Hair loss can be a frustrating and distressing experience for many people, with a variety of causes. Some of the most common causes of hair loss include genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions, and certain medications.
Genetics play a major role in hair loss, with the most common form being androgenetic alopecia, also known as male or female pattern baldness. A combination of genetics and hormones causes this type of hair loss and typically results in a receding hairline and thinning on the top of the head.
Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during pregnancy, menopause, or using certain birth control pills, can also cause hair loss.
Medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders, anemia, and autoimmune diseases, can also lead to hair loss. Certain medications, including chemotherapy drugs, can also cause hair loss as a side effect.
Treating Hair Loss With PRP Microneedling
While there are a variety of treatments available for hair loss, at Sage Nutrition, we offer microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) microneedling. PRP is a treatment that uses your own blood plasma, which is rich in growth factors, to promote healing and tissue regeneration. Microneedling is a procedure that uses fine needles to create small punctures in the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process.
When PRP is combined with microneedling, the growth factors in the plasma can penetrate the skin and promote hair growth. The procedure is relatively simple and involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, which is then processed to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma is then applied to the scalp, and microneedling is used to create small punctures in the skin.
PRP microneedling is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that has been shown to be effective in promoting hair growth. It is also relatively painless and has minimal side effects.
No matter the cause of your hair loss, microneedling with PRP is an innovative and effective solution to help you regain confidence in yourself. To learn more, contact our office to schedule a free consultation.
