PRP for Hair Restoration
- Posted on: Jun 15 2019
Summer is here and so are the skimpy clothes. It’s too hot to wear long pants and we’ve shed those cozy sweaters long ago. But, do you find yourself still holding onto those hats from cooler weather? Hair loss affects many Americans, but so many people just give up on trying to change their fate. Why? Because they’ve been told there’s nothing they can do. But that’s not completely true. Keep reading to learn more.
A doctor can help you determine what is causing your hair to thin and fade away. And while your doctor may prescribe certain medications, not all options need to be offered by a doctor. First and foremost, understanding your hair loss and your options will be key to starting your hair restoration journey.
Hair loss can be caused by stress, shock, or even new medications, not only by hormone levels, as many people think. Look at where you’re losing hair, or ask a loved one to tell you what they see. The pattern it leaves on your scalp often indicate what is causing your hair to fade away. Again, the key is understanding what is causing the hair loss. Because once we know why you’re losing hair, we can help you formulate a plan to get it back.
For example, male pattern baldness leaves a very identifiable pattern behind on the top of the head. Generally, if it looks like male pattern baldness, then it is. You may be interested in trying either Rogaine or Propecia to help your hair grow back. But those aren’t suitable for everyone.
Maybe you’ve tried Rogaine or Propecia, and still have the balding that you’ve been trying to get rid of for years. Or, maybe you’re interested in more natural remedies that pose fewer side effects. PRP (or platelet-rich plasma) is a great option to help restore your hair that is low-risk, low-allergy, and fairly quick to perform.
Trying platelet-rich plasma therapy may feel like the right choice for you if you’re looking to increase hair volume but don’t want to undergo expensive surgery to do so, or if you know medication hasn’t helped you in the past. The best part is PRP is not invasive and you don’t need to be sedated for the procedure. PRP treatment uses your own blood plasma and allows it to penetrate the scalp and reach the hair follicles where it can stimulate the growth of new hair.
