PRP for Hair Restoration

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration is a cutting-edge technology that involves a simple injection of your own platelets into your scalp. This exciting new non-surgical treatment infuses your scalp with your own natural growth factors to promote cellular regeneration and stimulation of hair growth. Platelets play a key role in the natural cell regeneration process by releasing growth factors that trigger tissue repair, cell renewal, and collagen production.  PRP therapy has been used successfully to treat hair loss in both men and women. Injections are made directly into the scalp, where the growth factors in PRP are thought to signal hair follicles to remain in the growth phase longer, resulting in thicker, fuller hair.

PRP for Hair Regrowth:

  • Promotes hair follicle regeneration
  • Increases blood supply to the follicle
  • Increases shaft size (thickness)
  • Triggers and maintains the hair growth phase
  • Decreases hair loss

This quick 30-minute treatment involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own platelets. First, a special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a specialized centrifuge. After centrifugation, your concentrated platelets are prepared and injected strategically into your scalp in the areas that need improvement.

How PRP Works:

Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signaling molecules that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has led different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.

Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth using PRP. With PRP for hair regrowth, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jump-start dormant hair back into the growth stage.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

How many treatments are required? Treatment will vary based on your need. Initially, your provider may recommend several treatments spaced 1 month apart. After the initial treatment, many physicians suggest maintenance treatments 2-4 times per year.

Is the PRP for hair restoration process time-consuming? No. Collecting the PRP usually only takes about 15 minutes. And the PRP treatment itself is even faster. It often takes as little as 5 minutes.

Does the procedure hurt? There may be some sensitivity. However, your physician will utilize effective anesthetic solutions such as Zimmer ™cooling to minimize any potential discomfort.

Is there any recovery time? There is no downtime; however, your scalp may be a little sore for 24 hours following your procedure. You may take a warm shower the evening of the treatment. It is advised to avoid using any harsh dyes or chemicals on your hair for 48 hours.

Is this a cure for baldness? PRP is not a cure for baldness (Androgenic Alopecia). The genetic medical problem will always remain. However, there is evidence that regular treatments can significantly slow down the effects of Androgenic Alopecia and increase hair density.
