Many people are concerned about hair restoration, and there are several treatment options available to address this issue. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the most recent and effective treatments.
PRP therapy has grown in popularity as a hair restoration treatment in recent years. It is a non-invasive, safe treatment that can help people regain confidence and look and feel their best.
PRP therapy is a non-invasive, natural method of hair restoration. The procedure involves extracting a high concentration of platelets from the patient’s own blood, which contain growth factors that promote hair growth.
These platelets are then injected into the scalp to stimulate hair follicle growth, improve the health of existing hair follicles, and thicken hair.
PRP therapy stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Platelets in our blood are in charge of clotting and healing injuries. They contain growth factors that can stimulate the formation of new cells and tissues.
When PRP is injected into the scalp, it stimulates the growth of new hair follicles while also improving the health of existing follicles. This results in thicker, more full-bodied hair growth.
PRP therapy typically consists of three steps.
To begin, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and placed in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets from the other blood components. The platelets are then mixed with an activating solution before being injected into the scalp at areas of hair loss or thinning.
PRP therapy has a number of advantages for people looking to restore their hair. These advantages include:
Non-surgical: Because PRP therapy does not require any surgical incisions, it is a safer and more comfortable alternative to surgical hair restoration procedures.
Natural: Because PRP therapy uses the patient’s own blood, it is a natural and safe treatment that does not use any foreign substances.
Effective: PRP therapy has been shown to be extremely effective in stimulating hair growth and restoring hair density.
Few Side Effects: PRP therapy has few side effects and is regarded as a safe treatment option for hair restoration.
No Downtime: Patients can resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure, with no downtime required.
Affordable: PRP therapy is a more affordable option for hair restoration than other treatments such as hair transplant surgery.
PRP therapy is appropriate for the majority of people who are experiencing hair loss or thinning.
It is a successful treatment option for both men and women of all ages. However, before deciding on PRP therapy, you should consult with a qualified healthcare professional like Dr Rene Garcia to see what options there are for you.
It is important to note that PRP therapy may not be effective for people who have advanced hair loss or scalp scarring. Other hair restoration treatments, such as hair transplant surgery, may be recommended in such cases.
The number of PRP therapy sessions needed for optimal results varies according to the degree of hair loss or thinning. Patients will typically require multiple treatment sessions, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. This allows for gradual hair growth and thickening.
PRP therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for hair restoration with few side effects. Mild swelling, redness, or tenderness at the injection site may occur in some patients. These side effects, however, are only temporary and usually disappear within a few days.
Patients may experience infection or bleeding at the injection site in rare cases. Any concerns should be discussed with Dr. Garcia prior to the procedure.
It is critical to discuss any medications or medical conditions with your healthcare provider prior to undergoing PRP therapy. To reduce the risk of bleeding, it is also advised to avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements for a few days before the procedure.
Furthermore, staying hydrated and eating a healthy diet prior to the procedure will ensure that your body is in the best possible condition to promote healing.
Plasma is a component of our blood that contains important proteins, salts, and other substances.
Platelets are small cell fragments that contain growth factors which help repair damaged tissue.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a concentrated form of Platelets separated from the plasma by centrifugation, and is rich in growth factors essential for cell regeneration – helping restore and rejuvenate skin tissue.
Cellenis® PRP’s proprietary separation gel allows for an even more effective concentration of PRP than traditional methods.
It’s a game changer in treating skin aging and providing a natural solution to achieve younger-looking, glowing skin with no surgery or downtime.
