Dean Wellness Offers PRP for Hair Loss
Dr. Melissa Dean ofDean Wellness Institute is pleased to offer PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for thinning hair or hair loss. Platelets are a component of blood and are considered some of the body’s “first responders” that arrive to stop the bleeding and promote healing. To produce PRP, a patient’s own blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to separate the components of the blood. The platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, contains growth factors to assist in the regenerative process. “This process uses the body’s own ability to regenerate hair by using your own PRP,” says Dr. Dean. Hair regrowth can take from three to six months. Treatments are done in a series of 3 sessions, typically 6 weeks apart.
“Hair loss and thinning can have a variety of causes including nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, heredity, mineral imbalance, stress, side effects from medication, and buildup of toxins,” says Dr. Dean. “We check hormone and nutritional levels as well when we do this therapy. Then we can incorporate nutritional IV’s and/or hormone balancing to maximize results.”
