Welcome to the hair institute ,where we help you with all your hair problems like hair loss ,bald-patch, dry hair ,dandruff, white hair, alopecia areata, cancer patients having hair loss etc.
A receding hairline reflects the age. The commonest form of hair loss is determined by our genes & male hormones & hence called Androgenetic alopecia or male pattern alopecia. This can affect both males & females. Apart from the hormones, hair shedding can be because of improper excess combing, disease/deficiency or psychological problem.
Management of Hair Loss
There are various methods to treat hair loss. It can be either be by MEDICINES which includes lotion and tablets or by surgical management ( HAIR TRANSPLANTATION ). We have introduced LASERS for hair loss for the first time in chhattisgarh to stop hair loss & increase hair growth .We also do MESOTHERAPY for hair growth in which we give tiny injections to stimulate hair growth. Those who don't want to undergo above procedures and are looking for some instant solution for their baldness, we have non-surgical hair replacement methods like - HAIR WEAVING, BONDING ,TAPING etc .We also hair instant methods for regaining hair called HAIR SPRAYS ,which can give you hair in minutes. This would be best for parties and any function
Before undergoing any procedure or taking any tablets, it is very important to diagnose the cause of hair loss.
This can be done with following investigations :
Trichogram & Hair pull test : It involves examination of hair roots under microscope.
Blood testing : It involves not only routine analysis but also essential hormonal analysis.
Other investigations needed are hemoglobin levels & serum analysis of essential elements.
There is a wide range of products available for both males & females, but it is only after required investigation proper medicine can be prescribed by a dermatologist. In females, if the hormone levels are found to be raised, anti androgens can be given. There are various lotions available which can help restore hair loss.
Female Hair Loss
Female pattern of baldness usually begins at about the age of 30,becomes more noticeable at the age of 40,& even more after menopause. They usually show overall thinning of hair over the top of the head, but hairline is maintained. Females may also show male pattern of baldness. With correct diagnosis & investigation it can be arrested medically; & if not, even females can go for hair transplantation. In females, if the hormone levels are found to be raised, anti androgens can be given.
This is an auto-immune disorder where in patient looses hair in patches .Apart from scalp it may also involve eyebrows and other body areas. This condition requires a purely medical management to treat it.
Modern Hair Restoration Surgery
The goal of hair transplantation is to restore a natural undetectable hair line as well hair style to the face, giving a sense of fullness & well being to the patient.
At an early stage, hair loss can be tackled by just medical therapy, but once the hair line starts to recede the only option remains is Hair transplantation. Hormones are responsible for causing hair loss in androgenetic alopecia. Hormones act on the hair to cause gradual thinning & eventually hair loss. But these hormones do not act on the hair over the back of the scalp (occiput), as they are devoid of the receptors on which hormones (testosterone) acts. Thus the hair on back does not fall off. This concept is known as "donor dominance" which forms the corner stone of a successful Hair transplantation and this is the reason why hairs are taken from the back of the scalp.
Hair transplantation can be carried out by various methods, but the most advanced & novel approach which can give a patient a natural look is Micro-Follicular Hair Grafting & Single Hair Transplantation .Done by two techniques - FUSE and FUE(DHI) techniques. These are most popular techniques all over the world. Other obsolete techniques are punch grafting and jury flap technique.
FUSE (Follicular Unit Strip Extraction) Techniques
Taking The Strip
Initially a local anesthesia is given on the back which numbs the are.Then hair follicles from the back of the scalp in the form a strips are taken & then dissected in to multiple small grafts i.e. Single, Micro (1-2 hair) or Mini grafts (3-4 hair) ,according to the need of the patient, so as to give a natural look.
Suture over donor area
The back of the scalp from where the strip has been taken out is approximate and sutured.This area is not visible at all because existing hair cover the linear scar.
Management of Donor Area
The donor area (back of the scalp) i.e. from where the hair is taken from , is stitched by continues sutures, which are then removed after 10 days. No dressing is required.
These single and double hair grafts are then grafted over the frontal region after making a frontal hairline. The number of the hair grafted depends upon the density of the back (occiput)from where the hair is taken from.From an average 12-13 cm long strip ,up to 2000-2500 hair can be taken out. Surgery is done under local anesthesia. These grafted hair retain the property of the back hair & thus grow thick & long. Hormones have no affect on them & they do not become fine.These grafted hair grow as natural hair and can undergo coloring ,hair cut ,hair dye or can even be shaved.
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or DHI (Direct Hair Implantation )TECHNIQUE
In this the donor area is shaved from the back and with the help of machine single or micro-follicular units are taken out .These are then grafted on the front by the help of micro instruments. The advantage of this technique is that we don't take a strip from the back and therefore no sutures are required at the back of scalp. Patient does not have to come back for suture removal either. The grafting technique remains the same with minor differences.Dressing done only in limited cases.
The whole surgery is done by expert team of Dermatologist, Plastic Surgeon & well trained Para Medical staff .
Hair transplantation has also been under taken to correct alopecia of diverse etiology. These include alopecia areata, pseudopalade of brock & discoid lupus erythromatosis etc. Surgical restoration of eyebrow, moustache destroyed by accident or burns have been performed with varying degree of success.
Unfortunately, procedures like punch grafting, are more familiar to the patients ,should not be carried out in practice as they lead to "Doll hair appearance" or "paddy field".
The secret of successful hair transplantation not only lies in the procedure but also on the art & aesthetic with essence of hair styling.
A Few of our Happy Hairs .
Creating a Natural Hair Line
Micro-follicular hair grafting or Single Hair Transplantation is the gold standard for creating a natural hairline, which gives patients a natural look. We use "follicular unit" micrograft for frontal hairline. First the bald area is divided in to "transition zone" & "defined zones" following which 1,2,3 hair follicular units are selectively & separately grafted to give both a natural look & acceptable density.
After the surgery the scalp is left with just a gel over it which holds the grafted hair follicles. No dressing is required to hold the grafts. Patient would be advised a course of antibiotics for 5-7 days. After that patient is advised to shampoo their hair. A list of instructions would be given to the patient following the surgery. Patient is strictly advised not to take alcohol or smoke for next 7 days following the surgery. There are no stringent restrictions & patient can even attend his or her office the very next day.
The best thing about micro-follicular hair grafting or single hair transplantation, patient may not need to go for any dressing and so patient need not have to come back for review also.The grafted hair falls down after a month .They again regrow gradually and takes atleast 6-8 months time to grow full length. After this patient if needed can undergo second session of hair transplantation.
Hair Line Enhancement
Hair line enhancement is done for those patient who has already undergone one sitting of hair transplantation & wants a more fuller or denser look or those who is in the initial stages of hair loss.

