Treatment Case Study for

Hair Regrowth - Coin Size Patches

Ritu is a 45-year-old married woman with 62 kg and a BMI of 23.1. She usually takes a balanced diet with occasional indulgences in junk or street food. She had been suffering from emotional stress as well due to significant hair loss i.e. coin-sized patches on her head. To fight against her hair loss, she tried everything from topical solutions to using herbal or ayurvedic products and even did some home-based remedies but nothing worked. On the basis of these details, the doctor addressed his concern and prepared a customized hair care treatment plan according to her needs. She followed the plan diligently and after 9 months of the treatment duration, she saw drastic changes and experienced regrowth of hair which she thought would never happen.
