Hair loss is often thought of as a problem that mostly happens to older men but in reality it’s a problem that both men and women face and not just when they’re older. According to the Mayo Clinic, hair loss can result from a number of different factors including stress, hormonal imbalance, medications and genetics. Whatever the reason, the condition is troubling for both sexes and there have been few advancements beyond topical solutions like Rogaine and hair transplant surgery.
One of the more recent and promising methods to address hair loss in men and women is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair restoration, a non-surgical and completely natural approach that uses the patient’s own blood platelets to stimulate hair regrowth.
The in-office procedure is very simple: the patient’s blood is drawn and then processed in a centrifuge to extract all of red blood cells, leaving only the platelet-rich serum. This solution is then injected into the patient’s scalp after a numbing cream has been applied. Because the serum is rich in many different growth factors, it stimulates the hair follicles to grow. Schedule an in-office consultation today to see if this exciting new procedure is right for you.
Does the PRP Hair Restoration procedure hurt (during and after)?
Most of our patients only experience mild discomfort at the injection site after the numbing cream has been applied. This discomfort dissipates quickly and you should feel minimal sensitivity as soon as 24-hours after the procedure.
Will PRP Hair Restoration work for hormonal hair loss in women?
PRP Hair Restoration works by recruiting new hairs to grow, encouraging your existing hair to stay and also stimulates the stem cells around the hair follicles to thicken. It works in this way for both men and women and is a completely natural, non-surgical procedure.
