Hair loss prevention


#1

Hello all,

We all know that the best surgical treatment option for bald patients is hair transplantation.(FUE & FUT)

Unfortunately hair loss prevention methods are mostly, medical than surgical. The only surgical prevention method is derma roller or modified derma roller. The success with this is controversial due to superficial treatment and uncertainty of reparative tissue generation in the important area that is --hair bulb.

Our method addresses the problems . In our method we don’t use circular punch . The punch will be 1/8 or 1/4 or 1/2 circle in shape. The side walls are beveled and sharpened to cut sharp than tear the tissue.

The punch is inserted in a oscillating hand piece to achieve oscillating movements. This causes an arc shape of the cut around the hair follicle.

Three possibilities can occur.

  1. The punch creates a longitudinal cut along the hair shaft and creates an arc shape cut around the bulb of the hair follicle.

Due to regenerative potential and scar formation ,less edema on the bulb etc, that particular hair follicle becomes resistant to balding.The blood and nutrient supply is not compromised due to the fact the cut is partial not complete.

  1. In the second possibility due to the angulations of the hair shaft etc hair follicle is transected above the geminal area which prevents donor follicle damage.

3.In a third possibility the bulb of the follicle is transected horizontally . This in vivo transection causes hair multiplication or hair regeneration . this may cause donor doubling( every HT surgeons dream)

our concept is only theoretical. the practical implementation and evaluation of the concept is under investigation. interested researchers can evaluate this.it is in a patent pending status .if you come across similar patents
kindly inform us.
thanking you

Hair loss affects the appearance of an individual and hence causes inferiority complex. Every such person aspires for perfect hair and there are 3 effective ways that can help them realize their dream. These may include –

  1. Approved Medications

There are many hair loss medications in the market that promise to prevent further loss and regrow hair. Example:

  • Oral Finasteride and
  • Topical Minoxidil

Both are FDA approved medications for treating hair loss. But, they are **not effective in the cases of large-scale balding and they have side-effects too . Moreover, long-term treatments with these medicines can be expensive.

  1. Popular Therapies

Therapies such as Mesotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) and, Lower Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) could serve as a great option in treating hair related problems. The hair problems that can be cured with the help of therapies include, hair thinning, less volume, rough & damaged hair etc. Therapies are believed to stimulate present hair follicles but cannot bring back those which have been lost. This makes their effectiveness limited in cases of extreme hair loss.

  1. Hair Transplant Procedure

Hair Transplantation is a surgical technique of extracting hair follicles from a hair-bearing area called donor area to a balding region called the recipient site. The donor area is usually at the back of the head and behind/above the ears where the hair growth is naturally resistant to hair loss. In advanced cases of baldness, graft requirement is high and alternate donor area can be utilized such as beard, chest hair, etc.
