatology MedSpa and Wellness is a medical provider in the Coral Springs, Florida, area who understands how embarrassing hair loss can be and can help you restore thickness–and self-confidence–with a popular treatment known as dutasteride mesotherapy.

What is dutasteride mesotherapy?

Dutasteride is a medication that helps lower the levels of DHT (dihydrotestosterone- a hormone responsible for hair thinning in genetically predisposed individuals 
 
Many patients are hesitant to take dutasteride orally as they are concerned with the possibility of systemic side effects. The dutasteride mesotherapy treatment involves the injection of dutasteride into the areas of hair loss of the scalp, avoiding systemic side effects that oral dutasteride can cause.This medication can help lower dihydrotestosterone levels, responsible for some thinning and loss. Patients come in for regular injections of this medication into their scalp over time to boost hair restoration. However, it has been found that as soon as patients stop injections, their hair thinning and loss will likely return. It is vital that patients continue injections to maintain the results they have achieved.

How long do the results of dutasteride mesotherapy injections last?

Continued studies are needed to pinpoint the length of time a patient will enjoy the benefits of this medication, though it has been found that most men and women will see and achieve results that last a few months. As long as they continue to have injections performed, they will continue to see improvements in their hair thinning and loss. This treatment may be paired with other hair loss treatments, such as medicated shampoos, to help stimulate the hair follicles for increased growth.
