Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration is an advanced treatment service providers have used to help regenerate hair with your own chemistry and cells. This minimally invasive procedure helps initiate the regenerative process by utilizing the growth factors that platelets are known to contain. PRP therapy is autologous, meaning it is derived from the patient, therefore reducing the risk of rejection or allergic reaction.
Highly concentrated blood plasma contains platelets that release growth factors. These growth factors have been shown to generate new hair and improve the density and health of existing hair. Post-surgical PRP treatment is recommended for hair transplant recipients to further promote healing and inspire growth. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition received from the blood supply. If we introduce platelets by administering PRP in the area of damaged hair follicles, the process amplifies the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism. The baseline condition of the hair follicle is important to assess when evaluating candidates for PRP therapy.
PRP HAIR RESTORATION BENEFITS:
- Regenerative benefits
- Reduced trauma and inflammation
- Few contraindications
- Short recovery time
- Targeted and accelerated healing
PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT:
- Drink plenty of fluids, because we will be doing a blood draw.
- Do not arrive for your appointment with active flu or cold or other infectious diseases.
- Avoid treatment if you have any of the following medical contraindications: skin diseases, cancer, chemotherapy treatments, severe metabolic disorders, blood disorders, chronic liver pathology, anticoagulation therapy and use of steroids within two weeks before the treatment.
- Do not use Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen and oil supplements for at least 3-7 before the treatment.
DURING YOUR TREATMENT:
The PRP treatment is simple, minimally invasive treatment that can be completed within an hour. A minimal amount of blood is taken from the patient and then placed in an FDA cleared centrifuge for separation. We add an activation agent that stimulates the platelets and acts as a scaffold so where we treat your body, the PRP stays and does not disperse. This allows the healing cascade to be focused in a speciﬁc area. The PRP is then separated and transferred to a syringe. It is then injected into the areas of concern to begin the regeneration of the hair follicles. It can be administered to as many areas as desired.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT:
- You may experience some swelling
- No massaging the area of treatment right after the treatment.
- Smoking is not recommended, no exercise for at least 3 days.
- Bruising, swelling, soreness is normal.
Hair regrowth for the scalp for men and women using mesotherapy is a technique which places hair stimulating solutions and vitamins into the scalp at the base of hair follicles, a procedure superior to topical application of medications that usually just lie on the scalp and do not touch the base of the hair follicle. This procedure works for women and men with stress related hair thinning, age related hair loss, alopecia, women with post pregnancy hair loss and male pattern hair loss. This hair regrowth technique is widely used in Europe, South America and in the United States. Mesotherapy replaces the vitamins and minerals, which the body loses with aging and stress. The hair loss medications in mesotherapy for hair can improve blood flow to the scalp and revive hair follicles. Through microinjections, the hair loss treatment delivers nutrients to improve the tissue environment, and stimulate hair growth, straight to the hair follicles. Overtime, the MesoHair solutions neutralize the DHT hormone, causing hair to grow again. Hair will continue to go through the natural phases of turnover as we age but the new hair growth remains intact once it has been stimulated with the mesotherapy injections.
LIGHT THERAPY HAIR GROWTH
Red light therapy helps to increase the energy production around the unhealthy follicle cells, stimulating them from dormancy into an active growth phase while increasing the production of thicker and healthier hair. Red LED light therapy is an add-on treatment that helps improve the outcome of hair growth stimulation from PRP and Mesotherapy hair restoration treatments.
