What causes hair loss?
Many factors can cause hair loss. Some people are genetically dispositioned for thinning hair. Some of the other causal factors include:
It isn’t always easy to determine the cause of thinning hair. If you’re troubled by changes in your hair's thickness or growth rate, call Prime Medi Spa to book a consultation with Dr. Taweh.
How can PRP assist with hair restoration?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a revitalizing medicine treatment that uses a solution made from a small sample of your own blood. Because PRP is formulated from your body’s own cells, treatments have little chance of side effects. The process of creating PRP isolates the solid components of your blood from the liquid plasma. The platelets are then gathered and reintroduced to the cleared plasma.
Platelets are filled with special proteins called growth factors. They prompt new cell growth, so they are so effective in treating hair loss. PRP also spurs your body to increase blood flow to the treatment area while also reducing inflammation. These changes further enhance new hair growth and reduce the lost hair volume because of scalp inflammation. During hair restoration, PRP is injected across the surface of your scalp. The process is not painful and results will develop over a few months.
What other treatments can help with hair restoration?
During your consultation, you’ll learn which options are a good match for your hair restoration needs and goals. Some medications can help boost hair growth as well as topical treatments. Microneedling is another treatment that can help with hair restoration. This medical aesthetic treatment uses a device covered in small sterile treatment needles to create tiny punctures into the deeper layers of skin.
Your body responds with a robust healing reaction, creating new blood vessels. These new blood vessels improve circulation and boost new cell growth. Low-level laser therapy is another innovative treatment for hair loss. A special device directs concentrated beams of light into your scalp, stimulating new hair growth. Laser therapy does not create uncomfortable heat and does not disrupt or damage surrounding tissues.
There’s no need for advance preparation or recovery time. If you’d like more information about how to slow hair loss and prompt new hair growth, call Prime Medi Spa to book a visit. Quick and easy online booking is also available.
