More than half of all men and women experience some form of hair loss during their lifetime. Hair loss can negatively affect a person’s everyday life as well as personal relationships. Hair loss can be a frustrating and overwhelming experience. However, there is hope with regenerative treatment options.
You may have heard the term stem-cell used somewhere before, but have you ever wondered exactly what it means, what it was referring to? You can think of a stem cell as your body’s most basic building block, possessing no particular form or function. Stem cells are used to create the cells in your body for specific functions. Stem cells derive from sources like amniotic fluid. Stem cells can help your body heal, while Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can repair tissue damage with your body’s platelets.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss is a simple, minimally invasive, three step process. First, the patient’s blood is drawn, typically from your arm or leg. Next, the blood is placed in a centrifuge until separated into three layers, the red blood cells on the bottom, the platelet-rich plasma above that, and the platelet-poor plasma on top. The last step is to separate the platelet-rich plasma, and administer it to the affected areas of the scalp.
Compared to PRP, stem cell treatments do not stimulate the dormant hair follicles in the scalp. For those looking for a more effective solution to their hair loss dilemmas, The Pure Hair Restoration Center offers stem cell treatment, more commonly known as hair transplant surgery. This option is more suitable for when hair follicles are permanently damaged and need to be replaced by new healthy cells.
At the Pure Hair Restoration Center, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to have beautiful hair. This is why we offer an extensive list of therapies, supplements, and even minimally invasive treatments to help promote the wellness and longevity of your hair. The Pure Hair Restoration Center specializes in male and female hair transplants, as well as regenerative medicine, including PRP therapy for hair loss.
