Healthy Hair Growth

Updated: May 22, 2023

One less thing to stress about

Is stress causing your hair to thin? Generally, three out of four Americans have reported higher than normal levels of stress. Due to Covid 19, that number is higher today. Even though everyone reacts to stress differently, it is a root cause for thinning hair. The stress you are living through now can show up as thinning hair and excess shedding in the next few months.


Acute Stress

short term, mild to very intense.

Chronic Stress

longer-term, can vary somewhat in intensity, it can even feel mild enough to go unnoticed.


Whether you have acute stress, chronic stress or both, it is important to help your body adapt to support your hair health.

At Luma MD we want to support you to be proactive about your stress and the effect it has on your hair.

One of the ways we target hair loss at our practice Is with a product called Nutrafol. It is the only clinically tested hair supplement with a powerful stress adaptogen called Sensoril® Ashwagandha, which is shown to build resistance to stress. Nutrafol improves hair growth and thickness by targeting stress and other root causes of thinning hair.

Nutrafol Ingredients For Stress

  • Ashwagandha: Balances Stress Hormones

  • Vitamin D: Supports a stressed immune system

  • Collagen: Replenishes collagen depleted by stress

  • Curcumin: Counters inflammatory effects of stress

  • Tocotrienol Complex: Lowers oxidative stress

What kind of results can be expected?

Clinical tests show that patients taking Nutrafol Supplements as directed have shown an improvement in three to six months. 86% of women saw improved hair growth after 6 months. 72% of men saw improvement in scalp coverage after 6 months.

Talk to us at Luma MD about our PRF treatments. Can it help my thinning hair? Yes. PRF injections into the scalp naturally stimulate your hair follicles with the necessary growth factors to make more hair naturally. Additionally, the growth factors stimulate new and improved blood supply into the scalp to nourish your hair follicles.

Recovery for PRF

Thankfully, depending on the treatment provided there is very minimal recovery time- typically 1-2 days. A client can return to his or her routine right after the procedure. Typically, depending on the procedure, clients are advised to have a day of calmer activities and limit strenuous physical activity. Our expert staff will provide you with detailed “post-treatment care” to optimize your results.


If you would like to safely and effectively improve the health and appearance of your hair, Nutrafol will be an excellent option.

Booking a consultation with Luma MD can be done online or by calling (941)-342-1333, ext. 204. We look forward to hearing from you.
