Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss and Restoration
PRP Hair Loss Treatment
Hair loss can be a highly disconcerting issue for both men and women. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, approximately 80 million men and women experience hereditary hair loss in the United States. Hair loss can also be caused by several medical conditions and life factors, such as stress. The good news is that almost all forms of hair loss can be stopped with treatment. One of the most effective methods for halting hair loss involves platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. With a thin needle, your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the scalp. Then the growth factors in your blood cells do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated.
PRP Hair Restoration is suitable for both men and women. It is a state of the art, non surgical, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning.
PRP hair loss treatment can be useful for those who:
- Have a receding hairline
- Have noticeably thinning hair
- Are worried about hair loss due to a family history of hair loss
- Want to look better and feel more confident with a full head of hair
