    TLDR Some people experienced hair loss after mesotherapy treatments for hair loss.
    The document described two cases where individuals developed alopecia following mesotherapy treatments for androgenetic alopecia. A 32-year-old woman experienced patchy hair loss and sustained a small area of permanent cicatricial alopecia three months post-treatment after receiving injections of mesoglycan. Another 22-year-old woman suffered from reversible hair loss after being treated with homeopathic injections. These cases underscore the potential adverse effects of mesotherapy, such as acute and cicatricial alopecia, and call attention to the necessity for caution due to insufficient controlled studies on the safety and effectiveness of this treatment for hair loss.
