Hair Restoration with PRP and Finasteride

Genesis Lifestyle Medicine offers hair restoration in Nashville because few things can leave a person feeling older and less attractive than thinning hair. If you've been losing your hair, you've likely begun exploring your treatment options. Before committing to any type of treatment, you'll want to first ground yourself in solid information so that you make the right choice. Let's have a look at two popular types of hair restoration: specifically, PRP and a medication called finasteride.

PRP Hair Restoration

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. This is a blood product that is derived from the patient's own blood. Your blood contains platelets that can be used to create a serum. These platelets contain a wealth of growth factors that can help to rapidly repair damaged tissues. Once this serum has been prepared, it is injected into the scalp to encourage hair growth.

If you undergo PRP hair restoration, your provider will withdraw a small amount of blood from your veins. They will then spin the blood in a centrifuge, which helps to separate out and concentrate the contained blood platelets. The resulting product is a PRP serum that can be safely injected into the scalp to help you grow new hair in balding areas.

PRP Results

To obtain the best results, consistency is important. Our PRP hair restoration in Nashville is normally performed once monthly for the first four months or so. After that, maintenance treatment can be given about every three to six months, depending upon the individual.

If PRP works for you, you should begin noticing results within about two to three months. You'll first notice a decrease in hair shedding, followed by some early regrowth and lengthening of your hair.

Finasteride

Finasteride is the generic name for a prescription medication that is widely available under brand names like Propecia. The root cause of male pattern baldness is believed to be due to the accumulation of a hormone called DHT in the scalp.

DHT is a form of testosterone that, as you grow older, can accumulate within hair follicles, gradually miniaturizing them and causing them to produce finer and finer hairs until no hair is produced at all by the affected hair follicle. When enough hair follicles are damaged by DHT, baldness is the result.

Finasteride works by lowering the amount of DHT circulating in your body. As a result, less DHT finds its way into your hair follicles. Although finasteride won't typically regrow all of your hair, it has helped many people significantly thicken their hair.

Finasteride Results

Although finasteride has helped many people regrow some of their hair, it is not considered to be a permanent solution, as going off of the medication will eventually result in all of the gains being lost. Finasteride also has a small percentage chance of causing side effects; as a result, you will be monitored carefully while you are on this medication.

If you respond favorably to finasteride, you'll probably begin noticing results at around the three-month mark. Within six months, most men notice that their hair is stronger and thicker, and hair fall is reduced.
