Non-invasive, non-surgical hair loss treatments
Hair loss can be a troubling concern for many of us: we can lose self-confidence and have anxiety if we suffer from it.
In many cases, the more invasive types of hair replacement surgery are not appropriate or necessary.
*Results may vary from person to person
We offer treatments for hair loss that are non-surgical and non-invasive including:
- Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP)
- Low Level Light therapy.
If you call us to arrange a consultation, we will help you to choose the option that’s most suitable for treating your hair loss.
However, it may be that the practitioner recommends the best option for you would be hair transplant surgery. If that is the case, she will refer you to one our affiliated hair transplant surgeons, where you can discuss in more detail your need for a surgical approach to hair loss. The surgeon is likely to recommend one of the latest developments in the hair transplant surgery – the follicular unit extraction (non-scar) technique.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP)
Mesotherapy hair loss treatment for men and women is a ‘vitamin boost’ injection into the scalp to help improve its blood circulation.
Better circulation in the scalp means hair follicles are better nourished, which can improve hair re-growth.
Studies have shown that the naturally-occurring dihydrotestosterone (DHT) hormone is one of the factors that causes hair loss.
How is mesotherapy administered?
With mesotherapy treatment, we usually make the injections with a specially-designed ‘meso gun’, rather than injecting by hand.
This helps to make the treatment quicker minimises any chance of pain of discomfort.
How many sessions will I need?
For hair loss, you may need as many as 5 sessions of mesotherapy, over a period of 4 to 6 months, before you see significant results.
During your consultation, we will advise you whether your particular condition needs more or fewer treatments than this.
Will I need any other treatments with mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy treatments work best if you are following a healthy diet and exercise program, to eliminate toxins.
Low Level Light therapy
Low level light (LLL) therapy is considered a major part of the non-surgical approach to hair loss.
It involves wearing a cap (which you can buy from the clinic) that stimulates hair growth, via red light emitted from laser diodes inside the cap. The red light is absorbed by the skin and hair cells.
According to medical literature, LLL therapy will:
- increase blood flow and stop hair loss in 85% of cases
- stimulate new hair growth in 55% of cases.
Does it hurt?
LLL therapy does not cause any pain, burning or scarring to the skin.
How often do I wear the cap?
Generally, wearing the cap as often and as long as possible is the most advantageous.
However, during your consultation the practitioner will give you more specific advice about the amount of time and frequency that will achieve the best results for you.
We also offer alternative medical solutions subject to consultation with Dr Somji.
