When men experience hair loss, the condition often causes feelings of frustration and concern. If you're watching your hairline slowly recede every time you look in the mirror, you might feel less attractive or think you're looking older. While solutions like hair transplants and surgical grafting exist, these invasive options may not be ideal due to their downtime. Hair regrowth for men is now available in the form of mesotherapy and platelet-rich plasma, or PRP here at Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center in Beverly Hills.
Progress in the cosmetic industry has resulted in alternative treatment options for men who are losing their hair. Popular non-surgical treatments include mesotherapy and PRP. These two therapies are somewhat alike. For instance, both consist of injecting substances that stimulate hair growth naturally. The regrowth option you choose should depend on why you're losing your hair as well as your ability to follow up with repeat treatments.
Mesotherapy has been a non-surgical hair restoration option for several decades. The treatment involves superficial microinjections that a medical aesthetic specialist will insert just under the epidermal layer of skin. Your provider will inject a vitamin solution below the skin's surface to nurture your hair's natural growth. Because mesotherapy involves the use of a needle to administer the injections, tiny perforations are made in the scalp. This activates the healing process, which causes your body to produce elastin and collagen. These two substances support hair regrowth.
When men lose their hair, in some cases, it occurs due to a lack of proper nutrients, hormone imbalances or reduced blood circulation. The loss also happens when your body produces too much of the male hair loss androgen DHT. A mesotherapy solution consists of certain chemicals, amino acids, vitamins and minerals to restore balance and regrow hair.
Hair regrowth for men is possible through PRP, or platelet rich plasma. This hair loss treatment involves using your own blood to stimulate the natural growing process. After we withdraw your blood, we will process it so that only enriched cells are present. Once the blood is ready, we will inject it into your scalp. PRP contains vital proteins that stimulate natural hair regrowth. This type of hair loss treatment can make your remaining hair thicker within six to seven weeks.
PRP injections fire up essential elements within your skin. The treatment improves the area's blood supply, fat cells and collagen. It also stimulates temporary hair growth. With PRP, you will need injections monthly because the effects are not long term.
Instead of turning to invasive hair restoration treatments or surgery, consider hair regrowth for men. Mesotherapy and PRP therapy are two treatment options that can inspire hair growth naturally. At Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center in Beverly Hills, both hair regrowth treatments are available. Contact us for a consultation.
