DIAGNOSING HAIR LOSS IN VILLANOVA AND COLLEGEVILLE
Determining the cause of your hair loss is an important part of providing the most effective hair re-growth procedures. If you have experienced thinning and balding due to certain medications, our dermatologists may recommend you re-visit your prescriptions with your primary care physician. Hair loss caused by pregnancy, aging, and genetics can be evaluated by our skin care team to detect the pattern of hair loss (if any) and decide on the best areas for treatment.
Your personal consultation at Bryn Mawr Dermatology is an important part of the treatment experience. We believe in treating each patient with meticulous care and recommending procedures that meet your expectations without inconveniencing your schedule. Your confidence, wellness, and safety are extremely important to our staff.
COSMETIC DERMATOLOGY FOR THINNING HAIR AND BALDING
Bryn Mawr Dermatology offers non-surgical cosmetic dermatology to help patients put their best selves forward. To stall hair loss and promote the growth of dense, healthy hair, we provide Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) scalp injections in Villanova and Collegeville.
Platelet rich plasma hair restoration is a highly recommended procedure for both men and women. The growth factors produced by the PRP are vital for allowing your body to jumpstart the hair growth process – without chemicals or prescription drugs. The plasma used in the procedure is processed from blood draws taken in office.
Our staff then spins the blood sample in a centrifuge, which helps separate plasma from other matter.
This PRP solution is then injected into the scalp. The injections stimulate the development of new blood vessels which promotes hair growth by increasing follicle count and vitality. Treatment is well tolerated, especially with the application of a topical numbing cream, and is minimally invasive, so patients don’t take too much time out of their busy schedules to achieve their desired results. Our dermatologists typically recommend three treatment sessions, after which patients report a thicker, fuller head of hair. Annual maintenance is required to keep up with hormone changes.
Patients often seek out PRP injections to boost hair growth after being frustrated with topical products but being hesitant to pursue invasive surgery or oral medications that have potential negative side effects. PRP injections are a popular and effective middle ground for all of the following reasons and more:
Benefits of PRP Treatments
A blood draw and several injections are required during the treatment process; however, there are no incisions made, and patients do not need to spend time recovering from their appointment.
You never know when you purchase medication for hair growth how your body will respond or what you can expect. This creates a wait-and-see period where you may not achieve the hair growth you want and are stuck searching for a new solution. PRP, on the other hand, allows your body to heal itself and restore thicker hair in balding areas. Treatment is effective at restoring the appearance of fuller hair. For some patients, PRP works best in combination with oral medication for hair loss as prescribed by our dermatologists.
Topical or over-the-counter products usually need to be taken or applied on a daily basis. Inconsistent use creates inconsistent results, which is frustrating. PRP works with your body’s natural hair growth processes, so you don’t have to spend extra time applying products or medications that create a fuller head of hair.
Some treatments are only recommended to treat the crown of the scalp, and some only recommended to treat the temples or hairline. PRP can be applied to any area of thinning hair to encourage improved growth and is a fine-tuned procedure allowing pinpoint accuracy in its application.
