Curious about Hair Restoration Treatment, but not quite sure what it entails? You’ve come to the right place. So many people hold on to these common misconceptions that Hair Restoration Therapy involves taking hair from one part of your body and using it to refill the balding areas on your head. While hair transplants are a widely used technique for balding and thinning hair, Hair Restoration Treatment is a distinct procedure, here’s why: Platelet Rich Plasma injection technique can be done on men and women stimulating new hair growth and thickening existing follicles by using your own blood. The therapy has revolutionized the hair restoration world.
What are Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections you ask? Simply put, PRP is a non-surgical procedure whereby a serum containing your blood (which is drawn at the beginning of your appointment) is injected back into specific areas of the scalp. Working to stimulate new cell growth, the microneedling techniques offers an effective solution to those dealing with thinning hair, hair loss, male pattern baldness, and so on.
Most people deal with hair loss at some point in their lives. For some, thinning hair or going completely bald might be hereditary, while for others, it might simply be a symptom of aging. There are men and women who experience hair loss for a variety of other factors:
- Male pattern baldness (also called androgenic alopecia)
- Problems with diet (lack of iron, for example)
- Certain illnesses (including thyroid problems, anemia, anorexia)
- Emotional factors (such as stress and anxiety)
- Scalp infections
- Some medications (including blood thinners)
Innovative and completely ground breaking, the PRP procedure is incidentally quite simple, and if you start the treatments at the beginning stages when you first start to notice that your hair is thinning, you can improve texture and thickness as well as increase volume. It seems like a no-brainer, especially if you’re already on the market and shopping for hair restoration treatments. What are you waiting for?
It’s not just an aesthetic thing, because the truth is, some men look great with less hair. There are even some cultures that equate baldness with a certain level of sophistication or wisdom. There are women who are more attracted to men who have shed a little off the top. As for the women out there experiencing thinning hair or slowly shedding the entire mane, PRP hair restoration treatments might be exactly what you’ve been waiting for. Although Sinead O’Connor made it perfectly acceptable (and even desirable!) to shed all those tresses, I’d say the best part of PRP hair restoration is that now you have options. You can choose to go full GI Jane or attempt a flock of hair akin to Rapunzel (well not quite, but you get the picture). Having options is empowering… call or email to learn more about what we can do for your hair.
