Brief Answer:
Mesotherapy is proven

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Mesotherapy is a proven therapy for hair loss however you must not expect extraordinary results.
It gives around 20 % benefit.
You should also use minoxidil lotion twice daily for better results.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
