Hair Loss Q & A

Why am I experiencing hair loss?

There are numerous possible causes of hair loss. It can occur on your whole head, in patches, or all over your body. Regardless of the reason why your hair thins, your confidence may suffer because of it.

Your hair loss may be linked to one or more of these common causes:

  • Repeated pulling hairstyles 
  • Harsh hair products
  • Aging
  • Genetics 
  • Certain medications
  • Radiation therapy on your head
  • Periods of high stress in your life
  • Malnutrition

Losing your hair doesn’t always call for a visit to your doctor. Many hair loss patients learn to embrace their baldness or cope by using bandanas, wigs, or toupees. 

You should visit ABC Aesthetics if your hair loss takes a toll on your self-image and simply covering your scalp doesn’t help. 

How can I combat my hair loss?

In some cases, hair grows back. If you’ve lost lots of hair because of a disease or treatment for a disease, it may grow back seamlessly once the issue is eradicated. 

To stimulate your hair growth and restore your self-confidence, ABC Aesthetics offers two types of hair growth treatment to help you grow your natural hair back:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a therapeutic substance created using your own blood. It harnesses the healing properties of your blood platelets and growth factors. 

When injected into a balding or thinning scalp, it may help to restore blood flow to the area and repair hair follicles to promote growth.

Platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM)

Platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) is an advanced derivative of PRP. Your PRP is purified to eradicate any remaining red blood cells, white blood cells, or other contaminants. Then your provider adds calcium chloride to make the substance less liquid and more structured. 

When injected into a thinning scalp, PRFM promotes hair growth that is thicker or even darker than before.

Am I a good candidate for these hair loss treatments?

PRP and PRFM are effective in improving hair growth for many patients, but they aren’t effective in all cases. Your provider at ABC Aesthetics assesses the cause and severity of your hair loss before deciding if injections are appropriate for your treatment plan.
