With a growing number of hair loss treatments for men and women, such as hims®, Keeps, Roman®, and ROGAINE®, the ongoing question remains, what is the best hair loss treatment and will it work for me? For those who have early stage male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss, the progression of hair loss and thinning can be quite concerning. Platelet Rich Plasma, administered via scalp injections to the hair follicles,is an effective way to stop hair loss from advancing as well as promote hair regrowth. PRP treatments work by using the patients own plasma to promote healing and growth in specific areas of the body, and using a thin needle can be applied to the hair follicle. The growth factors are proven to deliver hair regrowth results for both men and women.
While hereditary is the most common cause of hair loss, various factors play a role in hair loss. In some cases, there may be triggers for hair loss linked to hormones, nutrition, and stress. Even the seasons can cause hair loss! During the autumn and winter, some may shed more hair as part of a normal phase. It is ultimately best to consult with an expert if you are experiencing hair loss symptoms such as thinning, shedding, patchiness, receding and balding.
Healthy hair relies on circulation to the scalp. However, hereditary baldness is not caused by circulation, and in most cases the hair follicle remains, although miniaturized. Using PRP treatments at the hair root to reactivate these hair follicles and produce new hair growth in the treated areas.
Some people may have PRP treatments in combination with a medication or topical solutions such as minoxidil or finasteride. Hair transplant patients also may elect for PRP treatments to enhance the results of hair restoration. PRP treatments can also be used for the beard.
