hair growth cycle
It is normal to lose about sixty, even up to a hundred strands of hair each day.
About 90 percent of your hair is growing and ten percent resting at any given time. Hair grows in cycles of 2 to 6 years, a centimeter each month per cycle. After 2-3 months the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place.
causes of hair loss
Correct identification of the cause(s) of hair loss is key to a good treatment result.
We adopt a systematic approach. Clinical examination & detailed history may be supplemented with blood tests to confirm the diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan.
Treatment plans are formulated to address individual needs and multiple factors that are leading to decline in hair quality and/or increase in hair loss or baldness.
treating hair loss
Treatment may aim to stop. limit or reverse hair loss & improve hair quality / growth.
MEDICATION and supplements may be prescribed to be taken orally or to apply.
INJECTABLES: We usually advise patients to have 3 monthly PRP sessions in one year, with annual top ups. Steroid Injections may be needed for Alopecia Areata. Botox and Fillers may be done for the scalp and hairline reshaping. Micro Needling with Meso Therapy Cocktails can be done for improving hair quality.
platelet rich plasma
PRP is derived from your own blood and helps stimulate the natural healing process.
PRP is a concentrate of platelets in plasma, considered to be a rich source of autologous growth factors & proteins.
Growth factors in PRP appear to enhance the formation of new tissue elements & increase circulation to the hair follicles and stimulate their growth. Hair regrowth is a slow process, results may be visible in 12 weeks or longer.
At Juverne we only use a world class US FDA approved PRP treatment system.
Our standardized autologous PRP treatment system gives a large volume of high quality concentrated acellular PRP or APRP. Blood draw, spinning and injection are done only by the doctor in clinic. Numbing cream is used to make the procedure comfortable.
PRP has been used extensively in orthopedics, sports medicine and surgery. Aesthetic use of PRP includes the treatment of hair thinning and baldness as well as skin rejuvenation, treatment of scars and stretch marks, as well as thickening of the eyebrows or beard.
PRP can also be used to achieve thicker and fuller eyebrows / beard.
When used for male-pattern baldness, with receding hairline or thinning over the crown; and in alopecia in women, platelet derived growth factors may stimulate the dormant shrunken hair follicles - even though the exact mechanism is not fully understood. Most patients need three sessions in a year followed by annual top ups to boost hair growth.
