PRP Therapy for Hair Loss. Hair Restoration Experts Discuss Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments For Thinning Hair.
One of the newest and most exciting hair loss treatments that is beginning to show promising results and gaining popularity is platelet rich plasma therapy. Drawing a PRP sample from the patients very own blood and then re-injecting the cells responsible for healing and growing new tissue into the scalp is a method of promoting hair growth that is showing incredible success in patients. By harnessing the body‘s natural growth factors and stem cells that are able to not just stop, but even counteract hair loss, we have been able to help many men and women reverse the process of hair loss and balding.
Many adults are embarrassed by their thinning hair. It makes them self-conscious and look older. This is a problem that affects not just men but women as well. With so many treatment options out there it can be difficult to decide on the one that’s right for you. Do you want to start medication that you need to take forever and rub on your scalp? Medications that often have undesirable side effects? There’s other procedures you can try, where they take similar looking strands of hair to your own and either glue or weave them into some of your existing hair, leaving an unnatural appearance. I’m sure you have seen the T.V. commercials where men and women spray hair out of a can onto their head. It looks good on studio but I’m sure you’ve noticed what it actually looks like when these people go out in public! What about a very expensive surgical option where they cut a strip of flash from the back of your head and then re-implant clumps of hair into your scalp, which is also painful and usually leaves a scar. Or would you be willing to try PRP whichis relatively non-invasive, natural and painless treatment option that actuallyallows your hair to start re-growing? Nothing will produce more natural looking results then your hair actually growing back. With the many benefits of PRP and the advantages it has over the other procedures (which typically leave your hairline looking unnatural and uneven) it makes perfect sense as to why so many men and women are turning to platelet rich plasma therapy as their hair loss option.
PRP hair loss treatments are ideal when it comes to treating male pattern baldness as well as female pattern hair loss. If your goal is to achieve results that are natural, and provide fuller thicker hair through the regeneration of your own hair cells then PRP is worth considering. The science behind platelet rich plasma is both complex and fascinating. To put it simply, humans have been equipped with a cellular system for the repairing of injuries, damage tissue and replacing cells within our blood. Our blood contains a series of stem cells that can develop into several distinct types of tissue as needed, such as ligaments, fat, skin, muscle and even hair follicles. Growth factors and cytokines contained in our plasma, promote growth, regeneration and healing. It is why we have inflammation and redness when we get injured. Your body is trying to push as many platelets and healing cells as possible into this area to promote regrowth, repair and healing.
At NovaGenix we separate your blood in a centrifuge and isolate the platelet rich plasma so that we can re-inject the cells in a higher concentration into the areas that require healing. This can be done for many issues, such as sports injuries for example, to help heal damaged knees shoulders elbows necks etc… It also is highly effective for regenerating collagen cells in the face for men or women that are looking for a non-surgical alternative to face lifts. Kim Kardashian coined the term the “Vampire Face Life” as she will often undergo the procedure to keep her skin looking young and radiant. However, in the case of hair loss when injected into the scalp it can not only stop the process of hair follicles from shrinking (thinning out the hair) but even reverse the process to start growing these cells back which creates thicker and fuller strands of hair.
Basically, PRP can reignite hair follicles that were previously inactive and stimulatetheir ability to grow once again. Some patients are better candidates for PRPfor hair loss than others. Studies suggest that people who are just beginning to show signs of thinning hair may benefit better than an individual who has been bald for a significant amount of time. That’s why coming in for PRP consultation at NovaGenix is the best first step. We encourage you to come in and speak to our physician for an honest and informative Q&A where he will be able to address your concerns, answer all of your questions and help you to decide whether or not platelet rich plasma therapy for hair loss would work for you.
The process of undergoing PRP therapy for hair loss is simple, affordable and painless. After your initial consultation we will prescribe a series of pharmaceutical grade vitamins and probiotics which have been clinically proven to help with the process of preventing further hair loss and stimulating blood flow and nutrient distribution to the scalp and hair follicles. We will then draw a small portion of blood from the patient and then separate the PRP from the blood in the centrifuge at our office while you wait. The process takes between 30 and 45 minutes to prepare. Our physician will then prepare your scalp by applying a topical antiseptic as well as a mild numbing agent to alleviate any discomfort. Most patients report next to no discomfort or pain as the physicians use a very thin needle for the injections. The typical protocol would be for a patient to receive 2 to 3 sessions of PRP over a six-month period to achieve maximum results. Results will begin to be seen by the patient after several months and it’s recommended that further treatments be conducted periodically to maintain hair growth.
