PRP and Stem Cell Therapy: Your Natural Solution to Hair Loss

Visual appearance makes up a large portion of your first impression. If your hair is thinning or you’ve gone bald, it can be hard to show the world what you’re made of. Imagine breezing through the doors at a new job, walking over to your Friday night date, or showing up at the next family gathering with the confidence that comes with a thick, full head of hair. Now that dream can be a reality with our advanced hair restoration methods. 

Dr. Emmanouil Karampahtsis at the Lipogenex Anti-Aging Center specializes in giving you the look you want from head to toe. He’s proud to offer PRP and stem cell growth factor therapy as a key part of your hair restoration

Why is your hair thinning or balding?

There are many reasons why your hair is falling out and not as full as it used to be. While hair loss doesn’t discriminate against gender, it looks a little different in both men and women. 

For example, androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, makes up 95% of hair loss in men but can also affect women. Women typically experience hair loss as a result of hormonal imbalances typically caused by pregnancy, childbirth, birth control, and menopause. Severe swings in hormones disrupt your hair’s normal growth and development process. 

Both men and women, however, can see hair loss after taking certain medications or going through chemotherapy. These harsh treatments attack hair in its earliest stages of growth, making it fall out early or stop short of its fullest maturity. 

Regardless of your gender or the root cause of your hair loss, Dr. Karampahtsis and his team have the perfect solution. 

What is PRP?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Platelets are small cells full of growth and healing factors found in high concentrations in your blood. One small blood sample holds "high-octane" healing and regeneration power. 

To get this powerful solution, your blood sample is placed in a device called a centrifuge, which spins your blood so fast that it separates the platelets from the rest of your blood. Dr. Karampahtsis then extracts the platelets and prepares them for injection.

What are stem cell growth factors?

Stem cells are a very unique kind of cell. They’re different from other cells because they can divide and renew themselves over and over again. Most cells, for example, skin cells, develop, perform their duties, and eventually die without regenerating. 

Stem cells can morph themselves into specialized cells to replace dead or damaged cells and support your body’s functions. Stem cell growth factors are proetin molecules that are derived from stem cells. They may times produce a cascade of events that produce healing and regeneration of the tissue that receives the treatment.

PRP and stem cell growth factor therapy for hair loss

While they sound like advanced science experiments, the way these two therapies restore your hair is actually quite simple. 

PRP therapy targets those damaged hair follicles and dead hair cells, stimulating them to restart the hair growth process. Because this treatment came directly from your own body, the chances of you rejecting it are almost none. 

Stem cell growth factor therapy inserts growth factors into your dysfunctional follicles. Those growth factors stimulate the the cells of your follicles to start working properly again. 

What’s best about these two therapies is that virtually anyone can get them, though you may need a few treatments and maintenance appointments depending on the severity of your hair loss. 

Results aren’t immediate, but over the course of a few months, you’ll see more growth and longer and stronger hair. Neither PRP nor stem cell growth factor therapy is invasive, painful, or unnatural. You can be sure that you’re getting chemical-free, effective treatment with no downtime.
