Many already know that they can increase hair growth by introducing proteins and vitamins to the body or by merely stimulating the scalp with beneficial substances. But another lesser known method involves receiving injections for hair growth.
This method can either stimulate hair to grow faster or help to revive the hair follicles that are no longer producing hair. Injections are often used to treat alopecia areata which is a hair loss condition caused when your immune system mistakenly attacks your hair follicles. This results in areas of thinning hair and can even cause hair to fall out in clumps for people affected by the disease. Hair growth injections are certainly not available in an over the counter capacity and are also not offered in all areas. This hair growth treatment is only administered by a licensed doctor and must be accomplished under a high level of medical supervision.
Hair growth injections were developed as an innovative solution for hair loss for those not interested in pursuing surgery such as hair transplants. It is commonly offered by doctors through hair restoration centers. This process involves injecting a mixture of the biomatrix ACell and PRP or platelet rich plasma directly into the patient’s scalp.
Injections into bald patches of the scalp suppress the local immune reaction that occurs in alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss. They can allow the hair follicles to function normally again so hair can re-grow.
