Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is quickly becoming one of the most versatile uses for healing. Originating as a healing mechanism for bones and to speed up post-surgery recovery time, it has now turned a new leaf, to promote the growth and nourishment of hair follicles.

With this new wave of PRP desire reaching an all-time high, there are a few things that people should know to determine if this treatment is right for them. PRP is excellent for restimulating the hair follicle however, it will not regrow hair in an area where you have completely lost the hair follicle.

Having this treatment is meant to make the hair thicker, stronger, more nourished, and more abundant. People should not expect to grow a full head of hair if they are bald, the only thing to regrow hair in that area would be a hair transplant.

There are many people trying to sell PRP treatments but only one that delivers real results. Dr. Kahen's SMART PRP® is the only PRP on the market that can restimulate the hair follicles with just one treatment per year. Other practices have patients coming in for several sessions of PRP and not guaranteeing to see the result until after the third or fourth session. This is because the technology other practices are using is dated and will not deliver you the results that patients see at Beverly Hills Hair Restoration.

After determining if PRP treatments are right for you, do research on the practice you choose to have your treatment completed. Ensure that the before and after pictures are consistent and to your expectations. Be sure that you are going to a practice where the treatment delivers results after the first time!

It would seem like common sense if something is uncomfortable, don't do continue to do it. However, in today's world, many people feel the need to compromise with pain for beauty. When someone wears tight, high ponytails or tight braids it puts tension on your hair follicles. Follicles are small pockets of your skin that surround the root of a hair. The nerves and blood vessels in your scalp feed the roots of your hair.

When someone pulls your hair back tightly and up high, it puts your hair at a sharp angle which causes tension on that follicle unit and causes some strangulation. And because there are nerve endings on the scalp, this tension can cause pain—even more so if your hair is long or thick or if you're wearing extensions because that adds extra weight on the ponytail. This causes even more traction on the hair follicle which can lead to traction alopecia.

It’s not just pain you have to worry about—this kind of tension on your hair follicles can cause permanent damage.
Chronic traction on the hair follicles can cause permanent thinning of the hair and bald spots; traction alopecia.

When someone begins to put tension on the hair shaft and hair follicle, that constant and chronic pressure leads to eventual destruction of that hair shaft and harm to the follicle itself.

Luckily, it is possible to stop this kind of hair loss before it becomes permanent. So, if you start to notice some hair loss after wearing your hair a certain way, you'll want to stop immediately. Initially, this hair loss can be temporary, but with time it can become permanent, thus the only thing to fix this issue would be a hair transplant.

This doesn't mean that people have to stop wearing these hairstyles altogether, it just means where them in moderation. Doing anything constantly is not a good idea in the first place.

People need to let their hair have versatile styles. Try to let the hair relax as much as possible and keep the high tension dos to a minimum.

Losing an increasing amount of hair strands daily? Don't panic.

Hair loss can stem from several different reasons. Losing hair is a common issue that globally effects many lives.

The hair follicle, which is the connective tissue that surrounds the root, has its own life cycle causing a strand to fall physiologically.

However, if you're experiencing excessive hair shedding, being proactive with the hair loss is going to allow you to put an end to the hair fall and maintain what you have.

Some of the reasons for hair fall are genetics, male/female pattern baldness, temporary hair loss that usually happens after stress, a shock, or a traumatic event.

Hair thinning can mean two things—either the thickness of your hair strands is reduced or the thickness of your hair, as a whole, is reduced.
Even if it appears that your hair hasn't grown for quite some time, that's already falling into the category of hair loss.

Hair loss can be more gradual. So if you're not paying attention to it, the progression of the hair loss can sneak up on you, and without any prevention, some of the hair follicles can be lost forever.

Hair follicles have a life cycle of three to five years. Meaning, if the strands fall, it will go through phases to replace with new hair.

The cycle of hair fall typically comes as follows :

Anagen is the phase when the hair grows out from the follicles, and the shaft is continuously constructed, increasing the length of your hair.

This can last from two to six years.

Catagen prepares hair to go into resting. This can last for about two weeks.

Telogen, which takes about five to six weeks, is called the resting phase.

This is when the hair stops growing and eventually falls out to let a new hair replace it. This can last for about 5-6 weeks.

Hair loss occurs when your hair falls out without completing the whole cycle.


The question that soon faces most people, is can the lost hair follicles grow back?

Yes, you can reactivate the hair follicles and regrow fuller hair if there is still alive dormant hair follicle. However, if you have completely lost the follicle, the only way to replace the hair is a hair transplant. The key is to be proactive with your hair loss and to use products/medications/supplements that actually work.

Some of the best products recommended by Beverly Hills Hair Restoration are Viviscal vitamins, Nioxin Shampoos, Finestride/Propecia medication, and Dr. Kahen's Smart PRP®.

While shampoos and vitamins are great to prevent more hair fall, receiving a treatment such as Dr. Kahen's SmartPRP® works synergistically allowing patients to maintain the hair they have, stimulate new follicle growth, and prevent future hair loss.

Hair loss is regressive, meaning that over time more and more hair will fall. With this being said it is important to stay consistent with your hair loss prevention regime.

Hair transplants are a permanent solution to hair loss, however, the maintenance of a prevention is the best way to be in control of your hair loss.
