Good news is here for millions of men and women suffering from hair loss thanks to an innovative treatment using platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your very own blood. As seen on The Doctors, The Dr. Oz Show and ABC; the latest breakthrough in thin hair treatment using a person’s own blood and trademarked the Studio Scalp Hair Growth Procedure is offered by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Wigoda.
“The Studio Scalp Hair Growth Procedure is a natural and organic way of using a patient’s own blood to naturally stimulate hair growth,” said Dr. Wigoda. “My Fort Lauderdale-based plastic and reconstructive surgery center also offers non-surgical services such as PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) procedures, a new technique that uses a patient’s blood platelets to stimulate new cellular growth while also restoring and rejuvenating the areas treated including facial, sexual wellness and hair loss.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Disease, genetics, stress and hormonal imbalance are the main culprits, but others include:
- Styling hair products that can cause breakage
- Ponytail or braided hair styles that pull the hair
- Too much or excessive shampooing, combing or brushing hair
- Thyroid disease
- Childbirth, major surgery, a high fever or severe infection or even the flu
- Lack of protein or iron in the diet, and especially eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia
- Prescription drugs for heart, depression, gout and even birth control pills
- Ringworm (on the scalp), a contagious fungal infection mostly with children
- Cancer treatments such as radiation therapy and chemo
- Alopecia areata, a hair loss that can happen at any age where hair falls out in round patches.
The Emotional and Psychosocial Impact of Hair Loss
Hair loss can cause a devastating emotions that can negatively impact the quality of life in both men and women. Studies on its psychosocial impact show that:
- Hair loss negatively impacts self-esteem, body image, and self-confidence.
- Hair loss leads to depression, lowered self-image, and declines in enjoyable activities and social engagement.
- Women are more negatively impacted by hair loss compared to men due to societal pressure to be attractive.
Hair Loss Hope: Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Regeneration
Dr. Wigoda implements Studio PRP’s innovative, regenerative medical therapies and techniques using platelet rich plasma. Through new technology, he offers this permanent, effective and organic solution to hair loss. Once it is injected into the scalp, PRP therapy stimulates growth in dormant hair follicles as well as in existing ones. PRP then penetrates the dermis, which leads to increased blood flow and the resulting hair growth.
This non-surgical hair regrowth strategy is a safe and effective way to restore hair loss using platelet rich plasma. The groundbreaking procedure injects PRP into the scalp, which encourages hair growth. The PRP addresses both male and female pattern hair loss.
How the Hair Regrowth Procedure Works
A blood sample is obtained and processed to create the PRP.
A local anesthetic is then administered to numb the scalp area that will be treated.
PRP is then combined and administered via injections either over the full scalp or in a localized treatment form.
After the Studio Scalp Procedure
The recovery from the procedure is typically simple, as the resulting pain is easily managed through medication like ibuprofen. Some mild forehead swelling may occur one or two days after the injections. This completely normal reaction usually resolves within two days after the procedure.
Patients are free to wash their hair twelve hours after the procedure and there are no noticeable effects or downtime required as a part of recovery.
New hair growth will likely occur in about two months post-procedure and become more evident in four to eight months. This growth will continue up to a year after the treatment, allowing the results to remain for up to two years without additional treatments.
