By age 35, 40% of men have visible hair loss, and it isn’t just a problem men face. By the time women reach age 40, roughly 40% have noticeable hair loss. Together more than 80 million men and women are dealing with some type of hair loss, from mild thinning to total baldness.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a safe and effective procedure that reverses hair loss. Read on to learn more about the ground-breaking treatment.

Types of hair loss

Hair loss falls into several categories. Here are some of the most common causes of hair loss.

Alopecia areata

This autoimmune disease causes hair to fall out in small patches. The exact cause of the condition is unknown; however, people who have other autoimmune diseases are at a higher risk of developing alopecia areata.

Telogen effluvium

Major physical stress can cause hair loss. Telogen effluvium may develop weeks after major surgery, infection, or illness. It commonly strikes after childbirth. You may notice hair on your pillow, in the shower, or in your hairbrush. While large amounts of hair may fall out, this type of hair loss is usually temporary. Telogen effluvium rarely causes bald spots. It’s typical to notice thinning, which can be significant.

Hereditary hair loss

Genetics is the most common cause of hair loss among men and women alike. Male-pattern baldness, which typically involves a receding hairline, a bald spot, or both, may begin as early as puberty, while female-pattern baldness most often happens later in life.

Symptoms of medical illness

Chronic health conditions and short-term medical problems can result in hair loss. Conditions that can cause hair loss include:

PRP therapy: revolutionary hair restoration

PRP therapy offers an extremely effective way to reverse hair loss and restore fuller hair, naturally. This revolutionary treatment uses highly concentrated levels of blood platelets that are derived from your own blood plasma.   These platelets contain powerful growth factors. These growth factors  play a key role in cell regeneration and repair.

When injected into affected areas of the scalp, PRP stimulates stem cell release. As the growth factors and stem cells work synergistically to renew and revitalize high-function cells in and around the affected hair follicles, they effectively trigger new hair growth, as well as, stimulating the hair follicle to remain in the anagen phase or growth phase of the hair cycle.

Most people see significant hair regrowth after a series of three or four PRP treatments, with continued improvement following subsequent maintenance sessions.

Easy, effective, and best of all, natural results

Dr. Maag creates your personal PRP serum of concentrated growth factors by spinning your blood in a centrifuge machine that mechanically separates platelets from other blood components.

Before the procedure begins, Dr. Maag administers a local anesthetic to ensure optimal comfort from start to finish. After gently cleansing your scalp with an antibacterial wash, Dr. Maag carefully injects your PRP serum into your scalp around your dormant hair follicles.

While the number of injections you receive is determined by your individual degree of hair loss, most people require one injection per square inch in areas of thinning or receding hair. Hair regrowth usually begins within a few weeks of your first session and improves with each successive treatment.
