PRP Treatment Solution for Hair Loss Explained
Hair loss or alopecia is a common occurrence that affects both men and women. It can result from hereditary or several epigenetic factors such as hormonal changes, medical conditions, and aging.
Hair loss can be associated with gradual thinning on top of the head, receding hairline, and patchy bald spots. Although not openly discussed, hair thinning and baldness cause psychological distress to people experiencing it. Some men experience early-stage baldness in their 20s, and this progresses eventually with aging. This sometimes affects self-confidence and makes a person conscious of his or her appearance.
One of the modern treatments for hair loss is PRP hair restoration. Although relatively new, PRP hair restoration treatment and auxiliary procedures such as microneedling and laser have shown to have positive results in androgenetic and alopecia areata patients. Here we answer the questions about PRP Hair Restoration and how it works.
What Is PRP Hair Restoration, and How Does It Work?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration is a treatment for hair loss, which primarily involves drawing blood from a patient, which is then processed and injected to the scalp.
Through microneedling, controlled “wound” is introduced together with platelets and peptides. This process stimulates and maintains natural hair growth by increasing the supply of blood in the hair follicle. Aside from hair growth, PRP may also result in increased hair thickness, which can help cover the affected areas.
How Does PRP Treatment Procedure Go?
PRP Hair Restoration consists of three treatments divided every 4-6 weeks. Here at Elite Body and Laser, we offer the 90-Day Program to increase the hair growth phase and to allow the follicles to have more time to strengthen and grow.
PRP Hair Treatment normally requires three steps that take 90 minutes in total to complete:
- Blood collection. A significant amount of blood will be drawn from your arm. The collected blood will be placed in a centrifuge to separate blood components.
- Separation of blood components. The blood sample is now separated into three layers— red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and the gold layer, the platelet-rich plasma.
- Application of PRP and peptides into the affected area. A topical anesthetic is first applied in the scalp treatment area. This is followed by PRP injections and a microneedling procedure technique to create tiny wounds for the peptides to penetrate the scalp easily.
After the treatment, patients may experience pain similar to that of a headache. This is manageable by taking Tylenol. Mild swelling may be seen within the first 48 hours after treatment, so it is advised to avoid heavy scalp activities that may directly contact the scalp.
When Will I See Results?
The duration as to when PRP Hair Treatment results show may vary from individual to individual. Most cases take 2-3 treatments to see results.
Who Qualifies for PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP Hair restoration is a non-invasive treatment, and almost anyone, men and women, can undergo this procedure. PRP hair restoration stimulates growth in affected areas, and it can also be a preventive method for early-stage hair loss.
People taking medications or having existing conditions such as low platelet count, thyroid disease, cancer, and chronic liver disease must first consult their physicians for advice or choose a different hair regeneration method.
