Getting old can take a toll on your looks, affecting both hair and skin.
Typically, both men and women suffer from thinning hair as they age, with nearly 80 million people in the United States alone finding their locks a bit lackluster.
The most common cause of thinning hair is Androgenic Alopecia:
- Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Baldness are forms of Androgenic Alopecia
- It is also known as Androgenetic Alopecia
Most people notice the following predictable signs of aging in their faces over time:
- Crow’s feet
- Lines around the lips
- Depressions around the mouth and nose
- Volume loss
- Dehydrated skin
- Loss of skin tone and texture
Many people struggle with their changing looks as they age. Although aging is a natural process, you can control it to some extent.
How Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Can Benefit Your Hair and Face
Don’t let age keep you from wanting to look in the mirror. PRP is a modern way to combat thinning hair and aging skin that’s simple and effective when performed by a skilled professional.
What is PRP?
PRP has been in frequent medical use since the 1980s when doctors began using it in open heart surgery and maxillofacial surgery. It has now been applied to multiple medical fields such as sports medicine, pain management, dentistry, and cosmetics.
Now, cutting-edge science has allowed us to harness its effectiveness to provide facial rejuvenation and hair restoration using the natural healing properties of your own blood.
In PRP, your blood is drawn as in a blood test. It’s run through a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets. The platelets have growth factors that nourish the skin of your scalp and face. The platelets, mixed with plasma from your blood, then can be applied to your skin and/or scalp.
PRP has been shown to stimulate growth of thinning hair follicles with minimal side-effects in randomized, placebo-controlled trials. This makes it a good solution for hair restoration, particularly for individuals just beginning to see hair loss.
As a therapy for facial rejuvenation, PRP shows remarkable ability to stimulate collagen production and repair skin on a cellular level, promoting a smoother, more youthful complexion.
