Hair loss and baldness are common in both men and women and can affect self-esteem and self-confidence. At Juvenate Medical Wellness & Rejuvenation in West Long Branch, New Jersey, wellness and aesthetic specialist Sunita Mann, MD, can restore your hair loss naturally with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). To learn more about PRP and hair loss, call the office or request an appointment online.
Most hair loss is due to a form of androgenetic alopecia or what you may know better as male- or female-pattern baldness. While medication and illness can lead to hair loss, this form of hair thinning and baldness is usually due to genetics.
It’s estimated that this form of hair loss affects 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States. Dr. Mann understands the toll hair loss has on self-esteem and offers a natural solution to restore thickness and fullness to your head with PRP.
PRP is an innovative treatment that rejuvenates health by harnessing the natural healing properties in your body. PRP is a blood product Dr. Mann creates from a sample of your own blood that she spins in a centrifuge to separate the components of your blood, including plasma and platelets that contain growth factors and specialized proteins.
When injected into your scalp, the healing cells prolong the growing phase of your hair cycle to improve hair health, growth, and strength.
Dr. Mann conducts your hair loss treatment at the office. After she’s prepared your PRP, she applies an anesthetic to your scalp to reduce discomfort during your PRP injections. Then she injects the PRP into precise areas of your scalp to get the desired results. Juvenate Medical is the only practice that uses nitrous oxide to help make the procedure more comfortable for their patients.
There’s no downtime following your hair loss treatment and you can resume your usual activities afterward. Because hair grows in cycles, Dr. Mann recommends a series of PRP injections to get the most benefits. Depending on your needs, she may recommend monthly injections for three months, followed by injections every three to four months for up to two years.
While results may vary, you should start to notice an improvement in your hair about three months after you start your hair loss treatment. PRP for hair loss is as effective as other treatments and usually causes fewer, if any, side effects.
