As you get older, your hair may start to thin and you may notice bald patches appearing on your scalp. In addition to these problems, your hairline could begin to recede. At Rejuvené MD in El Paso, Texas, we can use PRP therapy, Theradome, and other hair restoration treatments to correct your bald spots and restore your hair.
How Does Hair Restoration Work?
Stress, hormonal imbalances, and other health issues can cause the appearance of your hair to change over time. In addition, your family history may increase your risk of developing hair issues as you get older. We can use several different methods to correct your bald spots and restore your hair. Each of our natural hair restoration treatments uses a unique method to improve the quantity and quality of your hair.
Theradome is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser energy to improve your hair growth. During your treatment, you will wear a specialized Theradome helmet on your head. This helmet will send laser energy into your body. This energy will enter the cells at the base of your hair follicles.
As it enters your hair follicles, this energy will stimulate the mitochondria in these cells. This process will encourage your body to regrow your hair.
PRP therapy uses growth factors in your blood to restore your hair. During a PRP therapy treatment, we will draw a sample of your blood from your body. We will use your blood to create a powerful yellow substance called platelet-rich plasma. After we prepare this substance, we will apply this product to areas where you have developed thinning hair or bald spots.
The PRP substance will improve your body’s ability to grow new hair. After we apply this substance to your scalp, the condition of your hair follicles will improve and you will begin to grow thicker, healthier hair.
We can also use supplements to improve the condition of your hair. Nutrafol supplements contain natural and botanical ingredients that can help you regrow your hair. Hormonal imbalances, stress, nutrient deficiencies, and other factors will cause your hair to become thinner. We will work with you to select Nutrafol products that can be used to correct these problems.
For example, some of the products in the Nutrafol line contain ingredients that can balance hormones. In addition, these supplements include ingredients that can decrease inflammation and stress.
Which Hair Restoration Treatment Is Best for Me?
To determine which treatment is best for you, you’ll need to schedule a consultation at our office in El Paso.
Analyzing Your Hair
We will begin your consultation by taking a look at your hair and talking about the problems that you’ve been experiencing. You should be prepared to discuss your symptoms and tell us when you started to lose your hair. In addition, you should tell us about any health problems that you have, any stressful events or life changes that could be affecting your hair, and any supplements or medications that you are taking.
This discussion will help us diagnose the cause of your hair loss. For example, if you recently completed a stressful work project, your anxiety may be causing your hair to become thinner. Alternatively, if you are going through menopause, your hormones could be causing you to develop thinning hair.
Selecting a Treatment
After we have reviewed your health, we will recommend a suitable hair treatment for you. In addition to considering the cause of your hair loss, we will also take your preferences into account during the recommendation process. For example, if you are afraid of needles, we may advise you to use Theradome instead of PRP therapy.
What Will Happen During My Treatment?
All of our hair treatments use minimally invasive or non-invasive techniques to improve your hair. As a result, you will feel relaxed and comfortable during your treatment sessions.
If you use Theradome to improve your hair, you will put a specialized helmet onto your head. This helmet has a speaker that will give you periodic updates about your treatment session.
You’ll wear this helmet for the next 20 minutes. Although you might feel a gentle tingling sensation as the helmet sends energy into your scalp, this is a very gentle process. In fact, you can read a book, listen to music, or simply sit back and relax while the helmet improves your hair.
Like Theradome, PRP therapy is a very gentle way to improve your hair. We will begin this hair treatment by drawing a small amount of blood from your body. Drawing blood is a very straightforward process, and this part of your PRP therapy will not take very long to finish. Once we have collected a sample of your blood, we will use a special device to spin this sample very rapidly.
Spinning your blood will allow us to isolate growth factors from the other substances in this sample. After we have prepared your PRP solution, we will administer this substance to your scalp. This treatment doesn’t have any downtime, and you’ll be able to go back to your workplace or other destination once we have finished applying this substance to your treatment area.
If you decide to use products in the Nutrafol line to improve your hair, we will recommend specific supplements for you. For example, if you are experiencing hair loss during menopause, we may advise you to take the Nutrafol Women’s Balance product. This product uses natural ingredients to address stress, metabolism changes, and other issues that could be negatively affecting your hair.
We will give you detailed instructions about how to take your supplement. For example, we may instruct you to take a certain number of pills every night. Aside from taking your pills, you shouldn’t need to make any major adjustments to your daily routine.
How Quickly Will My Treatment Improve My Hair?
All of these treatments work very quickly, and you are likely to see improvements in your hair within a couple of months. That said, it’s important to understand that your individual response to these hair treatments will vary. In particular, your health, the condition of your hair, and other factors can influence your results.
During the first four to 18 weeks of your treatment plan, your hair loss should begin to slow down. During the next 18 to 26 weeks, your existing hair will start to become thicker and more attractive. During the next 26 to 52 weeks, your hair growth will begin to improve.
Typically, PRP therapy will begin to improve your hair after about four months. You will usually achieve better results if you get several PRP treatments and live a healthy lifestyle during your treatment.
During the initial months of your treatment, the ingredients in these products should start to improve the problems that are causing you to experience hair loss. You are likely to notice improvements in your hair growth within about three to six months.
Do These Treatments Really Work?
Since your body is unique, the results of your chosen treatment will vary. However, there is evidence showing that all of our treatments can improve hair growth.
During a clinical study, 98% of people who used the Theradome device experienced hair growth within 24 weeks. In addition, the density of these people’s hair increased by an average of 37%.
Several studies have shown that PRP treatments can improve the condition of people’s hair. During one study, people who received three PRP treatments developed thicker hair. In addition, people in another study developed thicker and stronger hair.
During a six-month study, 80% of women who took Nutrafol supplements experienced improved hair growth. In addition, 73% of these women had improved hair growth rates, and 80% developed thicker hair. Many women also said that they felt less anxious and stressed after they had been taking these products for six months.
Who Is a Good Candidate for These Treatments?
Since our treatments can address a wide variety of hair problems, you are likely to be a good candidate for one of our hair loss solutions. That said, you will need to meet certain requirements to use each of these hair treatments.
Theradome is very good at addressing the beginning stages of hair loss. If you have recently started to lose your hair, you will probably benefit from using this device. That said, we do not recommend using this product if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. In addition, you should talk to your primary care doctor before using this treatment if you are experiencing hair loss in connection with anemia, thyroid disease, or other health issues.
Although PRP therapy can be a great way to treat male and female pattern baldness, you might not be able to use this treatment if you have a major health condition or bleeding disorder.
If changing hormones, stress, anxiety, and other issues are causing you to experience hair loss, you should consider using Nutrafol products to correct this issue. However, you will need to be over 18 to take these products.
In addition, we do not advise taking Nutrafol products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Further, you should talk to your doctor before taking these supplements if you are using blood-thinning medications or are suffering from health problems.
Can I Use Other Methods to Improve My Hair Loss?
In addition to the methods described above, we can use probiotics to improve your hair issues. Probiotics are tiny microorganisms that are used to address many different health conditions. For example, probiotics can improve gut health.
Probiotics can also be used to destroy pathogens that could damage your blood. Destroying these pathogens may improve the condition of your blood vessels and enhance the quality of your hair.
Can I Combine Multiple Hair Restoration Treatments?
Sometimes, combining multiple prp hair restoration treatments will provide you with more dramatic improvements in your hair. For example, we might instruct you to take supplements while you use Theradome to send laser energy into your scalp. We can provide you with more information about combining different hair treatments during your initial consultation.
