PRP Hair Restoration Treatment
For Hair Loss or Hair Thinning
What Causes Hair Thinning and Hair Loss ?
For a lot of men and women there is a strong genetic predisposition. There’s no doubt that aging definitely worsens hair thinning and hair loss for men and women. A large part of the reason why hair thinning and hair loss worsens with aging is because of the decline of self-production of hormones and other hormone-like molecules that happens with aging. Another part of the reason why hair thinning and hair loss worsens with aging is because of the decline of stem cells in the scalp tissue. Aging also usually coincides with the deterioration of cardiovascular function, meaning not as great blood flow to the tissue of the scalp. For some men and women stress is a major cause of hair thinning and hair loss. We have also during the last couple of years seen a lot of patients come in with hair loss after recovering from severe infection with COVID-19.
In all of these, there’s a lot that we can do to help to prevent hair thinning and hair loss, and even to help reverse hair thinning and hair loss.
What is PRP Hair Restoration Treatment?
This is one of the additional approaches we offer for preventing and reversing hair thinning and hair loss in men and women. The treatment involves using platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is derived from drawing your blood and then processing it using tools and equipment to create a solution that’s very concentrated with platelets and all of their potent regenerative factors.
It all starts with the PRP. Not all PRP is created equal. Our processing protocol results in the highest concentration of platelets and their regenerative factors in the regenerative medicine industry. In general, our concentrations are three to five times greater than that of our competitors.
We then carefully administer the PRP in a certain manner into areas of your scalp where you’re experiencing hair loss.
Lastly, we use a proprietary micro-injection technique throughout the regions of the scalp to draw the regenerative factors to where the regenerative effects are desired.
Who Does it Work the Best For ?
This treatment works well to address all of the reasons for hair thinning and hair loss that are mentioned above. This treatment works best for patients who want to prevent further hair thinning or hair loss. It also works well for patients who have recently suffered from thinning or loss of hair. It doesn’t work well to restore hair on regions of the scalp where the hair has already been completely lost for more than several months.
How Many Treatments Will I Need ?
It depends on a patient’s current hair and what their hair goals are. For most patients, for best results, we recommend that patients initially schedule 3 – 5 consecutive treatments, with each treatment scheduled 6 – 8 weeks after the prior treatment. For some patients, we recommend that they continue to schedule additional treatments about every 6 – 8 weeks until they experience their desired results.
We are a holistically-minded clinic, so for those who need it, we are able to combine the PRP hair restoration treatment with a holistic and customized treatment plan to aim for more results.
