There is no secret about it, the effects of aging can take quite a toll on the entire body. Even the hair on your head is not exempt from unwanted changes. Over time, hair can start falling out which can negatively affect self-confidence and self-esteem. Women sometimes choose wigs to help cover the problem, while men may start wearing hats. A more long-term solution is available for those who wish to explore treatment. PRP Hair Treatment in NJ could be the solution for you. The experts at Metro Dermatology can help you determine if this is your best option.
Losing hair is simply one of the least gratifying aspects of life, whether that it is due to poor lifestyle or diet, hereditary factors, or stress. Although it is quite normal to shed some hair every day, no one wants to start seeing numerous strands of hair in the bottom of the shower or in a brush.
Extreme hair loss is not something you want to ignore because before long you may be losing more than your body can replace. Alopecia is a condition where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles. The result is usually extreme, but not permanent, hair loss.
PRP And How It’s Used For Hair Treatment
The acronym PRP is often used in place of Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy. This is a recently discovered treatment used for hair loss. It is considered safe and has been approved by the FDA as an effective treatment for a number of anti-aging treatments.
During PRP hair treatment in NJ, patients are injected with platelet and collagen-rich plasma. This injection is into the head around areas of hair loss in much the same way as it is used to inject into facial skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as scars.
Hair growth, as well as a more youthful skin appearance, is achieved because the platelets and collagen along with other growth factors in the plasma, rejuvenate the underlying cells to help them actively grow new cells and hair again.
3 Surprising Facts
1. The patient’s own blood is used by the PRP physician to collect and isolate the platelet-rich plasma. This plasma is then mixed with a proprietary activating compound. This blend of good blood cells and the activating ingredients are then injecting into the patient to stimulate re-growth. Since it is the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of it being rejected or being less than effective.
2. PRP hair treatment in NJ is highly successful in halting and reversing the effects of thinning hair follicles. The thinning of hair follicles is a major contributor to hair loss. Within just three to six months, many patients who have been given this treatment see positive results. Because it is a gradual process, patients are better able to adjust to the natural re-growth of hair.
3. PRP hair treatment in NJ is surprisingly affordable and it can be used in conjunction with hair transplants for those wishing to experience even greater results.
Something else that surprises many people about PRP hair treatment in NJ is that it can be done with little discomfort to the patient. This is especially true when the procedure is completed by well trained and experienced professionals such as those at Metro dermatology in New York.
