Suffering with excessive shedding, thinning or loss of hair can be a silent struggle for both male and female patients. Hair loss has many causes including (but not limited to) heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or medications associated with them, a stressful life event and certain styling techniques. Diagnosis is often incredibly patient specific, which is why it is important you seek the guidance of an expert. Dr. Omer Ibrahim’s interest in the condition of alopecia and hair loss began with working alongside Dr. Wilma Fowler Bergfeld at the Cleveland Clinic, who is one of the nation’s top experts on hair loss. As the hair growth guru of Chicago, Dr. Omer Ibrahim runs a Tuesday morning hair loss clinic at CCSD, recommending many successful, results-driven care plans for patients, the most popular being Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. Platelet-rich plasma is blood plasma that contains essential proteins to stimulate natural hair growth. This therapy involves drawing a patient’s own blood, spinning it so that only enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and re-injecting it into the scalp. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months following treatment. Hair growth will continue to improve up to a year thereafter. Take a look at Dr. Ibrahim’s amazing results HERE.
