What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?
Many men and women overtime struggle with male and female pattern hair loss. If you’re in the Coconut Creek area and struggle with pattern hair loss, don’t lose hope! With the medical professionals at East West Physicians, we have a hair loss treatment option that has already helped hundreds of people! The treatment option is called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment and is a natural alternative to more invasive hair restoration methods. By using your own blood platelets, enriched with essential proteins and growth factors, this procedure promotes thick, healthy hair growth. PRP Hair Restoration stimulates follicles for regrowth, giving you back your own natural hair. Unlike surgical hair restoration which relocates follicles from one area of your head to another, PRP treatment does not have a risk of rejection or improper implantation.
The PRP Hair Restoration Process
The PRP hair restoration process cannot begin without a consultation with one of our PRP hair restoration specialists at East-West Physicians. Our specialists will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure by going through with a thorough examination of your scalp and determining your best course of action. Once one of our medical professionals has signed off that PRP Hair Restoration is right for you, we then will begin with the PRP Hair Restoration Process.
First off, one of our physicians will draw a small amount of your blood to be placed into a centrifuge, which will then separate the blood from the plasma. The areas of thinning hair or hair loss will be administered with a local anesthetic to numb the areas to be injected. Once numbed, blood with platelets and other substances like stem cells is injected into the areas of thinning hair or hair loss in the scalp. Although this sounds like a difficult procedure, it is actually extremely safe and after multiple sessions, all of your hair will reach the growth stage. One should note that PRP hair restoration is not a permanent solution to hair loss and will require follow up treatments every three months. Clients can expect to see results after two to three sessions, with new hair growing in thick, strong, and malleable. New hair can be cut, straightened, braided, washed, and dyed because it is your own naturally growing hair.
The Importance of Multiple Treatments
Multiple sessions for PRP for hair restoration are essential to the process of re-growing both the hair and the hair follicles. To understand why, let’s look at the stages that hair goes through. There’s the dormant stage, the growth stage, and the shedding stage. By treating the hair follicles and surrounding area while in the dormant stage, your hair follicles are will return stronger and fuller during the growth stage. The reason PRP Hair Restoration takes multiple sessions is to ensure all the hair follicles have been injected so you get all of your hair to re-grow.
