Microneedling is a method that creates transdermal microchannels across the skin to help induce stem cells in the hair follicles that lead to hair growth. In addition, drug delivery via microneedling is more reliable and consistent than oral routes because it avoids digestive degradation and liver metabolism.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for Hair is the science of regenerative medicine using your own growth factors to regenerate hair, without the concerns for infection, allergy, foreign material, or surgical interventions. PRP Hair Restoration is effective in treating male and female pattern baldness, both in preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth. PRP can also aid in the stimulation of hair growth after hair transplants.
PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood (8 ml), processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain. This amount of blood is very minor and will not cause you any side effects Your scalp is anaesthetized, then the PRP is injected into the balding area using needles/micro-roller/derma pen. This is done while causing minimal amount of discomfort. The whole procedure takes 60 minutes.The growth factors in the blood cells then do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth. The protein activates the growth factors needed to stimulate hair growth and increases blood supply and nutrition to the scalp, hence decreasing hair fall and stimulating new hair.
The results are normally seen within 3 to 6 months and may require 4 to 6 sessions at intervals of about 4 weeks followed by maintainance if needed once in 3-6 months. Advanced PRP treatment involve combining this with hair growth serums with special peptides, vitamins, minerals and stem cell factors. It’s a simple, nonsurgical procedure with safe and reliable results and a very quick recovery period.
3. Meso Therapy
Essential proteins, vitamins, and nutrients that enable the growth of hair are introduced into the scalp providing the nutrition required for hair regrowth.
4. Growth Factor Concentrate
The latest method of regrowth using a scientific concentration of growth factors coupled with those derived from your serum for more effective hair regrowth.
5. Low-Level Laser (Light) Therapy (LLLT) for Treatment of Hair Loss
LLLT is a modern non-surgical hair loss treatment that uses laser light to stimulate cell growth and supercharge hair follicles. It helps to combat hair loss and improve the volume and appearance of hair. The therapy is painless and has no known side effects. LLLT has been approved by the FDA as a hair loss treatment for both men and women. It is mainly used to treat androgenetic alopecia or what’s often referred to as male or female pattern-baldness.
How LLLT works
The laser light that’s used in LLLT produces a particular wavelength, which has a unique ability to be absorbed by the molecules of the hair follicles. The light helps to shift hair follicles into the growth stage in multiple ways.
When it penetrates the scalp, it stimulates the stem cells responsible for the regeneration of the hair follicles, encouraging hair regrowth. The light acts to increase blood flow in the targeted region of the scalp, therefore increasing the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles, causing the hair to grow with greater length and diameter. This helps to produce thicker hair shafts and results in fuller looking hair overall.
What to Realistically Expect
LLLT is incredibly effective at treating the thinner, weaker hair follicles. It has been shown to help make hair grow thicker, stronger, and healthier. And can notably improving the hair’s appearance and volume.
In the course of various studies, LLLT helped to slow down or even stop hair loss in 85% of patients undergoing treatment. Patients also saw new hair growth in 55% of the cases.
6. Intralesional steroid injections for hair loss.
Here the steroid medication is injected directly into skin where the hair loss is present. This is in order to keep the effects of steroids in the area where it is needed and to reduce the chance that side effects might be caused elsewhere in the body from absorption of steroids. Commonly used for alopecia areata scalp /eyebrows.
