Non Surgical Hair Treatments - Know Forms Of Them!

Most of us take our thick hair for granted in our youth and fail to care for them. Not many notice the receding hairline or thinning of hair until it is too late. A hair restoration can bring back the fuller and thicker locks without any invasive surgical treatment. If hair loss bothers you, and you want a treatment that is safer, you can go for nonsurgical treatments.

The great advantage of these procedures is the increase in the density of hair that reverses your age clock back to 10 years. Non - surgical hair restoration treatments are becoming more popular as they are less invasive and safer than surgical treatments. 

There are three common FDA treatments performed for hair restoration: finasteride, minoxidil and low-level laser hair therapy.

  1. Finasteride: This is an oral treatment, and it is available only by prescription. This medicine can be incorporated into your daily routine as supplement. This medication blocks male-type baldness. If taken consistently, this can slowly improve hair thickness and regrowth of hair in the bald area wherever the hair follicles are still active. The overall success rate has been reported as 65 percent. Lesser than 2 percent people experience side effects. The general side effects include erectile dysfunction and low libido. In such cases, the patient will be advised to take half the dosage.
  2. Minoxidil: This is an over-the-counter medication and does not usually requires the prescription. Almost 50 percentage of the users experience regrowth of hair that is shortened due to damage or thicker hair in a few months when applied consistently. This treatment is available in liquid as well as in the form of foam. The liquid form is quite popular as it dries quickly. The patient should apply the liquid on the crown or affected areas once or twice a day.
  3. Laser Therapies:
    • Laser comb: There are many low-intensity laser therapies available that can be done by oneself. The most common being the comb type laser instrument. Most of these work similarly, and they only differ in the number of laser diodes they are built with. The user is directed to use the brush for 15- 20 minutes every day over the affected areas. These instruments cost between Rs. 5000 to Rs.50,000 depending on its effectiveness.
    • Helmet: Many hair loss studios have the laser helmet facility where they have 100 laser diodes built in the instruments. This treatment cost between Rs. 60,000 - Rs. 1,50,000 depending on the effectiveness of the machine. In this, the person is made to sit comfortably for 30minutes to an hour during the treatment. The person can watch TV, read books or rest while the treatment is going on.

- [ 6] moreover, combining lllt with topical minoxidil and oral finasteride may act synergistic to enhance hair regrowth.
- [ 7] due to the known beneficial effect on wound healing, it is conceivable that lllt as an adjunctive therapy in hair transplant surgery may also reduce postoperative shedding, reduce healing time and increased graft patency.

Laser Hair Removal - What All Should You Be Aware About It?

In the modern times, hair removal has become very common. Most people get a hair removal done for fashion reasons, although hair removal is extremely hygienic as well. The common hair removal methods are waxing, shaving or tweezing. The latest and the most effective hair removal method is laser hair removal


  1. Lasers are extremely useful to remove unwanted hair from different parts of the body like the face, the legs, the arms, the underarms, the bikini line, and any other area. Here are a few benefits of laser hair removal:
  2. Laser hair removal can focus on a particular portion of the skin leaving the surrounding areas. It can also remove coarse hair without affecting the skin in the area.
  3. It is a very fast method as each laser pulse takes just a fraction of a second. An upper lip laser hair removal takes about a minute whereas laser hair removal of the back can take almost an hour.
  4. Laser hair removals are mostly permanent after a series of minimum 3 sittings.

What to do before Treatment?

Laser hair removal is just not a method to remove hair, it is a complete treatment. Make sure the person who will conduct the treatment on you is a professional technician or a doctor. 
If you are getting a laser hair removal, abstain from waxing, plucking, or electrolysis for at least six weeks before going through the treatment. Also try to avoid the Sun as that can create certain complications.

What to expect from Treatment?

Before your unwanted hair is removed with laser, it will be trimmed to just a few millimeters right above the skin. The equipment of the laser treatment will adjust to the colour, the thickness, as well as the location of the unwanted hair being treated, along with the skin colour. The technician and you will need to wear eye protection, according to which laser will be used. Your outer skin will also be requiring a coolant gel or device before the treatment takes place. 

After the treatment is done you will be provided with ice packs and anti-inflammatory lotions to relieve the discomfort. Schedule your next sitting after at least six weeks. You will have to keep going for more sittings until hair stops growing.


You might look sunburned after the treatment. Moisturizing will help ease the burnt feeling. Use sunscreen to prevent any colour change of your skin. Some other side effects can be blistering (which is usually very rare), swelling, scarring, or redness.

Hirsutism - How To Manage It?

Women can find unwanted hair growth very embarrassing. This is especially true if she sports hair growth on her face. Excessive hair growth on a woman is also known as hirsutism. This differs from the usual fine 'peach fuzz' that covers the rest of the body. Such hair can be characterized as dark and coarse.

Hirsutism has a number of causes. Some of the most common reasons for this condition are:

Hirsutism often runs in families. Thus if your mother or grandmother suffered from this skin condition, chances are that you may suffer from the same. This is most commonly seen in people from the Mediterranean region and South East Asia.


Hirsutism is also linked to an abnormally high level of male hormones like androgens in the body. This is usually seen in cases where women suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome, Cushing's syndrome or tumours in the adrenal gland.

