PRP for Hair Loss
Whether you are male or female, young or old, hair loss can be an embarrassing thing to experience at any time in one’s life. While hair trends fluctuate throughout the decades, on a purely biological level, a luscious head of hair can be preferable to men and women alike because it is a biological marker for youth and health. Thus, when we are faced with hair loss on any level, and for any reason, it can cause us to feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Eastside Wellness & Aesthetics wants all its patients to feel youthful and vibrant no matter what their situation regarding hair loss. Lucky for us all, there are currently exciting advancements in the field of hair restoration giving those struggling with hair loss a plethora of options.
One such procedure that has proven to be especially beneficial for restoring hair is using platelet rich plasma, or PRP. Platelet-rich plasma is blood (or plasma) that has been separated using a centrifuge to specifically pinpoint and isolate the platelets for usage. Platelets, also known as growth factors or proteins, are extremely beneficial for stimulating hair follicles to produce new hair growth. By injecting PRP into the scalp, patients can experience an increase in natural hair growth prompted by growth factors from their own body. PRP procedures can also be combined with other hair restoration procedures to produce even more favorable results.
These procedures include:
- Hair Transplant Surgery
- Medications to assist with hair growth, such as Propecia and Monodixil
