Are you suffering from thinning hair or hair loss and have no idea what to do about it? If so, fret not, as hair loss is a common condition that affects millions of men and women each year. Hair loss treatment in the past has not worked for everyone and was extremely painful to receive. New advancements in treatment research have created PRP therapy, a hair restoration treatment that uses platelet rich plasma, or PRP, to treat your hair loss.
PRP treatments have been around for decades for a variety of medical conditions. Now technology is allowing PRP therapy to help you with your hair loss. PRP therapy works by separating the red blood cells from your plasma in a centrifuge; the blood sample is safely collected at the start of your procedure. Plasma is full of platelets that are critical for healing in our bodies and have an important insulin-like growth factor. Our technicians are able to use these growth factors to help stimulate the collagen reproduction and hair follicle growth on your scalp. We inject PRP directly into your scalp where you have experienced thinning or hair loss. In turn, the PRP will stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles and increase the growth phase of our hair.
PRP therapy starts with monthly injections for around three months before injections are spaced out to once every three to six months. Current research has shown a 30 to 40% hair growth increase in areas where treatment is conducted. How your body responds to the treatment is dependent on several factors including genetics, hormones, and the severity of the hair loss. PRP works best when treating recent hair loss, so make sure to call for your free consultation the moment you begin to notice hair thinning.
PRP therapy has no side effects as it uses your personal blood so you do not have to worry about allergic reactions. Second, most PRP treatments last only 15 to 20 minutes, allowing you to be in and out of the office quickly. While some patients may experience slight discomfort during the procedure, you will be able to immediately return to your everyday activities.
