PRP Hair Restoration: How To Restore Hair?

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma

Hair restoration comes in many forms. From surgical hair transplant to non-surgical PRP injections to prescription medications, there are many Seattle hair restoration methods available. With so many options, patients may become overwhelmed with the options and not know which ones are best for them. This can leave them simply asking, “How to restore hair?”

The right way to restore your hair will depend on the current state of your hair. If you have just started seeing hair loss and thinning, non-invasive treatments like prescription medications and PRP injections may provide the results you are looking for. If your hair loss is in more advanced stages, hair transplant surgery may be required. Occasionally, patients will find the best results from combining methods. For example, it is not uncommon for patients to take prescription medication after hair transplant surgery, or during PRP hair restoration. 

PRP hair restoration is a great option for men and women beginning to experience genetic hair loss. It can also supplement the results of hair transplant surgery and other hair restoration methods. Every hair restoration patients require a customized plan catered to their individual needs.

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.

Hair Grafts vs. PRP Hair Restoration

By | Hair Restoration

When it comes to Seattle hair restoration, there are surgical and non-surgical methods that can achieve a good result. The most common hair restoration surgery includes hair grafts, which can have various techniques. In general, this surgery involves taking hair from one part of the head or body and transplanting it to the thinning areas. Non-surgical methods include various types of injectable PRP therapies

At PRP In Seattle, we specialize in these non-surgical hair restoration methods. Although, our surgeons, Dr. Sajan and Dr. Jonov, do perform surgical hair restoration. Due to the varying causes of hair loss, good candidates for the two methods do not necessarily overlap.

Hair grafting is most commonly performed for patients with more advanced hair loss. At a certain point, PRP hair restoration is not effective and surgical methods can better treat more advanced stages of hair loss. It is a more invasive procedure and does not necessarily stimulate the growth of new hair. It focuses on maintaining your current and transplanted hair.

PRP hair restoration uses growth factors, platelet rich plasma, and sometimes other ingredients to stimulate new hair growth. This is great for men and women experiencing thinning hair and the beginnings of larger hair loss.
