How Can I Treat My Thinning Hair?

If you are experiencing thinning hair, you are not alone. More than 50 million men and 30 million women in America suffer from hair loss. The good news is that you can restore your hair using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. Isn’t it time you enjoyed full, natural-looking hair once again?

Why Is My Hair Thinning?

Shedding hair is a part of the natural hair growth cycle, with most people losing between 50 and 100 hairs a day. As you shed hairs, new ones are growing in, meaning that you will not experience thinning. Hair loss takes place when a factor disrupts the hair growth cycle, or if hair follicles are damaged.

There are many conditions behind hair loss including male or female pattern baldness which is a hereditary condition, hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, vitamin and nutrient deficiencies, stress triggers, excessive hair styling, tight hairstyles, and more.

How Can I Treat My Thinning Hair?

PRP Therapy has been shown to be a safe and effective non-surgical way to stimulate hair regrowth utilizing your own platelet-rich plasma naturally. This minimally invasive procedure is a natural, innovative choice for quality hair restoration.

Platelet-rich plasma contains about five times the number of platelets in your plasma. They carry platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor, insulin-like growth factor 1, vascular endothelial growth factor, and keratinocyte growth factor, which all trigger hair growth.

What Is the Procedure?

First, we will draw some blood just as we would for a blood test, and place it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets containing growth factors from the rest of the blood. We will inject the platelet-rich plasma into your scalp using microneedles, which will naturally stimulate hair growth. We will administer a cooling treatment to help make your treatment comfortable.

You may experience mild tenderness and swelling for up to days following the procedure. The best results usually require 3-4 treatment sessions spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Depending on your needs, you may require additional treatments to achieve the desired results.
