Hair loss is a common problem faced by many people and can be caused by a range of factors. However, it doesn’t always mean that those suffering from hair loss cannot solve their issues. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy is a revolutionary treatment that has been found to be an effective solution for androgenetic alopecia and other types of hair loss. With this treatment, you can restore healthy, thick, and shiny-looking locks.

Hair loss and hair thinning

We are witnessing a concerning trend of hair fall and thinning affecting individuals, particularly young boys and girls, at much earlier ages than previously observed in their families. This issue has become increasingly prevalent across all age groups, reflecting the influence of modern lifestyles and genetic factors.

The early onset of hair loss and thinning can be attributed to altered genetic expression and lifestyle changes. Assessing the severity of hair fall should not solely rely on the absolute number of hairs lost per day, as losing even up to 100 hairs daily can be considered normal in theory. However, individual variations exist, and several factors should be considered

If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is advisable to consult a hair specialist to diagnose the underlying cause of excess hair fall or thinning and take appropriate action.

Common causes of hair fall in men and women:

Androgenic Alopecia, also known as Androgenic Hair Fall and Thinning, is primarily influenced by genetic and hormonal factors in both men and women

  1. Men: Testosterone, a male hormone, is typically converted into DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) in the scalp’s skin, particularly near the hair roots. While DHT is a nonfunctional end product meant to be excreted, individuals sensitive to DHT harbor receptors in their hair roots. When DHT binds to these receptors, it triggers negative growth stimulation in the hair root, leading to chemical changes that damage the hair root. This damage manifests as thinning of the hair shaft and eventual loss of the hair root, resulting in permanent hair loss over time.

  2. Women: Normal cyclical hormonal changes play a significant role in hair fall and thinning in females. Conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD or PCOS) are common causes of hair fall in women and may also be associated with unwanted hair growth on the face and the development of acne on the face, shoulders, or back.

  3. Dietary Factors: The quality of food consumed today is compromised due to soil deficiencies in essential nutrients for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian diets. Toxins present in water, pesticides, and antibiotics given to farm animals also affect non-vegetarian food.

  4. Medical Conditions: Conditions such as Diabetes Mellitus and Hypothyroidism, characterized by high blood sugar levels and abnormal thyroxine levels, respectively, negatively impact hair growth and thickness.

  5. Stress and Lifestyle: Stress-induced release of stress hormones affects scalp circulation and hair follicle growth. Unhealthy lifestyle habits, including frequent consumption of fast food, irregular sleep patterns, lack of exercise, and smoking, contribute to hair fall and thinning.

  6. Immunological Conditions: Conditions like Alopecia Areata and Lupus may also cause hair loss and thinning, leading to bald areas over time.

  7. Scalp Conditions: Dandruff and other scalp fungal infections contribute to hair fall and thinning.

  8. Environmental Factors: Hard water, pollution, extended periods in air-conditioned rooms, vitamin deficiencies (such as Vitamins D and B12), recovery from major illnesses or viral infections, weight loss, deficiency of other vitamins and minerals, and the use of certain medications for other health conditions are all well-known contributors to hair fall and thinning.

It is essential to have these factors assessed and evaluated by a qualified doctor before diagnosing and treating hair fall and thinning. At Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Center, the best hair treatment in Pune is provided by reputable board-certified doctors who offer customized solutions for hair loss.

Common Conditions Cured by the Best Hair Treatment in Pune, India

If proper hair care routines are neglected, various problems leading to hair loss may arise in the future. At Authentic Hair Transplant, the premier hair treatment center in Pune, we offer tailored solutions to address issues such as:

  1. Dandruff: Seborrhea, or dandruff, is a scalp condition characterized by the overproduction of skin cells, resulting in flaking, inflammation, itching, and redness. From mild flaking to severe scaly patches, dandruff can vary in severity, with more intense forms known as Seborrheic dermatitis.

  2. Hair Thinning: Typically associated with aging, hair thinning can be caused by hormonal imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, and various other factors as outlined in the “causes of hair fall and thinning” section.

  3. Alopecia Areata: This autoimmune disorder leads to hair loss, presenting as bald patches on the scalp. The condition occurs when the body’s immune system suddenly halts hair growth in specific areas, resulting in sparse or patchy hair loss that may extend to other parts of the body.

  4. Hair Damage: Common among individuals who frequently use heat styling tools or unsuitable hair products, hair damage manifests as unmanageable, brittle, and broken hair. Styling techniques like highlighting, perming, blow-drying, and straightening can contribute to split ends and overall hair damage.

Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Center, led by board-certified hair treatment doctors in Pune, boasts years of experience in providing customized treatment solutions tailored to each patient’s specific needs.

Treatment of Hair loss and Thinning:

Hair fall originates from the hair root level, where various causes induce intracellular damage through oxidative stress, free radical damage, and ROS. At our center, we target this common point by enhancing the intracellular health of the hair root, thereby preventing further hair fall and thinning. Our approach also aids in repairing damage caused by multiple factors contributing to hair loss.

Our method involves a unique patented product (Tablets) containing numerous micronutrients, hair growth, and boost factors. Unlike ordinary biotin tablets, our product offers comprehensive support, comprising over 40 different vitamins, minerals, and growth factors essential for hair growth and strengthening. Deficiencies in these nutrients can independently hinder hair growth, and even when not deficient, they possess hair growth stimulation potential when administered in specific doses and rhythms. By separating these factors into different tablets, we prevent interactions that may inhibit their actions when given together. Additionally, our medicines address hormonal factors of hair loss through non-hormonal mechanisms, fortifying hair roots to withstand the negative effects of hormones like androgens.

