One of the most powerful healing forces in the world is actually your own blood. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is one way we can harness that healing power. Full of growth factors, proteins, and white blood cells, PRP is fully capable of healing your cells and tissue. In fact, when your body is injured, it is PRP that surges to the area in order to heal it. If you are dealing with thinning hair, you may be wondering if PRP for hair loss is right for you.
The Basics of PRP for Hair Loss
PRP for hair loss is a state-of-the-art treatment that uses your very own PRP, gathered through a blood draw and separated by the use of a centrifuge, to help your scalp and hair follicles heal fully so that they are able to grow healthy hair again. PRP stimulates your scalp to produce new epidermal and hair cells, and after a series of treatments, you should see a noticeable difference in the strength, condition, and fullness of your hair.
What are the Benefits?
PRP therapy has many benefits that puts it heads above other traditional hair loss procedures. Most patients will make good candidates for this procedure. Yet if you have been diagnosed with any blood disorder or have liver problems, you may not be a candidate for PRP for hair loss. However, we will talk through the entire PRP treatment, your medical history, and how this treatment can benefit you.
Regrow Your Own Hair
The first and best benefit of PRP for hair loss is that its purpose is encouraging your hair follicles to produce hair. That means you will have your own hair to wash and style again. There are no hair grafts, hair implants, spray-on hair products, or toupees involved. PRP for hair loss is the perfect treatment for those who want their natural hair back in a completely natural way.
Non-Surgical and No Downtime
With PRP for hair loss, there is no set downtime. Most people just go about their day after we’re done with the treatment. Other hair loss treatments will leave you with incisions that then lead to scars, but PRP for hair loss is a non-surgical, simple procedure.
High Success Rate
Another benefit of PRP for hair loss is that it has a high success rate. Many studies have shown that PRP for hair loss increases the number of working hair follicles and decreases hair loss in both men and women. PRP treatment is a long-lasting solution to hair loss and is proving to help the majority of patients who undergo a series of treatments.
