Hair restoration with PRP
If you are seeing the early signs of hair loss, PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is an exciting development in hair restoration, available at The Center for Hair Restoration in Pittsburgh. This is a natural therapy in which the PRP is extracted from your own blood and then administered to the scalp to trigger natural healing and healthy hair growth. PRP can stimulate new hair growth by working with the body’s natural regenerative processes, warding off further hair loss by restoring health to hair follicles that have gone dormant, or are producing thinner, finer hairs.
Advanced natural hair regeneration treatment: PRP
PRP contains growth factors and cytokines (cells that signal the molecules that aid in cell communication to sites of inflammation, infection, or trauma). The healing factors in PRP work to stimulate hair follicles to restore and produce healthy hairs. PRP therapy can be combined with other hair restoration treatments, such as hair transplants, to aid in post-treatment healing and achieve a superior result.
What are the benefits of PRP therapy?
There are many benefits to PRP therapy for hair restoration, including:
- PRP can ward off the early signs of hair loss
- Could help you maintain thicker, healthier hair
- Can stimulate new hair growth
- No significant downtime
- Faster healing and improved results in hair transplant treatments
- No chance of rejection or side-effects
How does PRP work?
Platelet-rich plasma is separated from your own blood and injected into the areas of the scalp showing the early signs of balding. The growth factors in the platelet-rich plasma work to trigger the body’s natural regenerative processes. When injected into the scalp, hair follicles that are producing thinner, finer hairs or stopped producing hair can be restored.
Am I a candidate for hair restoration with PRP?
If you are experiencing the early signs of balding or excessive hair shedding and thinning, then PRP treatments might be the perfect solution for you.
Candidates for this regenerative treatment are:
- You are in good general health
- Experiencing the early signs of balding
- Experiencing excessive hair shedding
- See hair strands are becoming thinner, finer, and shorter
You should have realistic expectations for PRP therapy, as results can vary from person to person. Each patient responds slightly differently, but PRP hair restoration can be a powerful and effective single treatment, or additional treatment for a more comprehensive hair restoration procedure.
The PRP procedure
Hair restoration with PRP procedure involves taking a small sample of blood, as in a standard blood draw, with the blood processed in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. The PRP is then carefully injected into the scalp to areas where the follicles have become weak or dormant. Anesthetic is often applied to the scalp prior to the injections to make the treatment more comfortable.
Is there any downtime associated with PRP?
There is no downtime associated with PRP injections, although there may a short period of time after treatment in which the scalp is numb from the anesthetic. Otherwise, you can anticipate returning to your day as normal.
