The Beginner’s Guide to Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment for Hair Loss

“Am I going bald?”

If you’re asking yourself this question, you should know that it’s asked more often than you think and that you aren’t alone.

Pattern baldness is a genetic condition that predisposes you to hair loss and affects more than 60% of men and millions of women throughout the U.S.

So, what exactly are the true early signs of pattern baldness?

  • Thinning hair
  • Changes in your hairline
  • Above-normal hair loss after showering and brushing your hair

Balding may be natural, but modern technology has made it optional. If early signs of hair loss are affecting your physical appearance, emotional state, self-identity, etc., it’s time to seek a solution.

If you aren’t fond of scalpels and are looking for a less invasive hair restoration treatment, you need to learn about PRP therapy.

Clinical research proves that Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, a non-surgical method of managing hair loss, is cost-effective and provides a high-level of patient satisfaction.

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

In essence, it’s blood therapy.

Although it’s emerging as a hair loss treatment, PRP has been respected in the medical community as a healing treatment for injuries for quite some time.

Before you understand how PRP therapy works, you need to know that your blood is made up of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.

Platelets are the compounds that drive the effects of PRP therapy since they contain several proteins – called growth factors – that promote healing.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood that contains five to ten times the normal amount of platelets. To develop PRP plasma, your hair loss specialist will begin by drawing your blood.

Then, the blood sample will undergo a process called centrifugation that separates the platelets from blood, concentrating them.

The PRP Therapy Four-Step Treatment Process

When PRP is used as a treatment for hair loss, it is a four-step process:

Step 1: Blood is drawn, usually from your arm.

Step 2: The collection is processed via centrifugation and separates your blood sample into its components: plasma, platelets, and cells

Step 3: The platelets are then separated out with some plasma creating platelet-rich plasma.

Step 4: This PRP gets injected into your scalp to promote hair growth in thinning areas.

Here at Contemporary Hair Transplant, we use a state of the art PRP system specifically designed to consistently yield a high concentration of platelets in our PRP.

PRP is a non-invasive hair restoration treatment that combats early signs of male or female pattern hair loss by stimulating better hair growth in affected areas.

PRP Hair Loss Therapy Efficacy

If you’re starting to see early signs of hair loss, PRP is likely a fitting hair loss treatment for you because it works best on patients whose hair loss is not advanced and there is still some hair growing. It will not work on completely bald areas.

During PRP therapy, You will receive up to 3 treatments once every 2 months, then annual maintenance. Your treatment will depend on several factors that include the severity of your baldness, genetics, age, etc.

Although PRP therapy is an emerging treatment that is not yet FDA approved, its’ efficacy as a hair loss treatment has been demonstrated in several studies.

Of course, you won’t be 100% sure PRP is the proper hair restoration treatment until you schedule a consultation and receive an examination from a hair loss specialist.

The Value of Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy to Treat Hair Loss

If you are in the early stages of male or female pattern baldness, PRP therapy is an effective treatment to consider.

Surgeons report seeing 30% new hair growth in their PRP therapy patients and it is highly regarded in the medical community.

Platelet-Rich Plasma is an effective hair restoration treatment that is also:

  • Non-surgical
  • Affordable
  • Has little to no side effects

It’s the best of all worlds if you’re being proactive about your hair loss and want an early treatment to catch your pattern baldness in time.

Bottom line: If your hair loss has got you down but has still not progressed to the point where you require hair transplant surgery, schedule your Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy consultation.

The earlier you seek treatment, the better. The more your balding progresses, the more likely you will have to undergo invasive hair restoration procedures.

PRP Hair Therapy — The Anti-Aging Tool That Helps Thinning Hair and Gives You a Youthful Glow

Getting old can take a toll on your looks, affecting both hair and skin.

Typically, both men and women suffer from thinning hair as they age, with nearly 80 million people in the United States alone finding their locks a bit lackluster.

The most common cause of thinning hair is Androgenic Alopecia:

  • Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Baldness are forms of Androgenic Alopecia
  • It is also known as Androgenetic Alopecia

And faces?

Most people notice the following predictable signs of aging in their faces over time:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines around the lips
  • Depressions around the mouth and nose
  • Volume loss
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Loss of skin tone and texture

Many people struggle with their changing looks as they age. Although aging is a natural process, you can control it to some extent.

How Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Can Benefit Your Hair and Face

Don’t let age keep you from wanting to look in the mirror. PRP is a modern way to combat thinning hair and aging skin that’s simple and effective when performed by a skilled professional.

What is PRP?

PRP has been in frequent medical use since the 1980s when doctors began using it in open heart surgery and maxillofacial surgery. It has now been applied to multiple medical fields such as sports medicine, pain management, dentistry, and cosmetics.

Now, cutting-edge science has allowed us to harness its effectiveness to provide facial rejuvenation and hair restoration using the natural healing properties of your own blood.

In PRP, your blood is drawn as in a blood test. It’s run through a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets. The platelets have growth factors that nourish the skin of your scalp and face. The platelets, mixed with plasma from your blood, then can be applied to your skin and/or scalp.

PRP has been shown to stimulate growth of thinning hair follicles with minimal side-effects in randomized, placebo-controlled trials. This makes it a good solution for hair restoration, particularly for individuals just beginning to see hair loss.

As a therapy for facial rejuvenation, PRP shows remarkable ability to stimulate collagen production and repair skin on a cellular level, promoting a smoother, more youthful complexion.
