What is Hair Loss Treatment?
Hair loss is a major concern for many men and women, whether it happens because of genetics, age, hormones, health conditions, or from years of over styling. With recent advances in research, new treatments have been developed to help combat this issue, including platelet-rich plasma, exosome, and laser cap therapies. After deciding on the correct method of treatment, Dr. Arthur Schlyer can help to strengthen your hair, resulting in thicker, longer, healthier locks. Please call Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL to learn more about these treatment options.

"When you are looking for getting your youth back, Dr. Schlyer has all the tools available to get you to a beautiful you again. I am so glad I found Dr. Schlyer as he is the best in his field. All my life I had my 11s between my eyebrows. Dr. Schlyer got that taken care of for me and I am amazed with the result! He not only took care of my 11s, but also smoothed out my forehead, and now I do not look angry any longer. He also noted that I could use some fillers to help with my smile lines. I did not even know that was an option! I cannot wait to get that done and look 10 to 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Schlyer! Annie G"- A.G. / Google / Nov 30, 2020

Any patient experiencing hair loss is an excellent candidate for PRP hair therapy, but patients with early hair loss tend to have better results. PRP may help patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetic type of hair loss that mostly presents along the top of the head. In women, this could look like a broadening part with regular hair thickness on the back of the head. Typically, those with areas of poor-quality hair growth on the scalp yet still functioning hair follicles have the greatest success with PRP hair regrowth treatments.
Our Hair Loss Treatment Techniques
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy – This procedure begins with us drawing a small amount of your blood from your arm and putting it in a centrifuge. The centrifuge will then spin the blood at a high speed to separate the plasma from your blood components. After that, we'll place the platelet-rich plasma on the treatment areas of your scalp. Finally, we perform microneedling to create micro-injuries to the epidermis. These micro-injuries make it easier for the PRP to absorb deep into the skin. To maintain your results, we recommend scheduling treatments every 9 – 12 months.
Exosome Therapy – An exosome is a micro-vesicle extracted from a viable harvested cell. These can be used to improve many of the body's natural restorative processes, including hair growth. When the exosomes are injected into the scalp, they strengthen the cells found in the scalp, which stimulates the hair follicles and leads to thicker, richer hair.
Laser Cap Therapy – For those searching for a hair loss treatment without needles, laser cap therapy could be an appealing option. The interior of each cap is embedded with laser diodes that aid in boosting the cellular respiration and function of the cells found in the hair. This, in turn, can allow for an increase in hair quantity and quality.
What to Expect
After your procedure, you'll have no recovery period and virtually no limits or restrictions. In some cases, patients may develop redness, minor swelling, or slight discomfort near the treatment areas. These symptoms may last up to two days. While outcomes differ for each patient, you can typically see results 4 – 6 months after the first session, and those results may continue to improve for up to a full year following therapy. Since PRP is not a permanent option for hair loss, we suggest scheduling follow-up sessions every 12 – 18 months. In places where you're already bald, it's crucial to understand that PRP does not create new hair follicles. It's used to help enhance your current hair follicles so that they grow healthier, thicker, and longer hair fibers.
