It might sound like a lot, but we naturally lose between 50-100 hairs from our head each day. Losing that small amount isn’t really an issue. The problem is when you notice large amounts of hair on your clothing or in your brush. That could be a sign of hair loss.Several things can lead to hair loss. Thankfully, regenerative medicine techniques at Lipogenex Anti-Aging Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, reverse hair loss in its tracks. As a skilled hair restoration specialist, Dr. Emmanouil Karampahtsis offers innovative treatments like stem cell growth factors and platelet-rich plasma therapy to restore your thick and luxurious mane of hair.

Understanding hair loss

You can lose your hair for several reasons. For most men and women, it’s because of androgenetic alopecia, also known as male or female-pattern baldness. Some people think mothers are to blame for thinning hair, but that’s not true. This hereditary condition develops from the genes you get from both your parents.

Approximately 80 million Americans have androgenetic alopecia, including 40% of women and 50% of men. This genetic disorder weakens your hair follicles, causing them to shrink and produce finer and shorter shafts of hair over time until hair growth stops completely.

Other causes of hair loss include:

  • Tight hairstyles and treatments, like perms or hot oil
  • Physical or emotional stress
  • Hormonal changes
  • Medical conditions
  • Certain medications and supplements
  • Cancer treatments

Anyone with thinning hair, loss of volume, or bald patches can expect great results with regenerative medicine treatments, especially if you have early signs of hair loss. However, if you have an existing condition that causes hair loss, like lupus or thyroid disease, you might not see effective results with stem cell growth factors therapy or PRP, unless you treat the underlying cause.

Regenerative medicine for hair loss

Men and women spend approximately $3.5 billion each year on hair loss treatments. While many methods don’t work, new advancements in regenerative medicine can provide results for almost everyone.

Regenerative medicine focuses on restoring the health and function in damaged tissue by activating the natural healing properties in your body. Two common regenerative medicine methods for triggering this process include stem cell growth factor treatments and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

When you have stem cell growth factor therapy for hair loss, Dr. Karampahtsis uses specialized cells found throughout your body, or in donor material, that trigger cell regeneration. With PRP, he uses the vital growth factors found in your blood that play a role in the healing process. During your procedure, Dr. Karampahtsis injects concentrated amounts of these substances into your scalp. Once in place, they stimulate blood flow to your follicles and reactivate hair growth. The entire process takes less than an hour and there’s no downtime.

After having regenerative hair loss treatments, you usually start seeing results in a few months as the healing process gets underway. For best results, Dr. Karampahtsis typically recommends a series of treatments, often three sessions over a four to six month period. Keep in mind, he customizes each hair restoration plan on a case-by-case basis based on how you respond to your treatments and the extent of your hair loss.
