Did you know that both men and women can suffer from hair thinning and loss? In fact, more than 80% of men and nearly half of women will experience significant hair loss during their lifetime. For many people, hair thinning begins even before middle age. But, what causes it?
Hair loss is largely genetically determined. DNA polymorphisms upregulate anagen (hair loss) and put the telogen (growth phase) in hibernation. However, there are strategies that can be employed to turn the hair loss genes off and turn on hair growth. At VitaLab, we approach hair regeneration holistically and use the techniques that best fit each patient’s situation.
Men and women who are bothered by hair thinning or loss can benefit from our hair restoration treatment options. Because each treatment option is unique, each will have its own ideal candidates and contraindications. To learn more about these treatment options and if you are an ideal candidate, contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment.
At VitaLab, we offer a variety of hair restoration treatment options, including:
PRP therapy for hair loss is a multi-step treatment process in which nutrient-rich blood platelets are injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth. To begin treatment, a small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm and placed into a centrifuge, which will spin the blood to separate the platelet-rich plasma. Next, the PRP or exosomes are drawn into a syringe and injected into the scalp to promote hair growth. To maintain results, it is recommended to receive maintenance treatments every 4-6 months.
Red light therapy is an effective and natural treatment option to address thinning hair without chemicals, UV rays, or excessive heat. Red infrared wavelengths of light stimulate the mitochondria in your cells, reducing oxidative stress and increasing circulation. This, in turn, stimulates the growth of healthy hair. There have been various studies performed regarding the use of low-level laser therapy for treating alopecia, and hair regrowth, which point towards effective outcomes of this treatment.
Both men and women can develop hormonal imbalances that can lead to hair loss or thinning. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can slow or prevent hair loss for a boost in confidence.
At VitaLab, we have a variety of vitamin and nutrient blends that can be administered via IV or injection for optimal absorption. Oral supplementation is also sometimes an ideal option, depending on your individual deficiency. We will work with you to determine the best treatment option to help you achieve healthy hair growth.
