You’re not quite ready to give up on your thin or balding hair. However, you also don’t want to go through a lengthy, invasive hair loss treatment either. If you’re looking to change your look and improve the quality and quantity of your hair, then PRP hair restoration could be the ideal treatment for you.
What Is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is the part of your blood that contains disc-like cells called platelets. These platelets are capable of healing and renewing cells and tissue in the body. The reason for this is because they are made up of proteins called growth factors and cytokines, which are primarily responsible for doing the healing work for the body.
How Is PRP Hair Restoration Performed?
PRP hair restoration treatments use a concentrated dose of your own PRP in order to initiate the healing process in the body. This simple treatment will begin with a routine blood draw. Your sample is then placed into a centrifuge that is able to separate the different elements of your blood. This allows us to extract your PRP from the rest of your blood. With your PRP, we will create a serum, which will be able to be injected straight into your scalp.
How Does PRP Prompt Hair Restoration?
Because PRP is full of those growth factors and cytokines, when it is injected into the targeted areas of your scalp where are experiencing hair thinning or loss, it will heal the root cause of your hair problems: your hair follicles. Your dormant, damaged, or malfunctioning hair follicles with be flushed with cell rejuvenating PRP, which will heal them so that they will be capable of producing hair like they once did.
Is There Downtime with PRP Hair Restoration?
No, our PRP treatments are non-surgical and minimally-invasive. Unlike other hair loss treatments that require incisions, hair grafts, and other painful treatment methods, PRP is nothing more than one blood draw and a series of injections. The entire treatment should take no longer than one hour. Most of our patients have their PRP treatment done and then resume their normal activities right away. There are also no side effects associated with PRP for hair restoration, and as we use only your own natural PRP, there is no risk of any type of allergic reaction.
