A Warning Label for Your Pontyail
You’re a busy mom. Between taking the kids to school, activities, taking care of the home and being a rockstar at work, it’s hard to take care of your hair. So you do what most moms do… you throw your hair up in a ponytail and do all the things, like a rockstar mom!
Is Your Ponytail Actually Doing Damage to Your Hair?
Traction alopecia, or gradual hair loss, is caused by pulling tightly on the hair. It’s a common result of frequent tight ponytails or braids, that causes a recession or “fringe” along the hairline. In addition to hair loss, you might notice redness, itching or soreness on your scalp.
So what can you do if you’ve noticed thinning hair or shedding as a result of years of tight ponytails? The great news is that this condition is completely reversible. One solution is Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, therapy which creates an environment of healing and growth in the affected area.
PRP Creates an Environment of Healing and Growth
PRP is a cutting edge, minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure which can be completed in an afternoon. It has been shown to convert the hair follicles from an inactive to an active growth phase and promotes hair shaft thickness, resulting in increased hair volume. Even if you aren’t seeing signs of traction alopecia, PRP can help boost your hair thickness where it might have thinned out.
And the best part is, there are no visible signs of the procedure that you need to try and hide. You will spend an afternoon in our spa-like office and walk out with a renewed sense of confidence in your hair. It’s that simple.
So ditch the ponytail and call us today to get your hair back in tip-top shape for the summer.
