Our PRP Hair Restoration treatment is one of our most popular treatments because it uses the natural powers of the body to restore and improve the appearance, growth, and quality of your hair.
PRP Hair Restoration Treatments
What Are They?
To understand what PRP Hair Restoration is, you first need to understand what PRP is. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and is derived from the blood through a specialized process. It contains growth factors, which is what makes it so effective. It is used in the cosmetic world to both improve the quality of the skin and stimulate hair follicles so that your hair grows thicker and faster.
It was originally used by dentists during dental treatments to treat patients’ gums since platelets can seal injuries. In the medical world, it is used in injectable form and is administered into areas experiencing joint pain, muscular injuries, and even arthritis. Platelet-rich plasma can be used to treat areas throughout the entire body for different concerns.
How Do They Work?
To begin this treatment, you will undergo a standard blood draw. Only a few tablespoons are necessary to effectively perform the treatment. Your blood will then be placed into a vile which will be put into a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge will spin the blood for a set amount of time to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood, also known as the plasma.
The growth factors within the PRP will be removed from the blood and they will then be used to stimulate hair growth on the scalp. There are different methods used to apply the PRP to the scalp, including injections in different treatment areas to stimulate hair growth. PRP requires a perceived injury to unlock all of its benefits, which is why it works best when administered through injections or with microneedling.
What Do They Treat?
PRP hair restoration treatments treat hair thinning, hair loss, and receding hairlines in both men and women. It regenerates the area where the plasma is applied, and in this case, it is the hair. Specifically, PRP Hair Restoration treatments can treat:
- Hair loss
- Patchy hair loss
- Thinning hair
- Frontal baldness
- Male pattern baldness
As an added benefit, this treatment will:
- Increase your blood vessels
- Increase collagen in the treatment area
- Increase skin elasticity
What Happens During Treatment?
Your treatment will begin with the blood draw, and then you’ll wait as your PRP is prepared. The PRP will then be injected or applied to the pre-discussed area treatment that you decided upon during your initial consultation.
How Many Treatments Will I Need To See Results?
Some people may see benefits after one treatment, but the best results typically come from a series of treatments over a few months. During your initial consultation, we will develop a treatment plan that is right for you and will get you the best results possible. The treatment plan that generates the most results includes four treatments over the course of four months for a total of 90% hair regrowth.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Hair growth takes time and anyone who has ever tried to grow their hair knows that it can feel painfully slow sometimes. It will take several weeks for you to notice results since your hair will begin to grow once the hair follicles are stimulated during your treatment. One way to measure results is to take before pictures and mid-progress pictures so that you can compare how your hair looked pre-treatment to how it looks after your treatments.
Is It Safe?
This is one of the safest treatments because the primary and only ingredient used is taken directly from your body. There is no risk of an adverse reaction, which makes it a feasible option for almost anyone who has experienced hair thinning or hair loss. It does not use harsh chemicals or irritating ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction.
This treatment is completely safe and very effective. We use a single-use kit to perform this treatment that is opened up while we are there with you in the room. Everything is kept sterile and clean during the treatment. You can rest assured that we take every safety precaution imaginable during treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
Your results will last for several months to a year post-treatment, and when you are ready for a touch-up treatment, all you have to do is come back to once again experience all of this treatment has to offer.
Who Is a Candidate for Treatment?
Both men and women are candidates for this treatment. Both will experience all that PRP hair restoration treatments have to offer and will love their results that they have not been able to get from hair products alone.
Both genetics and the aging process can affect men’s hairlines and their overall hair quality. If you have a receding hairline or your hair is thinning and making you feel self-conscious, this is a treatment that can help restore what the aging process has taken and make you feel more confident in your appearance.
Hormonal fluctuations that occur during and after pregnancy can wreak havoc on the hair. Women who have gone through one or more pregnancies know all too well about the hair loss and the slow regrowth that follows. This treatment can help women during the postpartum months to improve the quality of their hair in both length and thickness.
Age also affects women’s hair and can lead to a receding hairline and even balding in certain areas, as well as thinning hair. This treatment can help women who have experienced the effects of aging on their hair to restore what the aging process has taken.
