Platelet-Rich Plasma is growing in popularity as a way to address a number of things. This is due to the amazing healing capabilities of the platelets in our own blood. Hair loss is an area where PRP has shown much promise for individuals who have not had success with other treatments.
How Do PRP Treatments Work?
The first step in order to have PRP done is to have your own blood drawn. A centrifuge is then used to spin the blood at incredibly high speeds until it separates into distinct layers. The platelet-rich portion is what is used in the serum to treat hair loss.
Next, the PRP is injected in a very precise and strategic way where the hair loss is occurring. Once the PRP is injected, the growth hormones that are naturally found in it will begin to stimulate the hair follicles.
In order to be successful, most people require a series of treatments. The exact number is something that can be discussed at your consultation. Once you have completed your initial round of treatments, you will likely need a maintenance treatment every so often to maintain the results.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for PRP Treatment?
PRP is a very safe treatment because it uses your own plasma. Some things will make certain individuals better candidates for this treatment than others, including:
- Being in the earlier stages of hair loss
- Being in good overall health
- Having at least some active hair follicles
- Having realistic expectations about the treatment and results
