The realization that your hair is thinning hair or you’re developing bald spots is never a great experience, for men or women. What should you do? Expensive shampoos and conditioners rarely work and prescription drugs for hair loss have numerous side effects, don’t always work and are a significant expense. Hair transplants can be expensive and time-consuming, often taking months or years to work. Finding a natural, healthy, effective way to stimulate the hair growth used to be next to impossible. You can often offset some types of hair loss by adjusting your diet, taking specific supplements, or making lifestyle changes. In many cases, treating the area with PRP may improve hair retention, improve conditions for hair regrowth and strengthen existing hair follicles.
What Is PRP?
PRP, also known as platelet-rich plasma, is a blood product derived from the one’s own whole blood. A small blood sample is drawn from the patient at the time of the procedure and spun in-office in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from red blood cells. The patient’s own PRP is then applied to the scalp to introduce growth factors that stimulate collagen production and skin rejuvenation and hair growth.
Who Is a Candidate?
Anyone who is noticing more than usual hair loss should be evaluated by a qualified medical professional to assess the potential causes and treatment options. PRP could be an excellent option if you are looking for a minimally invasive, affordable and effective treatment to improve hair retention, improve conditions for hair regrowth and strengthen existing hair follicles.
