Does PRP Work For Female Hair Loss?

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma

Hair loss is a condition most often associated with men due to increased testosterone levels and genetic predisposition. However, women do also experience hair loss and thinning with age. It is often more subtle because it happens primarily on the top of the head along the part. Of course, medical conditions, genetics, and other factors all can cause worsened hair loss in women. So, does PRP work for female hair loss?

If hair loss in a woman is not yet extensive, platelet rich plasma can absolutely help slow the progression and restore hair. It works similarly to a PRP hair restoration treatment for men. Sometimes—depending on the reasons for the hair loss—other treatments may be recommended. Whether it be outside of the cosmetic realm or not, combining treatments does usually yield better results.

Hair loss in women can be especially stressful since women are often expected to have more hair and it becomes a larger part of a feminine identity. PRP is one option that allows women to slow hair loss and keep their natural hair longer.

Why Is Hair Loss More Common Among Men?

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma

Men and women both suffer hair loss for a variety of reasons. However, when it comes to age-related and genetic hair loss, men tend to have it much worse. Women can certainly experience genetic hair loss, but it is less common. So, why is hair loss more common among men?

The reason that genetic hair loss affects men more than women comes down to a testosterone-related hormone known as dihydrotestosterone. Men and women have this hormone, but it is in much higher levels in men. Having higher levels of DHT, or other genetic factors can cause the hormone to attack the hair follicles. This makes them smaller and damages them, which causes the hair to fall out and no hair to grow back in its place.

The hair follicles most susceptible to DNT are those along the front and top of the head. This is why a receding hairline and loss of hair on the top of the head are the hallmarks of male pattern baldness. And, thus, this is why hair from the side and back of the head–which are resistant or less susceptible to DHT–are used as donor hairs during a hair transplant.

PRP can also help reverse the damage and miniaturization of hair follicles to slow the process of genetic hair loss. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112. You can also reach out online via chat or online form.

Can PRP Help A Receding Hairline?

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma

A receding hairline is one of the most relevant cosmetic concerns for men and some women. It can start sometimes as early as high school or college in those with a genetic predisposition. Most men will experience a receding hairline to an extent, but the severity and visibility of it will depend largely on their genetics and various other factors. Since there is little to do to stop a receding hairline, our patients often ask, “Can PRP help a receding hairline?”

The answer is yes, but the way it will help will be different for every individual. Though, most PRP experts agree that platelet rich plasma injected into the areas of loss can maintain the current position of your hairline and slow down the overall loss. Depending on how long ago you lost hair further up in your hairline, it may even result in some restoration. 

The hairline is a tricky area to restore non-surgically. While possible, patients will usually see the best results if they start treatment as quickly as they can once they notice their hairline receding. This will likely yield the best results.

Hair Restoration Seattle: Does ACell PRP Work?

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Injections

Hair loss is a frustrating condition that takes a toll on self esteem, confidence, and mental health. With many options, it can be difficult to determine the one that will best address your unique hair loss. For patients experiencing the early signs of genetic hair loss, also known as male or female pattern baldness, ACell and PRP hair restoration may promote increased hair growth. Does ACell PRP work?

First off, PRP stimulates healing and hair growth in areas consistent with genetic hair loss. This promotes the body to heal the damaged hair follicles. This can slow down the hair loss process and help patients to keep their hair longer. It also is effective for treating thinning hair. 

ACell also stimulates collagen production and hair growth. However, unlike PRP which triggers the healing process, ACell takes it a step further and acts as a foundation for new hair growth. While ACell does not permanently stay in the body, it helps repair skin and increases the overall health of the scalp. 

When choosing to combine PRP and ACell together, this creates a powerful hair growth treatment. For patients seeing the first signs of early hair loss, PRP with ACell hair restoration may offer an option to keep hair longer.

5 Tips To Prevent Hair Loss

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma

Hair loss happens naturally from age and in our daily lives. Most of the time, new hair regularly replaces shed hair. However, some people experience more hair loss or their genetics dictate larger amounts of hair loss. Regardless of the cause or amount of hair you lose, there are some ways you can minimize and prevent hair loss. 

If your hair loss is unpreventable, or has reached the stage where prevention tactics can only manage hair loss, PRP In Seattle offers many PRP hair restoration methods to help grow new hair.

