HOW MUCH TIME DOES BOTOX TREATMENT TAKE? WILL IT HURT?
The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Some patients report that being injected with botulinum toxin feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment. Treatment requires minimal downtime, so you can generally return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
WHAT ARE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
Anti-wrinkle injections are composed of a natural purified protein, called Botulinum Toxin, (hence the origin of the name BOTOX), that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles creating a smoother, rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. The muscle relaxant inhibits the communication between the nerves and the muscles therefore disabling them from contracting and forming wrinkles. The number of injections required varies depending upon what part of the face is being treated.
Should I keep taking existing hair loss treatments?
Yes. Although Mesotherapy for hair loss can be used as a stand alone treatment, for the best results it’s a good idea to keep taking any existing hair loss products that you’re currently taking. However our consultants will discuss those with you in more depth as to the benefits of other treatments and whether its worthwhile to continue them or not.
Is treatment for hair loss painful?

How long does a hair loss session last?
This will depend on the extent of thinning and the number of injections needed. In general it shouldn’t take longer than 1 hour for a treatment.
How many sessions are required?
For most patients, it’s recommended that they have at least 4 sessions over 2 months so that we can see the extent of hair regrow that and whether the type of hair loss is treatable. Not all hair loss is treatable so we need to assess this first. If we find hair regrow then after the 4 treatments then we would continue treatment on a monthly basis until adequate hair growth is achieved. This will yield the best results as far as regrowth is concerned.
