Confidence is important factor in life in order to put forth your best self. It allows you to tackle the day efficiently and with a strong attitude. Unfortunately, for some people, confidence can be hard to possess. This is especially true for those people who experience thinning hair or extreme hair loss. Luckily, thanks to medical advances and qualified doctors, there is a way to restore your hair along with your confidence.
Hair restoration has been around for decades, but only recently has it become such a strong success. Innovative treatments are emerging that are changing the way that people tackle hair loss. Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP treatments are one option that utilizes your own blood plasma in order to stimulate cellular regeneration. Since PRP is loaded with platelets that contain growth factors, it promotes healing and aids in the clotting of blood.
Doctors utilize this by injecting PRP into the scalp of someone who is experiencing hair loss. This stimulates the dormant hair follicles that are causing your hair to thin, which leads to re-growth and improved thickness of miniaturized hair. Hair follicles play an integral part in thinning hair and when they are targeted with PRP injections your body begins to heal itself.
The procedure involves three stages and only takes about an hour. However, patients may need to undergo this procedure more than once in order to start seeing results and need to repeat it yearly. The first step in the process is getting your blood drawn. It is almost exactly like your routine blood tests, however after it is collected it is put into a centrifuge in order to isolate the platelets. The next step is applying these platelets to the patient’s scalp where they are experiencing hair loss. The scalp first needs to be stimulated, so a topical anesthesia is applied and a micro needling technique is used. This technique pierces the skin and small wounds are created so that the PRP can be injected and absorbed.
