PRP for hair loss
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is the liquid portion of whole blood or processed blood plasma. The whole blood contains three layers of cells; red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Plasma is the liquid portion of whole blood, which has white blood cells and platelets; which are separated as poor plasma and rich plasma. Hence Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is processed blood plasma.
PRP is a medical treatment for hair loss which contains a high concentration of platelets.
PRP treatment is a revolutionary hair growth procedure with the concept of cellular biology, where the body’s own healing properties, stimulate hair follicles for the growth of healthy and thick hair. Platelets contain healing growth factors and may act as a trigger for natural hair growth. PRP once injected increases blood supply to the hair follicle to maintain the growth and also in turn increases the thickness of the hair shaft. Photon-micro-needling and low-level laser are often combined with PRP, to enhance the results.

Mesotherapy for hair loss
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical technique that uses injections of vitamins, amino acids, hormones, enzymes, and plant extracts to rejuvenate, tighten skin, and remove excess fat. Mesotherapy is the most popular treatment performed throughout Europe, was developed by France doctor Michael Pistor in 1952. The original purpose was to relieve the pain.
Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure where a series of micro-injection is delivered into the mesoderm or middle layer of skin.
Mesotherapy for hair loss
Mesotherapy in hair loss, the professionals uses very fine needles to deliver the ingredients into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and tissue underneath the skin. The most common cause of hair loss is due to lack of proper nutrients; reduce blood circulation and hormonal factors. Mesotherapy can deliver the exact nutrient to the right place around the hair follicles, where it is really needed. Mesotherapy can also increase circulation, reduces the inflammation, and even counteract the excess of DHT in the underlying tissues of the scalp. Hence, mesotherapy can stimulate the hair follicle and effectively treat hair loss in both men and women
Mesotherapy is a supportive treatment to the traditional, medical, or other interventional therapy for hair loss due to male or female pattern hair loss.
To treat alopecia or hair loss vitamins, minerals, natural plant extracts, or medicines such as minoxidil and finasteride are injected into the scalp. Mesotherapy reduces hair loss, aids hair growth, and inhibits the further process of male or female pattern baldness.
Dermaroller For Hair Loss
Dermaroller is a handheld roller-device with multiple tiny micro-needles. The needles range from 0.25 mm to 1.5mm in length.
This process is also known as micro-needling. Micro-needling utilizes a stamp or roller. Dermaroller needles create micro-holes on the scalp, the skin-deep dermis to stimulate the production of new cells and boost circulation. Dermaroller for hair loss is used as supportive treatment to traditional minoxidil and finasteride medicines or to other interventional treatments such as mesotherapy, low-level laser therapy, or PRP. The controlled injury creates micro-channels and assists in faster absorption of injected PRP or meso solutions and other products used on the scalp.
Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment that has been used for decades to rejuvenate the skin. As it stimulates collagen production, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks. Dermaroller or micro-needling not only treats hair loss but by inducing the production of new collagen and elastin it improves the texture and firmness of the skin.
Photon Micro-needling (PMNT), combines’ conventional micro-needling with the added benefit of LED light therapy, photon therapy is used to stimulate the biological activity of the skin at the cellular level.
We at Clear Skin & Hair Rich advise photon micro-needling therapy (PMNT) due to the dual benefits of derma roller and low-level laser therapy. We at our center sterilize the kits and re-use to avoid infection and ask the patients to come to the clinic for the same.
LOW-LEVEL LASER THERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) known as “cold laser therapy” because the level of light is low which isn’t enough to heat your body’s tissue. LLLT is a form of light treatment for hair loss in men and women. This is an FDA-cleared solution that uses clinical-strength laser technology, for genetic or hereditary; male and female pattern hair loss.
LLLT is also known as Photobiomodulation (PBM Therapy), photobiostimulation, red light therapy; use of photons at a non-thermal irradiance to alter biological activity. LLLT uses either coherent light sources (lasers) or non-coherent light sources consisting of filtered lamps or light-emitting diodes (LED) or, on occasion, a combination of both and the wavelength used are 420,530,590,640,670,880. LLLT involves exposing cells or tissue to low levels of red and near-infrared (NIR) light and over injuries or lesions to improve wound and soft tissue healing, reduce inflammation and give relief for both acute and chronic pain.
The LLLT irradiates diode rays, which penetrate the scalp to treat hair loss. LLLT for hair loss emits the wavelength of infrared light is 630-670 nanometres
The LLLT treatment is non-invasive, safe, and pain-free light technology to stimulate the hair follicle. It’s a supportive evidence-based therapy to the supplementary or medicines such as minoxidil and finasteride. However, it is non-invasive to other interventional treatments (mesotherapy, PRP, or hair transplant) of hair loss.
LLLT used in a coherent light source such as 308 Excimer, targeted Phototherapy (Daavlin), helium-neon (632.8 nm), and fractional erbium-glass (1550 nm). This explains the extensive use of these devices in hair growth.
LLLT is advised twice or thrice a week for a period of 3 to 9 months. Professionals therapy at a medical centre and handheld at home are administer respectively, for a period of 10 to 15 minutes the scalp is exposed to laser-emitting diodes.
Regenera Activa is a revolutionary new tool that has been developed for the clinical application of regenerative procedures using autologous micrografts that are obtained from the same patient.
Regenera Activa is an innovative system for obtaining, processing, and administering cells in order to stimulate hair growth in androgenic alopecia.
Regenera Activa is the latest non-surgical hair growth treatment that is based on capillary regenerative therapy. Regenera Activa is a one-hour painless procedure and needs to be done only one-time. This is extremely safe since the stem cells are taken from the patient’s own body, and the regenericons used are US FDA approved.
The Regenera Activa is the most popular one-time hair re-growth treatment that works by stimulating hair growth through regeneration therapy of capillary vessels. This is a very safe treatment since the patient himself is the donor and recipient of micrograft (stem cells) that are used in the procedure, the recipient is benefitted from the regenerative activity of progenitor cells and growth factors that are extracted for the donor site.
Targeted phototherapy (also called concentrated phototherapy, focused phototherapy, and micro phototherapy) is a new form of phototherapy which seeks to overcome some of the disadvantages with conventional phototherapy. This modality involves the application of light energy directly focused on or targeted at the lesion through special delivery mechanisms such as fiberoptic cables.
The term “targeted phototherapy” includes different technologies such as
Excimer laser (308 nm), intense pulse light systems, and non-laser ultraviolet light sources are the improved version of hand-held delivery systems.
Targeted phototherapy is an exciting new technology in the management of several dermatological and hair conditions. Their main advantages are safety, ease of administration and suitability for difficult to treat areas and in children
Targeted phototherapy is effective for patchy hair loss or alopecia areata non-scarring alopecia that results from a hyperactive immune response of T cells against hair follicles. It is also can be used for hair loss related to inflammatory dandruff.
We at Clear Skin Centre use the most advanced Daavlin non-chromatic ultraviolet light sources.
Daavlin Targeted Phototherapy the world’s most advanced treatment with a UVB wavelength of 290-310nm targeting the only affected skin. It is most effective, quick and needs only a few treatment sessions (once in 4 or 7days for a period of 2 to 4 months)
A patented feature of this device is a fiber optic brush that delivers UVB directly to the scalp through an array of bristles in a footprint that measures 2 x 10 cm. For the treatment of other areas of the body, there is an interchangeable spotlight that can deliver energy in a variety of beam shapes.
