Platelet-Rich Plasma For Hair Loss
PRP is one of the most effective and safest ways to restore hair follicles on the scalp and eye brows as well as preventing further hair loss or thinning. It may take a while for hair follicles to be completely activated. Patients typically see results anywhere from 4-6 months after treatment. PRP can regrow hair on men and women of all ages that suffer from hair loss from a medical condition, stress, or aging.
How It Works
A treating physician will start the treatment by painlessly drawing a small amount of blood from your arm. The blood is then centrifuged to isolate platelets from the rest of the blood. The concentrations of platelets are then injected into a treated area using a very fine needle to prevent discomfort. The procedure is quick (15 minutes total), relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events.
What to expect after the treatment
The procedure takes 30 minutes depending on amount of hair loss. Patients are advised not to take any anti-inflammatory medication since it may interfere in the natural healing process of PRP. Patients generally have to receive this treatment multiple times before they can see any results. PRP does not pose any danger of allergy, hypersensitivity, or foreign-body reaction and it is a safe choice for many patients.
PRP can be used to treat issues including but not limited to:
Hair loss from Alopecia, stress, or aging
Thinning hair from medical conditions, stress, or aging
