What is dandruff, and what are the causes?

Dandruff is flaking of the scalp, where numerous white flakes of skin accumulate at the base of the hair. With movement, these flakes spread and fall on the shoulders. Peeling occurs because cells in the scalp die quickly, causing these skin scales to detach. Some attitudes, such as frequent scratching of the scalp, can make the problem worse. Dandruff usually affects more men than women. It is a rare phenomenon in the elderly and children as it mainly affects young adults up to 40 years of age.


Causes of dandruff

It is difficult to identify the triggers for dandruff. Some studies have found that in many cases, it is caused by a fungus, Malassezia furfur. In general, it is more common to speak of aggravating conditions rather than causes.

Stress is often blamed for causing or aggravating dandruff. Even incorrect hair washing – excessive, too rare, or with aggressive soaps – can negatively affect the problem.

In general, any dermatitis or inflammatory condition of the scalp are negative factors, as are chronic conditions such as psoriasis.

Skin that is too dry and too oily skin is more prone to dandruff. Dehydrated skin flakes more easily, and oily skin will tend to produce excess sebum, which solidifying will disperse like dandruff. Furthermore, it is essential to exclude the use of any product that could trigger an allergic reaction to the scalp by undergoing the appropriate tests.


Mesotherapy: remedy against dandruff

As mentioned, dandruff is the flaking of the scalp due to cell death. Ensuring the right nourishment for the hair and scalp is essential for fortifying cells and decreasing inflammation situations. Precisely for these reasons, among the advantages produced by Mesotherapy, there is also dandruff reduction. Mesotherapy is a remedy for dandruff for two reasons.


  1. The patented lotion is applied through microneedles. These tiny perforations stimulate collagen and elastin production, substances naturally produced by the skin’s cells and responsible for its health and vitality. Furthermore, these injections improve blood flow and, therefore, tissue health.
  2. The injected lotion, patented in the laboratory, contains precisely those substances produced naturally by the cells. The result will therefore be hydrated, nourished, and invigorated skin, much less prone to dandruff.
