A shrinking hair follicle may be the reason you’re experiencing hair thinning and loss. The change in hair follicle health may be due to a number of different reasons, including:
You may feel like you’re the only one who has to wear a hat to cover your receding hairline, but pattern baldness affects nearly 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States.
When it comes to treatment for your thinning hair, you have many options. At Lasting Impression Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Galope offers the power of PRP.
PRP is a blood product rich in special proteins that promote healing. PRP has been used as a treatment to stimulate healing after an injury and to reduce inflammation caused by arthritis. The special proteins in PRP work by maximizing your body’s own natural healing power to generate new cells and tissues.
When doctors were using PRP as a tool to promote healing, they noticed that it also improved hair thickness and that the concentrated proteins in PRP improved hair follicle health and lengthened the hair growth cycle. PRP therapy for hair loss and thinning may improve growth by as much as 30%.
PRP is autologous, which means you’re the source of the blood product. When using PRP for hair loss, Dr. Galope begins by taking a small sample of blood from your arm and then places it in a centrifuge that separates the protein- and platelet-rich portion of your blood from the liquid. The platelet-concentrated blood is then used for treatment.
To improve hair growth, PRP is injected directly into your scalp where you’re experiencing the hair thinning or loss. If you’re sensitive to pain, let Dr. Galope know so he can help ease your discomfort with a topical anesthetic.
You may need monthly injections for the first three months, then injections every 3-4 months over a two-year period to get the best results. Dr. Galope develops a personalized treatment plan for you based on your hair loss needs.
