If you have hair loss, this can affect your self-esteem. Fortunately, you do have options to help new hair grow to replace the hair that you lost. Below are two of these options to help you determine which option you would like to choose.
PRP Hair Therapy
One option you have is PRP hair therapy. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This is a medical treatment where a doctor will remove your blood, process the blood, and the inject the blood into your scalp. The blood is injected into different areas of your scalp where you are having air loss. These injections will be a little painful but only for a few seconds.
The platelets in the blood will help natural hair to start growing. Blood supply is also increased to your hair follicles, which helps the new hair to be thicker. You do have to have maintenance treatments every four to six months if you choose PRP hair therapy services to keep your new hair in place and to keep new hair growing.
Your doctor can explain to you how this works in much more details, as well as possible side effects this can cause.
Another option you have to help you have more hair is a hair transplant. There are two types of hair transplants that are available — follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
The FUE procedure involves removing your hair follicles from your scalp and then transplanting the hair follicles to the area of your scalp that is losing hair. This procedure is considered a surgery, so you will have to stay in the hospital.
The FUT procedure is a common treatment. With this, the doctor will remove a small amount of skin from an area of your scalp where there is thick hair growing. The doctor will remove skin where it is not noticeable, which is normally the back of the scalp. The doctor will then remove hair follicles from the skin they removed and transplant the hair follicles to the areas of your scalp that is losing hair.
Your insurance company may not cover these procedures, as this is known as a cosmetic procedure. Because of this, hair transplants can get very expensive for you.
Contact a hair therapy services company to provide these procedures for you. This service can give you much more information, as well as tell you of other options you have.
