Hair Loss Treatment in Agra, India
Hair Loss Treatment for Men & Women
Different people have different expectations of a hair loss treatment. Many people think that Hair Transplant means undergoing medical treatment & yet others think that it is the same as putting on a wig. As a Hair Restoration physician, we must guide you about the complete range of treatments for hair loss:
Firstly, it should be understood that hair transplantation is an out-patient, surgical procedure performed by licensed surgeons and an experienced team that moves individual hair follicles from a part of your body, known as the ‘donor site’, and implants it on a balding part of your body, which is the ‘recipient site’. We usually take hair follicles from the back of the head, also known as “Occipital region” and transfer it to the top of your head (Bald area). This procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and is minimally invasive. The duration of surgery may vary from 4-8 hours depending on the number of grafts to be transplanted. The hair grows in a group of one to four hairs, known as a follicular unit.
In hair restoration surgery like hair transplant, we transplant these follicular units by using either FUE or FUT methods. These state-of-the-art hair transplantation techniques achieve a natural appearance, one that looks identical to how your hair used to look. This is what we’re known for around the world and why our hair loss treatment in Agra for men and women is considered by many experts to be the best around.
What is Hair Transplant?
It is a minimally invasive surgical treatment to address the problem of baldness. Here, hair follicles are removed from the ‘donor site’, typically at the back of the head and transplanted to the ‘recipient site’, typically at the front of the scalp. It comprises of majorly two procedures – Linear Excision Method (previously, Follicular Unit Transplantation) or Follicular Unit Excision (FUE).
Hair Transplantation: This is the most effective way to restore hair loss in the advanced stages of balding for both men and women. Hair transplant helps when receding hairline or thinning hair becomes an issue. For those suffering from genetic hair loss, such as male and female pattern baldness, other hair loss treatments might slow down the loss of hair but they cannot combat it entirely. In fact, out of all the hair loss remedies available out there, hair transplantation is the only known solution to restore hair permanently. The success rates may vary from an individual to another, but hair transplantation is most often the final option for many suffering from hair loss.

Apart from any surgical hair transplantation procedure, for those who are looking for a short-term hair loss remedy, there are medically-approved options:
Oral Medication: This medication works for both men and women. It has received approval from the FDA to treat male pattern hair loss. The medication’s effectiveness depends upon the type of hair loss and its location. Oral medication does not work well on receding hairlines. Also, men who are already “shiny bald” are unlikely to have positive results because the hair follicles may not be salvageable. Men who have moderate thinning at the back or top of the head have a better chance of obtaining some visible benefit, but only for as long as they continue taking the medication.
Topical Hair Solution (Minoxidil): This solution works for both men and women. The only direct hair growth stimulator currently FDA-approved to address hair loss is topical minoxidil. It comes under common names such as Mintop lotion or Amexidil sprays. A 5 per cent solution, foam and spray have been approved for men and a 2 per cent solution for women. Using the drug is simple: twice a day you apply the liquid or foam to your scalp. The one drawback is that if you stop using the treatment, any benefits achieved from this particular hair loss treatment for men will eventually be lost. You have to stay with it or your hair will revert to its previous loss pattern.
Oral Multivitamins are also prescribed to you to be taken regularly.
Mesotherapy in Hair Loss Treatment Agra, India
Mesotherapy means injecting something in the mesoderm. Initially being used rampantly for fat reduction (lipolysis) and has come into use for hair loss treatment in Agra as well.
The scientific basis for mesotherapy: To provide nourishment in the form of vitamin boosters and growth factors to hair roots to increase the rate of hair growth. This specific treatment and part of the overall hair restoration procedures transform the weak roots into healthy ones to produce healthy hair. The quality of hair is also enhanced by using various cocktails of serums.
How to give Mesotherapy?
Nappage technique: This is done by 1 ml syringe. Here, various growth factors, hair vitalisers, vitamins such as biotin, vitamin H etc are deposited in the scalp near the hair roots in a shorter period within a larger area.
Popular technique: A bit painful and so, an anaesthetic gel may be applied before (the doctor will explain to you the protocol as well as the procedure). It’s a very good technique used for depositing the serums, vitamins etc in a bolus amount adjacent to the hair roots.
After derma rollers: The basic serums and solutions that are used in nappage and papular techniques are applied to the scalp after the procedure of derma rollers as explained below.
Dermarollers Used in Hair Loss Treatment in Agra
Dermarollers are microneedles on small roller tools. The length of these needles varies from 0.25 mm to 2.00 mm. When used in the condition of hair loss (thinning of hair), the 0.5 or 0.75 mm rollers are used over the scalp with determined direction and hold.
The micro-needling triggers hair growth by physical mechanism as well as by the special cocktails of serums and vitamins which are applied after the rollers are done.
Laser Therapy (igrow): The laser comb or laser cap is the first and only home-used medical laser device that has been clinically proven and FDA cleared, for men and women, to stimulate your scalp and promote hair growth. The device is a hand-held instrument that you’ll need to use for 10-15 minutes a day, three times a week. It is cordless and comes with easy-to-use features providing the convenience of hair restoration services for men.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
How does PRP work?
Patients who are good candidates for a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection want to prevent continuing hair loss and are currently experiencing a lot of miniaturized (thinned out) hair.
A non-surgical solution and part of the hair loss treatment in Agra, PRP is not a pharmaceutical or a drug, but a Medical Device sanctioned by the FDA for use in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Structurally, PRP is a biomatrix that repairs and remodels damaged tissues.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Surgery
In hair restoration surgery, PRP is injected into the scalp. The application of PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, thus producing more robust hair growth. PRP activates follicular progenitor cells (adult stem cells) and is loaded with growth factors that promote rapid angiogenesis and localized cell growth. Effective in both male and female pattern hair loss, PRP leads to the regrowth of hair in the alopecia area, eyebrow hypotrichosis and other patient cases with non-hereditary hair loss.
The recovery from PRP therapy is typically uneventful. Pain is easily managed in most cases with non-narcotic analgesic medication such as Ibuprofen. Some mild swelling of the forehead is occasionally seen 4-6 hours after administering PRP injections. This is normal and will resolve in 48 hours. Avoiding vigorous activity is recommended until the swelling is gone. There is no other downtime or noticeable effects of the procedure. Patients can wash their hair normally immediately after the injections. A PRP treatment takes about 80 minutes to complete.
First, a blood sample is obtained which is specially processed to produce the PRP. A local anaesthetic is then administered to completely numb the scalp treatment area. If desired, a sedative can be administered. The PRP is combined and then administered via a series of injections over the scalp or in a localized treatment area such as the eyebrows or beard. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment. At Saraswat Hospital, PRP therapy is a versatile tool used for hair loss treatment in Agra for several causes including:
- Male Pattern Hair Loss, especially in the early stages of balding, or anytime when there is a lot of miniaturized hair on the scalp. 3-6 sittings for this hair loss treatment in India are recommended at an interval of 1 month each.
- Female pattern hair loss is at all stages of hair loss.
- Hypotrichosis (fine/reduced hairs) of the eyebrows or beard.
- Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis.
- After any hair restoration surgery.
- Due to metabolic reasons and iron deficiency-induced anaemia.
