Hair loss can affect both men and women at virtually any age. Yet, despite its ubiquity, it is often a cause for severe self-confidence loss and social embarrassment. There is a growing market for hair restoration treatments, some of which are dangerous or require significant surgery. At Glow Aesthetic Center, we provide non-surgical solutions for hair restoration for both men and women. Our offerings include platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and the use of stem cells to stimulate the growth of new hair.
Lots of factors can cause you to start losing your hair, according to the Mayo Clinic. You could suffer hair loss due to:
- A family history of baldness
- Radiation therapy for cancer or other illnesses
- Medications that deplete hair follicles
- Hormonal changes due to aging or hormone therapy
- Stress (due to the overproduction of cortisol)
- Harmful hairstyles that pull out or stress your hair
Regardless of the reason behind your hair loss, both PRP injections and stem cell treatments can help you regain your confidence as well as your follicles. If you are ready to look and feel your best and put embarrassing hair loss behind you, contact the offices of Glow Aesthetic Center today. You can reach us by calling (818) 905-8815 or by scheduling an appointment online through our Book an Appointment page.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Hair Loss
PRP injections have become popular among the athletic community as a way to boost the body’s natural healing processes for quicker recovery times after injuries. The process involves the following steps:
- The client’s blood is drawn.
- Platelet-rich plasma is extracted from the blood via a centrifuge.
- This plasma is then re-injected back into the client’s body at the site of injury.
Plasma is a naturally occurring element of your blood, made of water and protein, that carries the red and white blood cells through your bloodstream. By separating it from the rest of the blood components and filling it with platelets, the PRP process provides your body with an abundance of “healing factor” at the affected spot.
How PRP Is Used for Hair Restoration
At Glow Aesthetic Center, we use PRP for hair restoration by injecting it directly into the scalp. The plasma then provides healing power to your hair follicles and stimulates the growth of new cells. This, in turn, allows you to have fuller, more luscious hair without undergoing painful hair implants or extensive surgery.
Understanding Stem Cells
There has been a lot of talk in the recent past regarding stem cells. What separates these cells apart from other cells is their ability to grow into virtually any type of tissue or organ. While controversy has surrounded the use of embryonic stem cells, the use of adult stem cells is common.
At Glow Aesthetic Center, we boost hair restoration by targeting stem cells in the scalp. Treatments encourage the cells to grow into the follicles you need. Additionally, stem cells offer a variety of healing properties due to their ability to grow into desired cell types.
Why You Should Choose Non-Surgical Options
There are a host of other options available to help restore your hair. However, not all of them are as safe, effective, and non-invasive as PRP or stem cell injections. Why go under the knife when there are safer alternatives available? Plus, there is no downtime associated with PRP or stem cell injections. Just like getting a flu shot, the procedure leaves you able to drive yourself home and continue about your life as usual.
We also do not need to administer sedatives, so you won’t be groggy after your treatment. The entire process typically lasts about one hour, which is significantly shorter than an extensive surgical solution.
Results that Last
An additional bonus to PRP injections and stem cell therapy is that essentially you are stimulating your body’s own processes to restore your hair. That means your results can last for a long time. Whereas extensions can wear out over time and implants can be rejected, PRP and stem cells are already a part of you!
