Changes in your hormone levels because of pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or thyroid problems cause hair loss.
Alopecia is a medical condition that causes patchy hair loss and scalp infections.
The side effects of some drugs, including radiation therapy, can cause hair loss.

How does PRP treat hair loss?
At Annandale Skin & Anti Aging, our team is proud to offer platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy to treat hair loss in patients of all ages.
PRP therapy is a revolutionary treatment that uses microneedling with platelet-rich plasma to stimulate hair growth.
Our specialists takes a sample of your own blood and runs it through a machine to separate the platelets from other blood matter. This platelet solution is injected in targeted areas on your scalp using a microneedling process.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that tricks your skin into thinking it’s been injured, which induces collagen production to improve the strength and look of your skin. Combining microneedling with PRP accelerates the healing process is accelerated even further because of the regenerative properties that occur naturally in your blood.
The combination of microneedling and PRP triggers natural hair growth by increasing the blood supply to your hair follicles and increasing the thickness of your hair shaft. Because PRP uses your own blood, it’s a very safe process with no side effects.
