It is no brainer that hair loss can be a devastating side-effect after chemotherapy. Thus, hair regrowth can be a matter of concern for the cancer patients. Did you know that hair loss is a temporary side-effect and there are many options that can help you have a scalp full of hair? Yes, you have heard it right. Dr. Debraj Shome, Cosmetic Surgeon and Director, The Esthetic Clinics, suggests a few hair loss coping solutions post cancer recovery.
QR 678 therapy: This therapy curbs hair fall and increases the thickness and density of existing hair follicles, offering a greater overage to the ones with hair loss. The polypeptides used in the therapy result in hair growth. QR 678 is non-invasive, non-surgical, safer and affordable. The procedure will take six to eight sessions with medicine prescription.
Mesotherapy: Can be helpful in encouraging natural hair regeneration in cancer patients suffering from hair loss. It is a dual-action process that involves both chemical and mechanical stimulation. The solution that is injected consists of chemicals, minerals, amino acids, vitamins and coenzymes that is suitable to one’s needs. If you are opting for it then get it done from a certified expert.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP): This can be described as a method wherein one’s own blood is injected into the affected areas to regrow hair as the growth factors helps create or stimulate new hair follicles.
Hair transplant: There are two types of hair transplants, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), also called a Strip technique, a strip of graft is taken from the donor area. This leaves a linear scar behind, which may be difficult to hide in short hairstyles. And in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, the hair follicles are extracted one by one and then transplanted. There is no linear scarring in this process.
