Women may be more vocal about their concern for hair loss. But it’s a problem that affects men, too. Hair loss can be caused by genetics, medical conditions, stress and a lot more. We’re here to tell you that one thing regarding hair loss is universal. It can be reversed without surgery, thanks to innovative technology. This technology is known as PRP hair restoration therapy.
What is PRP Hair Restoration?
About a decade ago, PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, was used to treat sports injuries and speed up the healing process following surgery. After years of research, PRP hair restoration was born. This revolutionary treatment uses your body’s own platelets to stimulate hair growth. The process is simple but extremely effective.
How It Works
PRP hair restoration is so effective because it injects your body’s platelets where they’re needed the most. Research has shown that growth factors found in platelets can increase hair density by 30 to 40%. These growth factors also lengthen the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle. This means your hair spends more time growing, resulting in longer hair.
What to Expect During Treatment
PRP hair restoration treatment starts with the drawing of your blood. The drawn blood is put into a centrifuge, where the platelets and plasma are separated. Then, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into your scalp where your hair is thinning.
What to Expect After Treatment
PRP hair restoration therapy usually occurs in a series of treatment sessions. At this point, you should notice your hair growing thicker and longer. The frequency of treatment depends on many factors, including genetics, the pattern of your baldness, hormones and the extent of your hair loss.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The beauty of PRP therapy for hair restoration is it’s nearly universally accepted. Since it uses your body’s own plasma, there’s no risk of the treatment being rejected. The best candidate for hair restoration with PRP therapy has noticed significant hair thinning, such as male-pattern baldness, and wants to restore his hair. Since it’s harder to “activate” hair follicles that have been dormant for an extremely long time, the sooner you come in for treatment, the faster the treatment will work.
