Grow Back Your Hair with PRP Hair Rejuvenation
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a type of therapy that uses your own blood. It is a form of Regenerative medicine.
PRP was first developed in the 1970’s and first used in Italy in 1987 in an open heart surgery procedure. Since then, it has begun gaining popularity in the aesthetic and rejuvenation fields in Europe, Latin America and now in North America.
How Does PRP Hair Rejuvenation Work?
Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has lead different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.
Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for Hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth stage.
Schedule A Free PRP Hair Rejuvenation Consultation
A representative will get back to you within one business day to schedule your consultation.
Clients will have either a topical numbing cream applied to the desired area for approximately 45 minutes to an hour prior to the procedure or a nerve block. While the area is numbing, your blood will be drawn and the PRP will be processed. Before the procedure begins, the area is cleansed and the numbing cream is removed (if applied). Your provider will perform the micro-needling portion of the procedure first utilizing driving PRP into the small micro-channels that were created. After the micro-needling portion of the procedure is complete, the provider will then inject the PRP into the scalp in a grid-like fashion. Afterwards, your hair is cleansed and you can drive home without any assistance since no sedation or medication is given during the procedure. Post-treatment restrictions are minimal and are limited to at-home care.
How Does It Rejuvenate Hair?
- Increases blood supply to the follicle
- Increases shaft size (thickness)
- Triggers and maintains the growth phase
- Controls hair growth cycle
- Decreases hair loss
It is normal to experience bruising, redness, itching, swelling and/or soreness that may last from 2-5 days following your procedure. If you experience any pain or discomfort you may take Tylenol or other Acetaminophen-containing products as directed.
Minimal downtime, if any, is needed. I personally recommend a warm shower, as the hot temperature will enhance blood flow and circulation throughout the scalp. This means going a day (or two) without your typical hair maintenance (coloring, processing, blow-drying, etc.).
We would prefer if you could refrain from applying ice to the injured area as ice acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
What Can I Expect For The Results
Consistency is the key if you want to have the best results. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first three months for men and approximately four months for women. Then, every three to six months thereafter, depending on the individual patient’s response and results. Following this protocol, anticipated results can first be seen within two to three months.
Who Is A Candidate?
Both men and women who are concerned with loss or thinning hair and who want to consider an alternative treatment that is aggressive but non-surgical. With PRP, there is little to no down-time. Anyone experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP treatments, but those with early hair loss tend to respond best.
Can I Continue Other Medical Therapies With PRP?
Absolutely! We also recommend continuing FDA approved products such as Minoxidil and DHT blockers as previously. Think of it as cross fit training and you are using multiple modalities to get the desired results.
