Hair loss has many causes ranging from family genetics to stress and medical issues. In men, androgenic alopecia usually begins with hair loss at the crown of the scalp and proceeds with a receding hairline along the temples, but male pattern alopecia is found in women as well. Both can be devastating to self confidence and for men with hereditary baldness, a thinning and receding hairline can begin in their early twenties, giving a much older appearance.
In women, this infrequent but not uncommon condition can be devastating. There have been many proffered solutions for these conditions over the years with measured results, but platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is bringing impressive results for both men and women who are seeing their hair thinning.
The exciting non-surgical therapeutic option begins with Dr. Charles Lee drawing blood and centrifuging it to collect platelet rich plasma that is then injected using a thin needle into the scalp after it is numbed. (Get more information on how PRP works)
With success at stimulating growth factors, regenerating tissue and promoting healing, PRP is successful in promoting hair growth where it is currently thinning, by strengthening the hair follicles. Completely bald patients will not benefit from PRP treatments since it will not grow hair on an existing bald patch.
The recommended treatment plan typically consists of more than one treatment a few months apart. Dr. Lee will apply an anesthesia block to prevent any pain and may prescribe Minoxidil and Propecia, both of which promote hair growth during the treatment period. PRP is sometimes combined with additional hair growth treatments.
