We at, HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, take care of hairs of our patients by providing them with the best hair loss treatment- customised cocktail therapy for hair loss which is based on proven medical research.

Along with Finasteride and Minoxidil, various procedures like platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro needling, and low level laser light therapy (LLLT therapy for hair loss) are done to treat hair loss.

In PRP hair loss treatment, concentrated growth factors extracted from our own blood are delivered to hair follicles on the scalp. In microneedling for hair loss, thousands of micro punctures are created in our scalp with the help of micro needling derma roller devices. These micro punctures results in released of intrinsic growth factors at that site stimulate hair growth.
