Hair Transplant in Mumbai
Different people have different expectations of a hair loss treatment. Many people think that Hair Transplant means undergoing medical treatment & yet others think that it is the same as putting on a wig. As a Hair Restoration physician, we must guide you about the complete range of treatments for hair loss:
Firstly, it should be understood that hair transplantation is an out-patient, surgical procedure performed by licensed surgeons and an experienced team that moves individual hair follicles from a part of your body, known as the ‘donor site’, and implants it on a balding part of your body, which is the ‘recipient site’. We usually take hair follicles from the back of the head, also known as “Occipital region” and transfer it to the top of your head (Bald area). This procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and is minimally invasive. The duration of surgery may vary from 4-8 hours depending on the number of grafts to be transplanted. The hair grows in a group of one to four hairs, known as a follicular unit.
In hair restoration surgery like hair transplant, we transplant these follicular units by using either FUE or FUT methods. These state-of-the-art hair transplantation techniques achieve a natural appearance, one that looks identical to how your hair used to look. This is what we’re known for around the world and why our hair loss treatment in Agra for men and women is considered by many experts to be the best around.
Hairloss Types & Treatments
It is a minimally invasive surgical treatment to address the problem of baldness. Here, hair follicles are removed from the ‘donor site’, typically at the back of the head and transplanted to the ‘recipient site’, typically at the front of the scalp. It comprises of majorly two procedures – Linear Excision Method (previously, Follicular Unit Transplantation) or Follicular Unit Excision (FUE).
Mesotherapy means injecting something in the mesoderm. Initially being used rampantly for fat reduction (lipolysis) and has come into use for hair loss treatment in Agra as well.
The scientific basis for mesotherapy: To provide nourishment in the form of vitamin boosters and growth factors to hair roots to increase the rate of hair growth. This specific treatment and part of the overall hair restoration procedures transform the weak roots into healthy ones to produce healthy hair. The quality of hair is also enhanced by using various cocktails of serums.
How to give Mesotherapy?
Nappage technique: This is done by 1 ml syringe. Here, various growth factors, hair vitalisers, vitamins such as biotin, vitamin H etc are deposited in the scalp near the hair roots in a shorter period within a larger area.
Popular technique: A bit painful and so, an anaesthetic gel may be applied before (the doctor will explain to you the protocol as well as the procedure). It’s a very good technique used for depositing the serums, vitamins etc in a bolus amount adjacent to the hair roots.
After derma rollers: The basic serums and solutions that are used in nappage and papular techniques are applied to the scalp after the procedure of derma rollers as explained below.
Dermarollers are microneedles on small roller tools. The length of these needles varies from 0.25 mm to 2.00 mm. When used in the condition of hair loss (thinning of hair), the 0.5 or 0.75 mm rollers are used over the scalp with determined direction and hold.
The micro-needling triggers hair growth by physical mechanism as well as by the special cocktails of serums and vitamins which are applied after the rollers are done.
Laser Therapy (igrow): The laser comb or laser cap is the first and only home-used medical laser device that has been clinically proven and FDA cleared, for men and women, to stimulate your scalp and promote hair growth. The device is a hand-held instrument that you’ll need to use for 10-15 minutes a day, three times a week. It is cordless and comes with easy-to-use features providing the convenience of hair restoration services for men.
How does PRP work?
Patients who are good candidates for a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection want to prevent continuing hair loss and are currently experiencing a lot of miniaturized (thinned out) hair.
A non-surgical solution and part of the hair loss treatment in Agra, PRP is not a pharmaceutical or a drug, but a Medical Device sanctioned by the FDA for use in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Structurally, PRP is a biomatrix that repairs and remodels damaged tissues.
