Are you embarrassed by your thinning hair or receding hairline and are looking for a hair restoration option? Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic problem traditionally treated with invasive procedures like surgical hair restoration or prescription drugs. Quite often, these options are ineffective and have unwanted side effects. Our medical staff in St Petersburg, Florida now offers regenerative medicine options that naturally treat the underlying cause of your hair loss or signs of balding.
Hair Loss Treatment
Hair loss can be very frustrating for both men and women, especially when you’ve tried everything, but nothing works. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can potentially restore hair growth, with visible results in a matter of months. Once injected into your scalp, PRP works by stimulating the growth of new cells and hair follicles. PRP is a viable option to treat thinning hair and hair loss in both men and women.
PRP injections contain platelets and healing growth factors that promote tissue regeneration and revitalize hair follicles, encouraging dormant hair back into the growth stage. With PRP therapy, you get an affordable, non-surgical option to regrow your hair without harmful side effects.
The process is quite simple. It involves taking a small amount of your blood and spinning it to separate platelets from other blood cells. We then inject this healing solution into areas of your scalp that are bald or thinning. A local anesthetic may be used to minimize any discomfort from the injections. However, the procedure is relatively painless and quick.
As an all-natural hair replacement therapy, PRP is a simple hair restoration procedure with outstanding benefits, such as:
- Increased blood supply to your follicles to spur hair growth
- Activates and maintains the growth phase
- Decreases hair loss
- Increases thickness
- Painless, non-invasive treatments
- No downtime
PRP injections are a suitable all-natural, non-surgical hair restoration technique for the following hair loss conditions:
- Pattern baldness
- Receding hairline
- Hair thinning
Side effects of platelet-rich plasma hair replacement treatments are uncommon, as no foreign substances are used during the session. PRP injections contain components medically processed from your own blood.
What Causes Hair Loss?
It’s reasonable to lose a small amount of hair daily. However, excessive hair loss may be caused by your genes. Male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness may be inherited, resulting in marked hair loss as you get older.
Other common causes of hair loss include:
- Prescription medication
- Protein and iron deficiencies
- Drastic weight loss
- Surgery or illness
- Using harsh chemicals on the hair
- Years of harsh styling techniques
- Thyroid diseases
- Scalp infections
