Hair loss is hereditary, and it’s common with age because your hair follicles get smaller as you get older. Smaller hair follicles mean thinner hair, and hair continues getting thinner and finer until it stops growing completely.
Androgenic alopecia is the medical term for hair loss, and it can affect both men and women. The symptoms of hair loss are different for men and women, but it can hurt your self-esteem, no matter your gender.
Male-pattern hair loss typically begins where your hairline meets your forehead. Your hairline recedes in an “M” shape and may eventually result in baldness. Female-pattern hair loss often starts with a widening part on top of your head and continues with the overall thinning of hair.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration is a type of regenerative medicine that puts your body’s natural healing properties to work regrowing hair that’s disappeared due to genetic hair loss.
Platelets are elements naturally found in your blood that help your body heal from injury. They bring healing factors to the injured site, which work to restore damaged tissue and grow new, healthy tissue.
When used in hair restoration procedures, PRP helps heal damaged and weak hair follicles. Treatment boosts hair growth by stimulating your hair follicles to produce the hair you had many years ago.
PRP hair restoration can deliver natural-looking results with no surgery, no chemicals, and no downtime, and it’s effective for men and women.
Hair restoration at Nigro Dermatology Group is a multi-step treatment that utilizes elements from your blood to help regrow hair naturally. Your doctor begins by taking a sample of your blood, then spins it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets.
They combine the concentrated platelets into a serum, which is packed with growth factors. The serum is injected into your scalp, wherever your hair is thinning.
The PRP serum increases blood flow to your scalp, stimulates hair follicles, and triggers the growth of thicker, fuller hair. The procedure is minimally invasive, and there’s absolutely no downtime required.
Because every person presents differently, your doctor recommends a custom treatment plan to fit your needs. Many men and women see optimal results with a series of PRP hair restoration treatments spaced out over several weeks.
You don’t have to settle for thinning hair. PRP hair restoration could be the solution for you. Schedule your consultation by calling Nigro Dermatology or request an appointment online.
