Hair loss is an embarrassing problem for men and women alike. It’s a common, early sign of aging, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it. Advancements in medical technology have revolutionized hair restoration and eliminated the need for painful surgery and long recovery times. Kim Nguyen, PA-CA, at Aesthetic Envy and Wellness in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, specializes in hair restoration with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a minimally invasive treatment to regrow hair naturally.

The medical term for age-related hair loss is androgenetic alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia is characterized by hair loss, hair thinning, and baldness. Your age, genetics, and hormones all influence your risk of suffering thinning hair.
Hair loss affects millions of Americans, regardless of gender, but symptoms can differ between men and women. Male-pattern hair loss often begins on the forehead. The hairline recedes in an “M” shape, eventually leading to baldness. Female-pattern hair loss often begins with a widening part and overall thinning of hair on the crown.
Your hair follicles shrink as you get older, due to hormones and genetics. Smaller hair follicles mean thinner hair, and it gradually gets thinner and finer until it stops growing completely.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration is a multi-step treatment that taps into your body’s natural healing ability to regrow thicker, fuller hair.
Kim takes a small sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets. She creates your unique PRP serum, which is packed with natural growth factors to increase blood flow and hair growth.
At Aesthetic Envy and Wellness, the team combines PRP therapy and microneedling to enhance the results of your hair restoration treatment. They use a special microneedling device that creates tiny, controlled wounds in the treatment area and then applies the PRP serum along with it.
The micro-wounds and growth factors in the PRP trigger a cascade effect within the scalp. Blood flow increases and growth factors go to work fighting hair loss by stimulating follicular development and increased hair growth.
If you’re bothered by hair loss, you could benefit from hair restoration. Most people in generally good health are candidates for PRP hair restoration, but the Aesthetic Envy and Wellness team thoroughly reviews your medical history before making a recommendation.
PRP therapy uses elements from your own blood, so the risk of allergic reaction is extremely low. It’s a great option if you’re seeking hair loss treatment, but you don’t want to undergo more invasive restoration procedures.
PRP hair restoration is minimally invasive, so there’s minimal pain and absolutely no downtime. Most people see optimal results with a series of treatments spaced out over several weeks.
You could have a thicker, fuller head of hair with the help of PRP hair restoration. Schedule your hair restoration consultation online or over the phone today.
