How does PRP help with hair loss?

PRP, which stands for platelet rich plasma, as a treatment for hair loss became popular after researchers determined that high concentrations of platelets in plasma cells help promote hair growth. It works by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle. Injections of plasma are put directly into the scalp where hair loss has occurred. PRP is thought to trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood flow to the hair follicle. This method is often used in combination with other hair loss treatments or medications.

What is PRP?

PRP is platelet rich plasma. It helps with cell growth and it has been used for injuries as well as hair loss. Patients who have had surgeries have recovered faster with PRP therapy. In some cases, doctors will treat patients with PRP therapy prior to surgery. A patient’s own blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge so it can be spun, causing separation. The PRP is then pulled into a syringe and injected into the scalp. Using PRP for hair loss is relatively low in risk, but can result in injury to blood vessels or nerves, infection, calcification, and scar tissue.

What is suboxone therapy?

Suboxone therapy is a treatment for opioid or heroin addiction. Suboxone can be made up of buprenorphine or a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone and is administered under the watchful eye of doctors during withdrawal. It is followed by a maintenance program when you are no longer having withdrawal symptoms and having minimal side effects. Despite its effectiveness, Suboxone is known to cause serious side effects, so it must only be used under the supervision of a medical professional.

Does Suboxone help with pain?

Suboxone is prescribed off-label to treat pain. Off-label means it is not approved by the FDA for this use but it can still be prescribed legally by doctors. It is often used in combination with an over-the-counter pain relief medication, such as aspirin and acetaminophen, or Excedrin, which contains a small amount of caffeine and can help to relieve mild pain. Suboxone can help to alleviate the symptoms of withdraw from opioids.

How long should you take Suboxone?

Suboxone is a treatment that can be used to deal with pain and the symptoms associated with opioid withdraw. It is considered safe, but it should not be used indefinitely. The length of time it should be used varies from person to person depending on the progress of his or her withdraw. However, experts recommend that Suboxone not be used permanently, except in cases when it is prescribed to treat a medical condition and not deal with withdraw.

What do you do if you have ED due to diabetes?

ED is a common side effect of diabetes but it can be managed. Working with a doctor can help you get issues under control as quickly as possible. By improving blood sugar levels you are reducing the risk for nerve and blood vessel damage that can trigger erectile dysfunction. It is also important to make sure there is no secondary cause or that your medications are not causing ED. Counseling can also help alleviate the symptoms of ED.

Is ED a normal part of aging?

Many people believe that ED is a normal part of aging, but it does not need to be. Healthy lifestyle choices can help you reduce your risk for developing ED and assist you in maintaining a healthy sex life. Many instances of age-related ED are linked to a decrease in testosterone – something that is extremely treatable. ED might also be linked to psychological issues which can occur as a person ages, so it is important to seek counseling if any issues arise.
