While hair loss is traditionally thought of as a male problem, millions of women also suffer from this condition. Because we know how emotionally frustrating and psychologically damaging hair loss can be in women, we’re proud to offer our patients a non-surgical way to regrow their hair — PRP hair restoration.
Georgia Center for Female Health is proud to provide all of our patients with the high-quality medical and cosmetic care they need. If you’d like more information about our practice or are interested in scheduling a consultation appointment with us, contact us today!
What is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration is a state-of-the-art, non-surgical alternative to traditional hair restoration treatments that can be used to improve hair loss. This treatment harnesses the body’s own healing potential to heal damaged hair follicles in order to facilitate and stimulate hair growth. PRP hair restoration is ideal for patients that are not candidates for other methods of hair restoration, or who would simply prefer not to undergo a surgical procedure.
How Does it Work?
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a component of the blood that contains stem cells and many other essential growth factors that aid in the body’s natural process of healing and regeneration. During a PRP hair restoration treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from a patient. This blood is then processed through a centrifuge in order to isolate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. Once isolated, the PRP is reinjected back into the scalp.
Many times, hair loss is caused by damage to the hair follicles accumulated over time. When PRP is injected into the scalp during a hair restoration treatment, the stem cells in the hair follicle are stimulated, healing the follicle and allowing it to produce newer, healthier hair.
Am I a Candidate for this Treatment?
Nearly anyone interested in promoting the growth of newer, healthier hair or correcting hair loss is a potential candidate for a PRP hair restoration treatment. However, patients that have a history of heavy smoking, drug, or alcohol use or suffer from platelet dysfunction syndromes, chronic liver disease, or metabolic disorders may not be able to undergo this treatment. PRP hair restoration may also not be safe for patients with skin diseases or cancer.
