Totally Valid Reasons to Consider Hair Loss Treatment

Totally Valid Reasons to Consider Hair Loss Treatment

About 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States suffer from a hereditary form of balding called androgenetic alopecia. However, that figure doesn’t account for other sources of hair loss, such as stress, hormonal imbalances, and skin diseases.

If you suffer from hair loss, you may hesitate to seek treatment. Maybe you associate hair replacement with vanity. Or you don’t believe it’s possible to have a full head of hair again.

At Modern Wellness Clinic in Las Vegas, Nevada, we offer hair-loss treatments for both male-pattern baldness and female-pattern baldness. One of our most effective treatments for hair loss starts with an autologous blood donation, which means it’s derived from your own blood.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a serum that we create by taking a small amount of blood from your arm and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate out the healing platelets. Platelets are the part of your blood that helps stop wounds from bleeding and heals injuries by rebuilding tissues.

When one of our medical experts injects PRP directly into your scalp, the serum delivers five times the number of healing platelets that normal blood does. The PRP serum provides your hair’s follicles with growth factors and proteins they need to regenerate their cells and grow strong enough to produce new hair growth.

Only you can decide if you’re ready for hair loss treatments. Following are some of the best reasons why today’s the best time to move toward the new hair growth you desire.

Your hair loss disturbs or depresses you

Nobody enjoys finding clumps of their own hairs in their brush or comb, or on their bathroom floor. You may end each shower with a drain-clogging ball of lost hairs, reminding you of a condition you’d rather forget.

While some men are able to wear their baldness proudly and even augment it by shaving their heads completely, not everyone has the right head shape or personality to pull off the bald look. And few women celebrate hair loss, even if alopecia sufferers such as Jada Pinkett Smith look gorgeous bald or close-cropped.

Deciding to treat hair loss can help you regain your self-confidence. With fuller, healthier hair, you look and feel more youthful and energized. That affects how positively you interact with others and how they perceive you, too. 

Treating sooner saves more hair later

Probably the best reason to start hair loss treatment today — or as soon as possible — is that results are most dramatic and satisfying when you treat an area of your scalp that’s only recently shed its hairs. If you wait for years before starting PRP, some of your scalp follicles may be too damaged to regrow new hairs.

And, of course, as with all aesthetic treatments or any kind of maintenance treatment, ideally you want to get ahead of the problem. By giving your scalp and follicles the nutrients they need to rebuild your lost hairs now, you’re nourishing your entire scalp and keeping it healthy to prevent future hair loss.

You can combine PRP with other therapies

If you’ve waited many years to start your hair loss treatment, don’t worry. You can combine PRP with other hair-loss treatments, including hair transplants, oral medications, and topical treatments. Even taking supplements that are rich in B vitamins at the same time you undergo PRP can help your hair grow back stronger and stay in place longer. 

Talk to us about changing your diet to help stimulate and nourish hair growth. We may recommend effective supplements to support hair growth.

We may also advise hormone replacement therapy (HRT) if your hair loss is a result of hormonal imbalance due to aging, pregnancy, or conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Balanced hormones increase the health of your skin, including the skin of the follicles that grow your hair. 

Hair loss isn’t a trivial or vain matter. If you’re bothered by bald spots or thinning hair, contact our office today for hair loss treatment by calling our friendly staff at 702-463-9159 or using our online booking form.
