Have you been spending more and more time combing your hair in different ways to try to hide thinning or balding areas? For men and women, there are a variety of causes of hair loss. Whether you are experiencing male-pattern hair loss, alopecia, or a problem caused by medication or vitamin deficiency, non-surgical hair restoration is possible today thanks to a treatment that can slow and reverse hair loss. Injecting platelet rich plasma into the scalp has proven highly effective for slowing and reversing hair loss in men and women. When followed by a homecare regimen, this minimally invasive, minimal-downtime treatment, stimulates hair to grow thicker and denser during the next several months, whatever the cause of hair loss.
At Greenwich Medical Spa, we call this treatment the Activator because it literally reactivates hair follicles in your scalp to promote hair growth. Rather than applying platelet rich plasma (PRP) during treatment, we now use the Selphyl System, which isolates platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) from a small sample of your blood. PRFM contains a heightened level of healthy growth factors and proteins extracted by the special Selphyl machine. You can think of PRFM as the next generation of PRP. PRFM sustains growth factor release for seven days, whereas PRP only sustains growth factor release for up to four hours. That is a significant improvement! By injecting PRFM directly into the scalp, these powerful growth factors activate the stem cells that produce hair follicles. Once activated, your hair follicles once again begin to do what they were meant to do – grow more hair more often.
