The treatment is performed with a thin needle or a special gun. After mesotherapy small dots or grates remain on the skin, which disappear after a few days. However, it is worth knowing that the punctures themselves are not particularly painful. If someone has a very low pain threshold or is panically afraid of it, then a special anesthetic cream or spray can be used. The entire procedure takes about half an hour. The number of treatments is estimated by a specialist who examines your hair and the condition of your scalp. However, the treatment should not be performed more often than once a week for 2 months (this is called intensive therapy)
