Excessive Hair Loss & Hair Thinning
Hair loss can affect just your scalp or your entire body. It can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or medications. Hair Loss or Hair Thinning is a skin disorder that causes hair loss, most often on the scalp.
Male & Female Pattern Hair Loss
Pattern hair loss is hair loss that primarily affects the top and front of the scalp. Men who have hair loss tend to develop a receding hairline and bald spots. Women with female pattern baldness usually experience general hair thinning, which affects the volume of their hair.
Genetics usually plays a part in the development of male/female pattern baldness. You can inherit the genes that cause male/female pattern baldness from one or both of your parents. It’s also possible that hormones contribute to the condition.
Alopecia Areata Treatment
Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune disorder that often results in unpredictable hair loss. Alopecia means hair loss. When a person has a medical condition called alopecia areata, the hair falls out in round patches. The hair can fall out on the scalp and elsewhere on the body.
Usually, the bald patches appear suddenly and affect only a limited area. The hair grows back within 12 months or less. The cause of hair loss is probably an autoimmune reaction. This means the body's immune system incorrectly attacks the body's own cells. In the case of alopecia areata, the cells under attack are in the hair follicles (structures that grow hair), especially follicles within the scalp.
PRP for Hair Growth Treatment
PRP or platelet-rich plasma uses your own blood platelets to stimulate hair growth where you are balding. It also thickens your existing hair. Many people know platelet-rich plasma as the part of the blood that helps your body recover from injuries.
The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.
