Baldness or thinning hair is an undesirable side effect aging, but it can happen to adults at any age and any gender due to genetics and lifestyle factors.

Platelet rich plasma therapy is an alternative procedure that stimulates the growth of new hair in males and females that wish for more natural approach. This non-surgical PRP hair restoration offers many benefits because the results are attractive and permanent.
What is PRP therapy?
Hair PRP is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical therapeutic option available to people with hair loss.
Hair restoration provided through a platelet rich plasma implements the natural stem cells and growth factors of a patient. Blood is drawn from the body of the individual so that it can be prepared for the prp hair loss injections.
It is spun in a special machine to physically separate the plasma that will be injected into the areas that are thinning or losing hair. Hair PRP specialist Dr. Marina Yuabova will apply a powerful anesthetic cream to the scalp so that prp hair treatment injections do not cause any unnecessary discomfort.
PRP hair restoration results are evaluated after 4 months have passed from the initial treatment date, but it’s often recommended to schedule a session every 4 weeks for the best results. After the 4 initial sessions of PRP therapy, the specialist can recommend a long-term maintenance plan.At the Integrative Wellness NY the PRP hair loss therapy restoration procedure is performed by a certified medical professional, PRP hair loss specialist in a clinical setting.
What Causes Hair Loss?Recent studies conducted internationally by expert doctors for hair loss and are published on pubmed, recognize PRP therapy as one of the promising treatment modality for hair growth restoration and promotion. The evidence in the studies “Platelet-Rich Plasma as a Treatment for Androgenetic Alopecia” supports that the growth factors contained in a PRP are responsible to help to stimulate hair follicle growth.
Hair loss has always been considered a male problem; however, statistics show that women are also likely to lose their hair as they age. The majority of women who lose their hair notice it in their 50s, but it might happen at any age and is affected by different reasons.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it is normal for women to lose approximately 50–100 strands of hair each day. These old shedding hairs are usually replaced with the new ones. If you notice that your hairbrush and your shower has more shed hair than it used to, you might need to investigate what is causing you to lose hair.
The causes of hair loss are different, and the most common ones are listed below:
- Unbalanced diet
- Physical or emotional stress
- Hormonal imbalances
- Absence of proper hair care
- Autoimmune disorders
How Does PRP Therapy Treat Hair Loss?
