Experiencing hair falling out every now and then is normal. While some hair loss is fine, excessive shedding may be a symptom of a more serious hair problem.
One of the best treatments used to treat hair loss today is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. It is a non-surgical regenerative medicine treatment used to treat a plethora of health conditions and achieve many cosmetic goals. It may be the answer to your hair loss problem!
What Is Hair Loss?
Let’s first talk about why people lose too much hair.
Hair loss or alopecia can have temporary or permanent effects on your scalp. The gradual thinning of your hair is a symptom of hair loss. It can come in the form of a receding hairline (frontal fibrosing alopecia) or as patchy bald spots (alopecia areata).
Many factors cause hair loss. Among them are :
- Hormonal changes
- Certain medications
- Certain hairstyles and treatments
Easy remedies often prevent hair loss, such as improving hair care habits by opting for milder hair products. However, some hair loss is not preventable. In such situations, you have to seek help from an expert to control your hair loss. Seeing a doctor for early treatment may prevent more hair loss in the future. Furthermore, your doctor can also assess the cause of your hair loss and find a solution to restore your hairline.
Many types of hair treatments are available for different kinds of hair problems. Some surgical procedures are effective but might involve a longer time for recovery. The good news is that non-surgical treatments can offer effective results without a long recovery. As such, your doctor may recommend stem cell or PRP therapy for your hair loss.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the hair regrowth treatments available at several NIVA Health offices. It is an easy, quick, and effective procedure to help with your hair loss.
PRP therapy for hair loss can help control thinning hair, postpartum hair loss, and a receding hairline. If you have undergone chemotherapy or the use of another medication, PRP can help promote hair growth and restore your natural hair. PRP is also an effective treatment for small areas with alopecia areata.
Experts from our clinics will get a sample of your blood and process it into a concentrated serum of proteins. This serum promotes tissue turnover in your body. To do that, they will load your blood sample in a centrifuge to isolate the growth-factor-rich platelets.
Our staff will apply a numbing cream on your scalp to minimize any discomfort with the procedure. Your doctor will put the platelet-rich plasma on top of your head and let it seep into your skin layers.
Numbness or tingling after the injection is normal. Results vary according to the patients, but it may take you 4-6 months to have visible results. PRP for hair loss is not a permanent treatment, so you will have to go back for sessions every 12-18 months. While PRP for hair loss is effective on its own, it works best when combined with stem cell therapy.
