Hair Growth Treatment Q & A

Why would I need hair growth treatment?

You may decide to get hair growth treatment when balding or thinning areas become noticeable. Hair loss occurs for many reasons, including:

  • Physical or emotional stress
  • Hormonal imbalances (including menopause)
  • Unbalanced diet
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Wearing tight braids or ponytails
  • Fungal infections

However, the top cause of hair loss comes from an inherited condition called androgenetic alopecia. This condition causes nearly all hair loss in men. Androgenetic alopecia also accounts for many cases of hair loss in women.

Androgenetic alopecia (also called male-pattern and female-pattern baldness) makes your hair follicles hypersensitive to a hormone called DHT and causes the follicles to shrink. At first, the follicles grow thinner hair, but over time, they stop producing new hair.

How does hair loss differ between men and women?

Male-pattern baldness leads to predictable patterns of hair loss. Men develop a receding hairline and lose hair on the top of their heads, leaving a band of healthy hair around their heads.

Female-pattern baldness doesn't cause a noticeable pattern. While women may notice thinning at their part line, they lose hair evenly all over their scalp.

How does hair growth treatment work?

National Wellness Group offers natural hair growth treatment in the form of PRP injections. PRP consists of platelets combined with plasma, which come from your own blood.

Platelets release specialized proteins that trigger your body's healing response. They also:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Trigger new blood vessel growth
  • Stimulate collagen production
  • Recruit stem cells to the area

The stem cells regenerate the new tissues needed to heal and restore healthy hair follicles.

When Dr. Yuabova injects PRP, the platelets accelerate hair follicle healing. This results in new hair growth and an increase in hair thickness. 

What should I expect during my hair growth treatment?

Dr. Yuabova draws a blood sample and then places it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from other blood cells. She produces your treatment by combining a concentrated amount of platelets with plasma.

Dr. Yuabova applies a potent anesthetic cream to your scalp to ensure your comfort. Then she injects PRP into balding or thinning areas. After four months, you have a follow-up appointment so she can evaluate your results.

Most patients need four hair growth treatments scheduled four weeks apart to obtain the best results. After your initial four sessions, Dr. Yuabova recommends a long-term maintenance plan.
