Laser Hair Therapy is a non-chemical, non-invasive treatment that is being used for the treatment of hair loss. Like other treatments (such as Propecia and Minoxidil), some patients tend to respond better than others. In general, it seems that patients who 'have more hair' (perhaps in early stages of hair loss) tend to have better results.
Today, there are several non-surgical options available for hair restoration or hair regrowth, ranging from hair products such as pills and creams to injections.
However, it is recommended that you stick to tried and tested medications and treatments. Determining which type of medicine or combination of medicines is appropriate for you usually depend on your age, severity of hair loss, and budget.
Some of the popular medications include:
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical procedure currently being used to combat hair loss and promote hair growth. Already widely used by physicians and dermatologists to decrease the look of cellulite and smooth the skin, mesotherapy has most recently been adapted to treat alopecia, or hair loss. A mixture of vitamins, minerals and/or DHT blockers is injected into the layer of fat under the skin in order to stimulate hair growth, and possibly reverse hair loss. Proponents of mesotherapy believe that these injections will increase blood circulation to the weakened or dormant hair follicles, and replace the vitamins and minerals that we lose with age, thus curbing hair loss and encouraging new hair growth. Mesotherapy, and its maintenance period, requires a long-term commitment on the patient’s part. The initial treatment requires eight to twelve series micro-injections, followed by maintenance treatments.
Hair loss and Hair regrowth can be treated by a new innovative and totally safe treatment: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment. This method uses the patient’s plasma which is rich in platelets and growth factors. During the session, plasma is injected in the areas with a hair loss problem, and activates the stem cells. Growth factors are proteins that have regenerating properties and are part of our body. These proteins have the ability to restore damaged tissues and reactivate primitive pluripotent stem cells. With PRP hair loss treatment, growth factors multiply, activating more stem cells. In this way, the function of hair follicles is restored in the area where the injection is done, causing the growth of new hair. PRP hair loss treatment also prevents hair loss, and strengthens existing hair. After hair transplant, PRP hair loss treatment can be applied in the area of transplantation as well as in the donor area, enhancing the healing process and maximizing the result of hair growth.
Process of PRP hair loss treatment The procedure of the treatment is: •The doctor takes a small amount of blood from the patient •Centrifuge is performed at specific speed, temperature and time in order to isolate platelet-rich plasma (PRP). •PRP is activated with DNA activators and enriched with calcium ions. •The plasma is injected in the areas with hair loss problem with the method of mesotherapy. It is repeated every 2 to 3 weeks during depending on the UNDERLYING Hair condition, and then once a year for maintenance. The treatment can be applied both to men and women. Apart from androgenetic alopecia PRP hair loss treatment can be applied with satisfying results in alopecia areata, in any kind of diffuse alopecia and is ideal for preventing hair loss, when applied even before thinning hair is visible. The results are totally natural, and there are no side effects, as long as the treatment is performed by specialised and experienced doctors.
Custom-made hair pieces can meet the requirements of patients who may not be good candidates for hair restoration surgery.
