Hair Loss

What Can Be Done To Treat Hair Loss Or Hair Thinning?

First your doctor or primary care provider should rule out diseases or conditions that may be causing hair loss such as thyroid problems, hormonal imbalances or vitamin deficiencies.  If you do not have a doctor, a NuReveal Doctor or Nurse Practitioner will be able to examine you and order appropriate lab testing prior to beginning hair loss treatments.

How Does It Work?

thinning-hair2PRP (platelet-rich plasma) restoration therapy is used to obtain natural looking results.  Blood is drawn from the patient and then processed in order to separate the PRP from other blood components.  PRP is then injected into the scalp with a thin needle in order to stimulate hair growth.  This treatment is suitable for both men and women.

What Are The Benefits?

  • Minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure.
  • Short recovery period.
  • Minoxidil products may be used in conjunction if you are already using them but not necessary.

When Are Results Noticeable?

Since PRP therapy uses your own plasma to stimulate inactive follicles, results will vary on an individual basis.

How Long Do The Results Last?

Individual results will vary as 50-100 hairs normally fall out per day.  The normal amount of hair loss is rarely noticeable because new hairs are growing at the same time.  PRP therapy may restore your normal hair cycle.  Treatments are typically repeated every 2-4 weeks.

Is The Procedure Painful?

PRP is injected into the scalp with a very thin needle.  A topical anesthetic may be applied if the area of hair loss/thinning is patchy but cannot be applied to the entire scalp.

How Much Does The Procedure Cost?

Cost depends on the extent of the hair loss and the extent of the area being treated.  Click here to compare pricing and results.  Your NuReveal clinician will recommend an individualized treatment plan designed to help you achieve your desired results.
