A receding hairline can develop at any age following puberty. Although it’s true that hair loss around the hairline impacts more men than women, women can still be affected. Typically men start losing their hair from the temple area and then it progresses toward the center of the head. Women suffering from a receding hairline usually notice hair thinning first.
Most people suffer from thinning as they age. If you are starting to notice some hair loss, you are not alone. However, there are treatments that can help, including Platelet-rich plasma injections with microneedling.
Causes of Receding Hairline
Multiple factors can contribute to a receding hairline. When the hair follicles are damaged (which is frequently seen in men that wear hats often), those follicles will stop producing hair. You may notice that some of your relatives are having similar hair growth issues. If any of your parents or grandparents suffered from receding hairline then it’s more likely for you to experience the same. Hormonal changes can also be a factor in hair loss. Females that go through hormonal changes commonly report having a receding hairline or hair loss as a result. Regardless of why the hair loss is occurring, whenever a person starts to notice their hairline receding they start looking for treatment options. There is a quick and natural way to treat it and patients have seen incredible improvements in the fullness of their hair.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP is a treatment for hair loss that involves injections of a person’s own blood plasma to stimulate hair growth. To perform the PRP treatment, blood is first drawn from the patient. The blood is then processed in a centrifuge, which separates the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which contain concentrated amounts of growth factors. The separated plasma is injected into the scalp through tiny punctures. These minute punctures on the scalp signal the body’s healing process and the plasma growth factors trigger new growth in the area, which promotes in growing new hairs. At the Skin Care Center, we also incorporate the use of the Theradome Pro Laser Helmet to ensure maximum benefit from PRP Hair Restoration treatment.
While PRP can take multiple treatments and requires some waiting time, it is a much less invasive procedure than hair transplants. Platelet-rich plasma treatments are an eminently safe procedure with little to no downtime.
