In order to treat Hair Loss dermatologists have been using a number of different methods including Laser Devices, Prescription and Non-Prescription medications, and procedures such as Hair transplant or scalp reduction.
A new more modern method of hair restoration has gained popularity recently amongst dermatologists across the world; PRP hair restoration. PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, uses the injection of the body’s own plasma into the sites of hair loss, stimulating hair follicles to grow thicker, and faster; in sites where the previous follicles would not grow at all.
After your dermatologist understands the issue, through careful examination, they can properly diagnose and recommend a proper course of treatment.
