When you were young, you might’ve taken your gorgeous, full head of hair for granted. For some reason you thought it would always be lush, so you put it through the ringer: bleach, hair color, curling irons, and hair straighteners. Then one day you began to notice that your hair was thinner than it once was or perhaps you saw a balding spot on your scalp. That’s when you freaked out! The simple truth is that as we age, our hair naturally thins, and that thinning is helped along by heat and bleach damage. But there is a remedy for your hair loss and thinning, a remedy that actually works: PRP hair restoration!
How PRP Therapy Works
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a treatment that has been used for years to help restore, rejuvenate, and refresh the body in a number of different ways. Very simply, platelet-rich plasma is the part of your blood that contains white blood cells and proteins that are called growth factors. These two components of your blood are responsible for healing cells and tissue.
The PRP Procedure
For the procedure, we will first need a small blood sample, which we get through a routine draw. Your blood will then be placed into a centrifuge that can break your blood down into its different parts. Extracting your platelet-rich plasma, we will create an injectable serum that will be used to target the areas of your scalp where you are experiencing hair loss or thinning.
The PRP treatment is completely non-invasive and non-surgical. Unlike other hair loss treatments, there are no openings made, no unnatural hair plugs, and no scarring. There is also no risk of an allergic reaction, as we only use your own blood. The entire procedure should take no longer than an hour, and there is no downtime associated with PRP.
Women and PRP Hair Restoration
PRP therapy works to naturally heal your damaged or malfunctioning hair follicles. The influx of concentrated white blood cells and growth factors will heal those hair follicles so that they can begin producing hair once again. PRP also helps reduce inflammation and flushes your scalp with healing blood. Women who suffer from hair thinning due to hormones or genetics, alopecia, or chronic hair shedding make excellent candidates for PRP therapy. If you have any blood diseases, liver disorders, or other serious health conditions, PRP may not be for you.
