Hair Loss (Alopecia)
Hair fall is the most common problem these days. Based on whether permanent damage has occurred to the hair follicles, alopecia is divided into scarring and non scarring. Commonest type of non-scarring alopecia is androgenetic alopecia (AGA). AGA refers to hair loss seen with increasing age in genetically predisposed individuals.
Alopecia may be diffuse or patchy. Most common cause of diffuse alopecia is telogen effluvium which is the loss of telogen hair that occurs 2-4 months after an acute stressful episode, Eg: 3-4 months post surgery or accidents. The other causes of diffuse alopecia are postpartum alopecia which occurs 1-3 months after delivery in most women, drug induced alopecia, alopecia associated with systemic diseases and hair shaft defects.
Patchy alopecia occurs in alopecia areata, fungal, bacterial and viral infections of scalp, trichotillomania and traction alopecia. We offer a stepwise approach to restore lost hair:
Correction of deficiency, life-style modification, treatment of infection
Platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP)
Platelets are tiny cells in your blood that repair damaged blood vessels and stop bleeding after injuries. They are virtual powerhouses, rich in growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle stem cells to divide and thicken the miniature hairs. Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated form of your own platelets, obtained from your blood. It is delivered to the stem cells of the hair by the process of miniaturization at the hair root. In combination with medical treatment in the form of lotions or foams and oral medications including dietary supplements, PRP treatments boost re-growth and restore more hair than was thought possible before its usage.
PRP works effectively for genetic or patterned hair loss as an adjuvant treatment. It is absolutely safe procedure suitable for both males and females.
Mesotherapy, a technique involving injections of natural plant extracts, vitamins, or medicines directly into the head to rejuvenate and tighten skin, as well as remove excess fat. It helps to gradually restore hormonal balance and neutralizes the effects of DHT hormone leading to accelerated growth of new hair strands.
Microneedling is the procedure used to prevent the hair loss. In this fine needles are rolled over the skin to puncture the stratum corneum can also help induce stem cells in the scalp that lead to hair growth.
