HAIR RESTORATION WITH PRP
HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED GROWING MORE HAIR, REVIVING HAIR, OR DENSIFYING HAIR? Microneedling with PRP is the solution.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for men and women who require stimulating hair growth to treat thinning hair. PRP and microneedling for hair loss are proactive therapeutic options for male and female patients experiencing hair loss.
PRP therapy has been used as a medial adjunct therapy for skin and wound healing for over two decades. It has been used effectively in many specialty fields, including oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, burns/wound care medicine, sports medicine, and orthopedics. In hair restoration, PRP for hair loss is an up-and-coming treatment option to help promote hair growth.
PRP comprises special cells called Platelets that may cause the growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These special platelet cells accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing, cellular regeneration, injury response, and new cell growth formation. Using microneedling with PRP for hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active development period.
Inside the Platelets are many intracellular structures such as glycogen, lysosomes, and alpha granules. These granules within PRP contain clotting and growth factors that are ultimately released throughout the healing and repair process.
PRP specific cells that causes hair growth include:
Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)
promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation
Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b)
promotes growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism;
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
promotes blood vessel formation
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation;
Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2)
promotes growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation
Insulin Like Growth Factor (IGF)
a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH HAIR RESTORATION:
Blood is drawn in our office as though you have a routine blood test. It is then spun in a centrifuge, and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood. It would be best to be well hydrated (drink lots of water) before your visit to maximize the amount of plasma we can yield from your blood draw. Photos of the treatment area will be taken before the procedure starts
After the skin of the scalp has been numbed, the highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is delivered to the dermis using the Microneedling pen, and an additional quantity of PRP is injected into the scalp.
- The hair restoration procedure (not including blood draw or numbing time) takes approximately 40 minutes.
- It is suggested to be performed every 4 to 6 weeks for three procedures.
- Maintenance would then be one treatment once or twice a year for most clients.
WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE PRP TREATMENT?
Patients with a history of heavy smoking and drug and alcohol use. Medical diagnoses include platelet dysfunction syndromes, thrombocytopenia, hypofibrinogenemia, hemodynamic instability, sepsis, acute and chronic Infections, chronic liver disease, anticoagulation therapy, chronic skin diseases or cancer, and metabolic and systemic disorders.
IS PRP FOR ME?
PRP has been used successfully in other medical and surgical disciplines. Using PRP is a personal decision and should be made after careful research, consideration, and consultation with a physician. Platelet-rich plasma hair growth is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the good cells from your scalp and injects them directly back into the area needed. There is no chance of getting a blood infection from another human being. PRP involves using your cells that are not modified or changed, and your immune system will not reject them. The benefits of PRP for hair loss before and after treatment are huge enough to consider this natural treatment.
