What causes hair loss and is there anything that can be done to slow or reverse it? There are a variety of factors that can lead to hair loss: family history, hormonal changes, medical conditions, as well as some medications. Patients often become very emotional as they notice the first signs of hair loss and often do not know where to turn for solutions. The good news is there is an effective, safe, non-surgical alternative for both men and women suffering from hair loss: PRP Hair Restoration.
PRP is short for “Platelet Rich Plasma” which is concentrated sample of patient’s own blood composed primarily of high levels of platelets which contain growth factors. These growth factors are responsible for stimulating tissue generation and repair.
When PRP is injected into the scalp, it stimulates human dermal fibroblasts and increases the blood supply to the scalp increasing oxygen and nutrients to the follicles. By doing so, it awakens dormant hair follicles, thus producing, in many cases, hair growth. This treatment has been shown to be quite effective in addressing male and female pattern baldness within 2 to 4 months with optimal results in 6 to 9 months.
PRP Rejuvenation Regeneration has been used clinically in a variety of medical specialities for over a decade. A patient’s medical and hair loss history and examination of the scalp should be obtained to determine if a patient is a good candidate for this procedure.
