The highlight of the episode came from her sister, Kim Kardashian, commenting on Kourtney’s growing bald spot. “Oh my god, I’m afraid for your life,” reacts Kim.
With the return of their reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, now on Season 17, the drama levels are as high as ever. The latest kerfuffle is all about the eldest Kardashian sibling, Kourtney and her hair, or in this case, lack of.
It seems a high ponytail that Kourtney wore at an event in New York was so tight it ended up pulling and leaving her with a bald spot on the top of her head.
Kourtney later went on to see Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr Jason Diamond, to help her out. “Today I’m getting PRP (platelet-rich plasma), which is where they take your blood and spin it and they use your plasma and they inject it in my head for my hair to grow back,” she said.
The treatment’s intentions are focused on rebuilding, and so it’s a great option as hair loss remedies go. The functions of PRP include: “helping repair blood vessels, promote cell growth and wound healing, and stimulate collagen production,” according to medical centre, The Cleveland Clinic.
PRP treatment for hair loss is on the rise, and is actually a lot simpler than you might think. “The plasma is directly injected into the patient’s hair follicles in a process that takes no more than 10 minutes, according to Jeffrey Rapaport, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist in private practice in New Jersey in the USA.
“Since the procedure involves only minimal discomfort, patients typically do not require any numbing or downtime following therapy” he says. You’ll start to see improvements after 2-3 months.
It’s the quick and effective treatment for hair loss and like Kourtney, it could possibly be the avenue to take for you.
