What is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration is an exciting, non-surgical hair restoration option that can help spur hair growth in both men and women. This technique uses the body’s own healing growth factors to improve hair growth. It involves only a quick and painless blood draw and reinjection into the scalp. This treatment is particularly beneficial for patients that are not candidates for surgical hair restoration, or that desire a more aggressive non-surgical approach to treatment.
How Does it Work?
Like other PRP treatments, PRP hair restoration operates on the principle that the human body houses many of the things people need to address their aesthetic concerns. PRP treatments hone in on the healing potential of the blood. Human blood contains stem cells and other essential components that are responsible for much of the healing and regeneration that takes place in the body.
One component of the blood, called platelet-rich plasma, contains a particularly high concentration of these growth factors. During a PRP treatment, this platelet-rich plasma is isolated from the patient’s blood and reinjected back into their body in the area where they would like to stimulate cellular renewal; in this case, the hair follicles. Once injected into the follicles, this PRP stimulates and regenerates the cells there, helping heal the follicle to the point that hair can begin to grow from it again.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
A PRP hair restoration treatment begins when blood is extracted from the patient. This blood is then processed through a centrifuge that separates platelet rich plasma cells from other components of the blood. Once these healing factors have been isolated, the injection area is prepped, and the extracted PRP is reinjected into the scalp at various locations.
Am I a Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?
Nearly any man or woman that is interested increasing hair growth or correcting hair loss is a potential candidate for PRP hair restoration. However, it’s important to keep in mind that this treatment cannot be undergone by individuals that have:
- A history of heavy smoking, drug, or alcohol use
- Platelet dysfunction syndromes
- Chronic liver disease
- Metabolic or systemic disorders
- Skin disease or cancer
