What to Do About Thinning Hair

Nothing is more distressing than seeing more and more of your scalp peeking through the strands of hair on your head. Though hair thinning is a common problem that affects millions of people, there are many things you can do about it. 

At Montclair Rejuvenation Center in Verona, New Jersey, Dr. Kelly Distefano and our team of experienced aestheticians offer an effective, non-surgical treatment for thinning hair: PRP hair restoration.   

About your thinning hair

Hair grows in cycles and it’s normal to shed 100 or more strands of hair a day. However, you may shed more hair than normal during periods of stress or illness. 

Excessive hair shedding may cause thinning hair, but this is temporary and your hair should regain its fullness within six months, says the American Academy of Dermatology

Hair shedding and hair loss aren’t the same thing. Thinning hair from hair loss occurs when your hair stops growing altogether. In most cases, this is an inherited condition, though hair loss may also occur from other medical conditions or their treatments.

Unlike excessive hair shedding, hair thinning from hair loss won’t get better on its own. There are many effective treatments for hair loss. Because we’re always looking for a solution that provides amazing and natural results, we use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to treat thinning hair.

PRP for thinning hair

When you’re wondering what to do about thinning hair, you may find it hard to believe that your body has the solution. PRP is made from a sample of your own blood and contains high levels of your body’s natural regenerative and healing properties, including platelets, specialized protein and natural growth factors. 

When injected into the areas of your scalp where your hair is thinning, the healing properties from the PRP reactivate hair growth. They also support hair follicle health and the growth of thick hair shafts that improve hair health and strength. 

In addition to hair restoration, we also use PRP for facial rejuvenation, combining the regenerative treatment with microneedling

What to expect from hair thinning treatments

Our hair restoration treatments provide natural results, but it won’t work overnight. It may take about three months until you see the results.

We create customized treatment plans specific to your hair thinning needs. Most patients only need three treatments set at one month intervals to get results. Then, we may recommend maintenance treatments every six months.

Our hair thinning treatments work best in people with more recent hair loss. It’s harder to reactivate growth in hair follicles that have been dormant for a long time.

When it comes to hair thinning, don’t waste too much time thinking about what to do. Let us help you get back your full, healthy head of hair with our natural hair restoration treatment. Call our office or book an appointment online today.
