PRP Hair Restoration
How Does PRP Regrow Hair?
PRP stimulates the hair by injecting specific growth factors that are derived from your own blood to regenerate and grow hair. PRP contains special cells called platelets, which can cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells around the hair follicle. This platelet-rich plasma promotes healing, accelerates the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, and promotes new cellular growth. It stimulates the hair follicles to grow and cause both the growth of new hair and the thickening of existing hairs.
Who’s a Good Candidate for PRP?
Prime PRP candidate if you have early-onset hair loss and want to prevent future hair loss. If you’re already bald or are hoping to treat an area that has no hair follicles, then PRP is not going to help. It can only restore and strengthen active follicles.
Can PRP Be Done in Place of Finasteride and Minoxidil?
Yes, it’s a good holistic approach for someone who doesn’t want to take medication for hair loss, and there are no side effects to putting your own plasma back into your body!
How Many PRP Treatments Are Needed, How Often & What’s a Good Long-Term PRP Plan?
The plan usually is four treatments of PRP, one month apart, and then an assessment three months later to see the success of the treatment plan. Before and after photographs will be taken to compare the effects of the hair growth. Then maintenance of the PRP injections will be discussed which can vary between three or more months.
