The average adult loses approximately 50 to 100 scalp hairs each day. But, at different times, and for different reasons, hair loss can be more severe leading to noticeable hair thinning or total baldness. Hair loss affects both the young and the old; both male and female.
Hair falls out for many different reasons. Diagnosing the reason for your hair loss is one of the most important parts of successful treatment. The causes of hair loss are varied, but some common reasons are: 1) medications; 2) nutritional status; 3) hairdressing habits/products; 4) disease; 5) advancing age; 6) thyroid issues; 7) iron deficiency; 8) hormone imbalance; 9) genetics; and 10) stress.
Some types of hair loss can be prevented by reducing stress, eating for better health, making adjustments to hairdressing methods, and changing medications that don’t have this side effect. Vitality Medical Center works with our patients to get to the underlying cause of hair loss. Advances in health science and wellness allow us to offer our patients two revolutionary approaches for restoring hair density and appearance. They are:
Plasma-Rich Platelets (PRP) for Hair Loss or Thinning. Non-surgical treatment to increase hair count, hair density and the growth phase of the hair cycle. PRP consists of growth factors and proteins that accelerate tissue repair. Growth factors can stimulate hair follicles to foster new hair growth.
Micro-needling. Micro-needling involves making small tiny channels to stimulate a repair response. Also, these tiny channels create a passage for any leftover PRP. Then, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the numbed scalp in various locations near the hair follicles in a grid-like pattern. The delicate application of PRP injections to locations across the scalp is a precise process.
Call Vitality Medical Center to schedule a consultation about hair loss, especially if you are having other unexplained symptoms. We can work with you to uncover a diagnosis and come up with a treatment plan to help restore your hair’s vitality.
