Hair loss can be an emotionally difficult condition. Thankfully, recent advances in tissue engineering have made it possible for Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and microneedling to effectively treat thinning hair without surgery! PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, cellular growth factors and cytokines (cell-messengers), that enhance the body’s capacity to repair and regenerate tissue. A small sample of blood is taken during your appointment and spun in a centrifuge for several minutes. The extracted plasma is then injected around the hair follicles to promote the growth of fuller thicker hair.
These growth factors bind to receptors expressed by stem cells at the base of the hair follicle and stimulate the proliferative phase of the hair growth. They also stimulate angiogenesis or the formation of new blood vessels, in order to boost blood supply and restores proper nutrients to the deprived hair follicles. PRP hair restoration is a fast outpatient procedure. Patients often notice improvement in hair texture, thickness, and regrowth within three weeks, however, it typically takes three to six months before measurable results are seen. Post-treatment restrictions are minimal and you may resume your schedule as soon as you leave our office!
