HAIR RESTORATION

IMPROVE REGROWTH WITH PLATELET RICH PLASMA

Everyone experiences hair loss. In fact, it’s normal to lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day, but significant hair loss can affect our confidence.  

Luckily, we offer a safe,

non-invasive, effective hair loss treatment.

Causes for Hair Loss

Hair loss is extremely common, it usually happens when the normal process of hair growth gets disrupted. From genetics, nutrition, hormone imbalances, medications, stress, and weight loss to medical conditions, such common causes of hair loss may make you feel the effects of aging and lower self-confidence. However, according to the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, "In the last 5 to 7 years there has been a boom in the understanding of hair loss."

Genetics and Hormones are the building blocks of your biology, from your hair and eye color to your height, even things like sleep patterns, taste receptors, and hair growth! The most common genetic cause of hair loss is hereditary-pattern baldness, a natural condition that begins in your twenties and thirties. For hair loss in women, the condition is also known as androgenetic alopecia.The same thing happens in men, but we call it male pattern baldness.

Upon further research to understand the genetic and hormonal causes, it has been discovered that hair loss typically is caused by testosterone fluctuations, which disrupts the normal hair growth cycle and produces shorter and thinner hair, eventually halting hair growth entirely in parts of the scalp. Baldness is a condition that depends on your family history, and contrary to popular belief, is inherited from both sides of the family than just the mother's.

Everyone knows the old adage "you are what you eat", which is true when it comes to your body as well as your hair. Proper Nutrition not only keeps your body functioning to the best of its ability, but also impacts nail and hair growth. Many people who experience hair loss because they may be lacking essential nutrients in their diet. Diets rich in iron, zinc, fatty acids, niacin, and biotin can help reduce the effects of hair loss, but if the symptoms continue, further lifestyle changes may be necessary.

As to be expected, Medications can come with a slue of side effects, including but not limited to hair loss. Such medications include anticoagulants, anti-convulsants, anti-arrhythmia medications, antacids, anti-fungals, steroid treatments, anti-fungal treatments, blood pressure medications, and cholesterol medications. In most cases, these side effects are temporary and reversible with help from prp injections.

Small amounts of Stress can result from parts of your be a small part of the daily routine, like work and family struggles, but excessive stress is certainly linked to hair loss. Telogen effluvium type hair loss occurs when significant stress puts the hair follicles in a resting phase, which can cause sudden hair loss when washing or brushing hair. If the stress can be maintained and properly handled, hair loss can be reversed. However, for hair loss caused by extreme stress, hair regrowth treatments may be necessary.

Hair loss after Weight Loss is often caused by Telogen Effluvium (mentioned above), when the body experiences physical stress from a fluctuating BMI. However, when the body stabilizes from the weight fluctuations, and proper nutrients are being absorbed, such hair loss effects can be reversed.

When most people think of hair loss, the first thing that comes to mind is aging men. Bald patches, receding hairlines, and overall hair thinning are telltale signs that the hair regenerative process is slowing down. This is known as Male Pattern Baldness, or androgenetic alopecia in men, when the body produces a bi-product called DHT. The hair begins to thin, and the hair follicles get smaller. Baldness usually begins on the front and top of the head, where the follicles are more sensitive to hormones. However, there is a way to treat hair loss, by getting the dormant follicles to regenerate through PRP. Hair transplants can also be a treatment option.

Everyone experiencing loss of hair is a candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma treatments, a safe and effective procedure for all, but recent hair loss is more easily treated than long-standing hair loss.

Hair Restoration / Regrowth Treatments

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) was discovered and first used in the 70’s, started gaining popularity in the 90’s, and has been widely used since for the last decade for its ability to speed the healing process after trauma or surgery. 

PRP treatments are the go-to method for reversing the effects of hair loss. To obtain PRP, your blood is drawn and spun down in a centrifuge, separating the blood from the plasma rich with platelets and growth factors. The Platelet Rich Plasma is then re-injected into the scalp at multiple sites where hair loss has occurred. 

PRP treatments usually takes less than thirty minutes, and can be done in-home for the most comfortable experience. Some patients may notice improvement after one treatment, but monthly treatments for three to four months are needed to achieve optimal results.

Patient’s can anticipate 30 to 40 percent hair regrowth. We recommend continued injections every three to six months thereafter to maintain the effects. The maintenance schedule will depend on your genetics, pattern and amount of hair loss, age, and hormones. 

Please anticipate a thorough consultation with your practitioner prior to starting hair loss treatment. If we have concerns that you may be suffering from diabetes, thyroid disease, lupus or other medical conditions associated with hair loss, we will be sure to make you aware and ask that you follow up with your primary care physician. Additionally, we want to make sure you are happy with your restorative treatments. You may not be a good candidate for hair loss treatment if you have thyroid disease or lupus. With these conditions, the treatments are not harmful, but may not be as effective as hair loss with these conditions continues over time.
