Hair loss is an issue that affects millions of people. There are many treatment options out there, but they are either too dramatic or not terribly effective. PRP hair restoration can help trigger natural hair growth, make your hair thicker, and boost self-esteem. Here at the office of Joseph Banis, MD, we encourage you to learn more about how this revolutionary treatment can benefit you.
How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?
PRP stands for Platelet-rich plasma. PRP hair restoration involves drawing a small amount of blood, typically from the arm. We then spin the blood at very high speeds in a centrifuge to divide it into three distinct layers. In this process, red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are all separated. The PRP is then strategically injected into the scalp. There are growth hormones in the PRP that help trigger inactive hair follicles.
A consultation will be needed to determine how many treatment sessions you will need to achieve the optimal effect. The time between appointments gives the growth hormones a chance to do their job.
When Can You Expect Results?
You can expect to see improvements in hair growth in the months after your PRP treatment. Of course, results vary based on a number of factors. Maintenance treatments down the road can help keep your hair follicles and growth hormones stimulated.
Who Should Consider PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP is very effective for many people but certain factors can make someone a better candidate for this treatment than others. Factors that can increase your odds of success include:
- Being in good general health
- Being in the earlier stages of hair loss
- Still having some active hair growth
- Having realistic expectations
- Wanting to have noticeable results without the hassles of surgery
