Hair loss is a common problem. Hair loss occurs when the cycle of hair growth and shedding is disrupted or when the hair follicle is destroyed and replaced with scar tissue.
Several causes of hair loss:
Family history of hair loss
Heredity hair loss is the most common especially man and termed as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. It usually occurs gradually and in a receding hairline and bald spots in men and thinning hair in women.
Hormonal changes and medical conditions
Hormonal changes and imbalance can be due to pregnancy, childbirth or onset of menapause, scalp infection, alopecia areata (body’s immune system attacks hair follicles), thyroid problem etc.
Hair loss might be due to drugs used for cancer, heart problem, depression, birth control, high blood pressure etc.
Hair Growth Treatment with Plasma Rich Protein (PRP)
Before and after
Ideal candidates for PRP therapy are patients who are:
PRP hair restoration naturally reverses thinning hair by increasing hair thickness and stimulating a healthy growth of hair follicles. It does not re-grow hair.
How PRP Works
PRP treatment for hair loss is administered via injections to the scalp. Our trained professionals at Lucy Peters with begin the procedure with the collection of the patient’s blood retracted from their arm. The blood is amalgamated and is then placed in a centrifuge for fifteen minutes to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other components the blood harbors. The scalp is prepped with a solution to help reduce bacteria that can potentially cause infection. Platelet-rich plasma is blood that has been enriched with a high concentration of platelets. PRP is created by separating platelets from a blood sample, increasing their concentration, and mixing them back into the extracted plasma, making it 5 to 10 times richer in platelets. This plasma is injected into a wound or surgical site to accelerate tissue healing and the formation of new cellular growth.

LED Photomodulation Therapy for Hair Loss
The iGrow’s® proprietary Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) technology utilizes a highly effective combination of red laser and LED light diodes to effectively stimulate and energize cellular activity causing an uptake in the natural function of the hair follicle. This 4 to 6 month process treats hair thinning/loss, by effectively growing hair that is thicker, fuller and healthier-looking.
LED Photomodulation doesn’t require heat therefore patients will feel no pain during the treatments. LED Photomodulation is truly a pain free, risk free, and very affordable solution.
The LED light works by stimulating blood circulation in the scalp. Scalp cells require oxygen for hair to be strong and resilient. With LED treatment, hair loss is stopped and hair growth stimulated. Gradually, hair follicles reappear and the hair grows. LED treatment against hair loss is natural and totally painless.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant
What is (FUE)?
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a method of extracting, or “harvesting,” donor hair in a (follicular unit) hair transplant procedure.
In FUE hair transplant surgery, an instrument is used to make a small, circular incision in the skin around a follicular unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue.
