How PRP Hair Restoration Can Restore More Than Just Your Hair

When you look in the mirror at your thinning hair, it can undermine your confidence. You may not have the ambition and drive to head out of your house and seize the day, and you may start to shy away from social situations due to your low self confidence when it comes to you hair. You long for your hair to start growing again. For years, there have been many options available for those with thinning hair, which involved hair transplants or medications. Now, there is an new option: PRP hair restoration.

PRP hair restoration is an effective way to enhance the quality of your hair. PRP injections encourage natural hair growth without the need for medications or hair transplants. Platelet-rich plasma injections are created using a concentrated fluid that is taken from your own blood, which is flowing with essential proteins and growth factors.

PRP hair restoration may be a good option for you if:

  • You recently began experiencing hair loss and thinning.
  • You have thinning or “wispy” hair..
  • Your hair loss is due to a sudden illness or stress.

PRP hair restoration may not be a good choice for you if:

  • You suffer from lupus, liver disease, skin diseases or cancers, or thyroid disease.
  • You’ve recently taken a blood thinner.
  • Your hair loss seems to be genetic.

During a PRP hair restoration session, a trained professional will draw blood from your arm and put it inside of a centrifuge and spin it in order to separate it into three parts: red blood cells, platelet rich plasma, and platelet poor plasma. The Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, will be used for your treatment. The professional will then numb you scalp in the area that is receiving the treatment, and may even offer you a bit of laughing as for added comfort during the procedure. The professional then injects the PRP into you skin, exactly at the level of your hair follicles. A microneedling device may be used during certain sessions.

PRP hair restoration is considered very low when it comes to medical risk, and is less costly than hair transplant procedures. While PRP procedures are fairly new when it comes to medical hair regrowth options, it has proven to be an effective choice. Most patients see results within three to six month of treatment Sex, age, blood flow, and hormonal balance all play a part when it comes to results. Treatment is recommended every four to six months for continuous results.

PRP treatment has little to no side effects that have been reported. Although, some patients do experience slight reactions to the numbing agent used or a slight pain during treatment. There is no down time after a session. While there may be a bit of discomfort at the injection sight, you can still go about your daily routine after leaving the office. Warm showers help to increase blood flow to the area, and could assist in the regrowth process. Avoid washing your hair for a day or two after treatment.
