According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, over 80 million men and women are affected by hereditary hair loss. Some signs of hair loss are gradual thinning, receding hair line and patchy bald spots. While hereditary hair loss is the most common, there are other causes as well:
- Hormonal Changes
- Medical Conditions
- Medical Treatments
Can You Prevent Hair Loss?
There are lots of chemical products claiming to help reduce hair loss, and many don’t actually help. Instead, options like minoxidil (for women) can cause health problems, and finasteride (for men) can cause sexual side effects long after you discontinue treatment. Huffington Post has a great article on common myths related to hair loss.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Blood is made up of plasma, red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets contain hundreds of proteins, also known as growth factors, that are essential in healing injuries. Platelet-rich plasma is a process where blood is drawn from a patient, platelets are separated and increased in concentration through centrifugation, and combined with the remaining blood for treatment.
The resulted plasma has 5-10 times more platelets than usual. This isn’t some new fad; this process has been in development for years, and even professional athletes, like Tiger Woods, have accredited their quick recovery to it. Watch a video on the process here.
