Although some consider it to be a natural part of the aging process, hair loss can be really challenging for many people. Whether it’s due to genetics, medication, poor nutrition or medical conditions, both men and women can experience hair loss. If you are in this situation, consider platelet rich plasma therapy for safe and effective hair restoration.
PRP for Hair Loss
Hair loss does not discriminate and it’s equally traumatizing for both men and women. As we get older, our hair starts to thin and our once overly abundant hair follicles become inactive.
This can be due to a variety of factors, including:
- Hormone imbalances
- Medical conditions
Although hair loss can be disguised with topical applications and hairpieces, many people lose their confidence and have lower self-esteem. Wigs and extensions may be an option for women, but a full head of hair that’s all your own is understandably more ideal. Thankfully, there are many emerging treatments for both men and women that can stop hair loss and stimulate growth.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
PRP therapy is a restorative treatment that stimulates hair growth by promoting cell turnover and awakening inactive hair follicles. Since the properties in platelet rich plasma are derived from your own body, there is no risk of rejection.
Platelets found in the blood contain proteins that help stimulate growth factors. The concentration in PRP is much more potent when used as a hair restoration treatment. When someone chooses to undergo treatment with PRP, a small amount of blood is taken. The platelets and cells are then separated through a process called centrifugation.
Hair restoration with platelet rich plasma is a non-surgical procedure with virtually no downtime. After the PRP is ready, it’s skillfully injected into the preselected areas.
