Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) for Hair Loss
Promotes collagen production, regenerates tissue, tightens skin and stimulate hair growth
What is Platelet Rich Plasma therapy?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP), is a regenerative medicine treatment that is getting a lot of attention for antiaging treatments. PRP requires drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and running through a machine called a centrifuge to separate the red & white blood cells from the plasma. Once the plasma separates the serum, rich in platelets and essential growth proteins, can be used to stimulate growth of your natural hair follicles. The serum is injected into the balding or thinning areas on the scalp. To obtain satisfactory results we recommend receiving multiple treatment to see hair follicles thicken and improve overall hair density. This simple office procedure can be suitable for both men and women.
What can I expect when undergoing PRP treatment?
When coming into our office in Longmont, Colorado be prepared to have a small amount of your blood drawn. Once the vial is full the tube is placed in our centrifuge, spinning at a high speed to separate the blood into layers. The desired serum contains many healing components such as platelets and growth proteins. The serum is then injected into the desired treatment area on the scalp. Once injected the site will be massaged across the scalp to create microscopic channels that allow the PRP to penetrate and stimulate the hair follicles beneath. Treatment takes between 45 minutes to one hour and is generally little to no downtime. Most patients resume their daily routine immediately afterward and can shampoo and condition their hair the same day.
What kind of results can I expect?
Individual results vary, as with any treatment. We recommend treatments to be coupled in a package of at least 3 treatments. A consultation will provide a customized treatment plan to determine how many treatments will be recommended. A follow-up consultation after 8-12 months to measure efficacy. However, the majority of our patients enjoy significantly noticeable improvement after 3-6 treatments. Maintenance treatments are recommended in the future for overall upkeep.
Hair loss can be embarrassing for both men and women. With PRP therapy, you can experience thicker, healthier hair with no scars, little to no downtime, no side effects.
