The Benefits of PRP for hair restoration

If you are struggling with hair loss, PRP hair restoration may be the solution for you.  PRP hair restoration is an innovative treatment for men and women with thinning hair.  But what are the benefits of PRP for hair restoration.  

What is PRP for hair restoration

PRP or platelet rich plasma is a preparation that is made from the patient’s own blood.  Blood contains platelets that stimulate tissue growth when used in high concentration. 

PRP involves collecting  a small sample of blood from the patient’s arm, and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets.  The PRP is then injected into the thinning areas of the scalp using a tiny needle.

PRP for  hair restoration is a minimally invasive procedure, so there is no downtime. Patients are typically able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment.   

When will I see results

Some hair growth will be noticeable about 3 months after treatment, but final results can take up to 1 year.

The Benefits of PRP for hair restoration

PRP is used in medicine to accelerate healing, because it contains potent growth factors. Since PRP uses a patient’s own blood there is very little risk of an allergic reaction to the treatment. 

When used for hair restoration, PRP has been found to stimulate the production of new cells, which helps to  increase the thickness of the hair and the strength of the hair root.  PRP therapy also extends the hair growth cycle. 

PRP hair restoration is especially beneficial for people experiencing androgenic alopecia, which is a common type of hair loss(learn more).

In this procedure blood is drawn from the patient in the same manner as a routine blood test. The blood is then spun through a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma from the rest of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the balding areas of the scalp.

Results of PRP hair therapy can usually be seen within 2 to 4 months. PRP therapy is often combined with hair transplant for best results.
