Hair Restoration Treatment
More then 85% of men will experience some level of hair loss at some point in their lives. Some men will even start losing hair before they hit their 21st birthday! There are many reasons why some men experience hair loss, including:
- Male pattern baldness (also called androgenic alopecia)
- Problems with diet (lack of iron, for example)
- Certain illnesses (including thyroid problems or anemia)
- Emotional factors (such as stress and anxiety)
- Scalp infections
- Some medications (including blood thinners)
The most common cause of hair loss in men is male pattern baldness, which involves the hereditary weakening and shrinking of hair follicles. 95% of all men experiencing hair loss suffer from male pattern baldness.
The PRP Therapy is an innovative hair restoration treatment that works by injecting platelet rich plasma into specific areas of the scalp. Platelet Rich Plasma injections are made of a serum containing the patient’s own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth. The procedure is meant to:
- Recruit new hairs to grow
- Invigorate and revitalize existing hair
- Stimulate the stem cells that are around the follicles to get thicker
The therapy is non-surgical, with little to no side effects or risk of allergic reaction*.
What Are PRP Injections for Male Pattern Baldness?
Human blood is composed of red blood cells (93%), white blood cells (6%), and platelets and plasma (1%). Platelet rich plasma (or PRP), concentrates on separating that 1%, creating a concentrated serum of platelets. Although they are known for their coagulating properties (to stop bleeding), platelets also release growth factors that recruit reparative cells and, hence, revitalize and heal tissues. In other words, platelets are cells that help soft tissue to heal and grow new cells. For this reason, PRP injections have a long history of success in treating sports injuries, arthritis, tendinitis, and other painful conditions.
In cosmetic medicine, PRP injections are used to treat specific areas of the skin to promote collagen growth and regenerate tissue. In hair restoration therapy, PRP results have been very promising and offer an effective solution to hair growth and thickening for a majority of patients.
PRP Injections are highly effective for both men and women. Benefits include*:
- No risks of allergic reaction
- Minimal pain or discomfort
- Safe, non-invasive and non-surgical treatment
- Minimal side effects
Injections and Microneedling
PRP is a groundbreaking medical treatment that improves hair growth* and naturally reverses thinning hair.
When PRP is inserted into the skin, the injection causes a small injury that activates the platelets and allows them to do what they do best: generate growth. Platelets do this by releasing healing proteins that are called growth factors. When platelet levels are extremely above their normal concentration (which is what happens during the PRP treatment), it boosts the follicle’s ability to become thicker.