What laser assisted hair transplantation?
Laser assisted hair transplantation, which seems to be a sophisticated procedure, is in fact a procedure, in which laser is used to make holes on recipient site. But this gives inferior result because it hampers with the vascularity of the recipient site. We've carried out the same with the laser, but because of the graft rejection ,discontinued doing it.

There are no stringent restrictions & patient can even attend his office the very next day.

Synthetic Hair Grafting (Bio-Fibre)
Synthetic hair grafting consists of implanting pre made synthetic hair filaments which are imported from Italy .They are synthetic monofilaments which are hypo-allergic .These are implanted on the frontal or vertex area with the help of special instrument. Patient need to undergo a patch test of 100 hair filaments before under going for a full grafting.
Non Surgical Hair Replacement
Those patients who are not suitable for hair transplantation or who do not want to go for any surgical procedures or who do not want to wait for 6 months for hair to grow,can go for non-surgical procedures which does not take much time .These procedures are hair weaving,hair bonding,hair weafting or simply wigs.In case patients having thyroid problem or are cancer patients and have lost most of their hair ,cannot go for hair transplantation. In such cases these non surgical procedures are good and give instant results .They are not painful and patient need not wait for the hair to grow.The only drawback is that these hair do not grow and patient cannot go for hair cut or shave.
This consists of patches of hair, which are placed over the head to cover the baldness. This comes by various names like - Hair Weaving, Hair Cliping, Tapping, Silicon Bonding, Hair Bonding,Wigs etc. All these are artificial procedure, in which preformed hair patches are placed over the head.
HAIR CLIPPING: In this system, a special kind of clips are attached with the hair piece and that is placed on top of the balding area .These clips grip the healthy hairl and the unit merges with the existing hair. It is a very simple and easy to maintain.
HAIR TAPING : This is very much similar to the clipping in system and the only difference is, instead of clips we are using double sided adhesive tapes to stick to the bald area. Patient can shampoo,condition,color,dye etc with the hair piece attached. He can even comb his hair as required .He can drive bikes without the fear from it coming out. No special precaution needs to be taken and can use same product as he was using for his natural hair.
HAIR WEAVING : means braiding or weaving of synthetic or human hair in to the existing natural hair.It is also known as hair integration. The hair is woven to the root area of the client's hair so that it grows naturally with the client's hair. The procedure is more cosmetic than surgical as it involves attaching extensions. The anchoring needs to be tightened periodically as natural hair grows. The choice of hair, whether human or synthetic depends on factors like the weaving technique followed and the life style of the individual. The weaving technique called the corn row is the oldest hair weaving technique, it has been around since the 1950s but the result is often lumpy hair. It should be avoided if you have fine thin lumpy hair.
HAIR BONDING : This technique is practiced normally when existing hair are in sides and back only and front and crown of the scalp area is almost bald. The hair units are bonded with a U.S.-F.D.A. approved silicon compound and merged with your existing hair.A unique practice for natural look, however resetting is required every one to three months depending upon the quantity and pH of the sweat through the scalp and weather conditions.
Hair wig is recommended for people suffering from a wide range of hair and scalp illnesses like alopecia totalis, alopecia universalis, ectodermal dysplasia, bums, radiation, cancer etc.
Lasers for Hair Regrowth
This is a type of phototherapy for hair which reverses and stops hair loss.The hairs are stimulated by this unique laser light device.This prodices 9 laser beams which generates columnated ,coherent visible light in red spectrum.The hypothesis behind this technique is that it increases vasularization and increased cellular metabolism.It thus increases the blood flow and circulation in the scalp,therby getting usefull nutrients to the hair and taking away useless elements like DHT. The enhanced environment then in turn invigorates the hair follicle which produces healthier hair, prevents further hair loss and stimulates the re-growth of hair.

How can we keep our Hairs healthy ?
- Avoid excess hair combing, as it may lead to split hair.
- Choose a shampoo or conditioner depending upon your hair type.
- Always prefer a separate shampoo & a conditioner & not a combination.
- Conditioner never nourishes hair; they just form a coating around the hair shaft and gives a shine.
- Avoid combing /brushing on wet hair as it may cause excess traction.
- Before using a hair dye, a patch test should be done, as a sever allergic reaction can occur.
- Avoid excess use of hair dryer.
- Usually an allergy of hair dye starts with itching, redness and boils on the scalp.
- If allergic to hair dye, try use ammonia free hair dye.
- For volume or thickness a styling gel or a mousse can be used.
