Enjoy hair restoration using PRP treatment
Hair loss is one of the most common complaints people have as they get older, along with aging skin. It can be a source of embarrassment, insecurity, and discomfort for both men and women. But with continued advances in technology and medical knowledge, there are now more treatment options available than ever before. At Hush Beauty of Vancouver, British Columbia, Dr. Rose Wong and her team can help with hair regrowth using PRP, or “platelet-rich plasma.”
What causes hair loss?
First, it is essential to understand the cause of hair loss to determine if plasma therapy for hair will be beneficial to a patient. The single most common reason for hair loss is genetics. That’s because hair follicles are sensitive to hormones, and changes in hormone levels can cause them to shrink and stop producing hair. Other causes of hair loss include stress, malnutrition, certain medications, scalp infections and skin diseases. Once you have been evaluated by a medical professional to determine the cause of your hair thinning and loss, our team can then help make treatment recommendations. Our team at Hush Beauty MD encourages patients to consider the benefits of PRP for hair loss.
Plasma hair restoration as a solution to thinning or hair loss
Plasma therapy for hair loss is a new, cutting-edge treatment that uses the patient’s blood to encourage hair growth. Plasma is the liquid portion of blood that contains white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. Platelets are essential for clotting and healing wounds, and they also have growth factors that can help stimulate new hair growth.
A small amount of blood is taken from the patient to perform PRP therapy for hair loss. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which is used to spin it to separate the different components. The platelet-rich plasma is then administered into the scalp in the area of hair loss. The PRP injections stimulate the hair follicles to grow new hair.
