Hair loss is a major concern for many people – men and women both. There are quite a few factors that can contribute to hair loss. Sometimes it can be as simple as chalking it up to just plain genetics. However, other factors such as hormones, environmental factors, health conditions, and everyday stress can also be the reason. Regardless of the source of your hair loss, we can reduce or even avoid the loss of hair by applying a revolutionary, modern technique commonly known as Platelet Rich Plasma therapy or PRP.
With this new technology, a small quantity of blood is drawn from you and spun in a particular centrifuge in our office to separate the platelets. The plasma, which has a large concentration of platelets, can then be extracted. The desired area of treatment is numbed with a strong anesthetic topical cream, then a high-tech micro-needling pen moves smoothly over the scalp, applying the platelet-rich plasma directly to the scalp. Plasma is also infused into specific areas using an extremely fine needle.
This therapy can be very effective for men suffering from male pattern baldness, or women with thinning hair. A number of sessions will be completed over time in order to optimize results. Hair follicles preserved with PRP are actually strengthened, and the procedure thickens the hair that you already have while aiding in the prevention of additional hair loss. Undeniably, results vary by the person, but depending on the situation, many people have responded very well to this therapy and had great success. Unfortunately though, it cannot grow new hair on a bald area where hair has the follicle has closed.*
