Hair loss is common in both men and women as they age. The most common form of hair loss are male and female patternbalding usually due to hormonal and genetic influences.
In men, they present with a receding hairline and loss of hair on the crown of the scalp. In women, they present as overall thinning of hair over the entire scalp.
Management involves amulti-factorial approach for optimal results. Prescription medications, vitamins, and hair stimulating topical lotions and shampoos often help. Platelet rich plasma (PRP)injections also play a significant role in hair restoration. PRP involves drawing your blood and separating the platelets and injecting them into the scalp. The injections trigger natural hair growth by increasing blood supply to the hair follicles.
