Platelet-Rich-Plasma Hair Restoration — The Non-Surgical Alternative
Hair loss effects both men and women and is completely normal and part of the aging process. Some other factors can influence the rate that hair loss occurs, such as genetic predispositions of the person, alopecia areata, and even severe stress. Hair restoration with platelet-rich plasma is a virtually painless, cutting-edge procedure that is used for patients who do not want surgery. The results are amazing.
What is Platelet-Rich-Plasma?
Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) hair restoration is a new, non-surgical treatment that uses cell growth factors to regenerate and restore the inactive hair follicle through wound-healing technology. These specific growth factors are essential in tissue regeneration and healing. PRP is used in other practices as well, such as oral surgery, orthopedics, and dermatological applications.
How Is The Procedure Done?
PRP is obtained by drawing the patient’s own blood, just like it is done during a routine blood test. It is then separated using a centrifuge. While the blood is being prepared, the patient’s scalp will be numbed with a topical anesthetic cream to make the treatment virtually painless. Once the serum is isolated, it will be strategically injected into the scalp where hair loss or hair thinning has occurred. It may also be combined with microneedling therapy using a micropen. When the procedure is over, the patient can leave and immediately go back to their normal daily activities.
The hair follicles treated with PRP will immediately be reinvigorated and begin to grow new hair. The hair will strengthen and become thicker. Hair growth is a slower process, and results can be seen within three to six months.
