Why am I losing so much hair?
In some cases, hair loss is a natural and expected side effect of aging. However, many men and women experience hair loss earlier or more severely than expected. There are a number of potential reasons why your hair may be thinning or falling out, including:
- Nutritional deficiency
- Hormone imbalance
- Certain medications
- Underlying condition
- Damaging hair products
Depending on the cause and severity of your hair loss, you may be a candidate for PRP therapy for hair restoration.
How does PRP work for hair growth?
PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, is a natural substance found in your blood. When isolated, PRP offers remarkable regenerative benefits, encouraging cell regeneration, healing, and more. In addition to stimulating natural hair growth, PRP therapy is often used to help athletes recover from injuries faster, boost the body’s healing process after surgery, and alleviate arthritis symptoms. PRP can even be added to a microneedling treatment to amplify its effects.
When it comes to PRP for hair loss, the treatment begins by drawing a small tube of blood from the patient’s arm. A centrifuge machine is then used to isolate the PRP, after which time Dr. Phillips strategically injects the serum into areas of thinning hair or hair loss. Over the next several weeks or months, the platelet-rich plasma stimulates the body’s regenerative processes to accelerate natural hair growth, giving patients near Temecula, Menifee, and Lake Elsinore, CA a fuller, denser, healthier head of hair.
How long does PRP hair restoration last?
A full round of PRP hair restoration typically involves 2 – 4 sessions spaced about 4 – 6 weeks apart. On average, the effects of PRP for hair growth can last for about 18 – 24 months. After this time, yearly maintenance sessions of PRP hair restoration can help to prolong the patient’s initial results and give them beautiful, natural hair growth they can enjoy for years to come.
