Thinning hair or total hair loss in specific regions of the scalp can really affect your self-esteem and confidence, and many individuals see this problem as a sign that old age has finally hit. Actually, pattern baldness or total hair loss can occur during the middle adult years, and the individual can still expect years and years of good health. Therefore, the question is how to treat hair loss, or more specifically, how to kickstart a reversal process whereby healthy hair growth can be restored. You may wonder if you’re a candidate for hair restoration, which does more to restore your hair than topical creams and gels. If you’ve already tried topical ointments and prescription lotions, and you haven’t enjoyed the results you desire, consider hair restoration at our office.
Candidates for Hair Restoration
Hair restoration treatment has advanced significantly over the past two decades. Remember the old days when an individual had the hair plug look after having transplant surgery performed? Those days are long gone. Today’s advanced treatments give the individual a much more natural appearance, and the results of modern treatment are generally above and beyond the expectations of the client.
To be considered for this treatment, the individual should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results. Oftentimes, a combination of treatments is best in order to achieve the desired results.
Hair Restoration Options
Medications are a great place to start. The most popular medications used in hair restoration include DHT inhibitors, anti-androgens, and growth stimulants. The right one(s) for you will depend on a number of factors.
One way to fix the problem of hair loss is via platelet-rich plasma therapy. Candidates for this procedure will be in good overall health and will not have total hair loss in any region of the scalp.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a gel containing a bit of the client’s own blood. The blood has been spun rapidly in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from the red cells. Once the platelet concentration is high enough, the thin gel can be used in the treatment area.
The growth factors in the platelets help to reactivate the follicles. Many individuals enjoy thicker, fuller hair strands after a series of PRP hair restoration treatments.
