PRP To Get Your Hair Back
- Posted on: Jun 15 2019
Summer is here and so are the revealing clothing styles. Yes, it’s too hot to wear long pants and we’ve long since shed those cozy sweaters. Do you find yourself still holding onto those hats from cooler weather? Or pulling out baseball hats or other head-covering options? You can find a way to cover up, but deep down, do you want to?
Hair loss affects many Americans, but so many people just give up on trying to change their fate. Why do they do that? Because they’ve been told there’s nothing to do. But that’s not completely true. Keep reading to learn more about hair loss and what you can still try.
Generally, a good doctor can help you determine what is causing your hair to thin out. And while your doctor may be able to prescribe certain medications to help, not all options need to be offered by a doctor. First and foremost, before you jump at medications, understand your hair loss and your options to start your hair restoration journey right.
Not all hair loss is created equal. Hair loss can be caused by stress, shock, or even new medications, not only by hormones, as many people think. Look at where you’re losing hair, or ask a loved one to tell you what they see when they look at your head. The pattern your hair loss leaves on your scalp can indicate what is causing your hair to fade away. Again, understanding what is causing the hair loss can help you make a better plan. Because once we know why you’re losing hair, we can target that and help you recover.
Consider this: male pattern baldness leaves a very identifiable pattern behind on the top of the head. Generally, if it looks like male pattern baldness, then it is. You may be interested in trying either Rogaine or Propecia to help your hair grow back. But those aren’t great for everyone.
Trying platelet-rich plasma therapy may feel like the right choice for you if you’re looking to increase hair volume but don’t want to undergo expensive hair-restoration surgery to do so, or if you know medication hasn’t helped you in the past. PRP is not invasive and you don’t need to be sedated. PRP treatment uses your own blood plasma and allows it to penetrate the scalp and reach the hair follicles where it can stimulate the growth of new hair.
