04 Jun Can You Get A Biotin Injection For Hair Growth At Home?
Although the stigma of getting hair growth treatments continues to fade, the need for them can still leave people feeling self-conscious. Thankfully, VIP mobile healthcare services like Concierge MD LA will come to you to give treatments such as a biotin injection to improve the strength, thickness, and appearance of your hair. But which injection is best for you? Read on to learn more.
Choosing the right treatment
New research regarding hair growth treatments is constantly coming out, which is why it’s important to choose a provider with a modern edge. Some businesses continue to give hair growth treatments without updating their practices for years – meaning you could be paying for treatments that aren’t as effective as they could be.
Biotin injections have been studied for improved nail and hair growth for some time. While biotin (aka vitamin B-7) can help, it’s most beneficial for those who have medical issues like alopecia causing a biotin deficiency or other related underlying cause of hair loss/brittle nails.
In other words, if your hair loss is not caused by an underlying medical condition, a biotin injection is unlikely to result in significant hair regrowth.
As for risks, the body flushes out unneeded biotin, so it’s unlikely that a healthy person would overdose on it. However, it is possible to have negative side effects from Biotin, especially if you suffer from health issues that could be caused by low vitamin C and vitamin B-6 levels. People with or at risk of diabetes should be especially cautious as too-high biotin levels can cause high blood sugar and a decline in insulin production.
Platelet-Rich Plasma – a solution that starts with you (literally!)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair regrowth treatments are developed using your own cells. A small blood sample is taken and used to develop the treatment, which is then injected into your scalp.
Unlike Biotin, PRP hair treatments appear to help hair regrowth in healthy people without underlying conditions. Although PRP treatment benefits may only last 12-18 months in some with male-pattern baldness, re-treating the scalp again can extend the benefits.
Best of all, treatments are made up of your own cells. As such, no major side effects have been recorded.
