Am I experiencing hair thinning and loss?

Hair thinning and loss can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from genetics to lifestyle choices. If you are worried that your hair is thinning or receding, it’s critical that you consult with an experienced provider to decide the underlying cause. There are treatments available for hair loss, but it is critical to start them early in order to maximize success. Here are just some of the common signs of hair thinning and loss:

  • Excessive shedding: If you’re noticing more hair in your brush than usual, or strands coming out when you shampoo, this could be a sign of thinning.
  • Receding hairline: A receding hairline is often one of the first signs of male pattern baldness. If you notice your hairline gradually receding, consult with a doctor.
  • Thinning crown: If you notice that your hair is thinning at the crown of your head, this could be a sign of female pattern baldness.
  • Widening part: Another common sign of hair loss is a widening part. If you used to have a small part and now it is much wider, this could indicate hair loss.

Platelet rich plasma injection procedure. Dr. Bertha Baum of Hallandale and Boca Raton, FL, is a dermatologist who can assist patients in these communities with medical and cosmetic dermatology needs. This includes her training and expertise in specific treatment options such as PRP, or “platelet-rich plasma” injections.

What is PRP, and how is PRP used at Aventura Dermatology?

PRP is a specialized procedure that is designed to use the body’s own blood and platelet-rich plasma to rejuvenate the face, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and even help restore hair loss and thinning. A sample of the patient’s blood is taken at the beginning of the appointment and then placed in a spinning centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the elements in the blood. The PRP is then taken and reinjected into the skin to stimulate the natural healing process, restoring youthful skin or missing hair.

How many treatments will I need to achieve the desired results?

Most patients see optimal results after 2-3 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. However, some may require additional treatments to achieve their desired results.

What can I expect after the treatment?

There is no downtime required after the PRP treatment, and most patients report only minimal discomfort during the injection process. Some redness or swelling may be present immediately following the procedure, but this typically dissipates within 24 hours on its own. Patients are typically able to resume all their normal activities and skincare routines immediately following their appointment.

Is there anyone who should not receive PRP injections?

PRP injections are considered safe for most patients, but as with any medical procedure, there are always some risks involved. It is vital that you speak to a professional such as Dr. Bertha Baum of Aventura Dermatology to discuss the pros and cons of this and other cosmetic and medical dermatology treatments available at her office.
