Hair Loss Treatment
Have you ever wondered what to do about that receding hairline? Are you worried endless about your thinning hair? Worry no more now. Hair loss is now recognized as a remedial problem and can be treated for both men and women now. Hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia(heredity hair loss for men and women) can now be successfully treated. PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy uses the patient’s own stem cells to initiate hair re-growth. When this treatment is supplemented with Low Level Laser Therapy devices, there is a marked increase in positive results.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a component of your blood that is responsible for functions like blood clotting and healing. It initiates a natural state of healing. When this plasma is isolated from blood, it is then injected in its concentrated form into the designated sites on the scalp. Hair loss may occur as a result of follicle miniaturization where hair follicles enter into its resting phase (Due to aging or hereditary factors). When PRP is injected, these follicles are once again stimulated to the hair growth phase. This pretty much sums up Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy that treats hair loss along with sustaining hair growth.
How is PRP treatment offered?
PRP is a promising, therapeutic option for non-invasive hair loss treatment and is still in its initial stages of research and study. Ideally this treatment is offered in 8 sittings spread across 4 months. A light anesthetic is administered on the scalp and PRP is injected in areas of miniaturized follicles.
What is Low Level Laser Therapy?
Low Level Laser therapy is a laser cap within which red light wavelength (650nm of light) is emitted directly on the hair follicles to stimulate hair growth. The low level lasers stimulate cell metabolism by increasing oxygen and blood circulation to the hair follicles. When this therapy is administered in tandem with PRP, the results are amplified multifold.
