Hair Restoration Treatments in Albuquerque
When most people begin to lose their hair, they panic. Whether it’s the loss of a small patch of hair, or overall baldness, many patients feel like they are losing a part of their identity. Hair loss of any magnitude can be a painful experience. Luckily, new advances in regenerative hair treatment can alter your hair loss trajectory and even help you regain what you’ve lost.
What is Regenerative Hair Treatment?
Regenerative hair treatment helps to arrest your hair loss and facilitate grow, even in areas that have gone completely bald. Using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, you can regain hair through a non-surgical procedure. PRP involves a physician withdrawing a small amount of blood from your arm and placing a vial of that blood into a centrifuge. In the centrifuge, the components of the blood (platelets, plasma, and red and white blood cells) separate, allowing the doctor to inject a contrate of your platelets and plasma back into your skin. PRP injections have been known to wake up inactive hair follicles and promote growth overall. If you’ve recently undergone a hair transplant procedure, PRP can be used in tandem to promote healthy, expedited growth.
How Do I Know If I’m a Good Candidate for Regenerative Hair Treatment?
PRP is a viable solution for a person who has experienced hair loss at any level. Appropriate candidates for PRP include people who have experienced any of the following:
- Male-pattern hair loss
- Female-pattern hair loss
- Telogen effluvium
Are There Safety Risks Associated with PRP Hair Restoration Treatments?
PRP has applications in a range of contexts. The treatment was made most popular by athletes in the NFL, NBA, and NHL to heal a range of injuries sustained during games and training. Over time, researchers realized that PRP could be used in non-injury contexts as well, including for regenerative hair treatment. Platelet-rich plasma is safe because it uses substances your own body has produced. There are no foreign substances introduced to your scalp, so you can be assured that you won’t experience potential allergies or drug interactions that may be associated with other hair loss treatments.
