There are several different hair loss treatments out there, and it can be difficult to figure out which one is right for you. PRP is an all-natural hair loss treatment that can help restore hair follicles and encourage hair growth. Below you will find a helpful guide that explains what exactly PRP is and who is a candidate for this procedure.
What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a hair loss treatment that harnesses the power of your own blood. The procedure begins with a routine blood draw. From there, your blood is placed in a centrifuge, which separates its different components. We then will take your platelet-rich plasma that is full of white blood cells and growth factors and create an injectable serum.
PRP for Hair Loss
Because the PRP serum is full of proteins called growth factors, it is able to rejuvenate your scalp and hair follicles. Basically, PRP supercharges those malfunctioning hair follicles and will prompt them to begin growing hair once again. We will target the areas of your scalp where you are experiencing hair loss.
The great benefits of PRP are that it is an all-natural treatment, and there is no risk of allergic reactions. It is also completely non-invasive, and you won’t have to deal with any side effects or scars. You will see results within three months, and as you are growing your own hair, your results will continue to improve. We also recommend having PRP done once a year after your first initial treatments in order to maintain your results.
Are You a Candidate for PRP?
PRP for hair loss is especially effective in treating alopecia, which is an autoimmune disease that causes bald spots. Studies have proven that PRP can help regrow the hair loss caused by alopecia better than steroid injections.
PRP can also treat areas that have functioning hair follicles but still have weak hair growth. If you are only now just beginning to notice hair loss, then PRP can be used a preventive treatment to stop hair loss and help regrow the hair that you’ve already lost.
PRP can also be combined with other hair loss treatments, including hair transplant procedures in order to achieve twice the benefits.
