It is estimated that approximately 56 million Americans are affected by hair loss, and up to 40% are women!
Hair loss can be upsetting, embarrassing and damaging to your confidence it can even limit career opportunities.
Although there are many viable options (and twice as many dubious ones), they tend to be expensive, have the potential for unwanted side effects and do not treat the underlying cause.
But today, there’s an innovative solution that addresses hair loss at the root. It’s called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration and it is an affordable way to reverse hair loss without surgery, elixirs or ointments.
PRP treatment uses your body’s own healing powers to rejuvenate natural hair growth and bring back a youthful vibrancy to your hair.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma is a component of your own blood. Blood is made up of four components; red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. PRP is harvested by taking a standard blood draw from your arm, then spinning the blood in a centrifuge. This process separates platelet rich plasma from the blood cells. It is this concentration of plasma (nutrients) and platelets (to repair damage) that makes up PRP.
Platelet-rich plasma uses the part of your blood that contains natural growth factors and when these growth factors reach the deeper layers of the skin, they can stimulate the growth of new hair; thus allowing the you to regain a youthful appearance using just your body’s own concentrated resources.
How PRP for Hair Restoration Works
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Restoration involves simple injections into the vascular layer of your scalp. In doing this, PRP for hair regrowth:
- Increases blood supply to the follicles
- Increases hair shaft size (thickness)
- Triggers and maintains the hair growth phase
- Decreases hair loss
The PRP Treatment Process
PRP hair rejuvenation is a three-step process that typically requires 2 or 3 treatments spaced 4–6 weeks apart.
Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm.
The blood is put into a centrifuge — a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities—and after about 10 minutes, the blood is separated into in three layers:
- Platelet-poor plasma
- Platelet-rich plasma
- Red blood cells
The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and injected across the scalp with a fine gauge needle, approximately every half inch in and around the area of thinning hair.
PRP has been proven in different fields of medicine from wound healing to speeding up recovery time and regrowth of healthier, stronger tissues and joints. And now doctors are using these same benefits to rejuvenate hair growth.
By using your own body’s natural regenerative healing power, it’s now possible to transform dormant hair follicles into thick and growing hair.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has been around for more than 20 years. It was once reserved for movie and sports stars, but now is available to anyone who wants to use their body’s natural healing powers to fight aging, regrow hair and regain some of their youthful appearance and function.
