Hair loss is a reality that plagues many men and women at any point in their life. It could be a natural result of age, a biological outcome, or the result of lifestyle factors. It’s an issue that, nevertheless, propels individuals to countermeasures, which can lead to disappointing results.
There are varying degrees of hair loss, from systematic hair loss, to pattern baldness and bald patches. In some cases, the hair loss is gradual, and in others it can be irreparable loss as a result of chemotherapy or hormonal interventions. In women, menopause can be a sudden and worrying trigger point for hair loss, which can contribute to anxiety and emotional shock. Hair loss is detrimental on the outside, as it is on the inside on an individual’s self esteem and confidence.
There are pharmaceutical options available; primary for women, but the options can be limiting and the costs sometimes heavy for long-term use. But now, there’s another option that men and women can turn to for hair loss remedy: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. This is a promising option because it does not require chemical intervention. In fact, the solution will only require the properties in your own blood.
PRP is an autologous procedure, meaning that the blood is taken from the individual seeking for hair loss measures. Our highly skilled physicians take a small amount of blood from the arm and spin it in a centrifuge machine to separate the plasma (the clear fluid) and platelets from the red blood cells, and then inject, proceeding anesthesia to the area suffering from hair loss. Because the PRP comes from your own plasma, it actually makes your body think that the platelets have gone to that area to heal an injury and promote hair growth. This attracts the other platelets in your body to that spot where they make a patch of fibrin and collagen.
PRP can also be used in conjunction with other techniques like hair transplant surgery, micro needling, and medication (ie Minoxidil) to maximize hair restoration. In fact, PRP as the primary procedure is very effective in thickening a receding hairline, restoring hair loss around the temples, and fixing inconsistent hair patches.
