What causes Hair Loss?

The general term for balding is alopecia, and it happens if the hair growth stages become disrupted. Some hair loss conditions are temporary while others are permanent. For many men and women, their hair loss is caused by androgenetic alopecia. Also known as male and female pattern hair loss, this condition happens for a variety of reasons, including age, genetics, and androgens (male hormones). Genetic baldness can come from either side of your family tree and can skip a generation. Unfortunately, hereditary hair loss is extremely common, and it affects approximately 30 – 50 million women and men in the U.S. The other types of hair loss conditions include:

  • Alopecia Areata
  • Telogen Effluvium
  • Anagen Effluvium
  • Trichotillomania
  • Traction Alopecia

Other factors that may impact hair development cycles or damage hair follicles include medical and scalp conditions, nutritional deficiencies, medications, hormonal imbalance, physical injury, and haircare. Hair loss can occur in specific areas on the scalp or all over.

What should I expect after hair restoration?

There's no downtime following this process, with almost no limitations or restrictions. If anything, patients may develop some redness, minimal swelling, and mild discomfort to the treated regions. These symptoms may last up to two days. While outcomes differ for each individual, aesthetic results are usually noticed approximately 4 – 6 months after the first treatment and may continue to improve for as much as a complete year following treatment. This not a permanent solution for reversing hair loss, repeat treatments are highly recommended every 12 – 18 months. It is necessary to note that hair restoration doesn't grow new hair follicles in areas where you are already bald. It is used to help reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will create healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.

Hair Restoration FAQ

How effective is PRP therapy to treat hair loss?

PRP therapy for hair loss can be very effective, but results will depend on your level of hair loss, the number of treatments you get, your aesthetic goals, and other factors. It can take time for new hair growth to appear after PRP therapy, so it is important to be patient with your results. During your consultation at New Orleans Plastic Surgery, Dr. Eagan will examine your hair, talk to you about your goals, and design a treatment plan that is best for you. Most patients will need periodic PRP treatments to maintain their results.

Are PRP injections for hair loss painful?

Before we begin the PRP injections into your scalp, and while the PRP serum is prepared, an anesthetic will be applied to your scalp to keep you comfortable. Most patients don't experience any discomfort during their procedure. After your PRP injections, your scalp will still be numb, but this is temporary and will go away fairly quickly.

Does low-level laser therapy really work to regrow hair?

Studies have shown that low-level laser therapy appeared effective for hair growth in both men and women. A 2013 men's study found that after over four months of treatment, participants showed an almost 40% increase in hair growth.
