Chennai, NFAPost: QR 678, a patented treatment for hair regrowth therapy for men and women, has proven to be more effective than Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as a hair loss treatment. This study was published in an American Journal called the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. It showed that as compared to the PRP therapy, QR 678 showed significant improvement in hair regrowth with almost 100% reduction in hair fall.
QR 678 was invented by celebrity cosmetic surgeons from India Dr Debraj Shome and Dr Rinky Kapoor. They observed that male pattern baldness, known as Androgenic Alopecia characterised by progressive hair loss in men growing at a rampant rate of 58% in males aged 30-50 years which initiated their urge to research and find a solution to this cosmetic issue leading to the invention of QR 678.
The therapy curbs hair fall and increases the thickness, the number and density of existing hair follicles, offering greater hair coverage to the ones with alopecia. The formulation has received patents in the United States and in India.
The Esthetic Clinics Cosmetic Surgeon and Director Dr Debraj Shome said, “The hair-regrowth treatments available currently have many limitations; they cannot revive hair beyond a certain stage. QR678 is a process where growth factors are injected in the hair follicles, which not only arrest hair fall but also stimulate hair growth. QR678 is a non-surgical, pain-free and non-invasive procedure for the hair regrowth treatment which has shown very good results in over 10,000 patients.”
Dr Shome added, “From my experience as a cosmetic surgeon dealing with hair loss patients on a daily basis, the treatment has responded very well, especially in India. QR 678 has had a success rate of 90% in India and this is the highest success rate achieved by any hair fall treatment in a shortest treatment time of 6-8 sessions.”
Comparing the two treatments in question, Dr Rinky Kapoor partner to Dr Shome and one of leading Dermatologists in India said, “PRP is used by all Dermatologists and plastic surgeons for hair growth. PRP involves extracting platelets from human blood and injecting it into the scalp to cause hair growth. But, the truth is that this therapy is more based on hope than actual science. There has never been a randomised controlled trial showing that PRP actually causes hair growth. That is why we conducted a comparative trial between the QR678 and PRP treatments and no surprises that the QR678 treatment caused almost 300% better results than the PRP”.
PRP and the QR678 treatments
The trial was a split head trial, comparing the PRP treatment efficacy with the QR678 treatments. While PRP is supposed to have growth factors for hair growth, the QR 678 treatment is a bioengineered, first in class hair therapy, with six hair growth factors and biomimetic peptides, administered to the scalp via mesotherapy.
With Alopecia and hair loss becoming more and more common and affecting more than 40% males and 30% Females over the age of 30 globally, having a new age, proven therapy is very important for the world. More than 12,000 patients have already experienced results with the QR 678 treatment, which has an USA and an Indian patent, and is now being exported to multiple countries from India, Dr Kapoor said.
The acceptance of the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology of the QR678 hair growth treatment will change the execution and delivery of hair loss treatment, as PRP was rampantly and randomly used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons alike, in India and globally. India through the ‘Made in India’, the QR678, may have pioneered a way forward for cosmetology at an international level.
