03 dermatologist recommended anti hair fall treatments
Excessive fall has been a perennial problem for adult men and women. While both male and female pattern baldness can be caused due to hereditary, certain medications or conditions like PCOS and menopause for women, it is a known fact that drastic change in our lifestyle is also highly responsible for hair loss. Treatments like hair straightening and keratin procedures when done without consulting a trichologist can also really harm the hair and lead to hair fall.
To top it all, the pandemic has not been kind to both our skin and hair. Many of my patients have been complaining of rampant hair fall which can be attributed to increase in stress and lack of hair care when at home. So are there any solutions to combat hair fall?
In my opinion, some simple tips at home like keeping your scalp clean, following a nutritious diet and taking measures to reduce stress can help to a great extent. But to address chronic hair loss, one needs to opt for anti hair fall treatments recommended by their dermatologist.
Here are my top 03 treatments to ensure healthy and long hair:
Low Level Laser Hair Therapy
Low Level Laser Hair Therapy is a time tested procedure in the field of dermatology that stimulates hair follicles to enter the growth phase from dormancy and prolongs the growth phase of the hair. It is also very effective in preventing premature aging of the follicle and increases the strength of the hair by increasing the anchoring of hair filaments.
The procedure is also called an office time procedure as it can be performed very quickly. It is both non-invasive and painless. And when done under the guidance of an expert, the treatment shows results within 12 to 26 weeks with reduced hair fall and noticeable hair growth.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
PRP and PRF are two well known procedures to treat male and female pattern hair loss. While PRP in the traditional methods, PRF is classified to be the advanced version or second generation PRP.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) takes platelets from your blood. These platelets are enriched by a range of growth factors namely chemokines, cytokines, and other plasma proteins. These growth factors aid in activation and proliferation of stem cells thus improving hair growth and preventing hair loss. PRP also stimulates the blood flow which in turn improves the diameter of the hair follicle. The treatment also enhances the quality of the hair fiber and reduces dry and frizzy hair.
PRF, on the other hand, uses platelets along with its natural scaffold of fibrin and fibrinogen matrix. Research has found this procedure to be even more effective than traditional platelet-rich plasma.
Both the procedures are minimally painful and do not require anesthesia. At Dr. Divya’s Skin and Hair Solutions Clinic, we use an internationally acclaimed marvel of German bioengineering known as Arthrex PRP system to perform both PRP and PRF procedures. The entire process is safe and highly result oriented.
Mesotherapy is known for improving skin’s glow and texture but this non-invasive procedure also helps in preventing hair loss. It uses a conjunction of enzymes and nutrients that is injected in the area of the scalp with scanty hair. The procedure takes about 30-45 mins and is very effective with other procedures like PRP.
