Are you experiencing hair loss or balding? At Ogden Clinic, we serve patients throughout Utah who are experiencing hair loss with several treatment options including plasma-rich platelet injections and low-level laser therapy. These Utah hair loss treatments are safe, effective, and boast few, if any, side effects.
Several factors can lead to hair loss in both men and women, such as hormonal changes, certain medications, pre-existing medical conditions, radiation therapy, stress, and heredity. Most cases of hair loss occur on the scalp, but some conditions can result in hair loss across the entire body. Patients at our Utah offices are often interested in hair loss treatment due to bald and patchy spots on the scalp, receding hair lines, or gradual thinning of hair on the top of the head.
At Ogden Clinic, our specialists have two treatment options that significantly reduce hair loss and foster the growth of new hair.
Plasma-Rich Platelet Injections:This therapy was developed to help people recover from injuries to joints, but it has also been shown to regrow lost hair. During plasma-rich platelet injection therapy, your doctor will remove a sample of blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets. The plasma is then reinjected into the body. Plasma is shown to help repair blood vessels, stimulate collagen production, and promote cell growth. Plasma is injected into the scalp in the areas where hair loss has occurred. The frequency of injections will be based on your level of hair loss, age, and genetic history.
Low Level Laser Therapy:Low level laser therapy has few side effects and is effective for genetic forms of hair loss, androgenetic alopecia, and pattern balding. During a low-level therapy treatment for hair loss, light and heat is used to treat the patches of scalp where hair is not growing. The light from the laser stimulates the metabolic processes necessary for hair growth.
