Hair restoration is a treatment that helps you get thicker and stronger hair. While there are many paths to hair restoration, from wearing wigs to hair transplants, Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center focuses on helping you regrow your natural hair through platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments.
PRP hair restoration starts with a blood draw. Your blood contains platelets, which have tremendous healing powers.
With PRP therapy, a technique called centrifugation spins your blood sample at high speeds to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. This makes a platelet-dense liquid with supercharged healing power.
When injured, your body sends platelets to the site of the injury, and they help you heal. But when you have hair loss, there are very few platelets around the dormant hair follicles. So, PRP hair restoration injects a large number of concentrated platelets directly around the inactive hair follicles.
PRP hair restoration helps both men and women improve their appearance. Your Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center provider examines your scalp, reviews your medical history, and discusses your lifestyle and background with you to determine what caused your hair loss.
Many different things can lead to hair loss, including genetics, stress, hormone fluctuations, medications, radiation, and even hairstyles. PRP is particularly effective as a treatment for androgenetic alopecia, which is related to hormones. It may also be effective for other types of hair loss. Your provider can recommend a hair restoration plan customized for your situation.
PRP hair restoration works best as a series of treatments. In most cases, you’ll have three sessions over the first month or six weeks. After the initial round of treatments, you’ll only need maintenance treatments from time to time (usually a few times a year) to maintain your results.
Your provider may also recommend using a topical treatment like minoxidil at home daily to intensify the results of the PRP hair restoration.
