Advances in Aesthetic Therapies: Plasma-Rich Protein Procedure for the Treatment of Alopecia
Predominance of aesthetic options is growing and evolving to include procedures that have traditionally been much more invasive and fiscally challenging for the average patient. It is not uncommon now for the Canadian consumers to begin to look for lesser invasive options that show results significant enough to improve their appearance but that may not fall under the traditional health care coverage. One area that is evolving quickly is the nonsurgical treatment of hair loss. This is not a new condition, but generally the methods of treatment are not under the current health coverage; therefore, consumers are paying out of pocket to reduce or replace their hair loss. Recently, more options have evolved, and utilizing platelet-rich plasma has become more prevalent as a method to support hair growth and prevent hair loss.
