Platelet Rich Plasma, more commonly known as PRP, is an exciting new therapy that is proving itself very effective at treating a wide variety of conditions. Hair restoration is one of the most popular treatments offered by PRP therapy. This non-surgical option can help people who have experienced hair loss or thinning regain their coverage and confidence. Different procedures are better suited to different individuals. If you are suffering from hair loss or thinning hair, hair restoration via PRP may be the right option for you!
Who Is a Good Candidate for Hair Restoration via PRP?
Both PRP and PRF enable growth factors in the scalp to trigger the hair follicles to grow and can even lower instances of hair loss. There are some things that make people better candidates for this procedure than others. They are:
- Being in the early stages of hair loss
- Being in good overall health
- Having a weak amount of hair growth with observable active follicles
- Wanting a non-surgical solution to your hair loss
- Having realistic expectations
How Does Hair Restoration via PRP Work?
A small amount of blood is collected from the patient. This is then spun in a centrifuge. After this, the platelets are injected into the scalp. A localized numbing agent is applied to the scalp prior to implementation. There is no downtime associated with having PRP therapy done for hair restoration. Platelets are full of cytokines and various growth factors. They will encourage your body to heal and help restore your hair follicles to their prior level of performance.
You may need more than one treatment to achieve your desired results. These treatments should be spaced a number of weeks apart; this will help you achieve the best results possible. Maintenance treatments may need to be done every few months. How long it will take you to see results can vary from person to person. Our professionals can create a customized treatment plan to fit your needs and hair goals.
