Studies show more than half of all men and one in three women will experience hair loss in their lives. It’s a major source of insecurity for adult men and women worldwide, especially when it happens at a young age.
Thankfully, technology and science are producing simple, effective, non-invasive ways to promote hair growth by harnessing the power of PRP.
Hair loss and the use of PRP:
PRP hair restoration therapy harnesses the power of regenerative extracts originally used for sports injuries in elite athletes. Today, this naturally regenerative source of cellular building-blocks, is being used to stimulate hair growth and even facial rejuvenation. PRP treatments are quick, affordable and are administered with very little pain.
A hair restoration consultation with a Doctor or Naturopath at KOI Wellbeing can help you learn what’s possible based on your genetics, hair loss, age, and hormones.
This treatment can slow or reverse hair loss naturally and are collectively referred to as “regenerative” hair restoration treatments. PRP treatments are part of a larger body of medical research and cutting edge therapies that have proven effective in repairing, restoring and strengthening human cells and structures.
A patient prior to receiving a hair restoration treatment.
This patient was experiencing accelerated hair loss, thinning and temporal balding.
Deborah Wainwright, DNP, performs hair restoration treatment at KOI Wellbeing, San Diego:
Deborah uses a small needle to inject product into two areas of the temporal region, two areas where the hair was receding and also one injection into the crown of the head where thinning was beginning to occur.
5 Months Later:
Research and sharing of information of doctors practicing this leading edge treatment for balding concludes that the benefits of regenerative hair loss treatments produce hair growth over several months. After one treatment your hair may continue to grow or fill in for as much as 8 months.
This patient -like most who have PRP and other like treatments for hair loss- reported that the first thirty days were much the same in terms of hair loss. After thirty days he was encouraged to find less and less hair was falling out when brushing and showering.
By the second month he reported that the hair loss had stopped entirely. And by month three began to see “peach fuzz” and new hair growth where his scalp was entirely bald before treatment.
Here in month five we can see that he has experienced hair regrowth and thickening after just one treatment and is very happy with the outcome.

PRP is a safe and popular option for treating hair loss. Signaling your bodies natural response and regenerative powers, PRP introduces thousands of times more platelets than your body produces in an injury response. With more cellular building blocks to work with your body is able to produce more new cells and potentially awaken dormant hair follicles to grow hair where thinning or balding have occurred. PRP is also used to treat aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles and acne scarring.
Causes of Hair Loss
There’s a chance you’re genetically predisposed to hair thinning, which means you may see a progressive, gradual reduction in hair volume. In these instances, certain hair follicles are sensitive to hormones. This sensitivity causes follicles to gradually shrink and produce slightly finer and shorter hairs with each passing hair growth cycle.
This means your hair loss is the result of a trigger. Excessive daily hair shedding (which is know as telogen effluvium) is not reliant on having a genetic predisposition, it occurs as the result of an internal imbalance or upset, such as a nutritional deficiency, severe stress, crash dieting or an illness.
Further causes of hair loss include:
- Hormonal imbalance
- Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
- Iron deficiency or anemia
- Vitamin B12 deficiency
Treating these various causes by addressing their root cause and making adjustments to your diet, lifestyle and by using therapies such as bio-identical hormone balancing and other effective treatments we offer at KOI Wellbeing may prove effective in restoring your hair’s natural thickness and growth.
Hair loss is not always permanent and in cases where it is caused by some imbalance, stress or vitamin deficiency, a consultation with an MD or Naturopathic Doctor and functional lab testing may ultimately best address your underlying cause and remedy the problem.
In the interim, PRP and Amniotic Fluid hair restoration treatments can be used to stimulate hair regrowth and restore your hair’s thickness in conjunction with the root cause treatments prescribed or recommended by your doctor.
For hair loss that is more progressive and caused by aging or genetic predisposition Amniotic Fluid and PRP hair restoration alone is among the most effective treatment options available today.
