PRP Hair Restoration for Thinning Hair

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Aug 23, 2019 4:12:24 PM

Are you suffering from thinning hair? Advanced Specialty Care offers PRP Hair Restoration to naturally treat hair loss and thinning hair in both men and women.

PRP hair restoration provides a natural, safe and effective treatment for hair loss with little downtime.

What is PRP?

PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma, is a high concentration of your body’s own nutrient-rich blood cells that contains essential growth factors and proteins.

Your doctor will draw a small amount of your blood and place it in a centrifuge machine to rapidly spin it, separating out the platelets to create the PRP. The PRP is then injected into the scalp at the hair follicles in the area of thinning hair.

Because the Platelet Rich Plasma used is from your own body, it is completely natural and very safe.

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an allergic reaction of the food tube to either foods or inhalants. The allergic reaction causes swelling, inflammation and long term scarring of the esophagus, the food tube connecting the mouth and stomach.

According to the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders, eosinophilic esophagitis is a rare disease, but increasing in prevalence with an estimated 1 out of 2,000 people affected.

What are the Symptoms of Eosinophilic Esophagitis?

Initially, eosinophilic esophagitis was most often see in infants, but more recently, it's been seen with increasing frequency in adults.

In the early stages of this condition, patients often experience intermittent episodes of heartburn and reflux.

Over time, the swelling and inflammation from the allergic reaction and irritation may cause difficulty swallowing and occasionally food trapping, where food becomes stuck in the esophagus.

8 Signs That You Need Your Hearing Checked

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Jul 12, 2019 3:05:06 PM

Hearing loss is a very common problem affecting nearly 40 million people of all ages and when left untreated, it can have a substantial impact on a person's overall well being and health.

The ability to hear contributes to personal safety, social and emotional well being, independence and more. In fact, studies have shown that untreated hearing loss has been linked to depression, stress, memory issues along with other social and medical conditions.

There are many factors that can cause or contribute to hearing loss and they range from aging, genetics, medications, medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes to exposure to loud noises especially for construction workers, police officers, firefighters, armed forces and musicians. And since hearing changes often happen slowly, you may be experiencing hearing loss without even noticing yourself.

Because hearing loss is a gradual process, it’s always a good idea to check your hearing even before you notice any problems to track any changes and take precautions before it becomes a problem.
