PRP: The New Solution For Hair Loss

Tens of millions of men and women in the U.S. experience hair loss, which can be a real hit to one’s self-confidence. There is hope, however, in the form of platelet-rich plasma therapy, which can provide effective treatment.

Originated in Europe more than a decade ago, this technology has been utilized in a variety of medical areas, including dentistry and orthopedics. The procedure involves placing blood drawn from the patient into a special machine that separates red blood cells from plasma, which is rich in platelets that contain growth factors.

In PRP hair loss treatment, the plasma is injected directly into the patient’s hair follies. This procedure takes no more than ten minutes and involves only minimal discomfort. It’s so quick and painless that patients typically don’t require any local sedation to the injection site and zero downtime for healing post-procedure.

Within the first few months of treatments, which are repeated once a month for the next three months, and then once every three to six months after that, patients may notice they are losing less or minimal amounts of hair. After six months, patients should begin to see an increase in thickness and eventually regrowth of hair.

Five Tips To Strengthen Weak Hair

Would you believe that it’s normal to lose 100 to 150 strands of hair each day? To put that number into perspective, most of us have 100,000 hairs on our head, so this loss isn’t significant overall. When a hair is lost, a new one grows back in its place. That is, until middle age, when hair regrowth slows down or stops.

In addition to everyday hair loss, many of us struggle with weak hair. Weak hair can take on many forms, like split ends, extreme dryness, or excessive oiliness. Broken and brittle ends indicate that your hair has been damaged from heat, friction, or the wrong hair products. While some breakage is normal, excessive breakage indicates weakened hair.

Strive for stronger, healthier hair by following these simple tips.

  1. Be sure to use the right hair care products to avoid further damage to weakened hair.
  2. Strictly limit the number of chemicals (coloring, bleaching, straightening) used on weak hair.
  3. Avoid blow-dryers, hot curlers, curling irons, and flat irons on weak and broken hair.
  4. Less washing is better for weak hair. Hair should be washed no more than two times per week, especially if it’s chemically relaxed.
  5. Too much friction is a bad thing. Avoid rubbing your hair with a towel after washing, cotton pillowcases, and hats, which can further weaken hair due to rubbing and moisture loss.

Say goodbye to weak hair when you follow these healthy hair care tips to restore the sleekness and shine to your locks. For the day when everyday hair loss turns to thin hair due to aging, PRP treatment for hair loss, one of the newest technological innovations in the hair restoration industry, can help to restore your hair to its beautiful, healthy state.

Promote Health Hair With These Five Foods

Healthy hair starts from the inside out. Whether you’ve got a full head of hair, or your starting to bald or thin with the possibility of laser hair loss therapy in your future, eating a diet rich in the right foods can help give you silky, smooth, and stronger hair. Don’t be fooled by the many shampoos and conditioners that claim to give your hair all the care it needs. Many products from nature contain nutrients that maintain the health and vitality of your hair. Try adding some of these foods to your diet to encourage healthy, strong hair.

  1. Salmon – Omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon are essential for the growth and maintenance of your hair. Our body doesn’t make these healthy fats, so you need to take them in through food or supplements.
  1. Greek Yogurt – Packed with protein and vitamin B5, Greek yogurt is a superfood and one of the most important macro-nutrients we can eat. It promotes accelerated growth and helps hair grow thicker and stronger.
  1. Leafy Greens – Pack in vitamin A, beta-carotene, and vitamin C when you eat your greens. Together, these nutrients make your hair smooth and silky. As opposed to promoting hair growth, spinach, kale, and all green leafy vegetables focus on scalp health. A healthy scalp equals a healthy mane.
  1. Eggs – Protein is key to healthy hair, so eggs are the perfect vital energy source. Eggs are rich in biotin, a crucial B vitamin, which promotes hair growth.
  1. Oysters – A lack of zinc is directly correlated with hair loss. One or two portions per week of oysters can do magic for your hair.

A healthy diet packed with the essential vitamins and nutrients your hair craves in order to grow healthy and strong will help your hair look its best. Bon appetite!


Are Stress and Hair Loss Related?

When you are under a great deal of stress or anxiety, do you feel the urge to pull your hair out figuratively? So why does it seem like when we are under pressure at work, home, or from our kids, that we notice hair falling out? Is the stress actually making it fall out? The answer may surprise you.

While we know that most forms of hair loss are passed on to us through our genes, stress, and anxiety are additional causes of hair loss. Not only do stress and anxiety play a role in hair loss, but they are linked to three conditions that can trigger you to lose hair.

Telogen Effluvium – Stress can push hair follicles into a resting phase so that they don’t produce new hair strands. Within a few months, affected hairs will start falling out suddenly when combing or washing.

Trichotillomania – This psychological condition is an irresistible urge to pull out hair from your scalp, eyebrows, or other areas of your body as a way dealing with stress, tension, loneliness, boredom, or frustration.

Alopecia Areata – In this condition, your body’s immune system attacks your hair follicles, causing hair loss.

Hair loss due to stress does not have to be permanent. If your hair loss is triggered by stress, managing your stress could be the key to regrowth. If through stress management, diet, and nutrients you don’t see improvements then it’s possible your hair loss isn’t stress related, and you could benefit from laser hair loss therapy. Contact Hans Wiemann to learn more about how laser hair loss therapy treatment can help you.

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment: Everything You Need To Know

Have you heard of the highly successful platelet rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration procedure that’s transforming the hair of men and women everywhere? We’ll explain exactly what it is and how it can reverse hair loss while stimulating new hair growth.

What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet rich plasma treatment involves using one’s blood to regenerate hair growth. Plasma is a component of blood that contains platelets and white blood cells, which are rich in growth factors and can support new cell growth.

How PRP Works
First, a sample of blood is drawn and put into a centrifuge, which spins rapidly to separate the blood into multiple layers. The doctor uses the layer of blood that’s filled with platelets, as well as stem cells and growth factors. Then, it’s injected into the scalp with a syringe to stimulate hair growth.

PRP Treatment Timeline
Platelet rich plasma treatment typically consists of three treatments over a 4–6 week period, with maintenance treatments every 4-6 months.

What Are The Side Effects?
PRP treatment has little to no side effects and no downtime.

If you’re concerned about hair loss and you’re looking for a solution with proven results, platelet rich plasma treatment can help. Call Hans Wiemann at 1-888-608-1233 to learn more or to schedule a free hair and scalp analysis.

Alopecia Areata: Causes and Treatment

If you’ve recently noticed a substantial amount of hair falling out when you’re showering, in your hairbrush, or on your pillow, you’re probably worried about what’s going on. While a small amount of hair loss is normal, if the amount you’re noticing is out of the ordinary for you, you’ll want to speak with a dermatologist as soon as possible, as you may have an autoimmune disorder known as alopecia areata.

Alopecia, a term used to describe non-specific conditions associated with hair loss, has many causes and treatments. In general, autoimmune diseases attack your body. In the case of alopecia areata, it’s the hair follicles that are being attacked. This causes your hair to fall out, while how much varies from person to person. Some can lose a little hair in a few spots while others may lose a lot all over. In rare cases, a person can lose all the hair on their head (alopecia areata totalis) or the hair on their entire body (alopecia areata universalis).

The cause of alopecia areata is different for everyone, as is the treatment plan. While alopecia can’t be cured, the condition can be treated, and hair can grow back. At Hans Weimann, we have extensive experience with alopecia treatment in St. Louis. Contact us today at (888) 608-1233 to request additional information for treating your hair loss due to alopecia.
