Are you tired of wearing wigs? Do you want to treat hair loss once and for all? Do people think you are older than you are because you have patches or hair missing throughout your scalp? Have you lost your hair because of a stressful event? If you answer yes to one of these questions or more, you may be a good candidate for a PRP treatment for hair loss.
By the time most men and women hit 35, they will experience hair loss. Although balding patterns differ for men and women, they have similar genetic causes.
For men, hair loss typical occurs on top and front of the head. For women, it starts to occur on top and the crown of the head. Shedding hair is different than actual hair loss. Hair loss (medically known as Alopecia) occurs when hair falls out and does not grow back, overtime, resulting in baldness.
Beside hereditary factors, hair loss can result from: hormone imbalances, harsh hair styles or treatments, illness or surgery, aging, and nutritional deficits.
Surgical hair loss treatments can be costly, lasers and topical hair loss treatments are often ineffective and prices add up. Men and women emotionally suffer from hair loss and it often effect their self esteem.
With PRP, hair follicles are stimulated to start growing, causing an increase in the amount of hair over a period of time. Bald sports turn into spots covered with hair, without surgery or downtime.
Dr. Kassir specializes in PRP treatments for hairloss, for men and women of different age goups. The number and frequency of treatments depends on the individual, that's why we encourage our patients to come in for a consultation to discuss their options.
