Hair loss is a condition that can affect both males and females, impacting hair volume and leading to the development of bald patches. While there can be a range of causes, pregnancy and post-partum hair loss are commonly experienced. Fortunately, PRP treatment is available to minimise the rate of hair loss and promote the growth of new hair. At Bay Medical Aesthetics, we offer innovative PRP injections for hair loss to improve the health of the scalp and stimulate hair growth.
The average person loses 50-100 hairs each day, which typically isn’t noticed due to new hairs continually growing back to replace the ones lost. Hair loss is experienced when new hairs are affected during the growth cycle, interrupting the growth process. There are a range of factors that can contribute to hair loss, including:
Other factors that can increase the risk of hair loss or balding include age, sudden weight loss and poor nutrition.
PRP injections, also known as platelet-rich plasma injections, can be used to treat hair loss by stimulating new hair growth on the scalp. The treatment involves drawing a small sample of blood from the patient, inserting the blood into a centrifuge to isolate the platelets, and injecting these platelets into the patient’s scalp to boost hair growth. For best results, this should be done while the hair growth cycle is in the active growth phase. Treatment with PRP injections for hair loss can bring about the growth of new hair while also thickening existing hair, helping to achieve fuller, healthier hair.
