Hair Growth with Medicines

Dr Prayas Kumar
Best Plastic Surgery in Surat
Due to false but abundant marketing in newspapers and television, people spend money on various types of medicines and oils. If treated early with the help of a plastic surgeon, many patients can regain their hair with medication alone. Thus, hair loss is an ongoing process. So the more the patient delays in taking scientifically proven medicines, the more he loses his hair. Till date, there is no oil in the world that can revive dead hair follicles (roots). So without wasting time, taking the first treatment from a plastic surgeon can benefit from the first medicine for hair loss. Hair transplant is not the only treatment in every case, drugs are also very effective, but it takes at least three to four months for good results, and as long as the drug is continued, its effect remains. After stopping the drug, according to the genetic basis, the body begins to thin its hair and avoid it. But since these medicines have no side effects, there is no harm in taking them for a long time. The medicine is scientifically proven to make hair thicker, denser, and longer.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) hair growth treatment is a medical procedure that aims to stimulate hair growth using a patient's own blood. Here's how the process generally works:

1. Initial Consultation: You would typically start by consulting with a qualified medical professional, such as a dermatologist or a hair restoration specialist. They will evaluate your hair loss condition, medical history, and assess whether you're a suitable candidate for PRP treatment.

2. Blood Collection: During the treatment session, a small amount of your blood is drawn, usually from your arm, similar to a regular blood test. The blood is then processed in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other components of the blood.

3. Platelet-Rich Plasma Preparation: The separated platelet-rich plasma is collected and concentrated to increase its platelet count. Platelets contain various growth factors that are believed to promote hair growth.

4. Scalp Injections: Once the PRP is prepared, it is injected directly into the scalp in the areas where hair loss or thinning has occurred. In some cases, a local anesthetic might be used to minimize discomfort during the injections.

5. Post-Treatment Care: After the PRP injections, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, or soreness in the treated areas. The recovery time is generally minimal, and you can usually resume your regular activities shortly after the procedure. Your healthcare provider may provide specific instructions on post-treatment care.

The exact treatment protocol, including the number of sessions and the interval between treatments, can vary depending on the individual's needs and the healthcare provider's recommendations.

It's important to note that while PRP hair growth treatment has gained popularity, the scientific evidence supporting its effectiveness is still limited. Results can vary between individuals, and additional research is ongoing to better understand its benefits and optimize the treatment.
Laser Comb and Laser Helmets
Dr Prayas Kumar
Best Plastic Surgery in Surat
Laser combs and laser helmets are two types of devices used for low-level laser therapy (LLLT) in the treatment of hair loss. These devices use low-intensity lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to stimulate hair growth.
Laser Comb:
A laser comb is a handheld device that resembles a regular comb or brush. It is embedded with low-level lasers or LEDs along the teeth or bristles. When you run the comb through your hair, the lasers or LEDs emit light energy onto your scalp, aiming to stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. The recommended usage is typically a few minutes per day, several times per week.
Laser Helmet:
A laser helmet is a headgear-like device that contains multiple lasers or LEDs positioned inside the helmet. You wear it on your head, and the lasers or LEDs emit light directly onto your scalp. The design allows for more comprehensive coverage of the scalp compared to a laser comb. Typically, laser helmets are used for a specified duration per session, a few times per week.