#1: Eat A Nutritious Diet & Stay Hydrated

Not getting enough nutrients can cause or worsen hair loss. While vitamins and supplements can help, the best way to get all the nutrients your body needs is to eat nutrient rich foods. Additionally, keeping hydrated is known to help your skin and is important to healthy bodily function.

#2: Avoid Over Brushing

Brushing your hair too much can cause hair breakage and extra loss. While it is obviously necessary to brush your hair, do so gently and with a wide toothed comb to minimize trauma to the hair.

#3: Stop Smoking

Smoking causes constriction of the blood vessels which can shrink hair follicles and lead to hair loss. Avoiding or quitting cigarettes can prevent current and future hair loss.

#4: Avoid Constrictive Hairstyles

For people with long hair, tight ponytails or hairstyles can pull on the hair or scalp which can lead to hair loss. Especially if worn consistently, some may begin to see thinning hair near the sites of the most constriction.

Leading Causes Of Hair Loss In Women

By | Hair Restoration

The battle against hair loss heavily focuses on men. In fact, many believe that men are simply more likely to lose their hair. However, men and women have a similar likelihood of losing their hair. So, why are men the focus of the hair loss conversation? A large factor is that men’s hair loss is usually more noticeable because they have less of it and men with male pattern baldness begin losing hair at the hairline. The causes of hair loss in women can be similar or completely different from men.

Additionally, like male pattern baldness, women can be genetically predisposed to female pattern baldness. This is among the most common causes of hair loss in women. Women with female pattern baldness tend to lose hair in a “Christmas tree” pattern along the scalp, often following the part in their hair. Therefore, this can make the thinning less obvious at first. 

Just like in men, other factors can influence when and how much hair loss occurs. Genetics, stress, medical conditions, hormonal imbalances, diet, medications, and mental illness can all impact the rate of hair loss. At PRP In Seattle, we can evaluate your unique pattern and cause of hair loss to determine the best hair restoration option. PRP hair restoration is customizable and can minimize thinning hair.

Causes Of Hair Loss & What PRP Hair Restoration Can Treat

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma

Hair loss is often associated with aging or illness. While these are two reasons hair falls out, there are many other causes of hair loss. Luckily, with the many PRP hair restoration options, many causes of hair loss can be treated with non-surgical methods. 

As mentioned above, age is frequently associated with hair loss, especially in men, known as male pattern baldness. Age is the leading cause of lost and thinning hair.. In these cases, a person will experience slowly thinning hair, sometimes beginning in their early 20s. Most of the time, PRP hair restoration is a great way to discourage thinning hair and keep hair longer. You must start treatments before completely bald because the treatment becomes ineffective once hair follicles become fully inactive aka baldness.

Genetics also play a role in hair loss. For those predisposed to lose their hair, they may start younger than others. If caught early, PRP hair restoration can reduce the amount of hair loss seen. 

Other causes of hair loss include medical conditions and hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, certain medications and treatments, stress, and even some hairstyles. Normally, once these conditions or situations are addressed, the hair will begin to come back (although likely different from before). PRP hair restoration may supplement this process or treat bald or thinning spots.

PRP With ACell: How They Work Together

By | Hair Restoration

During some hair restoration techniques, platelet rich plasma is combined with ACell. PRP comes from the patient’s blood on the day of treatment. ACell is a type of stem cell derived from pig bladders. When injected into the scalp, these two regenerative tools can provide visible results and hair growth. 

Platelet rich plasma acts as fertilizer for your hair follicles. When injected, it tells your body that there has been an injury. Your body then sends defenses such as white blood cells and proteins to heal the microscopic injury. Additionally, PRP itself contains growth factors and hormones that support hair growth. This can help heal damaged hair follicles and promote the growth of new hair in the treatment area.

ACell provides the topsoil for your new hair. When your scalp has damaged (but not inactive) hair follicles, skin issues, or your hair loss is more extensive, ACell can bond with your existing skin to provide a new, nutrient-rich environment that can better support hair.

When you choose to combine PRP and ACell during your hair restoration treatment, you receive the most advanced injectable hair restoration procedure available. To schedule your consultation at PRP In Seattle, call us at (206) 279-2112 or contact us online.
