Using PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
While the PRP rejuvenation facial is the most popular treatment using PRP therapy, this treatment can also be used to help with hair thinning and hair loss. Since PRP therapy stimulates the cell response that helps produce more collagen, this can help improve the health of your skin, joints, tissues, and hair.
Causes of Hair Loss
Hair loss is generally more common in men than women but women definitely experience the frustrations of hair loss as well. Many things can lead to some level of hair loss but some of those things are treatable or preventable. Some temporary hair loss triggers include physical or emotional stress, pregnancy, and taking too much vitamin A. Temporary hair loss is caused by a change to the hair’s programmed life cycle, which pushes more hair into the shedding phase of this cycle. Once you recover, your hair’s life cycle should reset back to normal.
On the nutrition side, deficiency in protein, iron, and B vitamins can also cause hair loss. This happens because the body will stop the hair growth process in order to conserve these vitamins and nutrients. You will need to identify these deficiencies as the cause of your hair loss with a physician but this is an easily correctable problem with supplementation.
Genetics also play a role in hair loss for males and females. Male pattern baldness is usually indicated by a receding hairline and is caused by a combination of hormones and genes. Females suffer from a condition called alopecia and is usually indicated by a widening of the part. Both males and females can seek treatments for these conditions and this is where PRP for hair loss can come in.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP therapy for hair loss works in a similar way as the PRP rejuvenation facial. The plasma is separated and then used in an injection under the scalp where hair loss is occurring. The doctor will perform four to six injections into the areas where there is hair loss or thinning. Using PRP for hair loss on the scalp can awaken and help the hair follicles start producing again, increase the circulation of blood to the hair follicles. This is a great option and a natural therapy that could help you see results with your hair loss.
