Tips for Women with Thinning Hair

The American Academy of Dermatology reports that more than 40% of women will experience noticeable hair loss by the age of 40. While hair thinning treatments for women is not a new occurrence in the aesthetics field, in more recent years, innovative technologies have opened up more options to women, meaning you no longer have to rely on a certain hairstyle or updo to hide those thinning spots. Hair restoration services for women are beginning to rise and news regarding treatments is slowly starting to spread.

The female hair loss treatment market is complex, making it an intimidating area to research. Recommended treatments are typically dependent on the cause of female hair loss, the health of the patient’s donor hair, and the patient’s targeted results.

There is an increasing trend in PRP scalp injections for treating hair thinning in females. PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma) therapy for hair loss relies on growth factors drawn from your own blood to stimulate follicle growth. Blood is taken from your arm, spun in test tubes in a centrifuge to separate red blood cells from the plasma that contains platelets rich in growth factors—the molecules that signal to follicles to stop resting and start growing—and the plasma is then injected into the scalp in the areas where hair thinning is occurring. Multiple treatment sessions are recommended for optimal results. Furthermore, while the treatment may be used alone, studies suggest PRP therapy may pack a more potent punch when used in conjunction with stem cells derived from the embryo umbilical cord. This combination ( PRP+Stem Cells) is way more potent and effective than the stand-alone PRP treatment.
