Hair Loss Treatment Q & A

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can occur from any number of causes, ranging from stress to genetics. When struggling with hair loss, it’s important to understand the root cause so you get the most effective treatment.

Your hair loss may be caused by:

  • Heritability, ie Genetics
  • Underlying medical causes such as hormonal irregularities
  • Autoimmune causes such as Alopecia Areata, and Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia.
  • A side effect of medication
  • Hairstyle
  • Hair products
  • Stress
  • Poor nutrition
  • Hormonal changes

Of course, hereditary hair loss is the most common cause. This type of hair loss includes male- and female-pattern baldness.

Am I a candidate for hair loss treatment?

When you visit Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center for a hair loss treatment consultation, your dermatologist conducts an in-depth evaluation. The goal of the evaluation is to find the root cause of your hair loss so you get the right treatment. 

You may be a candidate for PRP hair loss treatment if you’re struggling with hereditary hair loss. PRP hair loss treatment is safe and effective, and you may prefer natural therapy over manufactured or surgical treatment options. 

How does PRP hair loss treatment work?

PRP is a type of regenerative medicine. It’s made from a sample of your blood and contains a high concentration of platelets.

Platelets are tiny substances best known for stopping your cuts from bleeding. These tiny cells also trigger the release of growth factors and specialized proteins that support healing.

When injected into your scalp, the properties in PRP reactivate dormant hair follicles and extend the hair growth cycle. 

What happens during PRP hair loss treatment?

During PRP hair loss treatment, your provider first takes a sample of blood from your arm to create the PRP. Then, your provider injects the PRP into the areas of your scalp where you’re experiencing hair thinning or balding.

To get the most benefits from your hair loss treatment, Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center recommends monthly injections for the first three months and then repeat injections at 6 months and then annually.

Many patients notice improvements in hair thickness and health after their second treatment.
