Hair loss affects millions of people in the United States. Male-pattern baldness is the most common type in both men and women. More than 50 percent of all men over 50 will be affected by male pattern baldness to some extent. It can occur at any age which is why it is so important to be proactive about your hair health. For those with early stage hair loss and thinning due to genetics, hormone shifts, or environmental factors, there are now powerful non-surgical ways to get back your lovely locks. One of the most effective methods of non-surgical treatments for hair loss is hair restoration with Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF).
PRF Hair Restoration is a natural way to treat hair loss in men and women as we are utilizing your own blood, which includes growth factors and interleukins to stimulate hair growth. Most patients will realize a 30-40% improvement in quantity and quality of their hair shafts during our treatment regimen. There is no down time from the procedure and each treatment takes an hour or less. Our treatment protocol consists of 5 treatments over a 12-month course and includes medical-grade hair supplements customized for women and men. We also have patients switch to appropriate shampoo and conditioner for hair loss. The treatment works best for non-smokers, those with normal platelet counts, and those not on blood thinners. There are very few side effects of the treatment but could include a bruise at the site where blood is drawn or bruise on the scalp. There is also a minimal risk of infection. The key to treating hair loss is to start early. If you have noticed areas of thinning hair or a receding hairline, it is probably time to start treating it. Once there are areas void of any hair, your best option is hair transplantation surgery.
