Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Restoration
Thinning hair plagues many men and women, and most people are not aware of the latest options for the treatment of this condition. In the past, hair restoration specialists have recommended hair implants, medications, and lifestyle changes, but Los Angeles PRP Hair Loss Doctor, Alija Ali, D.O., is now offering innovative Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy to patients in Whittier and Los Angeles County, California. He is achieving astounding success with this non-surgical, cutting-edge treatment option.
PRP Therapy can be effective on its own, or it can be used in conjunction with other therapies. Many men and women appreciate that it does not require surgery or downtime — and because it’s created from your own blood, there are virtually no side effects.
Male Hair Loss and Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Male pattern baldness can occur with men as early as the age of 19 years old, while some men may not notice hair loss until their 40’s or 50’s. Often, men experience hair loss due to genetic factors or because they have higher levels of dihydrotestosterone, which is a form of testosterone that kills hair follicles. Alopecia may start with a receding hairline, or patches of hair may start to go missing.
- Some reasons alopecia can occur in men include:
- Testosterone imbalances
- Genetic factors
Whatever the reason for your hair loss, Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy can stimulate hair regrowth, or it can arrest or slow down the rate of hair loss. PRP Therapy works for hair restoration by injecting stem cells from the patient’s blood into the scalp, to provide nutrition to hair follicles and stimulate the healing of damaged tissues. Once nutrition to hair follicles is restored, men may experience the regrowth of their hair. Los Angeles PRP Hair Loss Doctor, Alija Ali, D.O., can guide men through the process of hair restoration with Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, or a combination of PRP Therapies and other hair restoration products and procedures.
Female Hair Loss and Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Many women experience alopecia or hair thinning around the age of 35, with the beginning of perimenopause. As hormones begin to decline, women’s hair may become dry and brittle, leading to hair loss. Women can also struggle with hair loss following pregnancy, as their hormones are rebounding and returning to pre-pregnancy levels.
- Some of the reasons women lose their hair include:
- Estrogen and progesterone imbalances
- Hormonal decline
- Cushing’s disease
- Medication side effects
While men may be accustomed to the idea of losing their hair, it can be truly devastating for women who lose luscious locks. Luckily, Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy can promote hair regrowth and restore lustrous hair volume and thickness. Los Angeles PRP Hair Loss Doctor, Alija Ali, D.O., creates a high concentration of your own blood platelets and the growth factors therein, and injects that innovative solution into the areas of your scalp that need restoration. Many women have been able to eliminate balding spots or stimulate the growth of an overall fuller head of hair with Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy at Dr. Ali’s Whittier, CA-based clinic, Alija Aesthetics, Weight Loss, and Anti-Aging.
Getting Started with PRP Therapy for Hair Restoration
Even though PRP Therapy is a relatively new treatment for hair restoration, it has been used successfully for many decades to regenerate and heal damaged tissue in the joints and spine. Now, physicians are using the benefits of the growth factors found in Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy to help women and men improve their aesthetic appearance as well.
Before getting started with Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, Dr. Ali will perform a full medical intake and discuss your medical history, lifestyle habits, and treatment goals. Then, he will design a treatment plan that may include Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy alone, or combined with other products and procedures, to help patients achieve their hair restoration goals. Countless men and women now enjoy thicker, more evenly distributed hair following Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for hair loss after following Dr. Alija Ali’s treatment plans.
