Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections for Hair Regrowth
If over-the-counter creams haven’t done the trick, and you aren’t interested in undergoing hair transplant surgery or getting onto artificial hormones, platelet-rich plasma injections for hair regrowth are an all-natural option that may be able to help you get that full head of hair (and your confidence) back.
You have likely heard of other uses for platelet-rich plasma injections. They are often used in regenerative medicine to treat painful conditions. PRP can also help boost recovery from injuries, and are even used in a number of aesthetic procedures.
The versatility of this treatment is quite impressive. It’s no surprise that it can also be used to give an all-natural boost to revive hair follicles and help rehydrate the scalp in the way of hair restoration.
The PRP solution is obtained by taking a small sample of the patient’s blood in the office. Spinning it in a device called a centrifuge, which isolates the plasma from the red blood cells. This serum is full of concentrated, healing growth factors that work with the system to promote healing, increase circulation and signal the cells in the injected area to get to work regenerating new, healthy cells that are needed there.
Whether your hair is thinning, your hairline is receding, or it’s a combination of both, most men and women suffering from hair loss can benefit from platelet-rich plasma injections for hair regrowth.
Microneedling with PRP
For our hair restoration treatments, we go a step beyond PRP injections and actually apply the serum in conjunction with microneedling.
That’s where the practitioner uses a specialized tool, a roller with very fine needles, to prep the surface area of the scalp and the area being treated for rapid, widespread topical absorption of the platelet-rich plasma.
Patients may notice slight side effects after this treatment, such as minor redness or bruising, and these generally do not last more than a few days.
Our team would be happy to answer any questions you have on microneedling with PRP and ensure you are informed on the procedure so you can decide what is best for your needs. Set up your initial consultation by reaching out to our office today.
