How your hair loss or baldness is completely reversible (non-surgically)
Having deeply researched hair loss, I have devised a solution to promote hair growth. I would like to share with you how it happens in two parts.
Here's part 1
Is your hair fall normal or abnormal (excessive)?
Average daily normal hair fall is 100-150 and anything above that are considered abnormal hair fall.
What causes abnormal hair fall?
Males: males pattern hair loss (most common cause), telogen effluvium, stress, smoking, etc.
Females: chronic telogen effluvium (most common cause), female pattern hair loss, pregnancy-induced, stress, due to medicines like cancer therapy, cosmetic procedures - straightening, rebonding etc,
How does hair loss affect us?
Destroys looks and confidence
Affects social life
Causes inferiority complex
What are effective and scientifically proven treatments for hair loss?
Minoxidil, amenexil tablets
Hair transplant, scalp reduction surgery
Platelet rich plasma (prp), dermaroller (microneedling)
Apart from this, multivitamins, stem cell therapy and various other treatments done have no scientific proof for giving best results.
What is the best non-surgical treatment?
'innovative prp' with derma roller is by far the most effective (research method by Dr. Jeetendra khatuja).
What is prp?
Platelet-rich plasma (prp); an autologus solution (made with patient's own blood) hence it is completely safe and with no side effects. Prp is an effective concentration of multiple growth factors (present in platelets like pdgf, vegf, egf, etc) which stimulate hair follicles to grow.
How does prp work?
Prp contains a high concentration of special cells called platelets (with multiple growth factors) in prp stimulate roots of hair follicles to promote hair re-growth.
During hair loss, the length and diameter of hair reduce and hair enter a 'resting stage' or 'arrested growth stage'. When an enough number of hair enter this stage, scalp becomes visible producing 'baldness'.
Prp causes a shift of hair follicles from 'resting stage' to 'active growth stage', thereby reverses the process of hair loss.
How is prp prepared?
There are various methods for preparing prp, but most of these methods are not effective.
The unique method developed by Dr. Jeetendra khatuja is called 'innovative prp' or iprp.
We draw 8ml of patient's blood and process it in special tubes with the help of centrifuge machine. The method has been standardised over the years for best results.
How prp is given?
Under all safety precautions, the treatment area is numbed under local anesthesia and prp is injected to cover the whole bald area.
What are the risks and side-effects of prp?
There are no risks or side-effects involved since prp is prepared from your own blood.
How long does prp treatment take?
Preparation of prp takes 15-20 minutes and actual treatment takes 10-15 minutes, so the whole treatment takes about 30-40 minutes only.
This is followed by a derma roller treatment, which is explained in part 2.
