For many people, the aging process brings about a natural thinning of hair. This can cause acute self-consciousness and a lack of overall confidence. Fortunately, PRP hair restoration can help turn things around. This all-natural, non-surgical treatment option has helped countless individuals regain a full head of hair and the self-image that goes with it. Here at Mountain State Cosmetic Surgery, we encourage you to learn more about how this celebrated treatment may be able to benefit you.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, one of a few components found naturally in your blood. Platelet-rich plasma is rife with proteins and growth factors that help to stimulate the healing process. As far as hair restoration, PRP can also be used to jumpstart follicles and bring about fuller hair growth.
The PRP Hair Restoration Process
If deemed eligible for PRP hair restoration, you will be invited to our office for your treatment session. During the process, a qualified professional will draw a small sample of your blood. This sample will then be placed in a machine called a centrifuge, which spins rapidly to separate the PRP from the other components of the blood. Once the PRP is isolated, it will be prepared as a serum and injected into various points in your scalp where hair growth has diminished. There is little to no downtime associated with this treatment, meaning you can get back to your regular routine right after your session. Results may become apparent within weeks to months, and many people report high satisfaction. Multiple sessions may be necessary to maintain the optimal effect.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Anyone who wishes to combat hair loss with a non-surgical option may be a good candidate for PRP hair restoration. As this treatment uses material from your own body, there is slim to no chance of any adverse reaction. It is important to harbor realistic expectations about this therapy in terms of what it can accomplish, though a positive outlook always helps. The best way to determine your eligibility for PRP hair restoration is to come into our office for an official consultation.
