According to a recent study published in the Journal PLOS Genetics and reported by WebMD, a group of researchers in Scotland have successfully found 287 genetic “coding regions” linked to severe hair loss in men. Researchers performed genetic analysis of 52,000 subjects, ages 40-69, making this the largest study of its type to date.
Thanks to new technology, you don’t necessarily need to go under the knife for a thicker head of hair. PRP therapy for hair loss is an exciting new non-surgical treatment that has significantly reduced hair loss for many patients. It’s also known as platelet-rich plasma therapy.
You may be hesitant to get PRP hair treatment since it’s relatively new. However, PRP has been used since the 1980s for different types of treatments. Since PRP injections use your own blood, adverse side effects are rare and there is no risk of developing a growth of tumor or cancer, according to the information resource website for PRP in Australia.
