OUR RESULTS
ARE THE GOLD STANDARD

“Hi, I am a 40 year old male who has been suffering from pattern baldness since my 30s. Due to various responsibilities like career, family, children, loans etc. I was not able to treat my hair loss. I just ignored it. However, more and more people started commenting about my baldness and it was a source of major insecurity. Finally, I was researching on Youtube and came across Dr Dhananjay Chavan's video about the topic, he seemed very knowledgeable and I knew that I had to consult with him. I am very happy about my transplant results and glad that I took this step.”

FAQs
About Intralesional Steroid Injection

An Intralesional Steroid Injection involves the direct injection of corticosteroids into the affected area of the skin. It's commonly used in dermatology to treat various skin conditions, including certain types of alopecia such as alopecia areata.

In the context of alopecia, ILS is used to reduce inflammation around hair follicles, suppress the immune response, and potentially stimulate hair regrowth in conditions like alopecia areata.

Studies and clinical observations have shown that ILS can be effective in promoting hair regrowth, especially in cases of alopecia areata where hair loss occurs in patches.

ILS is a localized treatment that targets specific areas of hair loss and doesn't have any side effects on other parts of the body. It's relatively safe and can be performed in a clinic setting without significant downtime. Also it reduces the overall treatment duration and need for other adjuvant treatments.

The dermatologist or healthcare professional uses a fine needle to inject a diluted corticosteroid solution directly into the affected areas of the scalp where hair loss is present.

The number of sessions varies based on individual response and the extent of hair loss. Typically, multiple sessions are administered over several weeks or months.

Some individuals might experience mild pain or discomfort at the injection site. Rarely, side effects such as skin thinning or changes in skin colour might occur, but these are uncommon.

Yes, ILS can be used in combination with other treatments like topical medications or light therapies to potentially enhance hair regrowth results.
