Hair Restoration

Over 35 million men and 21 million women suffer from hair loss and many people are not aware of treatment options for hair restoration. Hair loss is mostly due to heredity, but can occur from some drugs and treatments, harsh hair-care products, hairstyles that pull on the hair or from an overreactive immune system. Excessive hair shedding is also common within women who have given birth or stopped taking birth control pills. Stress, unwarranted weight loss or illnesses can also cause excessive hair shedding. Whether excessive hair shedding or hair loss, there are medicines or supplements that can help.

Hair Restoration

  Effective treatments for most hair loss include:

  • Over the counter or Prescription medicine
  • Hair transplant surgery
  • Injections of Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) Hair restoration

PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn typically from your arm, and then processed to separate out the platelet-rich plasma and injected back into your scalp. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate hair growth.

PRP therapy treatments typically take 4-6 months. The injection schedule will depend on the amount of hair loss as well as other factors like genetics, age, and hormones.

Much research shows that PRP is safe and effective for many people, however, there are categories that PRP therapy should not be administered. At PHDermatology, we can evaluate and educate you on the possibilities available. Our team of board-certified professionals will educate you on medication, scalp treatments, surgical or non-surgical procedures including PRP injections to set you on the path to reversing hair loss and stimulating new hair growth.
