When it comes to thinning hair, the sad truth is not everyone can rock the “bald look.” Often, when bald spots begin to form, they tend to do a number on our self esteem. While there are many over-the-counter and prescription treatments for baldness, there is little agreement over what actually works. The silver lining is that while most of these questionable treatments rely on chemicals to promote hair growth, natural hair loss solutions are out there and Laser Aesthetics is happy to provide them!
Treatments for Thinning Hair
When it comes to hair restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has shown promising results. This minimally invasive thinning hair treatment works by using your own PRP to promote the growth of new hair follicle in thinning areas. When applied to the scalp, the concentrated platelets and proteins also promote the strength of your remaining hair, leading to more resilient roots.
PRP is a safe treatment for many patients with hair loss. However patients with active scalp infections or histories of shingles on the scalp, diabetes, and coagulation disease are not good candidates. Similarly, those on blood thinning and/or immunosuppressive medications may not apply. Please note: this treatment will not help with hair loss if follicles are completely lost. As such, it is best to try PRP as soon as possible (when hair loss first begins).
The PRP Process
The thinning hair treatment process will begin with the extraction of blood. After drawing blood, it will undergo a centrifuge to separate the good platelets from the bad. Following the centrifuge separation, the platelets will be injected into your scalp. A local anesthetic will be applied to minimize pain and discomfort, but bleeding is still likely during treatment. For best results, 3 treatments at 6 week intervals are needed. Additional treatments can be done after 6 months or a year if necessary.
Thinning Hair Restoration Results
Recovering from the thinning hair treatment involves some soreness and swelling of the scalp. However, these side effects will only last for 6 hours after the procedure and should be completely resolved in 2 days. During this time, it’s important to avoid vigorous physical activity and sweating to prevent additional irritation. Results vary from patient to patient, but can usually be seen in as early as 1 to 2 months. Optimal results can be seen roughly 3 to 6 months after the procedure.
