Hair Restoration: Medication or PRP?

There are some problems that have been around for so long that many of us think they’re unsolvable. Whether we’re dealing with poor decisions from other people, or it’s just our body aging in a way we’re not happy about, sometimes we do just have to accept what’s going on. But, hair loss may not be one of those things. Keep reading to learn more about how we can help you.

Why am I losing hair?

We recommend seeing a doctor to determine what may be causing your specific type of hair loss. Understanding your hair loss and your options is key to making a smart decision about how to attack your hair restoration plan.

It’s not just genetics. Did you know that hair loss can be caused by stress, shock, or even when you use new medications? Depending on where you’re losing hair, and the pattern it makes on your scalp, we can pinpoint what is causing it. Once we determine why you’re losing hair, we can help you formulate a plan to restore it.

For example, if your hair loss looks like male pattern baldness, then it’s likely the cause of your hair loss. It takes a predictable course along your head. Rogaine and Propecia are common options to try at the beginning of your hair restoration journey, but they may not be as helpful as you hope they will be.

PRP

If you have tried Rogaine and Propecia, and they haven’t worked for you, or you just want to try something else before taking medications, you may be interested in learning more about PRP (or platelet-rich plasma). The use of platelet-rich plasma may feel like the right choice for you if you’re looking to increase hair volume but don’t want to undergo surgery to do so, or if you know medication isn’t helping your case. PRP is not invasive and you don’t need to be sedated for the procedure. PRP treatment uses your own blood plasma and allows it to penetrate the scalp and reach the hair follicles where it can stimulate the growth of new hair.

It’s time to talk about options if you’re trying to get your hair back. Call us today at (281) 364-9898 to schedule a consultation with us.
