Hair Restoration With PRP
PRP uses the body’s innate healing mechanisms to encourage the regrowth of hair. PRP can be used to restore hair loss that is due to a variety of different causes.
PRP is a great hair restoration option for those who have:
- Traction Alopecia – hair that has been lost due to tight hairstyles
- Hereditary Pattern Baldness – Female patterned baldness and male patterned baldness
- Alopecia Areata – hair loss due to an autoimmune disorder
- Hair that doesn’t grow back after medical treatments such as chemotherapy
- Those who didn’t have success regrowth serums like Finasteride or Minoxidil
How Does PRP Help Restore Your Hair After Hair Loss Has Occurred?
PRP is extracted from the patient’s own blood. A small blood sample is drawn from the patient. This blood sample then undergoes a centrifuging process, where it is spun at a high rate until the red blood cells and plasma separate.
The plasma is turned into PRP injections and micro-needled into the scalp. The platelets and growth factors in the plasma go to work stimulating and the regrowth of new hair.
Plasma contains platelets. Platelets are one of the body’s powerful healing mechanisms. When an injury occurs, the body signals plasma to rush to the area of injury. The platelets, within the plasma, then go to work, clotting the blood and stopping bleeding.
The same principle helps for hair regrowth. Plasma stimulates the hair regrowth cycle, speeding growth and encouraging blood supply to damaged hair follicles. Plasma helps thicken thinning hair and revives dormant hair follicles.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling a process that is used to administer PRP. Microneedling is done with a specially designed tool that uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin with PRP. Many patients report only minor discomfort after microneedling, explaining that it is similar to the feeling of a sunburn. There is no recovery time needed after receiving microneedling, and you will be able to go about your daily activities.
A 2018 study*, investigating PRP and its effectiveness in re-growing thinning hair in sufferers of Androgenetic alopecia (AGA,) showed promising results in reversing thinning hair. The study also showed that PRP is a safe procedure with little side effects and minimal recovery time.
