PRP For Hairloss
PRP Therapy Restores a Fuller, Thicker Head of Hair Without Sugery
Hair loss is very common in both men and women and can cause a decline in self-confidence as the issue gets worse. While many individuals may believe that their only option for hair restoration is invasive procedures, however, that is not the case. PRP therapy for hair restoration is a non-surgical treatment option that can help to naturally restore a thicker head of hair.
- PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is blood plasma enriched with platelets.
- PRP therapy for hair restoration is non-surgical and minimally-invasive.
- PRP therapy for hair restoration is completely natural.
- There is no downtime, stitches, or scarring involved.
- Three treatments scheduled six weeks apart are needed to see optimal results.
Why Patients Choose PRP Therapy for Hair Restoration
Nobody wants to have to deal with unwanted hair loss, and many patients do not want to opt for surgical or invasive hair restoration procedures. PRP therapy for hair restoration is a great, natural option for those individuals, and is also very convenient in that it requires no downtime. Both men and women can benefit from PRP therapy for hair restoration, and almost anyone is a candidate, since the treatment is completely natural. However, those who have a history of heavy smoking, drug, or alcohol use, or those with certain medical diagnosis should not undergo PRP therapy treatments. A consultation at our office is the best way to determine if this treatment option is right for you.
How It Works
PRP therapy uses the patient’s natural blood plasma enriched with platelets to stimulate hair growth. This platelet-rich plasma is packed full of growth factors, which saturate the hair roots, nourishing the hair follicles for improved growth.
Your Customized PRP Therapy for Hair Restoration Treatment
At Crabtree Plastic Surgery, we will develop a personalized treatment plan to meet your unique concerns and aesthetic goals. When it comes to treating your hair loss with PRP therapy, your treatment plan will depend on where the hair loss occurs and the severity of the hair loss.
During your PRP therapy for hair loss restoration treatment, blood will be drawn from your arm, just like a routine blood test. Then, the blood will be placed in a sterile centrifuge which will spin the blood to separate the platelet-rich plasma. A topical anesthetic will then be applied to the scalp to ensure a comfortable treatment, and the highly concentrated PRP will be injected into the treatment areas. There is no downtime required after treatment, so you can return to your everyday activities right away.
- You may wash your hair right after treatment.
- Mild redness or inflammation of the scalp may be present for a few hours after treatment.
- Harsh chemical hair coloring treatments should be avoided for at least 72 hours.
- Yearly treatments can help to maintain hair growth results.
Your PRP Therapy for Hair Restoration Results
PRP hair restoration results are gradual, and visual results can usually be seen after 6-12 months. There are not many restrictions to what activities you can take part in following treatment, which makes it a great option for those with busy or active lifestyles. Once ideal results are achieved, it is recommended that patients receive a yearly treatment to maintain results.
