If your hair is thinning or you are developing a receding hairline, you might be suffering from alopecia. This medical condition is challenging to address on your own. It’s also difficult to hide your thinning hair with hats and wigs. At Dr. Gregory E Rauscher, M.D. in Hackensack, NJ, we can use an innovative PRP treatment to fix your thinning hair.
Can PRP Regrow Hair?
If you are in the New looking for a quick way to regrow your hair, you should consider getting a platelet-rich plasma treatment. Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is a special substance that is derived from your own blood. Applying this healing substance to your scalp will improve the blood flow in this area of your body. It will also encourage your follicles to grow more hair.
A PRP treatment can improve the negative symptoms of your alopecia. As your body reacts to the PRP solution that we applied to your scalp, the condition of your hair will improve. Over time, your hair will become thicker and your bald patches will be less visible.
How Do I Know if I Am Starting To Lose My Hair?
Losing strands of hair when you use a comb or take a shower isn’t necessarily a sign of hair loss. Since your body loses some hair every day, you shouldn’t panic if you see a couple of strands in your hairbrush or comb.
Signs of Hair Loss
Although it’s normal to shed some hairs every day, there are a number of signs that may indicate that you are beginning to develop a hair loss issue. In particular, clumps of hair may come out when you brush or shower. In addition, your hairline may begin to recede and the hairs on your scalp may become thinner.
Addressing Your Problem
If your thinning hair is bothering you, you shouldn’t wait for this issue to improve on its own. Using a PRP treatment to address your hair loss at an early stage can be a good way to prevent this problem from becoming worse. This treatment will also reduce your chances of developing large bald patches on your head.
What Should I Expect During My PRP Treatment?
When you arrive at our office in Hackensack, New Jersey, we will take a small sample of your blood. Drawing your blood is a simple, straightforward process that will only take us a couple of minutes to complete. After we have collected your blood, we will spin this sample in a centrifuge. As this liquid spins, the plasma will separate from the other components in your blood.
We will inject the PRP substance into your scalp. After we have finished applying this solution to your scalp, you’ll be able to leave our office and resume your typical activities in New Jersey. During the next several weeks, the healing properties of the PRP solution will help your body produce more hair.
How Many Hair Loss Treatments Will I Need?
The number of hair loss treatments that you receive will depend on your body’s reaction to the PRP solution and the condition of your hair. In general, you are likely to receive up to six PRP sessions.
To maintain your thick, attractive hair, you may need to get follow-up treatments. We can discuss the details of your treatment schedule when you have your first appointment at our office in New Jersey.
When Will My Hair Loss Improve?
You shouldn’t expect to see instant improvements in your alopecia. Instead, the positive changes in your hair will be gradual. As you continue to get PRP treatments, your hair should become thicker and healthier. This process is likely to take a couple of months to complete. During this time, you should try to eat a healthy diet and avoid smoking. Taking good care of your body can help improve the blood flow to your scalp.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Hair Loss Treatment?
If you are dealing with androgenic alopecia, you are likely to benefit from receiving this hair loss treatment. This medical condition can affect men and women. If you are a man who is suffering from this problem, you are likely to lose hair above your temples. If you do not address this problem, you might become completely bald over time.
If you are a woman who is experiencing androgenic alopecia, your hair is likely to become thinner. Although your hairline will not recede and you probably will not become completely bald, you could lose a significant amount of hair. Receiving a PRP treatment can be an excellent way to reverse your hair loss and improve your appearance.
Can I Use At-Home Remedies To Improve My Hair?
Many supplements, serums, and other at-home remedies will not create meaningful improvements in your hair. That said, you can improve your hair by avoiding certain beauty techniques. For instance, frequently straightening, curling, or dying your hair could damage your strands and cause your hair to thin. Avoiding these techniques may strengthen your hair and enhance the results of your PRP treatment.
