Men and women alike struggle with hair loss, which can cause embarrassment and significantly impact your life. Your genetics play a large role in your risk of hair loss as up to 95 percent of alopecia is caused by hereditary factors, but illness, medications, stress, and your diet can also be an underlying cause. There are over-the-counter products that promise to thicken your hair and improve growth rates, but these options often fall short. Surgical procedures are available, but there’s another less-invasive treatment that many men and women are choosing for hair restoration—PRP Therapy.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is found in your blood. The treatment involves taking a blood sample, putting it through a centrifuge to isolate the PRP, and injecting the plasma into your scalp after using a topical numbing agent to avoid moderate to severe discomfort. At RejuvenationMD® – Aesthetic Skin Treatment & Wellness Center, we follow up PRP for hair restoration with a microneedling treatment to further stimulate your skin and hair follicle response.
There are just two drugs that are FDA-approved to address pattern baldness: Rogaine and Propecia. Rogaine is a solution that is applied directly to your scalp and rubbed into the area. However, just 10-14 percent of people who use Rogaine experience improved hair growth. The topical lotion can, however, help slow hair loss. Propecia is a pill for men with pattern hair loss. Surgical options are also available for hair replacement such as micro-grafting, slit grafting, or scalp reduction.
There are many reasons why men and women are choosing PRP therapy over traditional treatments and procedures, including:
- PRP for Hair Restoration is Cost-Effective: PRP therapy for pattern hair loss and similar conditions including Hypotrichosis, Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis is more affordable than other methods. PRP results can last 18 months or longer, making it a cost-effective way to restore hair growth.
- Efficacy of PRP for Hair Restoration: PRP Therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that several research studies have shown is an effective way to promote hair growth. Women may experience improvement after just one treatment, while men may need multiple sessions, depending on the extent of hair loss and its cause. Once you’ve reached your desired results, yearly maintenance treatments are required.
- PRP Treatments are Simple and Quick: PRP treatments for hair restoration at RejuvenationMD® – Aesthetic Skin Treatment & Wellness Center often take less than 90 minutes to complete. The three-step process is simple, and you’ll begin to notice results 4-8 months after your initial PRP session.
