There are various reason a patient may experience hair loss or thinning. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma therapy may be an answer to the problem. A procedure can be performed using platelet-rich plasma to treat this thinning and restore hair growth for both men and women.
PRP therapy is used to get natural-looking results to regrow your own hair. PRP hair augmentation utilizes a fine needed to inject plasma from your own blood into the scalp. The growth factors in this plasma stimulates hair growth. Many experience remarkable results where other treatment failed since this procedure uses the patient’s own growth stimulants to promote fuller, healthier hair.
After a consultation with the physician, a clinician will draw the patient’s blood and spin it down using a centrifuge. The platelet-rich plasma will be separated and drawn into vials to utilize during treatment. After a topical anesthetic is applied, the treating clinician will inject the platelet-rich plasma into the areas in the scalp where desired regrowth is needed.
The recommended treatment includes a series of three treatments followed by maintenance every 3 to 6 months to reach the full potential of hair regrowth. Anyone who is experiencing hair thinning is a good candidate for this procedure. Since the treatment uses your own body’s naturally-occurring growth stimulant, there are few side effects.
This treatment can also be used on eyebrows to promote fuller, thicker regrowth. As we age, eyebrows can naturally become thinner, stealing the youthful appearance that is associated with thicker brows. With the use of platelet-rich plasma treatments, men and women can undergo this procedure to encourage natural regrowth.
This is not a permanent treatment. Maintenance is required to keep the hair in its regrowth phase. Without continued treatment, hair will return to its baseline. However, most patients are known to have remarkable results and opt to continue with treatment every 3 to 6 months to maintain their thicker, fuller hair. Platelet-rich plasma treatments are safe and effective, utilizing your own body’s growth factors to boost a younger-looking appearance.
