Most Women with Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) have hormone imbalances. FPHL is a common condition affecting up to approximately 50% of women over 40 years of age. This type of hair thinning often occurs on the top of the head, particularly in the crown area, instead of along the hairline. Thinning may be present uniformly throughout the scalp, or it may show up in patches. FPHL can be caused by a number of factors that are linked to the actions of hormones, including pregnancy, menopause, and thyroid conditions.
Hair follicles thrive on the nutrition that is received from a healthy blood supply. If a patient’s own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is introduced to damaged hair follicles, the body’s natural healing mechanism is stimulated to bring nutrition and healing to the damaged follicles. This can stimulate hair growth and prevent further hair loss.
PRP Hair Restoration Therapy offers a very safe and effective alternative to Hair Transplant Surgery by using your own body’s Growth Factors and Stem Cells to stimulate Hair Regrowth. There are virtually no risk factors associated with this therapy because PRP is completely autologous. Meaning it is taken from your own blood with no additives. There is no risk for an allergic reaction and there is minimal downtime associated with the procedure. There may be slight swelling at the very small injection sites immediately following the treatment. Most of our Patients find it totally painless and are able to go about their lives immediately after this natural treatment!
Our experienced Nurse Practitioner, Melissa McKinney, uses an FDA approved PRP centrifuge to separate your red blood cells from your platelet rich plasma. This is all accomplished with a regular blood draw – like when you get a blood test! These platelet rich proteins are then injected (after the numbing process) into the areas desired. PRP has been proven to promote hair growth through cell replication, stem cell production, and enhanced blood vessel growth. All of these factors help the hair follicles regenerate hair more quickly and stimulate underachieving hair follicles to start growing hair.
