How Platelet Rich Plasma with Laser Therapy Help Reverse Hair Loss?
Some of the most difficult Hair Loss to treat are often Hormonal and Genetic in nature which can affect both Men and Women alike.
While Hormonal Causes of Hair Loss can be regulated through medications and even some adjustments to lifestyle including the diet, genetic causes such as Androgenic Alopecia may not be as easy to treat, sometimes even already irreversible.
In this video we are presented with a snippet of a TV show program called “The Drs.” which discusses the issue of Hair Loss affecting both Men and Women.
According to the host, Men are more susceptible to experiencing Hair Loss or Baldness in life which affects almost 80% of Men while also affecting 20% of Women, albeit somewhat rarer.
In one of the slides he presented, there it is shown on how genetics affects a person’s hair strand from its root to its stem – literally thinning and dying from the root.
However, the main topic of the show is to show a cure being researched at the University of Pennsylvania which identified the gene responsible for baldness.
Now undergoing clinical trials, the research aims to develop a gene therapy in the next two years to man’s common genetic problem – baldness. The name of the cure in study – Platelet Rich Plasma with Laser Therapy.
Demonstrating to the audience of this wonderful under-the-study treatment, we had Jessica, a woman in the video, as the subject who suffers from potentially a female pattern baldness.
In the same scenario, we also see Neil Sadick, M.D., who was the attending dermatologist to Jessica with regards to her hair condition.
When asked on how long has she observed her losing her hair, Jessica mentioned about noticing it 5 to 6 years ago, which started out simply as a thinning of her hair which then became patches which lets her see her scalp underneath her remaining layers of hair.
The main dilemma to Jessica, as much as to people who lose their hair in general, is by becoming self-aware to her condition.
With Neil Sadick, M.D., now as the focus of the video, there we see him presenting Jessica a treatment method to Hair Loss which involves the use of her blood referred to as the Platelet Rich Plasma with Laser Therapy. The method is simple: using the blood as extracted from Jessica in addition to the growth compound mixed with it, the activated growth factor produced with the procedure will be injected to her scalp in order to stimulate the scalp for hair growth.
Followed by the laser therapy, which is basically a low-energy light emitting diode red light, Jessica has to undergo the therapy at least once a week for 8 weeks.
Getting back to the doctors, which as basically the hosts of the show, there we see Neil Sadick, M.D., in an interview explaining about her pioneering treatment to Hair Loss.
The key to his procedure, according to himself, is the fact that it slows down the hair loss while also stimulating the scalp thereby promoting hair growth – an explanation brought about by the evidence seen at the latter part of the video with Jessica as the subject.
