What Causes of Hair Loss and Hair Thinning?
Female and male pattern balding, technically known as androgenic alopecia, is the leading cause of hair loss, receding hairlines, and hair thinning. This type of hair loss is primarily genetic but can be acerbated by environmental factors. Androgenic alopecia damages hair in two main ways:
- It shortens the anagen phase of hair growth. This is the active growing phase of the hair growth cycle. This prevents hair from properly regrowing.
- It shrinks hair follicles. This is known as “follicular miniaturization” It shortens the hair shaft, causing hair to become shorter, thinner, and weaker.
What is PRP Therapy?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is processed from a sample of the patient’s blood, creating a serum rich in vital proteins, stem cells, and other growth factors. PRP is utilized in numerous therapeutic settings. This includes physical therapy, wherein the plasma promotes healing and tissue regeneration of sport’s injuries. PRP is also used in skin rejuvenation. This includes treatments such as the PRP facial (vampire facial) and PRP facelift (vampire facelift.)
PRP for Hair Loss and Hair Thinning
Similar to how PRP stimulates regeneration in sport’s injuries or skin, Platelet Rich Plasma can also stimulate hair growth. PRP therapy for hair loss or thinning begins with processing a sample of the patient’s blood to create a serum rich in growth factors. The plasma is then injected in the affected areas of the scalp. The outpatient procedure is fast, convenient, and painless. There is little to no downtime.
The plasma, rich in stem cells, proteins, and growth hormones rejuvenates hair growth in two main ways:
- PRP stimulates the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle. By extending the active growing phase of hair growth, dormant hair follicles awaken. This stops hair loss and promotes hair regrowth.
- PRP rejuvenates the hair follicle. It regenerates the hair shaft, making it more durable and healthier. This reverses follicular miniaturization. The result is thicker, denser hair.
