Nearly 30 million women and 50 million men in the United States suffer from thin or shedding hair. The primary cause of this loss of hair is genetic. Stress also contributes to thinning and shedding of hair. Some medical conditions, including thyroid disease, autoimmune disorders, and hormone imbalance cause people to lose their hair. Research has shown that the healing and regenerative effects of PRP may stop the thinning and shedding of hair in men and women an promote the growth of natural hair with minimal to no risk.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a concentrate of plasma that contains growth factors. Those growth factors stimulate the repair and regeneration of damaged tissue. PRP is used for many types of regenerative therapy, including orthopedic treatment and erectile dysfunction. At RMB, we also use PRP as a natural and long-term therapy for people with thin hair and hair loss.
How PRP works for Hair Loss
PRP contains numerous growth factors that are effective at stopping the shedding of hair and initiating the growth of new hair on the scalp and face. By stimulating the rapid growth of cells and attracting omnipotent stem cells to the area, PRP helps the body grow new epidermal and dermal cells. This encourages the growth of more hair follicles. PRP may reverse the effects of thin hair in people who have alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, metabolic causes of hair loss, male or female pattern baldness or hypotrichosis. The therapy is effective for people with thin or lost hair on the scalp, eyebrows, and eyelashes. This treatment may also help men who suffer from a beard or mustache that is too thin.
The Benefits of PRP
PRP therapy is derived from your own cells. There is no risk of an allergy or reaction to this treatment. PRP has no side effects, and it is non-invasive. The treatment sessions are quick. You can combine PRP therapy with other types of hair rebuilding treatments, such as hair transplantation or our iHelmet. When your hair is thin or you have male or female pattern baldness, you feel self-conscious and can become very insecure about your appearance.
With PRP therapy, the new natural hair growth builds your self-confidence and self-esteem. Men and women of any age can have PRP therapy and being that it is from your own blood you can have as many treatments as you’d like. The PRP treatment works at any stage of thinning or balding hair. The growth process can even be amplified by combining the use of the iHelmet.