Our system stands out for its unique and efficient approach in correcting various causes of hair fall and thinning. It’s crucial to note that our system does not contain Tab Finasteride. Operating at the molecular level, our hair growth system effectively combats both hormonal and non-hormonal causes of hair fall while strengthening hair roots.

This comprehensive approach ensures optimal results and underscores our commitment to providing effective solutions for hair loss.

  1. Minoxidil: Minoxidil solution is a crucial medication for addressing hair fall and thinning. It’s essential to recognize that this solution is approved by the US FDA for the treatment of hair fall, ensuring its safety and effectiveness. Therefore, individuals should not hesitate to use this medicine due to unfounded myths associated with it. While there may be apprehensions surrounding the usage of minoxidil solution, understanding the correct perspective from the treating doctor is vital to reap the benefits associated with this medicine and its safe profile. However, it’s important to note that solely using minoxidil solution without addressing the underlying causes of hair fall will only provide temporary improvement. Patients deserve a better line of treatment that addresses the root cause of their hair loss. Minoxidil solution is available in various concentrations, such as 2%, 5%, and 10%, and can also be combined with other molecules like redensyl and Procapil. Additionally, it may be formulated in different bases, such as alcohol-based or alcohol-free bases like Aloe vera. These diverse products have their own advantages and limitations. At Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Centre, our consultants guide patients in selecting the right product suitable for their condition. It’s worth noting that minoxidil is also available in tablet form for cases where individuals are allergic to the proper minoxidil solution or deficient in the sulphonyl transferase enzyme in scalp skin, which is necessary for the effectiveness of minoxidil solution. Before using minoxidil, it’s crucial to ensure that you are not allergic to the product. If allergic reactions occur, changing the brand or its base can help combat these effects. We also offer minoxidil-free treatment options for patients allergic to minoxidil or those unwilling to use minoxidil solution. This comprehensive approach ensures that patients receive the most suitable treatment tailored to their individual needs and preferences.

  2. Tab Finasteride: Finasteride is another commonly used medication for hair fall and thinning that is approved by the US FDA. However, we seldom utilize it in tablet form due to concerns among patients regarding its potential hormonal side effects. Fortunately, there are many other safe DHT blockers available as alternatives. At our clinic, we offer effective treatments for hair loss even without the use of Finasteride tablets. Our approach ensures that patients receive suitable solutions tailored to their needs and concerns, promoting optimal outcomes without compromising on safety.

  3. PRP Treatment: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses the healing power of our blood, specifically targeting hair restoration. During the procedure, a blood sample is collected and processed using a specialized kit, where it undergoes centrifugation to isolate the PRP from other blood components. This concentrated PRP is then administered via microinjections into the scalp around the hair roots. PRP therapy is highly popular among both men and women seeking effective solutions for hair loss. Contrary to common perception, the procedure is relatively painless, thanks to the use of micro needles or injections. At Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Center in Pune, renowned for its excellence in hair loss treatments, patients can expect the best experience should PRP therapy be recommended. Before undergoing PRP therapy, it’s advisable to consult your physician and inquire about the treatment’s results in cases similar to yours. Understanding the cost-effectiveness of the therapy is also essential. While PRP therapy is widely recognized for its success and cost-effectiveness, it’s important to note that promoting it as a “PRP hair transplant” can be misleading. While PRP may be used to store harvested hair grafts, it remains a vital component of medical treatment for hair loss. Our consultants at Authentic Hair Transplant advocate for clear communication with patients, ensuring they understand the distinction between medical treatments like PRP therapy and surgical hair transplants.

  4. Mesotherapy: In addition to PRP therapy, mesotherapy involves the delivery of growth factors and stimulants to the hair roots through microinjections, rollers, or innovative needleless radiofrequency and electroporation devices. This painless technique aims to nourish and revitalize the scalp, promoting hair growth and health.

  5. LLLT (Low-Level Light Therapy): LLLT utilizes a laser device that emits low-light energy at wavelengths ranging from 600 to 1100 nm. This therapy stimulates the hair roots, enhancing circulation and cellular activity to support hair growth. While LLLT offers numerous benefits, it also has certain limitations, yet it remains a widely used treatment in esteemed centers worldwide.

  6. Stem Cell Therapy: While the term “stem cell therapy” may sound promising, its utility is still limited, and not all stem cell therapies are effective for hair loss. Patients are advised to exercise caution and thoroughly evaluate the treatment’s previous results and cost-effectiveness before considering it. Consulting with a physician is essential to make informed decisions regarding stem cell therapy.

  7. Ongoing Research: Various genetic and other therapies are currently under investigation and may receive approval for clinical use in the future. These emerging treatments hold promise for addressing hair loss more effectively.

At Authentic Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Centre in Pune, India, we adhere to internationally recognized standards and follow US FDA-approved treatment protocols. As a leading center for hair loss treatment, we prioritize safety, efficacy, and patient satisfaction in delivering exceptional care.

What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy?

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is derived from a patient’s blood and consists of a high concentration of platelets. The creation process involves extracting the PRP through centrifugation, which requires only a small amount of plasma.

PRP therapy is one of the most effective hair loss treatments due to its ability to stimulate collagen production and natural healing power. It works by using the patient’s own blood platelets to promote hair regrowth, earning the nickname ‘liquid gold’. PRP has no invasive side effects and is an ideal choice for anyone looking to tackle hair loss in a less risky way.

Overall, PRP is a safe and effective method of treating hair loss, providing long-term results with minimal risks involved. It has the potential to be the perfect solution for anyone looking to restore their confidence by restoring their hair.

Who is a good candidate for PRP Therapy for hair?

Individuals who are overall healthy and experience thinning hair or balding may be suitable candidates for PRP Therapy. Those who are self-conscious about their receding hairline and desire to restore their hair growth can take advantage of this treatment.
