It is believed that the vitamin Biotin improves the basic protein that makes up hair, skin and nails. This basic protein is called keratin. Biotin deficiency can cause brittle hair and hair loss. Biotin can be taken in a tablet form or given intramuscularly as an injection. Many supplements and vitamins are not completely absorbed by our bodies through ingestion and thus intramuscular biotin injection has been helpful in increasing biotin levels faster in many patients. Correct dosages of biotin supplementation have shown an increase in hair growth, hair structure and thickness as well as a decrease in hair loss.
Our office provides Biotin intra-muscular injections for hair growth and strengthening. We also perform PRP or platelet rich plasma of the scalp for hair growth, hair loss, strengthening of the hair follicles and stimulation of hair cells.
