Hair Loss Treatments with PRP

Hair loss is something that nobody wants in their life. It starts with the thinning of hair, and then suddenly your hair starts to fall during a shampoo or when you're brushing. According to many fashion gurus, hairstyle is one of the most important parts of our personality but there can be certain health or genetic conditions that cause hair to fall out prematurely. So, what can you do to stop your hair from falling? The answer: getting our PRP Hair Treatment

PRP is an effective treatment for androgenic (male pattern and female pattern) hair loss. Male and female pattern baldness is more common than you think but it can be embarrassing and/or lowers one’s self-confidence. Hair transplantation is extremely effective, but very costly. Topical medications are somewhat helpful, but have to be applied daily and can leave the scalp feeling greasy. Prescription medications can slow the hair loss and even result in some regrowth.

So what to do? When you are searching for 'safe and affordable hair loss treatments near me', you know you're in safe hands with us. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) involves taking one’s blood, concentrating the platelets, and injecting it into the vascular layer of the scalp. By searching for ‘PRP hair treatment near me’, you can easily find us!

Male and female pattern baldness is common and can be embarrassing and/or lowers one’s self-confidence. Topical minoxidil has been available for decades with moderate results. Androgenic alopecia, both male pattern baldness and female pattern alopecia, have several treatment options. It was originally used as a blood pressure medication and it was found that patients who used it grew hair. Dr. Bader almost always recommends the 5% preparation and not the 2%. Women apply the 5% minoxidil once daily, while men apply it twice daily. Results take 3-6 months to appreciate and the product must be used indefinitely or results will be lost.

Finasteride, which was originally used for the treatment of an enlarged prostate, has been shown to be very helpful as a treatment for male pattern baldness. While there is some anecdotal reports of improvement for female pattern hair loss, studies have often failed to reproduce these findings. This medication is very inexpensive (often less than $25 a year) and fairly effective. Like minoxidil, results take many months and, if seen, the medication must be taken indefinitely or any results will be lost.

Now there is a safe and affordable option that can grow hair back using one’s own blood. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) involves taking one’s blood, concentrating the platelets, and injecting it into the vascular layer of the scalp. PRP is an effective treatment for androgenic (male pattern and female pattern) hair loss. There are now several studies showing their effectiveness, but treatments must be repeated to maintain results.

Hair transplantation is extremely effective, but very costly. Topical medications are somewhat helpful, but have to be applied daily and can leave the scalp feeling greasy. Prescription medications can slow the hair loss and even result in some regrowth with minimal side effects. Dr. Bader will go over all of your options and together you will pick the treatment that is best for your needs.
