How To Treat Hair Loss With Non-Surgical Treatment- Prp And Mesotherapy

Due to the alarming increase in a number of people complaining of hair loss problems nowadays, hair replacement is no longer a new thing. The change in appearance due to balding may because of emotional stress since appearances can very often affect the success of an individual in the social and business worlds. Do you desire a full looking, thick scalp, however, consider a surgical hair transplant too heavy on the pocket, invasive, or extreme? A surgical hair transplant would not wind up in more hair, just more evenly placed strands. It usually means repeated surgeries that can burn a hole in your pocket, making non-surgical treatments an attractive alternative.

A mind-boggling amount of foams, shampoos, devices, supplements and pills are accessible to the common population today, guaranteeing to prevent hair loss, and some claim to even fortify hair development. But finally, non-surgical hair replacement has come to the rescue, to save individuals suffering from androgenic baldness from itchy wigs, ill-fitting headpieces and invasive surgical transplants.

As with any procedure which requires going under a knife, the odds of the occurrence of complications and side effects are always a plausibility. While surgical strategies aim to camouflage the issue, non-surgical methods focus on solving the issue at its root, thus preventing further loss in the future. Hence for individuals less than thrilled with the side effects linked to surgical options, non-surgical options such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Mesotherapy could serve to be a good choice.

 

PLATELET RICH PLASMA

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is an outpatient non-surgical procedure which requires little to no downtime. The process begins with extracting a small amount of blood from the patient, separating the platelet-rich plasma from the remaining parts of the blood. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the scalp under influence of a topical anaesthesia. The microneedle causes the cells of the scalp to naturally heal and thrive The PRP also contains valuable growth factors that help accelerate the speed of regeneration. PRP also stimulates blood flow to the area, providing the hair follicles with vital nutrients and oxygen leading to healthier, thicker and stronger hair. It is an injectable treatment using the patient’s own blood, making it a safe and natural treatment option. PRP Therapy stimulates inactive follicles and leads to active growth, making it a highly desirable treatment to restore hair. It takes about an hour for the completion of the procedure once the blood is withdrawn, and effects last upto a year or two. Studies show that hair is regrown by 30-40% by the end of 3 months since the procedure was undertaken.

It is important to keep in mind that PRP therapy, similar to most other treatments responds well only to a specified wide range of candidates, and has its exceptions. PRP would not be effective if hair is completely absent. It improves the growth of existing hair, reduces hair fall and avoids thinning, giving the scalp a naturally fuller look. It is a procedure simply used to kick-start the hair growth process. This therapy cannot do anything without having hair follicles to work in the first place.

The PRP Therapy apart from helping in the hair fall treatment process also has used in cosmetic skin treatments. The popularly known ‘Vampire Facial’ is basically a PRP therapy due to use of individual’s own blood in the facial.

The cost of PRP therapy is in the range of 10,000-15,000 in India but could be much higher in countries abroad. Almost anybody suffering from hair loss is a candidate for PRP. There’s also no real risks involved apart from the pain caused by the injections, which are also numbed by anaesthesia.

 

MESOTHERAPY

Mesotherapy is a non-invasive non-surgical cosmetic hair restoration procedure. Superficial microinjections are injected into the scalp to encourage the hair’s natural regeneration process. The specialized cocktail of nutrients injected can contain a vast range of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, nucleic acids and coenzymes, tailored individually to the requirements of each person. The treatment is safe and painless, and no numbing materials are required. Mesotherapy brings vitamins and necessary nutrients to the surroundings of the follicle, where it is required for the nourishment of the follicles. Over time, mesotherapy will neutralize DHT hormone in the scalp, stimulate blood circulation, and lets the hair follicle grow and thrive.

The theory behind the treatment is based on the understanding that most hair problems are a result of inadequate nutrients, decreased blood circulation to the scalp and excess production of hormone DHT which aids in hair loss. This can be treated by the microinjections which act like a medicinal bullet targeted directly to the specific tissues in the body.

Chances of successful results are 92% as compared to drugs such as Minoxidil which has a mere success rate of 50%. The treatment takes about 10 to 30 minutes per session, depending on the extent of the area requiring treatment. A minimum of 10 sessions are required, with treatment every 2 weeks for the first 2-3 months and sessions gradually decreased. Results can be seen within 2-3 months of the treatment. In order to maintain the good results, touch up maintenance treatments are required every 2-3 months.
