What causes Hair Loss?
Some of the causes of hair loss include:
Different types of alopecia
Vitamin deficiencies, thyroid disease, anemia, and other medical conditions
Stress, chronic illness, and severe infection
Ringworm of the scalp
Trichotillomania, a medical condition in which people repeatedly pull out their own hair
Some hair loss can be caused or exacerbated by the excess use of certain hair treatments, such as frequent bleaching or flat ironing.
What is hair restoration?
Hair restoration refers to various methods to improve and restore your hair. New Body Medical offers innovative solutions to treat hair loss, including:
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
If hormonal imbalance is causing or contributing to your hair loss, the team may suggest bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to balance your hormones.
New Body Medical might recommend certain lifestyle changes, such as stress management, exercise, and improving your nutrition if nutrient deficiencies or poor diet is worsening or causing your hair loss.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy
Plasma is a liquid present in your blood. Your blood consists of small solid components: white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Platelets contain growth factors that are especially beneficial for healing injuries.
To receive platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, you must be at least 18 years old and in good overall health. PRP is made from your own blood and contains more platelets than the typical amount found in your blood. The team gets the PRP through a centrifugation process that concentrates the platelets until they’re 5-10 times richer than normal.
The medical team cleans your scalp and injects a local anesthetic to numb the area. They draw your blood and uses a special centrifuge machine to separate and concentrate the platelets. Following the centrifugation process, the team merges the highly concentrated platelets with your remaining blood and BioCell® — a mixture that usually contains hyaluronic acid and collagen.
What are the benefits of platelet-rich plasma therapy for hair restoration?
The PRP prompts cell regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin and healthy cells. Natural growth factors derived from your blood can enhance hair growth. Treated hair follicles typically rejuvenate in three months.
There’s no downtime and you can even receive the treatment on your lunch break. You might experience some mild swelling and discomfort on your scalp that subsides within a few days.
