Do You Suffer from Hair Loss or Thinning?

by Hair Loss Specialists

Do you suffer from hair loss or hair thinning? Are you SICK and TIRED of losing your hair? If so, you might be the ideal candidate for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss!

THERE IS HELP AVAILABLE! PRP therapy is a non-surgical hair restoration treatment that targets scalp areas that are either thinning or bald, in order to regenerate them with natural thicker hair. During the procedure, a hair restoration specialist pumps scalp areas with platelet-rich plasma to restore hair and stimulate production of new hair from inactive hair follicles, with reduced swelling and irritation. Platelet rich plasma contains more than 30 growth factors that help regenerate hair follicle tissues and lead to healthy hair growth.

Which Hair Loss Conditions Does PRP Therapy Treat?

PRP therapy for hair loss treats a few hair loss conditions, including:

  • Alopecia Areata, also known as spot baldness, is a highly inflammatory autoimmune disease in which hair follicle stem cells become dormant. PRP therapy activates dormant hair follicle stem cells and leads to significant hair growth in bald spots in both genders.
  • Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, typically causes crown balding and a receding hairline at the temples. PRP therapy helps maximize hair growth for men with this hair loss condition.
  • Feminine Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as female pattern baldness, causes hair thinning on top of female patients’ scalps. PRP therapy helps reduce hair thinning and increase hair growth for women with female pattern baldness.

What Does The PRP Hair Therapy Procedure Involve?

Once a hair restoration specialist decides that you are an ideal candidate for PRP hair therapy, they will take a small blood sample and process it to gather a PRP sample with healing platelets and growth factors concentrated. The specialist will then map out the scalp area, clean it with isopropyl alcohol, numb the area with a local anesthesia and inject a concentrate of PRP and pure PRP into the scalp. The doctor will ask that you leave the concentrate on your scalp overnight and wash it off the next day.

What are the Potential Side Effects of PRP Hair Therapy?

Possible side effects include mild swelling on the forehead due to local anesthesia, mild headache and possible tenderness of the scalp after PRP injection. These effects should disappear within a day or two after treatment.
