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.
"I have always wanted to have more fullness in my breasts but haven’t wanted to undergo the traditional augmentation surgeries mostly due to downtime and other risks. Dr Schlyer was able to remove some of the excess fat from my abdomen and flanks and then use that fat to put extra volume in my breasts. I am so happy! I went from a very small B to a full C which is exactly what I was looking for!"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Mar 16, 2022
"I am a male in my early 40’s and have been seeing Dr. Schlyer for about 6 months. When I went to see him, I was always tired, couldn’t concentrate or focus on my work, and my libido was not what it used to be. Dr. Schlyer ran some tests and found my hormones were off balance. We started treatments and what a difference; I feel so much better! Now I can get more work done during the day and have enough energy for exercise, my weight has dropped and my libido is back! Thank you to Dr. Schlyer and his awesome staff!"- D.F. / Office Visit / Feb 07, 2022

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.
