CAUSES OF AGE SPOTS

Although age spots are usually caused by accumulated exposure to the sun‘s ultraviolet (UV) light, they may also be the result of using tanning beds/lamps; trauma or injury; or genetic predisposition. People with light skin are more likely to develop age spots, as are those with a history of frequent sunburn or sun exposure.

DIAGNOSIS OF AGE SPOTS

True age spots are harmless and do not require treatment. If what is thought to be an age spot appears irregular, however, a biopsy may be performed to ensure that it is not malignant. Spots with the following characteristics should be evaluated by a physician:

Treatment of age spots is considered strictly cosmetic, so insurance companies typically do not cover procedures to remove them.

The Treatment

The primary purpose of Natural Growth Factor Injections treatment for hair loss is to stimulate activity in the hair follicles. There are two ways in which Natural Growth Factors may be injected into the hair follicles of the scalp. One technique is to perform Microneedling, which creates micro-wounds to superficial tissue. Natural Growth Factors are then applied topically where they can penetrate the scalp through the induced injuries. The microchannels begin to heal within a few minutes, but not before stimulating nutrients can be absorbed. An additional and popular hair restoration technique is injecting Natural Growth Factors into the scalp in the area where hair is thinning. Treatment is performed with a topical anesthetic that numbs the tissue on the scalp. After drawing blood, we process the vial in a centrifuge, a piece of equipment that spins the blood to separate thrombocytes from red blood cells. Injections are then administered to the scalp. Most patients need several treatments to achieve optimal results.

FAQ

Injection treatment begins with a quick blood draw that takes less than a minute. The second centrifugation step takes a few minutes, during which topical numbing medication sits on the scalp. It usually takes less than thirty minutes.

There is zero downtime after hair treatment.

Treatments are scheduled monthly. You can expect to notice improvement within two to three months. After several treatments, injections are repeated every three to six months.

The side effects include minor discomfort at injection sites, itching, swelling, and dry scalp.
