Something everyone deals with at one point in their life is hair loss or hair thinning, or both. While we all try everything we can to take care of our hair and maintain its health, sometimes aging and genetics work against us. With all the solutions out there you may think that hair loss or thinning could be worse; however, these solutions are not always going to be ideal for you. From wigs to hair plugs, companies have come out with everything under the sun to help us all boost our confidence when we experience the decline of our hair. The one thing that does work though is hair restoration. This is a solution that will boost natural hair growth and be more worthwhile in the long term. The best part is that it restores the hair to its original volume and body, something a wig or hair plugs simply cannot do. If hair restoration sounds like something you may be interested in, our staff at East-West Physicians are here for you.
What Exactly is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration, otherwise known as platelet-rich plasma hair restoration, is a natural method of encouraging hair growth. Many hair growth procedures these days require invasive methods that simply aren’t for everyone. But with the PRP method, you can get all of the benefits of hair restoration without going under the knife. This method works by you using your blood platelets to encourage hair growth and volume. Our team will essentially combine these blood platelets with proteins and growth factors and inject it into your scalp. Don’t worry though, we will be sure to place a numbing gel on the scalp before administering the injection. This method is so successful because it is your own body’s blood platelets assisting with hair growth. During the invasive procedures, follicles are instead relocated. The relocation, although sometimes successful, runs the risk of your body rejecting the follicle thus seeing no hair growth.
What Does the Appointment Look Like?
Your first appointment at East-West Physicians is going to be a consultation. At this consultation, we will discuss your past medical history with you to ensure this procedure is safe for you to undergo. Once we determine it’s safe we can go ahead and have our specialists examine your scalp. This examination will allow us to get a better look at the needs of your scalp and how we can best treat the area. During this examination, we will explain the procedure to you and answer any questions you may have. We want to make sure you feel comfortable with the treatment and express any concerns you may have. Once all of this is out of the way we can then begin the treatment. We usually start the treatment off by collecting a small amount of your blood, this is for the plasma we will mix with the proteins and growth factors. After this, we numb the scalp and begin the injections.
When Will You See Results?
Since hair loss is something that comes from aging and genetics, there is only so much we can do to fight it. While PRP hair restoration is an effective method of growing new hair, it isn’t a cure for hair loss. Although, keep in mind that your new hair growth will be healthy, thick, and match your natural hair. Most patients see results somewhere between 2-3 sessions. While you can come in for your sessions whenever you want as long as your doctor okays it, we recommend our patients get follow up treatments every 3 months. This way you can continually see hair growth.
