PRP Hair Restoration
If you are someone that is starting to see the signs of hair loss, there are many treatments available. Fortunately, PRP hair restoration has been proven effective at reversing hair loss and restoring volume in men and women.
The idea is PRP can woke somnolent hair cells to behave more like young healthy hair cells to produce more hair and possibly thicker hair. PRP harnesses your own bodies regenerative powers to stimulate natural hair growth The treatment is thought to facilitate hair follicle development. It is also used for skin rejuvenation and to improve wrinkles, skin tone and condition.
What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
First your own blood is taken in the office and the plasma is separated by a centrifuge. Growth factors are found in the concentrated plasma which is important because growth factors are messengers that tell our hair cells and skin to function optimally. Furthermore, the PRP therapy for hair loss procedure can be combined with other hair loss medications and treatments to help achieve the best results. Several monthly treatments are required to be effective, especially in combination with other treatment options.
The PRP Injection Procedure
PRP injections have proven to create a number of new approaches to helping people with a variety of health and cosmetic concerns. The best news of all is that PRP injections are, by all accounts, quite safe. They are safe because they rely on using growth factors found inside your own blood to treat your condition. Platelets circulate in your blood and contain powerful growth-factors. We concentrate these growth factors and micro-inject them into hair follicles to stimulate growth.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections involves our drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and then centrifuging it with specific medicines to concentrate the powerful growth factors and anti- inflammatory components of the blood. This “PRP” is then gently and painlessly injected into the hair loss area of the scalp. This process takes 45-60 minutes and demands no recovery time. With several PRP treatments and the continued application of our topical treatments, most of our patients notice their hair loss stops. Additionally, over 80% of our treated patient’s hair has grown thicker and denser.
It is this “lunchtime” treatment approach that has the most potential to help patients with hair loss. However, it is also important to know that treating hair loss is challenging and frustrating. At times, the responses to treatment can be less than hoped for and some patients grow disappointed with their outcomes.
Ideal candidates for PRP therapy
Healthy men and women who are experiencing hair loss may greatly benefit from PRP. Millions of people in the U.S. suffer from male or female pattern hair loss and other types of hair loss. Whether the hair loss is due to hormones or hereditary issues, PRP therapy can help reverse the process.
Downtime and recovery from PRP therapy
With few to no side effects, the PRP process involves a minimal recovery time. Many patients feel comfortable enough to resume their day or return to work after the treatment. Slight pain, pinpoint bleeding, infection, or redness are potential side effects from the procedure. New hair growth, providing a fuller and thicker head of hair is the ideal result over time.
What kind of results can I expect?
Individual hair restoration results following PRP therapy vary. This can depend on specific variables like your skin type. In most cases, we recommend multiple treatment sessions and regular follow up visits to monitor your results to ensure optimal hair restoration.
When Will I See Results?
Because the PRP is actually stimulating the hair growth, results are not immediately visible. As the next cycle of hair growth begins, that is usually when you will start seeing the results of the PRP hair restoration treatments. Restoring your hair over time will usually take more than one treatment. Our professionals recommend getting a PRP treatment every 4- 6 weeks for the best possible results. Ultimately the results depend on each individual, and your needs and goals are taken into consideration at your consultation. Our team will develop a personalized treatment plan with you to ensure the maximum hair growth is achieved for you.
