Hair Repair can be a potential approach to address hormonal imbalances and promote hair quality. Here’s a general guide on how to combine BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and experience rapid hair growth.
Causes of hair loss, first understanding the factors:
Hereditary hair loss: Hair loss can be a distressing experience for both men and women, and it’s important to explore the various causes behind it. One of the most common culprits is hereditary hair loss, which affects individuals regardless of their gender. In men, it is commonly referred to as male pattern hair loss, while women experience female pattern hair loss. Medically, this condition is known as androgenic alopecia. Essentially, hereditary hair loss occurs when you inherit specific genes that cause your hair follicles (the tiny structures from which each hair grows) to gradually shrink and eventually stop producing hair altogether. While the shrinking process may begin as early as your teenage years, it usually becomes noticeable later in life.
Aging: As we age, many of us start to notice that our hair isn’t as thick and voluminous as it used to be. It’s a natural part of getting older. Over time, our hair growth slows down, and this can lead to visible hair loss. Several factors contribute to this, such as changes in our hormones and reduced blood flow to the scalp. For women, the initial signs of hereditary hair loss often manifest as the overall thinning of the hair or a widening part. On the other hand, men typically experience a receding hairline or develop a bald spot at the top of their head as the first indicators of this condition.
Stress: Experiencing a sudden increase in hair shedding can be alarming when significant life events or physical changes occur. It’s like your body’s way of saying, “Hey, things have been intense lately!” Whether you’ve just welcomed a precious new life into the world, dealt with illness, undergone surgery, or faced emotional turmoil, this shedding tends to happen a few months later.
This temporary condition, called telogen effluvium, messes with the natural hair growth cycle. When you’re stressed or traumatized, your body shifts its focus away from hair growth and redirects resources to vital functions. As a result, a larger portion of your hair enters the resting phase. Eventually, these hairs reach the end of their life cycle and start falling out, leading to noticeable hair loss. Whether it’s the physical stress of a new life, illness, or surgery, the emotional strain from the end of a marriage, or the loss of a loved one, your body will react by disrupting the hair growth cycle.
At Longevity, we understand that your health and well-being are unique and require personalized attention. That’s why we specialize in providing treatments tailored to your individual needs. Our compassionate team takes the time to evaluate your requirements, conducting thorough assessments to determine the most suitable options.
When it comes to hormonal imbalances and hair loss, we offer Hormone Assessment and BHRT. By identifying any deficiencies or imbalances through comprehensive hormone testing, we can create a customized plan for you. BHRT involves using hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally produced by your body, helping restore balance and potentially reducing hair loss.
We also offer Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Repair therapy. This innovative treatment utilizes the growth factors and platelets found in your blood plasma to stimulate hair growth, providing a natural and effective solution. We are dedicated to enhancing your well-being by providing personalized and advanced treatments that address your unique concerns. Take the first step toward the PRP procedure and find out how we can restore hair loss:
- Blood Collection: A small amount of your blood is drawn, usually from your arm, and placed in a centrifuge.
- Centrifugation: The centrifuge separates the blood into its components, including plasma, platelets, and growth factors.
- PRP Extraction: The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is extracted from the centrifuged blood.
- Scalp Preparation: Your scalp is cleansed and prepared for the PRP application.
- PRP Injection: The PRP is injected into your scalp using fine needles or delivered topically through micro-needling or a derma roller.
We recommend initiating BHRT before or concurrently with PRP therapy to address any hormonal imbalances while promoting hair growth.
Follow-up and Maintenance: Both BHRT and PRP require ongoing care and maintenance. Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, adjust hormone dosages if needed, and assess the effectiveness of the PRP treatment. Continue your complimentary hair care practices, such as a healthy diet, stress management, and proper scalp hygiene, to optimize results.
