Hair loss can affect our self-confidence, especially if it starts at a younger age. It can happen for a variety of reasons, from genetics to age to stress, and it does not discriminate between men and women. Thanks to modern aesthetic practices, we have two treatments that provide significant results for hair loss.
What Is Hair Loss?
You may not realize it, but if you’re losing more than 100 strands of hair per day, then you’re experiencing hair loss. While there are many causes of hair loss, the most common type is called male pattern baldness (MPB). This occurs when a man’s body begins to produce too much of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which can cause the hair follicles to shrink and eventually stop producing new hairs.
What Causes Hair Loss?
While there are many possible causes of hair loss, the most common culprit is Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness. A combination of genetics and hormones causes this form of hair loss and typically affects men over 50. However, it can also occur in younger men as well as women.
PRP For Hair Restoration (Platelet Rich Plasma)
An innovative hair restoration procedure we offer is the PRP treatment for hair loss, which uses a patient’s own platelets to stimulate new growth. The platelet-rich plasma is extracted and then administered to the treatment area through injection or through the “meso gun method” in less than an hour. The platelet-rich plasma helps strengthen and thicken hair follicles and may stimulate new growth.
Theradome Laser Cap
The Theradome Laser Cap is an at-home solution for hair loss. The laser light targets the stem cells at the base of hair follicles, allowing the formation of a new photonic pathway that can restore hair to a healthy state. Safe and effective, the Theradome is a technologically advanced laser hair growth treatment.
Hair Loss FAQ
What is the most effective treatment for hair loss?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a promising treatment for hair loss. PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood and contains high concentrations of growth factors. These growth factors are thought to stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. PRP therapy is generally safe and well-tolerated, with few side effects.
How long does PRP take to regrow hair?
The success rate of PRP injections for hair restoration is between 70-90%. It tends to work better in younger patients experiencing the effects of genetic baldness and thinning, but even older individuals can experience positive results with this treatment.
