Hair thinning or hair loss can be multifactorial and include genetics, habits, nutritional deficiencies, stress and hormonal imbalances.
Treatment for hair thinning or hair loss includes addressing any underlying medical conditions, evaluating diet, and stress reduction. Along with use of DHT blocking supplements, one treatment that has been found to be beneficial is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP treatments involve drawing of blood using specific tubes, spinning down the blood and injecting the liquid portion of the blood into the scalp. The serum contains growth factors, proteins, and of course platelets. The components in the blood’s serum have found to stimulate the follicle to enter an active growth phase, resulting in growth of hair and improvement in the quality of existing hair.
