PRP Hair Restoration
Every day should be a good hair day. But when thinning hair and hair loss become what you predominately see when looking in the mirror, even the best hair days can instantly turn for the worst. So rather than accepting and living with changes to your hair’s thickness, length, and fullness, you can do something about it and get back your crowning glory.
Today, one of the most reliable and advanced treatments for restoring the hair to a more youthful and healthy state is hair restoration with PRP.
This nonsurgical solution employs popular platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which first became popular in skin rejuvenation procedures. Since then, PRP has made its way onto the scalp to improve the appearance of the hair in the long run.
What is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration is a nonsurgical three-step treatment that improves the hair’s health, so it grows thicker, stronger, and faster to fill in thinning areas and sparse patches. PRP uses blood drawn from you and spun down to extract the plasma.
PRP is a super concentrated matrix that contains plasma that has been separated from your blood. Within the plasma lives potent growth factors that heal damaged and ill-functioning hair follicles. These growth factors also prompt normal, healthy hair growth to be thicker and denser.
Injecting PRP into the scalp allows powerful growth factors to increase the hair follicle’s blood supply and thickness of the hair shaft. PRP acts like an amplifier to wake up dormant hair follicles and stimulate the hair’s natural growth cycle. By encouraging the hair follicles to function as intended, the hair begins to grow at a faster rate and grows thicker.
In addition to stimulating hair growth, PRP injections also help improve the scalp’s health by encouraging healthy blood flow and increased circulation. When the scalp is optimally healthy, it creates a better breeding ground for healthy hair. With PRP hair restoration, you’ll notice an improvement in thinning areas and bald spots.
The first few months post-treatment is when the most obvious improvements are noticeable. You can expect less thinning and hair loss and new hair growth. The hair will also be thicker and healthier and may even revert to more of its original color.
How Does It Work?
PRP hair restoration works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles through specialized injections of PRP.
During the treatment, blood is drawn from your arm and spun down to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood. The plasma contains growth factors that promote new hair growth, hair count, and hair thickness while putting the hair into the growth cycle. Next, the blood is put into a centrifuge to create a plasma-rich solution injected directly into the scalp, specifically in areas where thinning is most prominent.
The best results are those of consistent treatment. Unfortunately, hair restoration with PRP is not a one-and-done solution, and it requires a commitment to regular therapy to see the best results possible. You’ll need a series of treatments over three to four months or more, depending on the extent of the hair loss and thinning and its cause.
Within the first few months of PRP injections, you’ll notice less shedding and hair loss, longer hair, and fewer patches. However, maintenance injections are often recommended to maintain the results.
For as much good as PRP offers, it’s best to incorporate a well-rounded hair health protocol to keep the hair in the best shape possible. Some patients benefit from a combination approach that includes PRP hair restoration and other treatments and products.
What Are The Benefits?
Hair restoration PRP has a few main benefits, but increased hair growth is the most important and publicized.
In addition to increasing the hair growth cycle, PRP also improves the hair in the following ways:
- Increases length of hair
- Increases diameter and density of the hair
- Improves the health of the scalp
- Stimulates blood flow and circulation
- Wakes up dormant hair follicles
Who Is A Good Candidate?
PRP hair restoration benefits many candidates, especially those experiencing temporary hair loss or changes to their hair that are not genetically linked or the result of full-fledged baldness.
The earlier thinning changes are caught and addressed, the better the outcome.
Some patients opt for PRP hair restoration to prevent hair loss and hair-related changes, especially if there is a family history of hair thinning. Taking a preventative approach to hair health with PRP hair restoration helps maintain the integrity of the hair and preserve its health.
Those with the first signs of hair loss and thinning are often the best candidates. The treatment also works well for thinning on the top of the head and widening parts.
How Much Does PRP Hair Restoration Cost?
To determine the cost of a PRP hair restoration treatment, we recommend a quick consultation. Then, our providers can discuss the treatment details with you to obtain your desired results.
We tailor the treatment to your needs, and the cost varies. A single treatment starts at $850, depending on treatment details. Our team can create a custom package and a more accurate price for the treatment. A consultation with our staff will provide a more accurate treatment cost.
The PRP hair restoration treatment results are long-lasting but may require regular maintenance sessions to keep up the results. The entire course of treatment can take a few months to up to one year before the final improvement is seen.
However, the results are not immediate and can take a few months to one year to see a change in the hair growth pattern.
PRP is a relatively straightforward process. There's no significant recovery or downtime involved. However, you may feel slightly swollen or sensitive for the first few days after the PRP injections, which quickly resolves.
In the first few days after your injections, it's essential to avoid sun exposure which can hinder the healing process.
You'll want to avoid washing and styling your hair in the days following your injections.
The side effects of a PRP treatment are minimal and can include slight pain, pinpoint bleeding, redness, a feeling of tightness, minor bruising, and headaches. Ice packs and warm showers can reduce any immediate discomfort, and taking some aspirin can also help.
There are no real risks with PRP injections, and the treatment is safe and effective.
When it comes to restoring the hair, PRP is the most effective treatment available today. Although hair supplements, medications, and pills exist, they need to be taken daily. In addition, other therapies like light and laser caps and hair restoration surgery are more invasive than PRP.
