Amy Bernards Provides Treatments for Hair Loss in Mauston

Mile Bluff Medical Center’s dermatology specialist, Amy Bernards, offers treatments that can help with hair loss.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments have been proven to help individuals who are in the process of actively losing their hair. Using your body’s own PRP - which contains growth factors and stem cells - can help rejuvenate hair follicles and lead to hair regrowth. “There are a good amount of people that… have genetically-driven hair loss, and there aren't really very many treatments. Platelet-rich plasma is a great treatment for that,” explained Bernards.

Before your procedure begins, your blood is drawn and the PRP is extracted. Next, a mild numbing cream is applied, which makes the process pretty comfortable. After the cream has a chance to sit for about 20 minutes, the PRP can be injected.

Mile Bluff offers a package deal that includes three treatments, one every four to six weeks. The PRP needs time to regenerate, so it can take about four months for the hair to start growing back. “It’s usually a whole regimen that we follow,” said Bernards. “Because hair loss is quite stubborn, especially if it's genetically driven,” she added.

Mile Bluff has dermatology services that may be able to help in your hair loss journey. There are even some treatments that can be covered by insurance. Amy Bernards is accepting new patients, and consultation appointments are available to help you understand what treatment options may be right for you.
