Have you ever wondered why people world over obsess so much over their hair? The market of hair care products is huge, still new products are added every day! Numerous Salons & Studios cater to thousands every day; latest gadgets for styling throngs the market! Lot of research goes on to unearth innovative & effective procedures of hair restoration & hair regrowth.

All this fuss & effort just because your prized possession ‘hair’ is that one major factor that gives a decisive look to your appearance. It embraces your face & enhances your personality. Therefore, a bad hair day is enough to spoil your mood or a good hair day just boosts your confidence!

Now imagine the plight of someone who is suffering from hair loss & discovers a bald patch. Nothing scarier & disastrous can happen!

When realization of hair loss dawns upon a person it’s already too late- the damage done is extensive and at times irreparable. So, what should such a person do?

Without wasting any more time, one should visit a reputed hair loss expert for hair treatment where an expert will perform a scientific test to ascertain the reason of hair loss & also the extent of damage done. The expert is professionally trained to understand the concern and also discuss all possible remedies of hair treatment & their pros and cons. The solution will depend on the affected person’s choice, who obviously will take all factors into account.

When looking for hair restoration as a permanent solution to your baldness, there are few procedures like-

#Laser hair treatment- This revolutionary non-surgical but a clinical technique is effective in arresting hair loss & stimulating deep rooted follicles but does not work effectively on baldness.

#Hair Transplant- This is a surgical process in which healthy follicles are taken from donor site & implanted in the affected area. This procedure gives a good result most of the time however depends on the area of damage to drive home the satisfaction of the candidate.

#PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) Therapy- This therapy uses processed blood plasma which is injected into the scalp to initiate hair growth. The patient’s blood is taken & concentration of plasma with platelets, from which white and red blood cells are removed, is used.

This therapy is mainly used by professionals in the field of hair to reduce inflammation & also to encourage healing. There has not been much scientific research of PRP therapy for hair loss, even though it has been in vogue for medical use from 1980s.

There are many centres that perform this therapy for hair restoration & in addition, claim its success but there are no conclusive evidences to prove this in absolute numbers.

Advantages of PRP Therapy:

The advantages associated with PRP therapy is that it has very minimal side-effects & is a no-risk procedure. It is minimally invasive and hence, needs very less recovery time.

Disadvantages of PRP Therapy:

The downside of this therapy is that it guarantees no positive result. It may temporarily arrest hair loss, promote hair growth but after some time its effect wanes. To maintain the volume of hair one needs to undertake this therapy again and again, multiple times every year.


Thus, we can consider it a safe bet that at the moment PRP Therapy is an option but comparatively an overrated option compared to other sure shot answers as a hair restoration technique. There are various other options which provide confirmed benefits to not a few but a majority of the men and women suffering from the various hair loss concerns. It is a myth which may become a useful procedure in the coming near future if more research goes into it or it’s used in conjunction with other procedures.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.

There was a lot of care and attention displayed by their staff in handling my hair fall issue. Similarly, the receptionists are both friendly and courteous, and the atmosphere is clean and fresh. This clinic deserves 5 stars.
