Losing your hair can be an emotional experience and result in a loss of confidence in your appearance. Hair loss, also known as alopecia, can affect both men and women of all ages, and can be the result of genetic disposition, stress, trauma, or significant weight loss. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments to help with hair restoration, such as platelet-rich plasma therapy.
If you or a loved one is experiencing hair loss due to genetic disposition to pattern hair loss or other conditions, the expert team at All About Me Medical Day Spa may be able to help! Contact our office in San Diego today to learn about our hair restoration treatment options or to schedule a consultation with a member of our team.
What causes hair loss?
Hair loss can occur in both men and women as a result of genetic disposition to pattern hair loss, illness, stress, anemia, or trauma. The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary disposition to alopecia due to overproduction of dihydrotestosterone. This overproduction of testosterone can trigger the gene that causes hair loss and result in a reduction or thinning of the hair. Men typically experience hair loss in the form of a receding hairline or balding at the top of their heads, while women generally experience hair loss as a visible thinning of hair over the crown of the head.
At All About Me Medical Day Spa, we are committed to helping our patients look and feel like the best versions of themselves. We offer platelet-rich plasma therapy as a hair restoration treatment option to patients looking to combat hair loss. PRP therapy is a non-surgical alternative to hair transplant procedures and is an ideal option for patients interested in a minimally-invasive hair restoration treatment.
Men and women suffering from hair loss can benefit from PRP therapy for hair restoration. Platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood and contains a concentrated level of platelets, approximately five to ten times the amount found in normal blood circulating throughout the body. Platelets are an important part of the body’s natural healing response and help to repair and regenerate damaged tissues, stimulate blood flow, and trigger the formation of new blood cells. When used for hair restoration, PRP therapy helps repair damaged hair follicles and increases the supply of nutrients and blood to the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma therapy for hair restoration works best on patients with thinning hair, rather than patients who have experienced full hair loss.
