You may have heard of procedures that use an individual’s own blood to stimulate healthy skin growth. The same process is now being incorporated into a hair growth treatment that we call PRP hair loss restoration. Those with thinning or patterned baldness can get a kickstart on regrowth merely by using the proteins and other growth factors in blood platelets. This powerful substance can reactivate resting or inactive follicles. At Le Beau Visage Med Spa, we want to help you restore your hair growth. We warmly invite you to learn more about how platelet-rich plasma (PRP) works to promote hair growth.
How Blood Can Help Your Hair Follicles
Blood is basically composed of plasma and red cells. The plasma contains white cells, antibodies, and platelets. The platelets are very sensitive to oxygen, and when they come into contact with air, they form a mesh that eventually becomes a clot. This is what stops the bleeding when we cut ourselves. The platelets also contain a number of important growth factors that act as signaling mechanisms for cellular growth and tissue reproduction. This allows our bodies to heal faster, specifically the healing of damaged cells.
When concentrated in a small amount of plasma and injected into the scalp in areas where follicles are inactive, the platelets aid in the process of reactivating the follicles. Hair strands are long strings of dead cells that are produced in the follicle, but when the follicle goes into a resting state, the hair strand falls out. This is normal and happens all the time. However, if the follicle remains in a resting phase, a new hair strand doesn’t form. PRP hair loss restoration can bring these follicles back life, so to speak.
Consultation and Treatment
When we consult with the client, we ask questions about medical history and if the hair loss has been identified as patterned or total. We examine the scalp carefully and look closely at the healthy hairs that grow in the adjacent areas. From there, a customized treatment schedule may be planned.
