Thinning hair is an issue that can disrupt the lives of both men and women. As medicine advances, new techniques for hair loss treatment are developed. PRP therapy, an option available to those who qualify, is very promising. There are many benefits and very few of the downsides that go along with other treatment options. Read on to discover if this is the right treatment option for you.
How Does PRP Hair Loss Treatment Work?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This powerful liquid is harvested from your own blood, making the risk of an allergic reaction incredibly small. The process simply involves a small blood draw. This blood then has the PRP removed by spinning it in a centrifuge. This can be done right here in our office. The pure platelet-rich plasma is then strategically injected into the scalp where it will stimulate hair follicles.
What are the Benefits of PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
There are many reasons to consider this form of hair loss treatment if you have been struggling with thinning hair. Some of the top benefits of this treatment include:
- It has proven to be highly effective: The growth factors found in platelet-rich plasma are great for stimulating hair follicles. Most people see visible improvements after just months. Please note that it typically requires multiple sessions to see results. Once satisfactory results have been reached, maintenance treatments are recommended as needed.
- There is no recovery period: Since it is non-surgical and requires just a small blood draw, this form of hair loss treatment will not result in any downtime.
- There is little to no discomfort: Again, thanks to the lack of surgery, this is a very tolerable procedure. It takes only a small amount of your blood and simple injections to successfully complete a treatment session.
- The sessions are quick and easy: Most of your time in the office is spent doing preparation for the injections. The actual injections take only minutes to complete, and then you are on your way.
