Why Is PRP Hair Therapy More Effective than Others?
Does PRP Hair Restoration Work for Hair Loss?
Are you losing hair? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Millions of people experience hair loss at some point in their lives. But what can be done about it? If you’re considering PRP hair restoration, you’re on the right track. PRP has been shown to be an effective treatment for hair loss.
PRP contains proteins that encourage hair growth by helping blood clot and increasing cell growth. While it is not guaranteed that PRP will help every situation, there are a lot of promising results from people who have tried PRP for hair loss treatment. In 2019, a study compared PRP with Rogaine and found that PRP was much more beneficial for hair loss than Rogaine, resulting in thicker, longer lasting hair regrowth.
What is a PRP Treatment?
PRP stands for “Platelet Rich Plasma Injections” and is a three-step medical hair loss treatment where a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and injected into the scalp. It is believed in the medical community that PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and increase blood supply to the hair follicles, which maintains the growth and increases the thickness of the hair.
How Does This Procedure Work?
You will first have a consultation with one of our specialists about your expectations, your lifestyle, and which nutrients you may have to take combined with PRP treatment to encourage hair growth.
The actual procedure itself takes approximately half an hour. Dr. Pavlou will draw a sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. The blood is then extracted and injected into the balding areas of the scalp.
During the procedure there will be minimal discomfort and you can return to work the next day. You will need to return once a month for three months to receive your injections, and then once every three to six months afterwards.
The first thing that occurs during your PRP treatment is that blood is drawn, typically from your arm, and put into a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins to separate fluids of different densities.
After 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood has been separated into platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells.
The plasma is then drawn into a syringe and injected into the areas of the scalp that have experienced balding. As stated earlier, you will feel minimal pain, be able to go to work the next day, and return a month later for more treatments.
What Benefits Can I Expect From a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment?
The benefits of a PRP hair restoration treatment are numerous. PRP therapy can stimulate dormant hair follicles, promote new hair growth, and restore the health of your scalp. PRP therapy is also a minimally invasive procedure that is safe and effective.
One of the biggest benefits of PRP therapy is that it is a natural treatment. The platelets in your blood contain growth factors that can encourage hair growth. These growth factors help create an environment conducive to hair growth.
Another benefit of PRP therapy is that it is a non-surgical treatment. There is no need for scalpels or incisions, which means there is less risk of scarring or other complications! In addition, since the procedure is minimally invasive, it typically requires minimal downtime.
PRP therapy also has a high success rate. PRP is an appropriate hair regrowth procedure for anyone seeking a non-invasive treatment to improve the appearance of their mild hair loss.
Is PRP Hair Restoration Treatment Permanent?
Many patients have seen satisfying results from PRP hair restoration treatment, including thicker hair, more follicles, and a healthier scalp. You will not see the initial results until after your first few rounds of treatment (it varies from person to person), and after the results appear, you will need to get touch-ups every few months to maintain new hair regrowth. Although PRP is not a permanent solution, you will see results so long as you attend your appointments and take care of your personal health.
Hair Transplant vs. PRP Hair Restoration
A hair transplant is an extensive and complicated surgical procedure which involves taking a small part of skin, along with hair grafts, from your scalp and transplanting it to the areas in which you experience hair loss. Hair transplantation is much more invasive than PRP and involves incisions and a high probability that your scalp may reject the hair graft.
The success of hair transplants is unpredictable.
With PRP, the use of platelets minimizes the risk of rejection and makes it an ultimately safer, easier treatment with minimal discomfort. PRP helps stimulate dormant hair follicles, improves hair volume and density, and optimizes your future hair health. Hair transplantation treats baldness, while PRP hair therapy prevents balding and reduces the appearance of thinning hair.
