What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss is a common issue many people face, starting as early as 20 years old and intensifying with age. The factors that contribute to loss of hair are wide and varied, but the main causes are health, genetics, side effects from prescription drugs, and more. Hair loss and thinning are prevalent in both men and women but are treatable conditions through hair restoration techniques.
Methods Of Hair Restoration
The best treatments available to combat hair loss are prescription medication, PRP treatments, and hair transplantation surgery. Though many find success using one treatment, greater results may be achieved using a combination of techniques. Call Enhanced Wellness Living in Ridgeland, Mississippi today to find out which of our treatments may be right for you.
The three main hair growth medications prescribed are DHT inhibitors, anti-androgens, and growth stimulants. DHT inhibitors reduce DHT levels present in the scalp to reduce the loss of hair. Anti-androgens block DHT from entering the follicle while avoiding side effects from lowering DHT levels. Growth stimulants maintain hair while it is in the growth phase and can be used with other medications.
PRP Hair Restoration
We perform PRP, a non-surgical means of hair restoration for patients with pattern hair loss. The treatment allows for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) within the body to be transferred to the areas that may have inadequate hair growth. Our specialists collect PRP from a small sample of the patient’s blood at the time of the appointment. The blood sample spins in a centrifuge for several minutes to create the PRP solution where it is reintroduced into specific areas on the scalp to promote natural, healthy hair growth.
Are Hair Restoration Treatments Safe?
Yes! Medications have been recognized as a safe and effective means of restoring hair. Additionally, PRP is perhaps one of the safest hair restoration alternatives. Since the solution is created using a sample of the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of severe allergic reactions, side effects, or disease.
