What Is PRP?

There are components in your blood that have healing properties. Specifically, your plasma contains platelets that are known for having high levels of beneficial growth factors. Utilized properly, these growth factors can revitalize the hair from the inside out. 

With a PRP treatment, our dermatologists and physicians draw a small amount of your blood in order to isolate and readminister the platelet-rich plasma. In addition to traditional PRP, we also offer PRFM. PRFM stands for platelet-rich fibrin matrix. This next-generation therapy has several advantages over classic PRP. PRFM has fibrin, which helps protect the beneficial platelets and maintain their integrity. This protein helps the platelets stay active in the treated area for days, thereby improving the results.

Additionally, the process of creating PRFM almost entirely removes the red and white blood cells that can cause mild irritation upon re-injection. Our team uses the cutting-edge Selphyl System to convert PRP to PRFM.

What is PRP hair restoration?

Hair loss and thinning can cause your self-confidence to plummet and may lead to a vicious cycle of stress that induces hair loss and hair loss that induces stress. Men and women both suffer from this problem, which can be the result of factors such as hormonal changes, genetics, and aging. Contrary to popular belief, hair thinning and loss doesn’t usually indicate that your hair follicles are gone. Instead, they are likely dormant, unable to move through the natural cycle of growth and regression. PRP is an excellent solution to this problem that can help people avoid less desirable approaches such as hair transplants or medication.

When injected into the scalp, PRP can produce new stem cells in the root of the hair follicles. This process essentially wakes up the follicles so that they start producing hair again. PRP also stimulates beneficial blood flow that can encourage normal hair growth.

What are the benefits of PRP hair restoration? 

You’ll experience a range of benefits from your PRP or PRFM treatment. Some of the advantages of this service include:

  • Repair and stimulation of the hair follicles
  • Boosted cell turnover
  • Promotion of new cell growth and healthy cell activity
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Increased hair growth, strength, and vibrancy
  • Short treatment sessions
  • No downtime

What causes hair loss? 

The average normal number of hairs lost each day ranges from 50-100. Since new hair is always growing, ordinary hair loss is not noticeable. When new hairs do not quickly replace those lost, the scalp may begin to look thinned out.

Hair loss may be connected to the following factors:

  • Heredity – This is the most common cause of hair loss. Men and women experience the condition with the aging process. 
  • Hormonal fluctuations – With pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause, hormonal levels may change, prompting temporary hair loss or shedding.
  • Certain medications – Cancer drugs and medications for depression, heart problems, arthritis, and hypertension can all play a role in compromising a healthy head of hair.
  • Radiation – The hair may not grow back properly after radiation to the scalp.
  • Stress – Too much stress can make the hair fall out. Severe emotional shock typically causes only temporary hair loss, however.
  • Certain hairstyles and hair treatments – Hair that is pulled too tightly or too often can cause traction alopecia. Perms and hot oil treatments may also negatively affect the scalp.
  • Infections and medical conditions – Hair loss may occur as a result of a thyroid condition or a poorly functioning immune system. Scalp infections, ringworm, and a mental disorder called trichotillomania can also be factors in hair loss.

Is Hair Loss and Thinning Bothering You?

What can I expect from my PRP hair restoration procedure? 

Every simple and safe PRP treatment starts with a blood draw. From there, our staff will place your blood in a centrifuge. This device spins the small vial of blood at a fast speed to separate the plasma from the unwanted cells. When it comes to improving hair loss, PRP can be injected in a similar manner as dermal fillers. This method is the most common way to administer PRP to the scalp.

Will there be any recovery or downtime? 

There is no downtime after a PRP session. You can return to your daily routine after your appointment, though you may want to take a day of social downtime. There is minimal risk of side effects since the process utilizes your blood. Most commonly, a PRP treatment may cause some mild swelling, redness, or bruising that will fade within a few days.

What can I expect from my results?

In most cases, multiple PRP treatments sessions are needed to achieve the best results. Your exact treatment plan will vary depending on the nature and degree of your hair loss pattern. Our team will let you know what you can expect during your in-person consultation.

For hair restoration, the typical PRP session frequency is one treatment a month for four or six months, depending on how well the hair responds. Typically, the best growth can be seen several months after your initial round of PRP appointments. From there, two maintenance sessions a year are usually enough to sustain the results.

PRP has a high patient satisfaction rate in our practice. Most people who undergo the treatment are very pleased with their results.
