A full head of hair portrays youth and vitality. Unfortunately, millions of people experience hair loss each year. Balding or thinning hair can bring significant consequences, including those that involve your self-esteem, professional career, social life and more. While there are many hair loss treatments available today, many of the topical products do not work, and invasive hair transplant surgery may not be affordable or desired. At Precision Medical Specialists, we are proud to integrate a powerful and all-natural hair loss treatment using platelet rich plasma to stimulate new hair growth in balding men and women. With the regenerative capabilities of a small amount of your blood plasma, we can help restore a full, healthy and natural head of hair. This in-office procedure is quick, budget-friendly and delivers sustainable results.
What Causes Hair Loss?
There are many reasons for male and female hair loss, including those that are caused by genes, medications or certain medical conditions. Hair loss occurs when the normal hair growth cycle is disrupted. Alopecia aerate is a form of hair loss that is caused by an autoimmune disorder, and it can be challenging to treat. The most common form of hair loss is androgenic alopecia, which is male pattern thinning. Male pattern baldness occurs when the hair follicles shrink over time. This eventually results in a failure to grow new hair altogether. Male sex hormones (dihydrotestosterone) and genetics are driving factors for this type of hair loss, which typically occurs in the front, crown and top of the scalp.
PRP injections can be used to treat many types of hair loss, including common male pattern thinning as well as alopecia aerate. We are proud to offer such an effective non-surgical remedy to our patients, one that requires no downtime and is safer than hair transplant surgery or injecting synthetic products into the scalp.
PRP Hair Loss Treatment
When transferring your own platelet rich plasma into balding areas of the scalp, a regenerative process occurs within the hair follicles. PRP is enriched with growth factors and bioactive proteins that are known for promoting wound healing, tissue repair and hair growth. In the medical treatment of male and female hair loss, PRP can awaken dormant hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth by inducing hair stem cells to enter their growth phase. Essentially, PRP can reverse the hair miniaturization (thinning) process that occurs in common baldness. PRP hair loss treatments can also be used to enhance a previous hair transplant surgery, as it promotes better healing and enhances the hair growth results.
