Light therapy is a relatively new treatment modality for hairloss. It has been found that red light at a wavelength of 630-660nm stimulates stem cells in the hair follicle. This shifts the hair from static or shedding phase to growing phase. There is increase in blood flow to the scalp upon exposure to this light therapy. This improves hair growth. Hence, apart from cases of hair fall, it is also given in post operative cases of hair transplantation as it improves graft survival.
It also soothes an itchy scalp.

There has been an ongoing serach on reducing hair fall and promoting hair growth. Of the many innovations, Platelet Rich Plasma has emerged as an effective therapy for hair loss.
Platelets on activation release growth factors which potentiate hair growth and wound healing. In PRP, the concentration of platelets is higher than in blood. This platelet concentrate releases a large amount of growth factors and or chemical mediators. Hence, when injected locally it procedures beneficial effects.
We withdraw 20-40 ml of blood and inject the platelet rich concentrate into the scalp with 30G needle.It can be a solo treatment or in combination with hair transplantation.
