Hair loss can be very disappointing, ultimately leading to a decrease in self-confidence. Hereditary hair loss, in particular, is the most common cause in both men and women. This natural condition, which is driven by a combination of hormone levels, genetics, and the overall aging process, can be very devastating to one’s self-esteem; however, both men and women can now have thicker, healthier hair with platelet rich plasma derived from their own blood!
But, wait a minute… What is platelet rich plasma (PRP) and how does it help hair loss?
The platelets in our blood contain healing growth factors, which are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. With PRP for Hair, 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. This quick injection involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own platelets using a very easy three-step process!
With many people searching for ways to stimulate hair growth, PRP has emerged as a simple non-surgical option to treat hair thinning/loss, especially in the early stages before total hair loss. For complete hair loss, a hair transplant or hair piece is the most effective option; however, for everyone else, PRP can stop the hair loss and result in 30% more hair growth, with new hair shafts as well as thicker hair. Not too shabby, is it?
PRP for hair rejuvenation is safe, quick, and there is no downtime! During the treatment, blood is drawn from your arm similar to a routine blood test. The tube of blood is then put into a machine called a centrifuge, which spins the blood at a high speed, separating the red blood cells, plasma, and platelets. After some preparation of the sample, the platelet rich plasma is taken from the tube and put into a few syringes and then injected into your scalp in the places where hair loss is prominent. Three to four treatments about four to six weeks a part are recommended, with some results that can be seen after just one treatment!
