Hair loss has become a growing concern among male and female, according to the American Association, at least 85% of men and 40% of women report noticeable by age 50. Even younger people are beginning to report as early as in their 20s with male pattern baldness being the most common type.
On the average, a person loses 100-150 strands of hair per day, which is normal and barely noticeable because new hairs are constantly growing to replace the ones that have fallen out. True hair loss occurs when the hair growth cycle is disrupt or when a hair follicle is destroye or shrunken.
Steroid injections can be extremely helpful in certain hair loss conditions such as alopecia areata (AA) lichen planopilaris (LPP), frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA), central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA) and folliculitis decalvans. Many time even in the early stages of traction alopecia the use of steroid can greatly improve the hairloss symptoms.
Platelet-Rich Plasma, also known as PRP is the most effective non-surgical treatment for hair loss. The procedure requires a small amount of the patient’s blood to be drawn, plasma is then separate from the blood by spinning the blood in a medical grade centrifuge.
To aid the hair growth process, we sometimes add A Cell extracellular matrix protein or Stem Cell to PRP to significantly aid in new tissue/hair growth. The affected area is microneedle at the office, client is also encouraged to continue the microneedling with stem cell at home.
