The scalp treatment is an effective measure for strong hair roots.
Permanently beautiful and full hair requires care and a supply of important nutrients such as proteins, minerals, or vitamins.
If this care is lacking, it can impair the growth of the hair or even lead to hair loss.
You can already do a lot for the health of your hair at home: with high-quality care products and protection against UV radiation.
Furthermore, there are additional gentle procedures that provide your scalp and hair roots with important nutrients and growth factors.
With scalp treatment (autologous blood therapy), swelling gas therapy (carboxytherapy), and mesotherapy, you can provide your scalp and hair roots with important nutrients, promote hair growth and counteract hair loss.
These gentle procedures, which have few side effects, can be performed individually or in combination and are also an optimal complement and support for hair pigmentation or hair transplantation.
Scalp treatment/own blood therapy
In Scalp, PRP hair root treatment, nutrients are extracted from the patient’s own blood and injected into the scalp to naturally stimulate hair growth.
The abbreviation PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and is an established form of autologous blood treatment in various medical specialties.
The growth factors and micronutrients contained in the blood plasma in concentrated form improve blood circulation, promote cell regeneration and stimulate the regeneration of existing hair roots.
In inactive or newly implanted hair follicles, the treatment can trigger an active growth phase, as the growth factors stimulate the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle.
Scalp treatment procedure
For Scalp therapy, blood is first taken from the arm vein and prepared in a centrifuge.
After preparation, the plasma contains up to five times as many white platelets as circulating blood.
The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the scalp in the area of thinning hair.
The treatment takes very little time and results in no downtime. For optimal results, several treatments at short intervals are recommended.
The treatment results show after about two to three months. For a long-term effect, the treatment can be refreshed at longer intervals.
PRP scalp treatment aims to slow down overall hair loss and stimulate hair growth. It can be used to treat various forms of hair loss.
Since only the body’s own substances are used in PRP treatment, it is particularly well tolerated.
Allergic reactions are almost impossible.
The safety and benefits of PRP autologous blood treatment have been proven and confirmed in numerous studies and medical research.
Different Treatment that can Suffice for Scalp Treatment.
In mesotherapy (mesohair), highly concentrated active ingredients such as vitamins or growth factors are injected into the scalp with fine needles.
The composition of the wellness treatment for the hair roots is individually tailored to the needs of the patient.
The hair roots are supplied with necessary nutrients, the growth of the hair roots is stimulated, and hair loss is counteracted.
Mesotherapy can be performed quickly and easily. The injections take only a short time; anesthesia in advance is not necessary for the low-pain procedure.
Immediately after the mesotherapy, you can go back to your daily routine.
The effect of mesotherapy becomes apparent approximately one to three months after treatment.
To achieve optimal results, several sessions should be performed.
For lasting success, the treatment can also be refreshed at longer intervals.
Mesotherapy can basically be used for all types of hair loss. Before the treatment, however, there should always be a detailed consultation and anamnesis with the query of possible allergies in order to exclude incompatibilities.
Wellness treatment for the hair roots: Mesotherapy
Swelling gas therapy/carboxy therapy
With swelling gas therapy (carboxytherapy), fine needles are used to inject natural carbon dioxide (CO2) into the areas of the scalp where hair loss occurs.
The injection stimulates blood circulation in the scalp and metabolism in the cells, promoting oxygenation in the tissues.
This strengthens the hair roots and stimulates hair growth.
The procedure of a swelling gas therapy
The swelling gas therapy takes only a few minutes and can therefore be easily integrated into everyday life.
The injections may cause a slight feeling of tension under the skin, but this is short-lived.
For an optimal effect, it is recommended to repeat the carboxy therapy several times.
The effect of this modern form of therapy against hair loss can be seen just a few weeks after treatment.
The use of the carboxy procedure is initially suitable for all types of hair loss. To find out whether the treatment is the most suitable for you and your needs, a detailed consultation should always take place in advance.
The origins of scalp sensitivity: pollution, stress
A sensitive scalp is a scalp that causes itching and irritation. Several factors, such as pollution, stress or overly aggressive care products, can increase scalp sensitivity.
Here are some good ways to treat it.
When the scalp is tight and itchy
Tightness, painful hair roots, itching… Like the skin on your face or body, your scalp can be sensitive. It is subjected to numerous daily aggressions that make it more fragile.
Under the action of certain factors such as pollution or stress, the scalp develops an increased sensitivity.
In addition to itching, a feeling of dryness, and a slight pain to the touch, dandruff can also appear.
This is because the physiological flora of the scalp changes, and micro-organisms multiply.
The cells of the scalp then renew themselves more quickly, and dandruff forms.
Scalp sensitivity has several causes.
There are several causes of scalp sensitivity. Starting with an imbalance in the production of sebum, which can cause irritation.
Pollution and stress can also cause scalp irritation.
Pollution deposits elements on the hair that create a dull veil and generate free radicals, just like stress.
The latter modifies the structure of the scalp and alters the hair bulb. The hair then loses all its shine and strength.
Among the daily aggressions that cause scalp problems, there are also :
- a nutritional deficiency
- shampoos that are too aggressive
- Brushing too often
- prolonged wearing of motorcycle or scooter helmets
- the swimming pool, the sun…
- Itching, redness, and flaking are sometimes signs of conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. It is advisable in this case to treat them to see the disorders.
Gentle shampoos to treat the scalp
To restore the physiological balance of the scalp, the first thing to do is to use a shampoo for sensitive scalps, such as Kerium Extrême.
It provides an immediate sensation of comfort and long-lasting relief for the scalp.
It is formulated with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water and silicone-free for a natural feel.
Other gestures should also be adopted to respect the scalp on a daily basis:
- eat a healthy and balanced diet
- learn how to manage your stress
- massage your scalp regularly to stimulate blood circulation
- do not tie your hair up too tightly and let it breathe during the day
- protect your hair from the sun with hats
Frequently asked questions about scalp treatments.
How long does a scalp treatment take?
It doesn’t matter whether you opt for a PRP treatment, a mesotherapy, or a swelling gas therapy: At 15 to 45 minutes, the treatments take very little time and are therefore ideal for in-between times.
Immediately after the treatment, you can return to your daily routine as usual.
Is a PRP treatment painful?
Many of our patients fear that the injections into the scalp are painful. But here we can reassure you. Only very thin, fine needles are used for the injections.
Therefore, autohemotherapy is usually not perceived as painful.
However, if there is a desire to do so, an anesthetic ointment can be applied to the scalp in advance, or the treatment can be performed under local anesthesia.
This also applies to the swelling gas treatment as well as mesotherapy.
Can scalp treatments be combined with hair transplantation?
Yes, of course, it is possible. Scalp treatments to strengthen the hair roots are an ideal complement for hair transplants.
This can strengthen the hair roots after transplantation and stimulate growth.
Scalp treatment can also be used as a supportive measure for hair pigmentation.
Will I be socially acceptable again directly after the scalp treatment?
You can go back to your daily routine directly after the scalp treatment. The injections may cause slight redness or swelling of the scalp, but this will disappear within a short time.

In principle, PRP treatment, as well as mesotherapy and swelling gas therapy, can be used for almost all patients with hair loss.
However, in some cases, e.g., blood coagulation disorders, cancer, pregnancy, or during breastfeeding, we do not recommend treatment.
We will, of course, provide detailed advice on this during your consultation.
How many sessions are necessary for a scalp treatment?
