According to the American Academy of Dermatology, hair loss affects over 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States alone. Hair loss can be caused by many factors including medications, chronic illness, diet, or stress. Some women experience hair loss after pregnancy. But hair loss is predominantly the result of hereditary causes, such as male pattern baldness.
Fortunately, due to recent medical advances, hair loss can be effectively treated. At My Bliss Clinic, there are a few treatment options available for hair loss:
Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
Recent scientific research and technology provides the medical community with new understandings of wound and tissue healing. As a result of these scientific studies, we know PRP is an all-natural medical procedure performed in physicians offices for hair loss or conditions causing hair thinning.
Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. Published medical literature from Europe and the United States confirms the safety and use of PRP therapy.
PRP therapy has established itself to be effective as a medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of 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 PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
The benefits of PRP Injections for Hair Loss can include:
- Prevent & slow down the rate of hair loss, thinning, hair shedding & hair fall.
- Regrow thinning hair thicker, fuller and healthier without relying on daily drugs or daily chemicals.
- Boost the health & condition of the scalp naturally without harsh chemicals or drugs.
- Prepare the scalp and skin for the stress of surgery
- Accelerate the recovery of the scalp and skin after surgery or a hair transplant.
- Promote collagen levels
- Improve the elasticity of your skin and scalp.
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive technique based on superficial microinjections, just below the epidermis, into the targeted mesoderm (middle layer of the skin). It is a treatment that stimulates the mesoderm, which relieves a wide variety of symptoms and ailments. The solution injected contains a wide range of minerals, vitamins, amino acids and co-enzymes that can be tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
Meostherapy for hair loss is used with great success in Europe and the United States. The treatment is very comfortable and safe when done professionally. There is no dressing or local anaesthesia required. After the treatment you can just go back to your normal activities.
Mesotherapy brings just the right materials to the exact place where is is needed, i.e. around the hair follicle so that
- The hair follicle can grow and survice
- The excess of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is neutralised
- The blood circulation is improved
iGrow Hair Rejuvenation System

What is LLLT?
Lasers are widely used in medicine and also throughout a variety of industries, in a multitude of varying capacities. The laser energy used to stimulate hair growth is visible in the red light spectrum. The laser light used in promoting hair growth is defined as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). LLLT is sometimes included under a broader definition of ‘Phototherapy’ called Low-Level Light Therapy, where the light-emitting device may be a laser and/or light-emitting diode (LED).
LLLT revitalization is not superficial; it takes place within the cells of hair follicles. Cells absorb the low level light and become more active, this is known as photobiostimulation. It is like giving your cells vitamins for a healthy metabolism. Cells then begin to repair and revitalize themselves.
Is iGrow safe to be used at home?
The iGrow® has been specially designed with safety features for at-home, office and travel use, including a safety mechanism controlling both laser and LED devices. In addition, the iGrow® is designed so that it can only be turned on when it is firmly placed on your head.

No. Testing and patient testimonials have shown no known side effects when using iGrow. LLLT has 40 years of history indicating excellent safety profile. However, patients may experience lightheadedness upon initial few times of usage due to increased circulation, which is perfectly normal.
