What Is Hair Rejuvenation with PRP
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells remain, and injecting it into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth.
PRP therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which your blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into your scalp.
PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications.
What Causes Hair Loss
Though often associated with aging and genetics, hair loss can happen any time throughout adulthood. Balding occurs when the hair follicles, the small sacs that anchor individual hairs to the scalp, begin to shrink, allowing the hair to fall out.
With hair loss, research suggests injecting the platelets found in your blood and activating your growth factors can improve the blood supply to your hair follicles and increase the thickness of your hair shafts.
The Benefits of PRP Therapy Over Time
The PRP procedure comes in more than one dose. It is a series of injections carried out over a period of weeks and redone over several months, you will begin to see changes as you progress through the treatment. You may notice the following:
Your hair may become thicker and denser in the problem areas being treating
The appearance of balding and thinning spots may be reversed
Your receding hairline may begin to grow back in
Your self-confidence will increase gradually as those problem areas disappear
Though this may all sound too good to be true, you had better start believing it! The results have indicated that PRP therapy could achieve everything it states.
FAQ – PRP Hair Restoration Therapy
HOW DOES PRP WORK?
PRP Therapy works on the basis of restoring growth factors within the blood. Human blood contains growth factors and autologous blood products. These elements are essential to regenerate scalp tissue. Once the scalp tissue is regenerated, the hair follicles are able to produce the necessary hair growth.
IS PRP SAFE?
PRP has been the topic of medical literature from both the United States and Europe. Not only is the product heralded as a revolutionary way to stimulate and restore hair growth, but it is also one of the safest cosmetic hair growth options on the market today. While there is prevalent opinion of PRP and its benefits within medical literature, you should keep in mind that publications do not mean that the product has gained FDA approval thus the treatment is off label. Regardless, it is still a very promising and realistic option if you are grappling with hair loss.
HOW IS THE PRP TREATMENT PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
The procedure is extremely convenient and non-medically invasive. During the visit, a medical professional will first draw your blood and then apply a topical anesthesia to the treatment area.
Next, the medical staff will spin your blood through a centrifuge where the PRP is separated from the rest of the blood. In order to spin and remove the PRP molecules from the blood, the blood is run through a centrifuge. Once the centrifugation process is complete, the vital growth proteins from your plasma are separated from your red blood cells.
Next, Dr. Delaney will inject your scalp with the platelet rich plasma (PRP). Then PRP stimulates the follicles so that your hair can regrow. For more advanced results, you can choose to have PRP therapy performed monthly for four months.
THE SCIENCE OF PRP: HOW DOES PRP WORK?
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, essentially contains platelets that are key to stimulating hair follicles to generate hair growth. They mainly target the dermal papilla, which is a component of the hair follicle. The platelets, when used to regenerate hair growth within follicles, promote healing, the formation of new cell growth and accelerate the rate and degree of regeneration. PRP is an ideal component of hair restoration because it is highly effective in stimulating inactive hair follicles, causing them to revert to the growth phase.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM MY PRP TREATMENT?
Although you will start to see improvement in hair texture, a thickness of hair shaft and growth of new hairs in the treated area within two weeks after treatment, it typically takes three to six months from your initial treatment to see measurable results.
Dr. Delaney’s Input on PRP for Hair Restoration
Before your PRP procedure, I will discuss realistic expectations with you. Improvement in hair health and thickness is possible and has been documented in several peer-reviewed studies. We will talk about lifestyle choices that can affect hair loss, such as quitting smoking and eating a diet fortified with vitamin D and iron – two nutrients that support hair growth. PRP is an effective non-surgical procedure that works well to stimulate the follicle in order to induce hair growth and reverse hair thinning.
I have been seeing Dr. Delaney for a little over two years now. When I first started, I hadn’t really done anything. Let me just tell you, I’m now a true believer and there is no service on their list I wouldn’t do. It definitely stems from trust and over the years Dr. Delaney has gained it fully. I’m guessing that was why I never truly pulled the trigger before with anyone else. I started slow, a little Botox here and there, and eventually worked my way up the service list. I’ve had almost everything on their service list done. Halo’s, BBL’s, cool sculpting, micro needling, fillers, Botox, PRP, PRP injections, etc.
