The Facts About PRP For Treating Alopecia in Michigan Michigan
As we age, the hair on our head becomes thinner and starts falling out. People use various ways to hide this fact with haircuts, shaving, wearing a hat, or even wigs. But this isn’t a long-term solution to the problem.
Hair loss can be contributed to genetic makeup, stress, poor diet, and illness. Losing your hair can also just be a sign of aging. It’s common for people to lose between 25 to 100 hairs each day and that’s considered normal. They usually grow back, but as we age, the body doesn’t regenerate the hair as quickly. Eventually, you will start losing more hair than you can regenerate. In medical terms, this is called alopecia (or hair thinning and hair loss).
The latest medical advance called Platelet Rich Plasma (aka PRP) can be used to treat hair loss. PRP has been widely accepted as a safe and effective solution to treat medical and cosmetic problems, and has been praised in the cosmetic industry since it became available.
In what is known as the “blood facelift” or “vampire facelift,” in which a patient donates their own blood to create the platelet-rich plasma, this process involves then injecting the plasma into specific areas on the face to start the regenerative and rejuvenating process that results in a more youthful appearance. The same technique is now used to treat hair loss. The blood plasma is full of platelets, collagen, and growth factors that are essential for the growth of new tissue and hair. Once the doctor collects your blood and places it in a centrifuge to separate platelets, it’s then ready to be strategically injected into your scalp where hair regrowth is desired. The result appears within three to six months as thicker and healthier hair.
