What is PRP Hair Restoration?

As medical technology advances, the available options for hair restoration are becoming increasingly diverse, with new techniques and unparalleled levels of comfort and safety. One of the cutting-edge breakthrough treatments developed for hair loss is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration.

PRP Hair Restoration Treatment Explained

This technique uses platelet-rich plasma, which is a serum created from a patient’s own blood. A small sample of the blood is drawn and then concentrated to isolate the platelets and growth factors. This serum, which is injected into the hair follicles and scalp, consists of concentrated platelet cells and growth factor proteins necessary for healing and regeneration. 

Once the serum is injected into the scalp, it creates a healthy and nourishing environment that’s optimal for stimulating the growth of under active or inactive hair follicles. PRP hair restoration can stop or slow the progression of hair loss with minimal downtime. It’s a treatment option that avoids resorting to a more invasive surgical procedure. 

Unlike other surgical hair restoration procedures, PRP treatment can address the very root cause of hair loss, which is the damaged or inactive hair follicles themselves. The results come from the body’s natural responses and self-healing mechanisms, so the new hair growth comes naturally from you, not from something artificial or from surgical intervention.

How Hair Restoration Treatment Works

This innovative procedure is also one of the safest and most comfortable ways you can counter hair loss. The PRP serum, packed with essential healing proteins, platelets, and growth factors, repairs and nourishes the hair follicles and scalp. In the process, hair loss is slowed, and inactive hair follicles may grow new hair.

The entire procedure is quite safe, as treatment is delivered through injection, with no incision or suture necessary. Since the serum is concocted from the patient’s own tissue, there’s little risk of infection or an allergic reaction. PRP hair loss treatment is straightforward and gentle. It takes less than an hour to perform. 

The Ideal Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration

Nearly all men and women dealing with hair loss can have this safe and simple procedure. However, individuals with blood and platelet disorders, hemodynamic instability, cardiovascular instability, or liver disease might have a higher risk of complications with PRP hair restoration. Individuals who are interested in PRP treatment receive a medical consultation with a hair treatment doctor to determine they are appropriate candidates for the procedure.

The best way to find out if PRP hair restoration is the right treatment for you is to schedule an appointment, and then sit down with a hair treatment doctor to discuss your options. If you are not a good candidate for PRP, there are other options that could help restore the attractive, flowing hair you miss seeing when you look in the mirror.
