Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair restoration is a nonsurgical treatment that can help improve areas of thinning hair without the downtime of surgery.
How Does Hair Restoration Work?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) contains several natural growth factors that can help you have a healthier scalp and well as hair. When these growth factors from your blood are introduced to the tissue of the scalp, they can have a regenerative and health impact on the hair follicle itself leading to the formation of healthier hair and follicles resulting in a better hairline and thicker healthier hair, naturally.
Is Hair Restoration Permanent?
Hair restoration is not permanent however, it is long lasting. You can easily manage your results with annual follow-up injections after you have received your initial treatment. It is important to remember that all patients respond differently and some may need more treatments than others.
Is PRP Hair Restoration Painful?
The treatment may not be completely painless but it should be very tolerable. We draw your blood, centrifuge it down so that the blood separates the PRP from the other blood components. Once the PRP is extracted, it is activated and then injected into the scalp that has been numbed with a topical numbing cream. The needles that are used for the injections are very small and most patients find it to be a tolerable treatment. Also, since the PRP is autologous (from your body), there is very little risk involved as well.
