Cutting Edge Medical Procedure Provides New Hope for Alopecia Patients

prp hair lossSeptember is National Alopecia Areata Awareness Month! Alopecia areata involves hair loss in one or more round spots on the scalp and typically begins as small bald patches.

The hair tends to fall out over a short period of time, with the loss commonly occurring more on one side of the scalp than the other.

Individuals who develop alopecia have been resigned to come to terms with the hair loss as the condition has been considered virtually irreversible…until now.

Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration (PRP) is providing new hope for hair growth in patients with this disease which often leaves individuals desperately trying to hide the condition by wearing wigs or shaving the head completely.

Stephanie Anderson, Trichologist and Hair Replacement Specialist of San Antonio’s Trinity Lace Wigs & Unisex Salon explains the medically supervised procedure and what it means for individuals with alopecia, “What an exciting time this is for us here at Trinity Lace Wigs & Unisex Salon because of the PRP procedure.

For some time now I have provided various treatments like low level laser therapy, intensive hair loss and damaged hair and scalp therapies for our clientele.

Even with the effectiveness of these procedures it can take anywhere from about six months to a year before there is a possibility that hair growth may be seen.

With the new PRP procedure, we take stems cells from one part of the body and transplant them directly in the hair follicles where those cells may be dormant or aren’t producing hair anymore.

These stem cell implants then become hair cells which promotes new hair growth. With this new procedure clients are going to see results in as little as three months or less.” The procedure only takes about thirty minutes to complete, is painless and does not involve a scalpel like traditional hair implant procedures.

Trinity Lace Wigs & Unisex Salon in cooperation with Skin Specialists of Dallas is the ONLY facility in Texas providing this incredible hair restoration process to clients suffering hair loss due to alopecia areata.
