Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments for Hair Loss: An Effective Solution Without the Downtime

Is Your Self-Esteem Being Affected Because of Hair Loss?

It’s no secret that hair loss, balding or hair thinning can be a very scary thing for anyone to experience. Whatever your hair loss experience is, it’s something that can lower confidence and your self-esteem. Unfortunately, unjust stigma is often associated with hair loss so it can feel difficult to talk about, and even a little embarrassing at times.

While we understand the struggle, we want you to know you’ve finally come to the right place. We’re here to break down a revolutionary treatment designed to combat hair loss in a non-invasive and natural way!

First things first – you must realize that you’re not alone! Hair loss is actually quite common and by around the age of 35, more than half of all men will experience hair loss to some degree. As for women, about one-third of women will experience it at some point in their lives. In fact, two-thirds of postmenopausal women will face hair loss.

Now, if you’re noticing your hair strands here and there around the house, remember, we lose approximately 50-100 strands of hair a day, so it’s perfectly normal for everyone. Don’t panic! However, if you’ve noticed more evident signs of hair loss on your scalp, you’re in for a treat because we’ve got you covered!

An All-Natural, Organic Approach to Reversing Hair Loss with PRP

There’s an amazing treatment for hair regrowth and restoration know as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Loss, which utilizes your own blood to restore that youthful mane and your confidence.

That’s right! Your body’s own blood platelets are used to stimulate tissue regeneration, cell growth, and collagen production leaving you with hair growth that’s 100% organic. While it may look super intense, it’s actually an easy procedure with effective results, if performed by a medical professional.

This treatment is the most popular, non-surgical hair loss treatment available today to combat hair thinning and male or female pattern baldness. PRP Therapy repairs damaged hair follicles which stimulates growth, leaving you with fuller hair that’s healthy. The procedure, which only takes about 45 minutes to complete, potentially leaves patients with noticeable results in just a few months.

The great thing about PRP Therapy treatments is that they’re an effective, affordable alternative to daily hair restoration regiments, as well as the best non-surgical option available today. PRP can be a great solution as opposed to more invasive, surgical approaches.

So, How Exactly Does PRP Therapy Work?

PRP Therapy begins with a sample of your blood being drawn and then placed into a centrifuge. It’s then spun at extremely high speeds until the enriched stem cells or platelets are fully separated from other components of the blood. The plasma is then isolated and injected into your scalp, stimulating hair regrowth through repairing hair follicles that are dormant or damaged.

Your PRP contains growth factors that stimulate this new hair growth by being injected into your scalp where needed. The injections naturally leave a small amount of plasma close to the targeted hair follicles, stimulating them and eventually producing the accelerated growth of these new, high-quality strands of hair. This treatment is a great procedure for both male and female hair loss and thinning. Our own clients at the Alpha Clinic have witnessed exceptional results with this easy, quick treatment.

Depending on each client’s condition and desired outcomes, it’s expected that you would require anywhere between 3 to 8 PRP treatments, with approximately four-week intervals in between each treatment. The treatment will last for approximately 45 minutes but prepare to be at your dermatologist’s office for about an hour.

Remember, PRP can be a great, stand-alone procedure for hair restoration, but it also works very well in combination with a hair transplant procedure for optimal results or more advanced cases. Remember to seek the advice of a board-certified dermatologist who has been expertly trained in all the latest advancements and techniques for this treatment. This ensures results that are effective and most importantly, safe.

The Science Behind It All

To understand why PRP treatments are so effective, it’s important to understand why experts began turning to this procedure in the first place. The use of PRP procedures began when hair loss doctors and specialists were searching for ways to ensure the survival of the grafts being used in hair transplants.

Why? Well, if a harvested hair follicle is away from its natural blood supply, it does have a chance of not surviving. Even with the proper steps to a traditional hair transplant procedure, successfully transplanted grafts may not flourish or even survive in their new site on the scalp.

Medical and scientific research found that a patient’s platelet-rich plasma being injected into these recipient sites nourished and maintained the healthy growth of transplanted hair, allowing for more fruitful results that were more permanent and successful.

With advancements in techniques and technology, PRP treatments can now be stand-alone procedures that are an effective, non-surgical alternative to transplants, that rejuvenate hair follicles and promote healthy growth of your natural hair. But PRP can also be an effective supplementary treatment to some transplants, depending on the patient’s response to the initial procedure and based on their own needs.

Why PRP Therapy May Be the Solution for You

PRP Therapy is an effective and safe procedure with little to no side effects that need to be worried about. Remember, it’s your own blood being injected into your body, so absolutely no foreign substances or products are being used. It’s highly unlikely that your body will react negatively to your own blood.

Just be cautious of who you allow this procedure to be done by, as safety matters! This procedure should only be performed by a board-certified dermatologist or their team of medical experts.

Some of the many benefits of PRP Therapy include:

Minimal Downtime. Because PRP is non-invasive and non-surgical, there is no real downtime. Keep in mind that there will be swelling, and slight discomfort may be experienced after the procedure, in the first 24 hours.

Safety. PRP Therapy uses your own body’s plasma, so there is no risk of rejection or risk of an allergic reaction. No foreign substance or product is being injected into your body.

Improved Healing and Faster Recovery. The regenerative properties of the PRP injections aid in increasing the overall number of platelets in the tissues where they are injected and will help your scalp heal faster following the procedure.

Reduced Scarring. Due to its natural healing properties, PRP will also reduce the appearance of the treated area as no scarring occurs and any dot-like scarring following the procedure is significantly reduced.

Natural Growth Results. PRP promotes the regrowth of your healthy, organic hair, and it’s a great stand-alone procedure or a supplementary therapy to other hair loss treatments available.

Effective Results. Results do vary from person to person, however, on average, you will notice an improvement in hair growth in about three months after the treatment. Full effects need about a year with several sessions for optimal results.
