Why do you experience hair loss?

Hair loss, medically known as alopecia areata, is a medical condition that occurs when your immune system mistakenly damages your hair follicles, causing hair shedding. Losing a few strands of hair once in a while is normal, but when chunks fall out without regrowth, you may be experiencing hair loss. The most prevalent cause of ha ross is male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness. While some individuals may start balding as early as puberty, most begin experiencing hair loss symptoms in their middle ages.

 Your alopecia may also be due to hormonal fluctuations, radiation therapy, extreme stress, specific medical conditions, Specific supplements and medicines, and tight hairstyles such as cornrows and pigtails. It may not always be easy to identify the triggers of your hair loss, but if you are concerned about the changes in the texture and thickness of your hair, inform your specialist at Prime Medi Spa.

Does PRP promote hair regrowth?

Platelet-rich plasma is a revitalizing natural treatment that utilizes growth factors from your blood to promote hair growth. Because your provider uses your blood, there are minimal chances of experiencing side effects. Your provider prepares our PRP treatment by isolating the solid components from your liquid plasma and concentrating your platelets which contain unique proteins known as growth factors. These proteins stimulate cell growth, making them practical for the correction of alopecia areata.

PRP also promotes blood circulation in the treatment site while minimizing scalp inflammation. Your specialist injects your scalp with the PRP solution to promote hair growth during your appointment. The procedure is painless, and you may start enjoying the results a few months after your treatment.

From what other hair restoration treatments can you benefit?

During your appointment, Dr. Taweh may conduct a comprehensive physical to identify the factors leading to your hair loss. After diagnosis, he may educate you about the available treatments and recommend the most effective. You may also discuss your hair goals which are crucial in creating your hair restoration treatment plan.

To boost hair growth, the team may recommend specific medications like anticoagulants, oral retinoids, beta-blockers, and anticonvulsants.

This treatment involves a device consisting of several tiny sterile needles that make small punctures on your skin to promote the regeneration of new blood vessels to promote blood circulation and stimulate cell growth.
