Hair loss is something that happens to many adults as they begin the aging process. It can be a little bit embarrassing, especially if the hair loss begins somewhat earlier than others. There are different options available for hair growth, and we can help you determine if PRP therapy is best for you during a consultation. That’s the only real way to determine if this popular treatment can help you achieve your hair restoration goals.
A Closer Look at Platelet-Rich Plasma
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) are cells within the bloodstream that perform necessary actions such as healing for the body. These cells are essential to different growth factors within the body, including restoration for different things, including hair loss. The cells have nutrients that help repair and maintain bodily functions in a healthy way. PRP has been the subject of many countless hours of research. Within the research that has been conducted so far, there have been discoveries of various benefits that PRP can give your body. One of these is replenishing tissue, which definitely includes helping to restore the hair follicles on your scalp. If they are damaged, this is the reason why your hair will not grow. PRP for hair growth can turn the situation around.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
Since PRP is within your bloodstream, that means that we will need to take some of your blood. Once your blood is drawn, we will place it in a machine called a centrifuge, where the blood is spun. While the blood is spinning, the PRP cells will begin to separate themselves from the rest of the things inside of your blood. Once this is completed, we will pull the PRP out of the blood and then use it in the scalp to stimulate hair growth. It’s really that simple.
The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office. It’s entirely non-surgical in nature, and the process of taking your blood can be compared to a simple blood draw.
Who is a Candidate for Treatment?
PRP therapy could be just the route that you need to go to treat your hair loss. But again, in order to know for sure why you are experiencing hair loss and if PRP therapy can work for you, a consultation is essential.
