People have been trying to cure hair loss for centuries. Most of the time, they’ve failed. Thanks to modern medicine, however, novel treatments like the hair transplant surgeries we offer at Vinci Hair Clinic have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people by restoring hairlines and reversing hair loss. Luckily, as science progresses, so does our understanding of the causes and cures for hair loss. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we pay close attention to emerging hair loss treatments; one of the most interesting we’ve seen lately is called “Vampire Therapy.”
Like the blood-sucking vampires of fiction, “Vampire Therapy” relies on withdrawing a patient’s own blood. Your blood is a potent source of healing because of the many different cells that it contains. Scientists are just now beginning to understand new dimensions of its full medical potential. For example, the platelets in your blood release proteins called “growth factors” that send signals to bone, skin, and cartilage to stimulate and accelerate repair. According to the Daily Mail[i], drawing blood, extracting the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and applying that PRP to skin, joints, muscles, tendons, or scars has been shown to spur regenerative processes more effectively than many alternative treatments.
For us, the most exciting application of this new therapy is for victims of male- and female-pattern baldness. The British Association of Dermatologists has shown that injecting the PRP of pattern-baldness patients into their scalps decreases the rate of hair loss. What’s more, the therapy has caused existing hairs to increase in thickness. This promising new therapy could help hundreds of thousands of people prevent hair loss and promote hair thickness.
Unfortunately, if baldness has already progressed far enough, most therapies––including the promising “Vampire Therapy” ––are ineffectual. In these cases, the only effective, permanent solutions are hair transplant surgery and scalp micropigmentation procedures. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we employ world-class surgeons and micropigmentation experts to provide permanent solutions.
