Some contend with a receding hairline for years, while others notice sudden bald spots at the crown of their head. Hair loss and thinning is a problem that both men and women deal with; however, there is a solution that is perfect for everyone: PRP therapy. This hair restoration option is able to treat hair loss and thinning in men and women.
How Does It Work?
PRP works in a very simple and all-natural way by utilizing the healing ability of your blood in order to restore the body. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is the element of your blood that is activated when the body is in need of healing. Platelet-rich plasma contains powerful white blood cells and most importantly, proteins called growth factors. Along with your white blood cells, it is these proteins that heal cells and regenerate tissue when it is damaged.
A Treatment for Hair Loss and Thinning
PRP therapy uses only a highly-concentrated serum of your very own PRP to achieve results. The PRP procedure requires a small blood sample, which we will put into a centrifuge in order to separate and extract your PRP from the rest of your blood. Then, we will inject your PRP serum into the target areas of your scalp.
PRP for hair restoration works by rejuvenating your hair follicles, cells, and tissue. The influx of PRP will heal those damaged or non-producing hair follicles, thus encouraging normal, healthy hair growth once again.
The procedure is wholly non-invasive and doesn’t require any hair grafts, sutures, or donor scalps. The entire procedure consists of nothing more than a blood draw and injections. There is no downtime and no side effects. You can have the procedure done in our office and then get back to your life with no discomfort and no visible signs of the treatment.
Am I Candidate?
Yes, most likely, you will make an excellent candidate for PRP therapy. If you suffer from alopecia, are in the early stages of hair loss, have bald spots, or generally weak hair growth, then PRP therapy is right for you. However, PRP therapy is not recommended for anyone who has been diagnosed with blood clots, blood disorders, or liver disorders.
