Hair loss can affect anyone—a man or a woman, young or old. But you don’t have to live with thinning hair or baldness any longer. With Hair restoration at Athré Facial Aesthetics, you can not only rejuvenate your hair, but your confidence as well.
It’s not talked about much, but women experience hair loss and baldness just like men do. Females actually make up a significant portion of hair-loss sufferers in the U.S. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, a whopping 40 percent of women have a noticeable loss in hair by age 40.
No doubt you’ve seen the commercials for the latest and greatest solution to all of your hair-loss problems. From the creams, shampoos, sprays, and pills that will miraculously return your hair to all its former glory, to the plugs, implants, attachments, toupees, and wigs that fill in and cover up a balding scalp, chances are you’ve thought about trying one or more of them in an effort to curtail your hair loss. But it’s pretty obvious that many of these so-called remedies don’t really do anything to address hair loss at all.
Fortunately, the days of those frivolous hair treatments are behind us. With the advancement of restoration techniques, you can achieve real results that are natural.
But there’s a new trend in hair restoration that uses platelet-rich plasma. Commonly referred to as PRP, this substance is a concentrated form of your own plasma that’s packed with beneficial platelets, which are vital to your body’s natural wound-healing process. These platelets contain growth factors that have been shown to stimulate tissue regeneration and repair. Treatments with PRP can work to enhance the thickness, boost the growing environment for thinning hair, and improve the overall health of your hair. Hair restoration with PRP can help to fight pattern baldness, scalp baldness, spot baldness, as well as fine or reduced hairs of the eyebrows or beard.
These restorative approaches are performed as in-office procedures that only require mild sedation. The surgeries are so tolerable that patients can go back to work or their regular routine the next day if they so choose. Within a few months, you’ll start to notice your own hair growing on its own. This process can be very rewarding for those who haven’t had success with other forms of hair restoration.
The first step to restoring your hair is a personal consultation with Dr. Athré. During this one-on-one session, you will discuss your needs and goals for hair restoration. Dr. Athré will carefully evaluate the current condition of your hair and then will present you with a tailored plan to best address your unique situation: either a medical, non-surgical approach, a surgical remedy, or a combination of the two. Keep in mind that no matter which method you choose, the hair restoration process can take some time.
