Hair Loss / Alopecia
Our hair is our crown. It is a focal part of our overall look and aesthetic. When we feel like we do not look our best, we internalize that and we don’t feel like ourselves. Hair loss and thinning can happen in both men and women genetically and with age. While there are some medications that can offer some hair growth for both genders, it is often a struggle to get the kind of natural hair regrowth you’re looking for. That’s why we at Allergy & Skin Spa recommend PRP or platelet-rich plasma injections for hair loss. This involves injection of your own plasma which contains natural growth factors to stimulate hair growth. If you struggle with your hair falling out or thinning, contact us today to set up a consultation to see what methods work best for you.
What Is Alopecia?
There are a lot of things we can not control in life. When it comes to losing your hair, it can take a toll on our self-esteem and confidence. Knowing that you have options to help you combat some of your concerns shines light during our dark times. Alopecia is a disease that develops when the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles causing your to lose hair. This can be a hereditary trait or an outcome of stress. You can lose hair anywhere on your body, including your scalp, inside your nose, and in your ears. Some people lose their eyelashes or eyebrows. At Allergy & Skin Spa, we offer treatments and solutions to help you get back to feeling and looking like yourself.
What Are Common Causes of Hair Loss?
There are many types of hair loss, finding the cause can be challenging. Genetics plays the biggest role in androgenetic loss of hair. Often, there is little we can do to completely prevent the process from starting, but it is important to begin treatments early. This helps lessen hair loss and stimulate those follicles that are shrinking. Stalling hair loss through ongoing treatment and care can make hair thinning a thing of the past. Non-scarring hair loss also happens in situations where there is physical or chemical damage to the hair shaft, resulting in breakage. Occasionally, it may be necessary to do a biopsy of the scalp to distinguish these conditions. Sometimes, a physician may pull a hair to examine the appearance of the hair shaft as well as the percentage of growing hairs. Our team is happy to become part of your journey to retain your mane if you’re interested in our help.
What Are the Signs of Hair Loss?
Do you think you may be experiencing chronic hair loss? If your answer’s yes, we have solutions for you to regain control of your hair health. The good news is that the earlier you take action, the more hair you can keep. Hair loss often follows a common pattern. Typical signs of this issue include hairline changing, thinning hair, and a large amount of loss after showering or brushing. If these are some of the concerns you have questions about and want to address, our team at Allergy & Skin Spa are happy to set up a consultation with you to discuss treatment options with you.
What Is PRP Injection Therapy?
PRP injection therapy is a treatment that can have benefits both for skin renewal and hair growth. It is a simple three-step process that can produce remarkable results. We draw a small amount of your blood, and use a centrifuge to separate out the plasma that is rich in healing and growth factors. This is the part of the blood that clots to heal you when you are injured. We then perform Microneedling on the scalp. This involves creating many micro-injuries in the scalp to “wake up” the follicles and get your hair growing again. Finally, we infuse a solution made from your plasma into the target area of the scalp.
