Hair Loss – What Causes it and How PRP Hair Restoration Helps?
Losing hair is one thing, losing them in chunks is what you should be concerned about. What we mean is hair fall is inevitable. It’s different from hair loss. Every hair strand falls after some time but the follicles left behind produce a new strand to replace the fallen ones. Hair loss happens when the follicle falls. Once lost, a hair follicle cannot be regenerated. When this starts happening in bulk, that leads to hair loss.
It can sometimes be genetic and some other times, it could be a result of chemically treated hair or using the wrong products (even exposure to the sun for long hours can weaken the hair follicles). The hair loss condition is known as alopecia. If left unattended, it will lead to a receding hairline or can leave you completely bald.
So, what’s the solution other than worrying about it? Well, the most effective and sure shot solution to hair loss is PRP restoration. But bear in mind, you have to get this treatment done when you still have hair left. If you’ve already gone bald, even something as advanced as PRP cannot regenerate the lost follicles.
On that note, let’s walk you through the gardens of PRP: what is it and how it helps!
What is PRP?
PRP is platelet-rich plasma. It’s so effective that dermatologists call PRP liquid gold. During the effective Clinique Anti Aging hair PRP treatment, skilled dermats will draw your blood. It’s the same process as drawing blood for a normal test: no catch here!
The blood drawn is then passed through a process known as centrifugation. During this process, the platelets are removed from the rest of the blood. These platelets are immensely rich in growth hormones. They’re, as it is, introduced inside the balding patch of the scalp.
How PRP Helps?
Pure platelets drawn from your own body will immediately trigger the process of hair growth. Besides, they will activate collagen. The collective results will be:
- Strengthening remaining hair follicles so that they don’t fall away.
- Production of new healthy hair strands.
- Strengthening hair roots so that the hair strands do not fall before their normal cycle.
Needless to say, it’s a natural process. The platelets being inserted inside your scalp belong to you. Nothing artificial or foreign is being inserted. That’s one of the reasons that there’s no threat of rejection of platelets by the body’s immune system.
Know that PRP, in no way, is a simple procedure that can be performed by any random spa. It’s a meticulous advanced procedure that should be performed under the expert eyes of experienced dermatologists only. So, when planning to get it done, pick the most trusted skin and hair care dermatological centers such as Clinique only.