A shift in hormone levels is also a common side effect of many types of medication. This is typically seen in drugs that include hormones such as anabolic steroids, drugs that spur hair growth and drugs that help with endometriosis

Facial hirsutism can be treated in a number of ways. Some of the ways to remove excess hair are:

This is an easy and quick way to remove unwanted skin. however, it may irritate the skin and with every shave, the hair growth may get coarser.

This is a temporary solution for Hirsutism but may irritate the skin and does not suit dark skinned women.

When done regularly, waxing can reduce the amount of hair growth. However, this is a painful technique and can cause skin inflammation.

-Laser hair treatment
Compared to the above forms of hair removal, laser treatment can remove hair for the longest period of time. However, this is not a permanent solution and can have side effects like the lightening or darkening of the skin.

This is a permanent solution to hirsutism. It can require several sittings and may also lead to scarring or changes in skin colour.

Prescription drugs can also change the way hair grows on the body. However, if you stop using this medication the hair growth will go back to its original form. Birth control pills and anti-androgen blockers are the most common form of prescription drugs used to treat hirsutism.

Hair Fall - How To Control It Through Ayurveda?

Hair fall has a direct impact on the way you feel about yourself, your self esteem and confidence. It is also true that it is a very common problem and can be controlled and stopped completely through proper treatment.

Ayurvedic treatment for hair fall has long term effects and it brings out the best results since the issues get rectified from the inside, preventing them from coming back.
Ayurveda and Hair Loss

According to Ayurveda, hair fall is associated with body type that varies from person to person and also the stability of mind-body structure. Hair is considered a byproduct of bone formation, as stated by Ayurveda. The tissues which are responsible for the development of bones are also responsible for hair growth. Diet, yoga, meditation and medicated herbal oil massage are the Ayurvedic treatments generally recommended for hair loss.
Here are some ways through which Ayurveda addresses the problem of hair fall:
Dietary modifications  - It is important to identify the lifestyle habits that cause hair fall problems. Consumption of alcohol, meat, coffee, tea and smoking are some of these habits. Hair fall can also be aggravated due to intake of too much greasy, spicy, oily, sour, fried and acidic foods.
Here are some ways suggested by Ayurveda to beat hair fall:
1.     Hair growth can be stimulated by drinking fresh juices of Pomegranate, carrot, spinach and Kokam.

2.     Sesame seeds promote hair growth as they are rich in magnesium and calcium.

3.     Cow's Ghee is a trusted remedy to resolve all scalp-related problems.

4.     Green vegetables and fruits are rich in fiber and hence help in preventing hair fall.

5.     To make the roots of hair strong, foods rich in vitamin C, vitamin B-complex, sulphur and zinc must be consumed, which are found in whole grains, soybeans, buttermilk, nuts and milk.

6.     Yoga and meditation: Inverted asanas help in stimulating the blood flow to the head. Additionally, practicing deep breathing exercises to control anxiety, stress and keep the mind balanced is also advisable.

7.     Ayurvedic herbs and medicated oil: Bhringaraaja, Brahmi, Amla, Neem, Ritha and Ashwagandha are some ayurvedic herbs rich in essential nutrients that help in reducing stress and promoting hair growth.

Different types of oils including coconut oil, brahmi oil, amla oil or mustard oil are useful to control hair fall.

Cell Active Therapy - How Can It Enhance Your Hair?

Cell Active Therapy - How Can It Enhance Your Hair?

Whether you’re a man or a woman, whether you have long tresses or a short crop, no one likes the thought of going bald. Hair loss can be caused by a number of factors. It may be in your genes, it could be because of your lifestyle or it could even be the result of hormonal changes. Thankfully, you don’t have to just sit back and watch yourself grow bald, you can treat it.

Cell active therapy is a form of treatment that is aimed at boosting new hair growth. This can be used to treat receding hairline, bald patches, thinning hair and alopecia. Cell active therapy is called so because it activates cells in the scalp and hair follicles by stimulating blood circulation. As the hair follicles are energized, new hair growth is triggered. It also stimulates collagen production that improves skin tone and elasticity. Cell active therapy does not require hospitalization of any kind. All you need is a dermaroller.

What is a dermaroller?

A dermaroller is a simple device that looks a lot like a round bristled brush on a long handle. Instead of bristles to untangle your hair, this has metal pins that can make tiny pinpricks on your scalp. The width of a dermaroller ranges from 0.25mm to 0.5mm with the latter being more popular. This penetrates only as far as your dermal layer to stimulate blood circulation and new cell production. Using a dermaroller is relatively painless.

Using the dermaroller

Before you use a dermaroller, it is essential to clean your scalp properly and clean the dermaroller. The dermaroller must be sanitized with boiling hot water each time it is used to reduce the chances of infection. If you already have a scalp infection, do not use a dermaroller until the infection clears up. Once the dermaroller has cooled down; run it over the bald areas of your scalp. You will need to apply a light pressure so as to allow the pins to penetrate your scalp without drawing blood.

A dermaroller can be used indefinitely, but you should start seeing an improvement in your hair growth quite soon.
