21 Million Women Live With Hair Loss

Female pattern hair loss (FPHL), also known as female androgenetic alopecia or androgenic alopecia, can affect around 40% of women by age 50. This is caused by a reduction in hair volume, combined with hair shedding from resting hairs. FPHL can be a frustrating condition for many women, particularly those with early signs of thinning hair. Overall, female pattern hair loss is very different than male pattern baldness in how it appears. Within FPHL, hair shedding is more evenly distributed, though it can often begin with hair thinning along the top of the head, as well as a widening part line. For many, it may be their part getting wider, but for others, it may be thinning hairs near their temples that are seen first – generally, the thinning is more widespread than for males.

Studies have shown that platelet-rich plasma treatment, or PRP injections, is an effective way to improve new hair growth and hair thickness. PRP for treating hair loss uses your own blood to apply stimulating growth factors to the scalp, using a centrifuge to separate out red blood cells from restorative white blood cells and platelets that are vital for regenerative treatments within the body. PRP therapy requires virtually no downtime and can help to stimulate increased hair count and hair growth at and around a PRP injection site, creating a healthy head of hair.

The DermaCenter™ staff is committed to the highest level of customer service, and wants its clients to be informed of their options.

  • How Does PRP Work for Women’s Hair Growth?
How Does PRP Work for Women’s Hair Growth?

The PRP or platelet rich plasma procedure works by stimulating the hair follicles, scalp, and skin to encourage dormant strands of hair to surface. PRP treatment also stimulates failing or very weak hair follicles to be more productive. Women often present with fine tiny strands of hair that break off and don’t have any thickness. Platelet Rich Plasma encourages these hair follicles to produce healthy vibrant hair once again. Additionally, PRP Treatment for thinning hair helps to minimize miniaturization; thinning of hair strands due to weakening follicles. Thicker hair strands, stronger producing follicles and revived dormant follicles presents a fuller, richer, healthier, more voluminous look.

At the start of the procedure, we take a small amount of the patient’s blood. The blood is spun twice in a special centrifuge in order to extract its nutrient-rich platelets. The plasma is then fortified with the very concentrated platelets (platelet rich plasma) and prepared for injection. After administering a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort, we inject the healthy mixture across the patient’s scalp. Women who receive PRP therapy experience no major side effects.

  • How long does it take to notice results?
How long does it take to notice results?

Palpable results are typically seen within four weeks. It is recommended to receive three treatments approximately four to six weeks apart. Because many physicians have reported improved hair regeneration with ongoing PRP treatment, women often return for a series of treatments followed by another series or intermittent treatments.

  • Should I consider surgery instead?
Should I consider surgery instead?

For most female patients, invasive hair restoration surgeries have delivered historically low performance; this safe and natural alternative can be a life-changing. In fact, PRP’s stimulation of enhanced scalp blood flow and possible recruitment of hair follicle stem cells has produced significantly better outcomes in women than other previous treatment options.
