It’s something we all know can happen in the back of our mind, but in our early adult years, we barely ever think about it: hair loss. All of our lives we associate hair loss with age.
Perhaps your grandfather was balding, or the elderly librarian at your school had thinning hair. The fact of the matter is that hair loss can be caused by any number of things that may be completely out of our control, with advanced age being just one of them. Here at Revita Life MD, we specialize in anti-aging and cosmetic medical procedures that can help you to fight back against these factors. Keep reading to learn more about hair loss as well as how one of our full menu of hair restoration treatments can provide a way to slow or even completely reverse your thinning hair!
Hair Loss Is A Devastating Process With Many Causes
When men and women come into our Louisville clinic for a hair restoration consultation, one of the first things they want to know is, “Why?” They just can’t understand why they could get 30, 40, or even 50 years into their life with a full head of hair, only to wake up one day and realize there are far more stray hairs on your pillowcase than you would like.
The truth is that there are many factors, some reversible, some not, that can cause the hair we love to fall out unexpectedly. The important thing to remember is that hair restoration techniques are more advanced than ever, and Revita Life MD can help.
Potential causes of hair loss include:
- Physical Stress
- Too Much Vitamin A
- Lack Of Protein
- Hormonal Imbalances
- Emotional Stress
- Iron Deficiency
- Vitamin B Deficiency
- Autoimmune Disease
- Dramatic Weight Loss
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
- Certain Medication
- Certain Hair Styles
- Anabolic Steroids
The root cause of your hair loss ultimately determines which hair restoration treatments have the ability to be successful. Many of our patients have achieved wonderful results with PRP hair restoration. Keep reading to get answers to some of the most commonly-asked questions about this revolutionary treatment!
What Is PRP?
PRP stands for “platelet rich plasma” which is a substance derived from your own body. Blood is drawn and processed to have a higher concentration of blood plasma, growth factors, and bioactive proteins that may encourage hair growth.
How Does PRP Work?
Research has shown that the introduction of PRP into the scalp area can be used to stimulate hair follicles, thus reversing the miniaturization (thinning) process and encouraging new, natural hair restoration.
How Long Does PRP Take?
Unlike other hair restoration techniques, which may require cumulative hours of your time, or (like surgery) leave you unable to participate in your normal life for weeks, PRP is an outpatient treatment that can be completed in an hour-long appointment.
What Are The Advantages Of PRP?
In addition to being one of the fastest, least-invasive forms of hair restoration, PRP also offers a valuable alternative to those who have tried other forms of hair loss treatment without success. It has also been shown to be effective in the crown area, which is generally not a good candidate for hair transplant procedures.
