How Does Hair Loss Happen?
Most people regularly shed between 50 and 100 hairs each day. That is normal and does not cause thinning because as you lose your hair, new hairs are growing in. Hair loss occurs when something disrupts the hair growth cycle of growth and shedding, or when your hair follicles are destroyed and replaced with scar tissue.
There are many reasons you could be losing hair, including androgenetic alopecia, otherwise known as male or female pattern baldness, which is a heredity condition based on your family history. Additionally, your hair loss could be the result of hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications you are taking, or from vitamin and nutrient deficiencies.
You could also be suffering from hair loss due to a trigger event or severe stress, which may cause a condition called telogen effluvium. Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull or tug on your hair such as pigtails or cornrows can cause traction alopecia, which may also lead to hair loss.
How Can I Regrow My Hair?
There are many treatment options to regrow your hair, including over-the-counter or prescription medications or lotions. PRP Therapy has been shown to be an effective and safe way to regrow your hair using your very own platelet-rich plasma, which naturally stimulates hair growth.
What Is PRP Therapy?
PRP has been used for years to treat sports injuries by stimulating stem cells. In the case of hair loss, the platelets prompt inactive hair to enter an active growth phase, causing it to start growing again.
PRP is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes the patient’s blood to stimulate hair growth. The first step is drawing blood from your body, just as if you were having blood drawn for a blood test. Your blood is then treated in a centrifuge to separate the platelets, which contain growth factors that promote hair growth, from the rest of your blood. This procedure results in platelet-rich plasma, which is now ready to be injected back into your scalp using microneedles. The growth factors present in your blood cells will naturally stimulate hair growth.
Your platelet-rich plasma contains around five times the number of platelets found in your blood. These platelets carry platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor, insulin-like growth factor 1, vascular endothelial growth factor, and keratinocyte growth factor. These all have a positive impact on hair growth.
PRP hair regrowth works well on both men and women. This cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedure has been shown to deliver superior results in patients. It is a very natural, innovative choice for quality hair restoration.
What Are The Advantages of PRP Therapy?
PRP hair restoration therapy has been shown to be a very safe procedure. PRP is entirely autologous, which means all of its components are derived from your body. There are no drugs or chemicals introduced into your body, avoiding the risk of drug interactions. You will not require any blood testing, and since the PRP is from your body, it should not trigger any allergies. Concentrated numbers of white blood cells make up part of PRP, and since these are the agents that fight off infections, it is rare to experience any infection with this procedure.
PRP Hair Regrowth is a simple, quick, non-surgical procedure with a rapid recovery period. The treatment has been shown to be safe and reliable, with patient reports of beautiful and incredibly natural looking results. Timeframes and results may vary from patient to patient.
What Should I Expect?
We will administer a cooling treatment to make your treatment comfortable. You may experience minimal tenderness and mild swelling at the injection sites for 3-5 days following the procedure. Timeframes and results may vary from patient to patient.
The entire treatment, which includes preparing the PRP, cleaning the treatment area, and injecting the PRP into the scalp is completed relatively quickly for most patients. You’ll be ready to go on with your life in no time! The best results are achieved with 3-4 treatment sessions spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Depending on your individual needs and your treatment plan, you may need additional treatments until you achieve the desired results.
