Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an effective treatment for hair regrowth and provides results with a natural appearance. This treatment is completely natural, non-surgical and appropriate for both women and men. The procedure is used for the treatment of both hair thinning and hair loss. The active growth factors from the blood of the individual are used for the stimulation of hair growth. This results in a healthy, natural and much fuller head of hair.
The best possible candidates are men and women experiencing either acute hair loss or chronic hair loss. When the individual has a weak growth of hair on their scalp and there are still hair follicles functioning, they usually see the best results. If there has been balding for a long period of time or shiny bald areas are present, the treatment is generally not as effective. The majority of individuals can begin to see a difference in the months that follow the treatment.
Prior to each PRP treatment for hair restoration, photographs may be taken. This enables the progress to be accurately tracked. Once the initial treatment sessions have been completed, most individuals require a maintenance treatment as needed. Numerous reports have been published stating that this treatment improves hair growth and hair caliber for weeks to months. This is the reason additional treatments may be necessary.
The PRP hair regrowth procedure begins when a small blood sample is taken from the individual. A centrifuge is then used to spin the blood. This is what separates the platelets or the reparative cells from the other components contained within the blood. This includes red blood cells. There is a highly-concentrated amount of platelet-rich plasma contained in the blood. This releases growth proteins essential for hair regrowth. PRP hair therapy is effective for triggering hair growth when used alone, but it can also be combined with other treatments.
The procedure is performed in the office and does not require surgery. The blood is taken from the individual, so there is no chance of an allergic reaction. Once the treatment area has been identified, measured and evaluated, a customized treatment plan can be made.
