PRP HAIR RESTORATION

PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, involves extracting a sample of the patient's blood, removing red blood cells, and enriching the remaining plasma with platelets. This concentrated plasma, containing increased platelet levels by up to 300-700 percent, is then injected into specific areas of the body requiring healing.

BENEFITS OF PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY

Platelets aid in stopping bleeding and promoting cell health, making PRP a sought-after method for injury recovery. Research has explored its effectiveness in various conditions, including tennis elbow, nerve damage, osteoarthritis, and chronic pain, indicating it as a safe, effective, and cost-efficient healing source.

Originally utilized in Hematology for treating thrombocytopenia, PRP has evolved into a popular treatment across diverse medical fields due to its ability to accelerate wound healing and tissue restoration. It contains numerous growth factors and cytokines essential for tissue regeneration. PRP preparation typically involves collecting a blood sample from the patient, centrifuging it to separate components, and utilizing commercial kits to customize platelet concentrations and presence of other components, impacting growth factors' concentration and thus clinical benefits. PRP treatment typically involves several stages: an initial assessment to evaluate the condition and plan the treatment, followed by PRP preparation where blood is extracted and processed, and finally, injections into the targeted areas, often followed by a massage to ensure even distribution. Post-treatment, patients may experience mild bruising or swelling but can resume normal activities without significant disruption.PRP hair loss treatment targets individuals suffering from alopecia, offering a safe and effective solution. The procedure stimulates hair follicles through cell growth promotion, leading to increased hair density and quality. Unlike other hair restoration methods, PRP poses minimal health risks and is more cost-effective, making it a promising option for individuals seeking hair restoration without the drawbacks associated with alternative treatments.

WHAT IS PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from the patient's blood sample, wherein red blood cells are separated and the remaining plasma is enriched with platelets. This process results in a substantial increase in platelet concentration, ranging from 300 to 700 percent, achieving a final count of over 1 million platelets per milliliter of plasma. The enriched platelets are then administered via injection to the targeted areas of the patient's body requiring healing.

PRP has garnered significant attention for its potential in injury recovery due to the platelets' role in blood clotting and cell regeneration. Extensive research has explored its effectiveness in treating various conditions such as tennis elbow, nerve damage, osteoarthritis, and chronic pain. While specific outcomes vary depending on the condition treated, the collective evidence strongly indicates that PRP serves as a safe, efficacious, and cost-effective approach to promoting healing.

HOW CAN PRP TREAT HAIR LOSS

Due to its capacity to stimulate cell growth, researchers theorized that applying PRP to areas of the scalp experiencing balding could activate hair follicles, potentially promoting hair regrowth in areas of loss and reinforcing thinning hair.
 

Recent studies on PRP have highlighted its significant positive impact on hair growth. A study conducted in 2015 revealed that male patients observed a remarkable increase of 45.9 hairs per centimeter in total hair density after just three PRP treatments. Similarly, a 2017 study demonstrated comparable results among female patients with androgenic alopecia. Furthermore, a 2017 review of PRP research concerning hair loss confirmed enhancements in both hair quality and density, indicating PRP's efficacy as a viable solution for hair loss in both genders.

BEYOND ITS EFFECTIVENESS, PRP TREATMENTS OFFER ADVANTAGES OVER OTHER HAIR RESTORATION METHODS, INCLUDING

REDUCED RISK OF HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS

Unlike some hair restoration techniques that carry significant health risks, such as bleeding, scarring, and infections associated with hair transplants, or potential cardiovascular complications and increased prostate cancer risk linked to medications like minoxidil and finasteride, PRP studies have reported minimal negative side effects.

LOWER COSTS

Hair restoration procedures are often financially burdensome, with hair transplants ranging from $4,000 to $15,000, depending on the extent of hair replacement. In contrast, PRP treatments typically cost less than $3000 in total.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING PRP TREATMENT

Our PRP services encompass the following stages:

INITIAL ASSESSMENT

Your journey begins with a consultation with one of our providers. During this session, the provider will evaluate the cause and extent of your hair loss, devise a personalized treatment plan, and schedule your initial treatment session.

TREATMENT OUTLINE

Upon your return for treatment, the provider will delineate the specific area of your scalp requiring attention. Prior to injections, a numbing cream will be applied to ensure your comfort.

PRP PREPARATION

A sample of your blood will be extracted, and it will undergo the PRP preparation process, which typically takes approximately thirty minutes. During this time, you may opt for additional health and wellness treatments such as a facial or vitamin infusion.

PRP INJECTIONS

Utilizing a zimmer chiller for enhanced comfort, the PRP will be injected into the designated areas of your scalp.

FINAL MASSAGE

Following the injections, a gentle massage will be administered to evenly distribute the platelets across your scalp.

After the procedure, you may experience mild bruising or swelling in the treated areas, but these effects should not impede your daily activities or work commitments

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING PRP TREATMENT

Individuals experiencing alopecia and maintaining good overall health are typically suitable candidates for PRP hair restoration. Given the procedure's safety profile, there are relatively few contraindications. However, it is advised to refrain from PRP treatment if:

  • Blood clotting issues or other bleeding disorders are present.

  • Platelet counts in the blood are low.

  • Currently experiencing or have recently suffered from a blood infection.

  • Undergoing cortisone therapy.

  • Blood pressure remains chronically low or unstable.

  • Presently diagnosed with or have recently recovered from cancer.

Furthermore, individuals who smoke are not recommended for PRP hair restoration, as tobacco usage exacerbates many of these aforementioned conditions.
