Kourtney Kardashian Got PRP to Fix a Bald Spot
This past season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians started with an unexpected turn of events! Kim noticed a cosmetic disaster on top of Kourtney’s head – a bald spot! This was masterfully resolved by her doctor through the wonders of PRP, which stimulates natural hair growth.
What is PRP and how does it work?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a concentrated amount of your platelets that have been separated from a small sample of your blood. Why platelets you ask? Platelets are a type of blood cell that is responsible for healing. Platelets, combined with proteins called growth factors, are separated from your blood and injected into your scalp to stimulate healing and cell growth in your skin and hair follicles. The flood of healing proteins and cells to the area enhances the ability of your hair follicles to grow. The PRP also encourages blood circulation to the scalp, bringing more nutrients and oxygen to the area to strengthen the growing hair.
Am I a candidate?
We treat all types of hair loss, whether you’ve had an experience like Kourtney and your ponytail was too tight, or you’re suffering from male pattern baldness. Candidates include people who have:
- Thinning hair
- Receding hairline
- Bald patches
PRP for hair restoration is a great option to help your hair regain its youthful thickness! And the earlier you start, the easier it is to treat.
How long does it take to see results from PRP treatments for hair restoration?
The results will take a few months to develop as the PRP treatments stimulate your body to heal and your hair to grow. You can expect to see the most noticeable results around the three-month mark. To get the best results, most patients will require three treatments, each spaced a month apart. This will allow time for your hair to strengthen and for dormant follicles to awaken and grow.
