If you’re wanting to promote new, thicker hair growth, PRP therapy may be the best option for you! This hair regeneration treatment works naturally with your body to thicken thinned out hair while generating new hair growth.
What is PRP Hair Regeneration?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated blood plasma that contains approximately five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. PRP Hair Regeneration utilizes your body’s natural platelets to stimulate hair regeneration and growth. The highly concentrated growth factors in the platelets have showed success in generating new hair growth, providing the hair growth solutions patients are looking for.
The use of a patient’s own platelets in the treatments makes this option a safer choice, as the patient is the source of their own PRP. The PRP contains the patient’s own growth factors, naturally stimulating hair growth.
How PRP Therapy Works
The treatment is performed in three stages:
- Blood is collected from your vein by a nurse and stored in a special container. While it may sound scary, we promise it isn’t! This container is placed in a special machine, where it is spun, causing your blood components to separate. Now that the concentrated platelets, which hold abundant growth factors, have been separated, it is ready to be applied to the scalp.
- Next, the platelets are applied to your scalp where the hair loss has begun. A very fine needle is used for the injections where the hair is thinning.
- Finally, LED LightStim therapy is applied to the area for 20 minutes, further enhancing the effective results of PRP.
While there is minimal discomfort associated with this treatment, you may notice some tenderness in the injected area. This will usually diminish after two or three days and shouldn’t be a concern for patients.
Patients will typically have to receive multiple treatments prior to seeing results. The initial recommendation is four treatments, approximately one month apart. Plus, maintenance of the hair follicles will require one or two additional treatments per year. The specialists at APSA will work with you to set up a customized treatment plan that will provide the best results.
Are You a Good Candidate?
PRP treatment is best for promoting growth and thickening of existing hair follicles. If hair follicles are completely lost, this procedure may not be as effective for patients. If you’re interested in discovering if you’re a good candidate, set up a complimentary consultation with APSA today!
