The first step to regrowing hair always starts with comprehensive lab work to find the underlying causes of your hair loss.
Then, we address those causes. If your lifestyle is causing your hair loss, we provide guidelines and habits you can enact to spur hair growth. Some patients may need to stop over-exercising or change their diet to provide adequate nutrients.
2. Using Platelet Rich Plasma & Stem Cell Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an excellent treatment for hair loss. PRP is concentrated blood plasma, containing 3-5x the number of platelets in regular blood as well as growth factors that aid in wound healing and potential hair growth. The theory is that increasing platelet count accelerates the body's healing to the targeted area.
Often, we will use a combination of treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma combined with Stem Cell Therapy directly applied to the scalp. Adult stem cells are highly regenerative and have the ability to restore and repair injured tissue and joints. Combined with PRP, this treatment is especially effective in stimulating hair follicles and regrowth.
3. Using Hormone Replacement Therapy
When addressing hair loss treatment it is important to understand hormone imbalances. Hormone imbalances are not widely discussed today but are relatively common. They can be caused by excess caffeine, high levels of stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, and exposure to some plastics or pesticides. Naturally, our hormones also change as we age, resulting in hair loss. We predominately treat hair loss for both men and women with Hormone Replacement Therapy.
If you have hair loss and hormone imbalance is the underlying cause, it's wise to seek treatment in case of severe illness - they can cause serious health problems, including hypothyroidism in women, chronic fatigue syndrome, and increased risk of cancer.
