When it comes to knowing the different therapies associated with hair loss treatments, one will know how each works effectively to enable speedy recovery of a patient undergoing therapy. Physicians have tested some of these therapies and decided on which ones are most suitable in addressing hair loss or treatment of baldness. For some of these therapies, repeat treatments are highly required weekly for approximately six (6) months or thereabout and which is dependent on the extent of hair loss. Patients are usually given specific hair care and hair re-growth products for at-home use, in combination with the laser therapy, to try and achieve the best results possible. The usual interest in the use of therapies for hair loss lies in its help at enabling a speedy recovery for those who have undergone hair surgical treatments. Below are some of the therapies for hair loss:
Prp therapy (Platelet Rich plasma therapy):
In hair restoration parlance, evidence has been said to basically support the PRP therapy as a promising treatment alternative to promote the growth of lost hair. However, no serious claim can be made of its efficacy or full effectiveness even in the medical field. Since PRP it is not fully verifiable as to its ability to fully restore lost hair, PRP is practically not meant to replace other approved therapies like the DHT blockers and Minoxidil. However, it still maintains its position as the most promising non-surgical therapeutic option for those patients suffering from baldness or hair loss conditions. One would find quite a number of clinics performing the PRP therapy for stimulation of hair growth, as a proactive therapeutic option for both male and female patients experiencing hair loss problems. On the other hand, current scientific research as well as technology has provided the medical community with new level of understanding associated with wound and tissue restoration. Due to this reason, PRP is thus recognised as an all-natural autologous clinical procedure performed under the expertise of clinical physicians for skin, scalp and hair stimulation in hair loss patients. PRP has practically been used a known medial adjunct therapy for over two decades and counting, as it has established itself to be highly effective as a clinical treatment modality in certain fields of medicine like oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, orthopaedics etc.
This is known as a non-surgical way of restoring thinning follicles called “photo-bio-stimulation”. The use of the laser hair restoration will not bring dead hair follicles back to life but it will help stimulate follicles which are in the state of decline and makes existing hair in patients thicker and fuller. Clinical physicians use laser therapy to treat the genetic forms of hair loss to include andro-genetic alopecia or pattern baldness, which are said to be common in both men and women. A laser therapy will basically cost around 40,000-50,000 rupees, which is dependent on the surgeon and location of clinic. The low level laser therapy is also called red light therapy, cold laser, soft laser, bio-stimulation as well as photo-bio-modulation, and while the LLLT’s known chemical and physical effects have invariably occurred with new hair growth being attributed to it, no effects have been shown as the primary effect in the stimulation new hair growth.
Stem cell therapy:
It has been said that the research on follicular stem cells may practically lead to numerous successes in the treatment of baldness or hair loss through hair multiplication, also known as hair cloning. Subsequent studies have also shown treatments carried out using adipose-derived stem cells, which had increased the number of hairs, and may be a future treatment for hair loss. Adipose-derived stem cells secrete various growth factors that promote hair growth.
