Platelet-rich plasma can be used for a variety of purposes, and although it’s very popular for skin rejuvenation, it’s also known to provide great results for hair restoration. PRP hair restoration is effective for people who are experiencing hair loss, and since it’s a non-surgical treatment, it appeals to most patients. If you’re looking for a safe way to stimulate hair growth, PRP hair restoration is worth considering.
How PRP Treatment Combats Hair Loss
Some of the latest research for tissue healing shows that PRP is useful in stimulating tissue regeneration, and it can be very effective for your hair, skin and scalp. The reason why this treatment is helpful is because it uses your own blood, which contains mesenchymal stem cells. Platelet-rich plasma also contains growth factors that are very important for tissue regeneration.
How is PRP Extracted?
Before you can benefit from this treatment, platelet-rich plasma must be extracted from your blood, and the procedure starts with a small blood sample taken from your body. Once the sample is drawn, it’s spun inside of a centrifuge, and we use this device to separate the PRP from the other components. The PRP that is extracted from your body is injected into your scalp, and when the procedure is finished, you can immediately go home. Since the treatment doesn’t require sedation or medications, there is virtually no downtime.
What Makes PRP Useful for Hair Restoration?
If you’re considering this treatment, you should know how PRP benefits your hair. The reason why platelet-rich plasma helps with hair loss is because it contains several important growth factors. Once injected, these components go to work and stimulate growth within your hair follicles. Studies show that PRP hair restoration can stimulate hair growth.
Does PRP Hair Restoration Really Work?
Initially, many patients are skeptical because they’ve tried many treatments and haven’t achieved satisfactory results. The platelet-rich plasma from your blood contains special cells, and by stimulating important cells inside of your hair follicles, the PRP helps to stimulate growth.
The cells from the platelet-rich plasma accelerate regeneration, and they also encourage the growth of new, healthy cells. Many patients seek PRP hair restoration after receiving a hair transplant because the treatment helps to stimulate implanted and inactive hair follicles.
Although there is no guarantee that this treatment will be successful for you, it has worked well for many patients. To find out if PRP hair restoration is right for you, talk to the team at the Georgia Center for Female Health in Peachtree Corners. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
