As we age, our bodies change significantly. For many men and some women, hair loss can be an incredibly frustrating and embarrassing condition. While some are confident enough to shave their head completely or simply wear their natural thinning/receding hair, others find themselves desperate to reverse the results. There are thousands of methods on the market for combating hair loss, but one particular solution has gained significant attention and praise: PRP hair therapy.Schedule consultation
PRP therapy—or “platelet-rich plasma” therapy—is a hair restoration procedure in which doctors inject a patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (harvested from a patient blood sample) directly into the scalp. The specialized blood cells in the injection then provide growth factors to the surrounding tissue, allowing the patient’s natural hair to regrow. Because this is the patient’s own real hair growing from their own real follicles, the resulting look is much more natural and realistic than options like hair pieces and implants (plugs).
The non-surgical nature of the therapy makes it easy to administer on an outpatient basis. This short, minimal-commitment option is especially convenient for patients whose schedules may not otherwise support making long office visits or taking time off for surgeries/recovery. The entire treatment usually takes a maximum of 20 minutes to complete, which makes it perfect for a lunch-break.
One of the most interesting aspects of PRP hair restoration therapy, as compared to other hair loss therapies, is the significant change it can make in cases of androgenic alopecia—otherwise known as genetic “pattern baldness.” Where standard treatments like minoxidil fail, PRP therapy succeeds. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery showed a significant reduction in patient hair loss over the course of just four injections!
After the first procedure or two, patients can expect to see a slowing of hair loss followed eventually by the regrowth of hair. Follow-up visits and treatments are usually scheduled over a given period to achieve maximum results (more appointments for slower progress). In some cases, doctors will recommend the continued use of other hair loss treatments (e.g., topicals) to further support the regrowth process.
