Why does hair loss happen?
Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic tendency that can leave you feeling helpless. Options, like prescription drugs and topicals like minoxidil, are often partially effective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects. Surgical hair restoration can be expensive and is not an option for many. Thinning also happens with aging and women often notice a change in their hair quality in perimenopause and menopause. Losing a lot of hair can be distressing.
How can thinning hair be treated? What is PRP?
Blood platelets contain growth factors that stimulate cell growth. When there is a site of injury in the human body platelets aggregate together to form a clot to stem bleeding and then they release growth factors to initiate healing. Scientists have proven that when these growth factors are concentrated around hair roots hair growth can be stimulated even if hair roots have been dormant for some time. When platelets are concentrated and separated from other elements of blood this is called PRP (platelet rich plasma).
How does PRP for hair loss work?
PRP for hair loss is a therapeutic hair regrowth system that uses proprietary technology to generate the very high concentration of platelets necessary to achieve optimal hair regrowth. Blood is collected from the patient and the platelet-rich portion is isolated and injected back into target regions of the scalp. PRP can stimulate new hair growth in dormant follicles, stabilize hair to prevent early shedding and maximize the quality and health of each hair (improving thickness and luster). This enables you to fight the signs of lost or thinning hair using your own body’s natural capacities.
PRP treatments cannot restore hair in areas of the scalp where there is total loss such as balding. In those cases the hair follicles have died and the only option is a transplant. However, it can be helpful (although not guaranteed) in treating alopecia areata balding and patchy beards in younger men.
