Facing Hair Loss? You’re Not Alone

Have you ever stood in front of the mirror, anxiety mounting as you notice those extra strands on your brush? You’re not alone. Hair loss and thinning are challenges millions of people face. In fact, around 50 million men and 30 million women grapple with some degree of hair loss. While it’s often associated with age, surprisingly, even those under thirty-five are not spared. Some, when faced with this, make lifestyle tweaks—maybe donning a stylish wig or opting for eyelash extensions, the question remains: why does this happen?


Alopecia: The Undercover Culprit

Accounting for a significant chunk of hair loss cases is alopecia areata—an autoimmune disorder affecting about 2% of folks out there. The immune system, in a case of mistaken identity, goes after the hair follicles. While the initial signs might be just small patches of hair loss, sometimes the situation can escalate.

Alopecia Totalis: Complete hair loss on the scalp.

Alopecia Universalis: Hair loss over the entire body.


Guess what? Alopecia isn’t picky. Regardless of age, gender, or race, anyone could be its next target. And a significant number of those affected are under the age of 35.


What to Look Out For!

Typical signs? Smooth, round patches of hair loss that seem to just pop up overnight. While the scalp is the usual victim, other body parts aren’t always safe. And if you’re really paying attention, you might notice reddened patches or even tiny, raised spots.

Hair loss might not always be a one-off incident. While some might see hair make a comeback, others might experience recurring symptoms or, unfortunately, no hair regrowth at all. Beyond the physical, hair loss can weigh heavily on one’s emotions. Feelings of anxiety and even depression aren’t uncommon, especially among women.


Seeking Solutions?

Though there’s no magic wand to banish alopecia for good, strides have been made in treatment. From tried-and-tested natural remedies to breakthrough methods, there’s hope. A tip of the hat to dermatologists for pioneering some of these game-changers!

If hair loss is keeping you up at night, consider chatting with our hair loss specialists. They’ve got the know-how to help you navigate your journey and select a treatment tailored just for you.

While alopecia areata often takes center stage in hair loss discussions, there’s a broader spectrum of conditions to be aware of. Androgenic Alopecia, tied to genetics and hormones, leads to the commonly recognized patterns of hair thinning in both men and women. Telogen Effluvium arises due to stressors like childbirth or significant weight shifts, causing temporary hair fall.

Traction Alopecia is the aftermath of hairstyles that exert constant pull, causing potential long-term follicle damage. Women of African descent might be familiar with CCCA, where hair loss starts from the crown and radiates outward, possibly due to a combination of genetic and external factors.

 Lastly, the rarer Lichen Planopilaris is an inflammatory ailment leading to patchy hair loss accompanied by discomforting sensations like itching. These forms highlight the diverse ways our hair can be affected, emphasizing the need for tailored care and attention.


PRP Therapy for Hair Loss

Discovering PRP: Liquid Gold for Hair

Ever thought your own blood could be the secret to lush hair? Enter PRP therapy, a non-surgical route to hair restoration. In this method, your Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is reintroduced to your scalp—either slathered on like a luxurious serum or injected right where your hair seems to be thinning. It’s all about giving those weary hair follicles a pep talk!

Now, PRP sounds fancy, but it’s just blood that’s richer in platelets. Why platelets? They’re the little champs responsible for clotting. But more importantly, they’re packed with growth factors and proteins – think of them as the ‘miracle-grow’ for stem cells.

Here’s the lowdown on PRP:

Tackling Hair Loss: Particularly effective against that pesky male or female pattern baldness, PRP not only puts a stop to hair loss and shedding but also rolls out the red carpet for new growth.


Post-Transplant Boost: Got a hair transplant? PRP can work wonders in stimulating growth thereafter.


Fighting Father Time: Beyond hair, PRP injections coupled with microneedling treatments can push back against the signs of aging. It’s a gentler alternative to other treatments with fewer side effects.


Getting Ready for Your PRP Hair Treatment: The Ultimate Guide


Hey there! So, you’re contemplating on giving PRP a shot for your hair loss? Awesome choice. Before you dive in, let’s make sure you’re prepped and ready for the best results. Here’s your go-to guide:


Prepping for PRP: The Countdown Begins!


Chat with Your Hair BFF (a.k.a. Your Dermatologist): Before anything, book a sit-down with your dermatologist. They’ll give you the 411 on whether PRP is the right move for you.


  • Hydration Station: Load up on that H2O in the days before your appointment, and drink at least 16 ounces of water the morning of and 2 hours before your treatment. Being well-hydrated makes the blood draw part of the process a breeze.
  • Food is Fuel: Don’t skip meals on the day. Grab a bite about an hour before. Trust us, it’ll keep any woozy feelings at bay.
  • Medication Check: Those handy anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen? Press pause on those a week before. They can affect your platelets, playing spoiler to your PRP results.
  • Cheers? Maybe Later: Ease up on the alcohol and caffeine at least 3 days before the procedure.
  • Au Naturel Hair: Keep your locks free from dyes or heavy treatments for about two days pre-PRP.
  • Fresh and Clean: Come in with a product-free, freshly washed scalp. Think of it as a blank canvas for your treatment!


After PRP: The Glow-Up Begins!


  • Easy Does It: For the next couple of days, steer clear of intense workouts or anything that’ll have you breaking a sweat.
  • Sun’s Out? Hat’s On: Keep that treated scalp away from direct sunlight for a day or two.
  • Shampoo Tips: Give it 3 days before you shampoo. And when you do, go gentle and use a Ph balanced shampoo. Your scalp will thank you.
  • Hair TLC: Avoid hair dye or chemical treatments for at least three days after.
  • Hydrate, Again: Yep, keep sipping on that water. It’s great for recovery.
  • Medication Alert: Hold off on the anti-inflammatories (Ibuprofen, Aleeve, Tylenol, Aspirin, etc) for another week post-procedure.
  • Stay Connected: Don’t ghost your dermatologist. Pop in for those follow-ups to track your fab progress.

And there you have it! Your roadmap to rocking PRP. As always, lean on your doc for any specific advice. They’ve got your (hair) back!
