There are a number of factors to keep in mind when determining the cause of hair loss (particularly in women). Aside from heredity, the major causes of female hair loss include: hormone imbalance, anemia, drastic changes in diet/poor nutrition, certain medications, hair dyes/extensions/heat/certain styles that put tension on the follicles/etc, and stress.
In many cases, addressing the above issues will naturally restore a woman’s hair. However, when the cause is either not addressed, addressed but not rendering desired results, or is compounded by genetic factors – then further intervention is appropriate.
One of the easiest and least invasive ways to achieve hair restoration is through PRP induction therapy. At The Hormone Zone, we combine micro needling technology with PRP injections to expedite follicle growth and promote thicker, stronger, healthier hair.
The process begins with a quick and easy blood draw performed in office. State of the art double spin technology is then used to separate platelet rich plasma from whole blood and platelet poor plasma. Up to 9.5 billion platelets are rendered and prepped for injection. Areas of hair loss are then micro needled for PRP to better be absorbed into the scalp via tiny micro-traumas. PRP is also then meticulously injected into the scalp to trigger natural hair growth.
The procedure can be followed with additional products to further expedite the hair growth process including:
- GHK-Cu spray: promotes collagen production and strengthens already existing hair by stimulating growth in areas that are lacking thickness; often used to improve the outcome of hair transplantation surgeries and healing
- Thymosin B4: increases hair growth by activation of hair follicle stem cells
- Valproic acid: activates the Wnt/Beta-catenin pathway, which is associated with the hair growth cycle and anagen induction
- Nutrafol supplementation: botanically derived vitamins that aid in naturally expediting hair growth, hair quality, and overall health
For optimal results, the procedure should be done once every 3 weeks for 12 weeks. Growth is typically seen within 6 weeks.
