Alopecia, or hair loss, is usually associated with men, but many women suffer from it too. And for women, it can have a sever impact on their confidence. But DiSteafano Medical Spa offers a new solution to female hair loss, and we’re among the first in our area to provide it to our patients.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Loss Therapy is the most exciting new advancement in the treatment of women’s hair loss. PRP has been found to improve hair health and regrow hair. PRP can be effective in the treatment of Androgenic Alopecia.
Here’s how it works: PRP takes advantage of your body’s natural ability to heal wounds and regrow cells. Natural growth factors are activated by platelets in your blood. PRP isolates the platelet rich portion of your blood. This concentration of platelets, and therefore concentration of growth factors, is up to ten times greater than normal. PRP stimulates new hair growth by re-activating dormant follicles and heals the follicle at a cellular level, which results in healthier thicker hair.
PRP has been around for over 20 years. It is used for its wound healing capabilities in various medical specialties including cardiovascular surgery, orthopedics, sports medicine, dermatology and other medical specialties. In 2004, PRP was first utilized to treat hair loss, and recently, new studies have demonstrated its potential for treatment of alpoecia.
