Hair loss, medically termed alopecia, is one of the most common concerns among many men and women that only dermatologists can diagnose and treat. It can be temporary or permanent and can happen due to lot many reasons including an operation, high fever, chemotherapy for cancer; tight hairstyles, genetics, head injury, scalp infections, autoimmune diseases or other illnesses, poor hair care, hormonal fluctuations, nutrient deficiency, stress, and certain medications. It shows up in different ways such as bald spots, receding hairline, and overall hair thinning. Thankfully, Dr. Keerthana Kalva, one of the best dermatologist in Hyderabad, India at Inform Clinics has the expertise and advanced tools in their clinic to spot the root cause of hair loss in their patients. With early diagnosis, they can provide more successful treatments.
While hair can naturally grow back on its own in the majority of cases of hair loss, Dr. Keerthana Kalva can provide treatments to allow quick hair growth or prevent further hair loss. Here are the most popular non-invasive treatment options for hair loss offered by Dr. Keerthana Kalva, at Inform Clinics, the best dermatology clinic in Hyderabad.
PRP or Growth Factor Treatment
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an FDA-approved, injectable natural/regenerative medicine enriched with growth factors and essential proteins which are harnessed from the blood. It aids in the acceleration of the natural healing response of the body. The treatment involves drawing of the patient’s blood, spinning out the blood in a centrifuge machine, the extraction of the platelets in a plasma base, filling of PRP in sterile injections, and finally the injecting of PRP into the areas of hair loss. The entire procedure lasts for about 10 minutes and is usually not associated with any downtime. Depending upon the severity of hair loss, the patient needs multiple PRP sessions (3 to 6) usually spaced a month apart to achieve the optimal dramatic results. Within 3 months, the expected new and fresher hair growth begins to be noticeable. Follow-up sessions are also needed to maintain the results.
In this hair loss treatment, the dermatologist at Inform Clinics makes use of a micro-needling device containing hundreds of tiny long needles at one end with depth sizes ranging from less than 1 to a few millimeters. When this device is used on the targeted sites of hair loss, it creates multiple micro holes in the skin which can work as open channels for better delivery and absorption of hair growth solutions such as minoxidil, Platelet-rich plasma, and topical corticosteroids. Prior to this treatment, the scalp is kept numb by applying a topical anesthetic. The actual time required to complete the treatment is based on the size of the treatment area, but usually, it gets over in about 10 minutes. Following the micro-needling session, the patients can expect to see hair growth in 3 to 6 months. When this treatment is used in combination with alopecia, it results in improved hair thickness, hair density, and the quality of hair growth.
Mesotherapy is a promising hair loss solution where dermatologists infuse into the scalp a cocktail of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and many other substances that are necessary for hair regrowth. Generally, a special mesotherapy gun is used for the procedure to inject the nutrient-rich liquid into the mesoderm of the scalp. This is a customizable treatment method as the hair expert selects for appropriate cocktail injection as per the patient’s scalp condition and needs. There are a lot many ingredients for mesotherapy injections available usually including botanical extracts that contain stem cell growth factor which encourages hair growth. This treatment helps in nourishing the hair follicles to easily settle the nutrients in the hair, thus thickening the hair, strengthening the hair, and preventing future hair loss due to nutrient deficiency. It manages to stop hair loss by reducing the micro-inflammation around the hair follicles. The procedure is safe as the injected liquid material contains tissue-friendly materials and does not cause any allergic reactions. To visualize the desired results, at least eight sittings may be needed within an interval of a week, but it is worth it!
