It is an overall comprehensive approach adopted by skilled and specialist Doctors after a thorough diagnosis and the requirement of the patient suffering from the baldness. During the treatment, our professionals follow multifarious and systematic strategy to control and reduce the baldness which generally differs from one patient to other.
Hair Restoration Treatment basically involves following four practices:
There are many types of medicines used. Medicines like Finasteride specifically for males, Minoxidil, Dutasteride, Corticosteroids injection etc. Some are used for growth of follicles whereas some other are used to prevent the androgenetic hormone.
Non-surgical Treatment: This treatment includes PRP treatment, SMP treatment etc.
In PRP treatment, a small quantity of blood is removed and then the highly concentrated PRP is injected into the scalp. PRP is very much rich in growth factors which are helpful in growing new follicles.
SMP or Scalp Micro Pigmentation treatment; where natural pigments are used at the epidermal level to replicate the natural appearance of real follicles. This is not only beneficial for baldness but also for hiding scars of scalp.
Low level of laser therapy increases blood circulation and prevent clogging in follicles which ultimately promotes hair growth.
Treatment includes Hair Transplant procedure such as FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).
Patches, wig etc are artificial treatments used to hide baldness.
This treatment also involves implanting synthetic fibers into scalp by using local anesthesia (synthetic fibers- made up of acrylics or human hair)
