Natural Hair Rejuvenation.
Hair PRP therapy is an innovative, all-natural treatment for thinning hair in men and women. This simple, non-surgical procedure is increasingly being recognized as a great, safe, clinically tested treatment for hair rejuvenation.
Using platelet rich plasma drawn from the patient, hair PRP therapy is completely natural and has no observed side effects. A great treatment for androgenic hair loss, hair platelet rich plasma therapy is also effective against many other forms of premature hair loss and thinning in both men and women.
Derived from whole blood, Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a concentrated platelet rich plasma protein, with red blood cells extracted via centrifuge. PRP has superior growth factors to whole blood and is widely used for it’s healing properties. Because of this, PRP is increasingly popular among plastic surgeons, dentists, dermatologists and other health care professionals.
PRP contains cytokines that can stimulate healing of joints and soft tissue and is beneficial for both sports medicine and dermatology. It is an effective, concentrated source of blood plasma and autologous conditioned plasma.
Hair PRP Therapy promotes hair growth and rejuvenation by using the growth factors found in plasma proteins to interact with and stimulate stem cells within hair follicles.
Hair PRP therapy is a multi-stage process. The first stage of the treatment involves drawing blood from the patient, and then using a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma is then extracted from the blood. Next, a trained professional will inject the collected plasma into the area of the patients scalp where hair loss has occurred. Each PRP session consists of multiple injections, and typically lasts for one hour.
Safe and side effect free, hair PRP therapy is perfect for men and women who have experienced natural thinning and early hair loss. The treatment is also ideal for people who suffer from location-based hair loss around the temples and crown. Though hair loss and thinning disproportionately impacts men, women tend to be more proactive when combatting thinning hair. Hair PRP treatment works for both genders.
The most prominent results were observed in patients suffering from early hair loss.
Hair PRP is safe and effective, but it is primarily cosmetic in nature. Patients with serious medical conditions are advised to avoid PRP therapy, particularly if they are currently undergoing medical treatments that impact hair growth, such as chemotherapy.
It can take up to three months for PRP therapy to show results visually, but the behind the scenes work starts immediately.
Recovery and recuperation after your PRP treatment is typically a simple, painless process. There have been no serious side effects reported regarding hair PRP therapy, but some patients have reported mild inflammation, redness and a numbness on the scalp following their session. All three conditions will go away on their own within hours.
Patients are advised to refrain from visiting saunas and steam rooms while in treatment and should not rinse their hair until at least six hours have passed. Coloring and perming should not be avoided for at least a week.
