About Injection Therapy
There are seemingly hundreds of different hair loss treatments with varying levels of reliability and success. But some are based on much more solid science than others.
One of these treatments is Injection Therapy, simply a substance drawn from your blood and injected into your scalp that can purportedly help heal bodily tissues, including follicles from which your hairs grow. The injection is extracted from your blood using a centrifuge-like mechanism that can separate the substance from your blood and increase the concentration of specific proteins that promote healing.
The kind of Injection Therapy performed at TRIDOC Hair Restoration is an established and effective medical treatment modality in different specialty fields such as oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine and orthopedics. It has been used extensively in these specialties for the last two decades with generally positive outcomes and success. In the field of hair restoration, existing evidence demonstrates Injection Therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair grow.

It involves taking plasma from your blood and injecting it into your scalp to stimulate hair growth. The procedure is relatively painless and requires zero recovery time.
Injection Therapy produces noticeable results after just four to six weeks. However, it may be approximately 3.5 months before you see the results you were looking for. Due to the hair growth cycle, ideal results can take up to three sessions.
Please eat a normal breakfast or lunch the day of your session. Drink a bottle of water (500 mL) at least 2 hours before your session. It is strongly recommended to take a hot shower to wash your hair that evening, after the treatment, to promote the effects of the Injection Therapy following your treatment.
