Hair Loss

Hair loss can be a distressing condition affecting both men and women. While it's normal to shed some hair daily, excessive or sudden hair loss can signal an underlying issue that needs attention. Here's a comprehensive overview of hair loss, its signs, causes and why Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment at Verve Medical Aesthetics stands out as an effective solution.

Signs of hair loss

  1. Gradual Thinning: One of the most common signs is a gradual thinning of hair, especially on the scalp.

  2. Bald Patches: Some people may notice bald patches or areas of the scalp where hair is visibly sparse.

  3. Excessive Shedding: Finding an unusual amount of hair on pillows, in the shower, or on hairbrushes can indicate excessive shedding.

  4. Receding Hairline: In men, a receding hairline, often starting at the temples, is a typical sign of male pattern baldness.

  5. Itching or Pain: In some cases, hair loss may be accompanied by itching or discomfort on the scalp.

causes of hair loss

  1. Genetics: The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary, known as androgenetic alopecia. It can affect both men and women and is often referred to as male pattern baldness or female pattern hair loss.

  2. Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormones due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or thyroid disorders can lead to temporary or permanent hair loss.

  3. Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions such as alopecia areata, scalp infections, and autoimmune diseases can cause hair loss.

  4. Stress: Emotional or physical stress can disrupt the normal hair growth cycle, leading to temporary hair loss.

  5. Nutritional Deficiencies: Inadequate intake of essential nutrients like iron, protein, and vitamins can impact hair health and contribute to hair loss.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has gained popularity as a safe and effective treatment for hair loss. Here's why it's an excellent choice at Verve Medical Aesthetics:

  1. Non-Surgical Solution: PRP for hair loss is a non-surgical procedure, making it suitable for individuals seeking natural-looking results without undergoing invasive surgery.

  2. Stimulates Hair Growth: PRP contains growth factors that promote hair growth by stimulating dormant hair follicles, leading to thicker and denser hair over time.

  3. Customised Treatment Plans: At Verve Medical Aesthetics, PRP treatments are tailored to each patient's unique needs, ensuring personalised care and optimal results.

  4. Minimal Downtime: PRP treatments typically require minimal downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities shortly after the procedure.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss harnesses the body's natural healing and regenerative properties to stimulate hair growth. Here's how the process typically works:

1. Consultation and Evaluation: Before undergoing PRP therapy, patients typically have a consultation with Dr Mark. During this consultation, we will evaluate your medical history, examine the scalp, and discuss treatment goals and expectations.

2. Blood Collection: The PRP procedure begins with the collection of a small amount of the patient's own blood, usually from the arm. The amount collected depends on the specific protocol used by the medical provider.

3. Centrifugation: Once the blood is collected, it is placed in a centrifuge, a machine that spins rapidly to separate its components. Centrifugation separates the blood into its different layers, with the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) concentrated at the top layer.

4. PRP Extraction: After centrifugation, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is carefully extracted from the collected blood using sterile techniques. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, which are rich in growth factors and other bioactive proteins essential for tissue repair and regeneration.

5. Administration of PRP: The prepared PRP is injected directly into the scalp at the targeted areas experiencing hair loss or thinning. The injections are typically administered using a fine needle, and the procedure is generally well-tolerated by patients.

6. Post-Treatment Care: Following the PRP injections, patients may be given specific instructions for post-treatment care, which may include avoiding certain hair care products or activities that could irritate the scalp. Patients are usually able to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure, as PRP therapy typically involves minimal downtime.

7. Follow-Up Sessions: PRP therapy for hair loss often requires multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. The frequency and number of sessions may vary depending on individual response to treatment and the severity of hair loss.
