PRP Hair Restoration
Understanding PRP Hair Restoration Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a type of plasma that contains a lot of platelets. For decades, platelet-rich plasma therapy has been used to help injured ligaments, tendons, muscles, and joints heal faster. PRP therapy has been shown to improve function and reduce pain. PRP has been used to fade acne scars, stimulate collagen growth, and rejuvenate aging skin for cosmetic purposes.
Hair growth has also been shown to be aided by PRP therapy. The follicles do not disappear when people lose their hair; they simply become dormant. PRP treatment stimulates stem cells, rejuvenates thinning strands, and promotes regrowth by using active growth factors and cytokines found in your blood.
The PRP Hair Restoration Process
PRP is widely regarded as a safe and effective alternative to surgery for reversing hair loss. To slow shedding, thicken hair strands, and improve hair quality, PRP therapy can be used alone or in combination with other medical hair loss treatments. The procedure is straightforward.
A small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm by your hair restoration specialist. After that, the blood drawn from your arm is spun in a centrifuge machine. The platelets are separated from your blood using a centrifuge. Essential growth proteins are released by the highly concentrated platelets. After your blood has been centrifuged, you should:
1.) Your scalp is prepared with an antiseptic solution
2.) An anesthetic may be applied, but is not always necessary
3.) Platelets and growth proteins are injected into your scalp using a thin needle
4.) You can expect 15-20 injections per treatment session
While a PRP treatment can take up to an hour, the majority of that time is spent in preparation. Depending on the treatment area, injections can take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes. Your hair restoration specialist will most likely advise you to repeat this procedure once a month for at least three months.
PRP Hair Restoration Could be Your Hair Loss Solution
Hair loss and baldness can be caused by a variety of medical conditions, medications, and infections, but hair loss is most often genetic. Men are more likely than women to lose hair in a specific pattern (male pattern baldness), whereas women are more likely to lose hair evenly across their scalp.
It’s likely reassuring to know that your hair loss isn’t permanent if your strands are thinning, your hairline is receding, or your reflection reveals more scalp than you’d like. PRP hair restoration can thicken individual hair strands while also reversing hair loss. In as little as three months, you could have measurable results.
