Hair Restoration With PRP
Both men and women suffer from hair loss or hair thinning at some point in their lives due to stress, environmental conditions, aging, or simply because of their genetics. Whatever the reason may be, it can affect one’s physical appearance as well as their self-confidence.
Luckily, with advanced hair restoration therapies such as PRP, you can restore the strength and volume of your hair naturally.
Read on to learn more about how PRP therapy works for hair loss.
How Does PRP Therapy Help With Hair Restoration?
PRP therapy for hair restoration is a non-surgical treatment in which platelet-rich plasma (PRP) containing certain growth factors is injected directly into the scalp. As a result, these growth factors trigger a series of healing responses that repair and renew the damaged hair follicles.
PRP therapy nourishes and rejuvenates your scalp at a cellular level, strengthening your hair, promoting new hair growth, and naturally increasing your hair volume.
What Happens During The Treatment?
PRP therapy for hair restoration is completed in two steps: extracting the PRP from your blood and then injecting it into the scalp.
During PRP extraction, a small sample of your blood is drawn and placed in a device called a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the different components of your blood such as platelets and plasma from other cells. The platelets extracted are then added back into the plasma to make platelet-rich plasma or PRP.
PRP is then injected into the area of concern using very fine needles. The procedure is quick, virtually painless, and can be completed within 30 to 45 minutes.
How Much Downtime Is Needed?
Unlike surgical procedures, PRP therapy for hair restoration doesn’t require any downtime so you can get back to your daily routine right after the procedure.
Additionally, healthy lifestyle choices such as eating a balanced diet and taking the right supplements can ensure and prolong even more promising results.
Is PRP Therapy Safe?
Since the plasma used is drawn from the patient’s own body, PRP injections reduce the risk of allergic reactions, infections, or rejection. However, it is important to ensure that the entire procedure is carried out in a sterile environment -and by qualified professionals.
How Many Treatments Do You Need?
The number of treatments required to achieve your desired goals depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to:
- Severity of the condition
- Pattern of hair loss
- Hormonal balance
Normally, PRP therapy for hair loss requires regular injections spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for 3 to 4 months. The initial results can be seen after 3 to 4 months of regular treatment sessions. Additionally, you might need maintenance sessions spaced 3 to 4 months apart for two years.
To achieve optimal results, you need to schedule regular follow-ups, along with maintaining a healthy lifestyle and practicing the right aftercare.
