How PRP Therapy Is Transforming the Landscape of Hair Loss Treatment
Losing your hair can be frustrating and have you wanting to find a way to get your hair back to being thicker and fuller. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary treatment that is being used to treat hair loss.
PRP therapy works using your own body to help you regrow your hair. Your own blood is drawn and run through a centrifuge to concentrate the number of platelets in your plasma. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected into your scalp, especially in areas where there are bald spots. Typically, multiple PRP treatments are recommended by your doctor for the process to be effective.
So how does it work? PRP works because platelets are the body’s natural healing power and can stimulate the body to release growth factors. Platelets are made in our bone marrow and are commonly associated with blood clotting to stop bleeding from injuries. But that’s not all that platelets do; they also play a critical role in cell production and repair. When cells associated with hair growth are activated, your hair will begin to grow, increasing hair volume in bald spots and thickness all around the scalp.
PRP has long been used to treat injuries such as tennis elbow and other muscle and tendon issues and now it has been shown to be an effective treatment that is changing the landscape of hair loss treatment. PRP treatment in Philadelphia is available now.
When Do You Start Seeing Results from PRP Hair Treatment?
PRP for hair loss is not an immediate cure for hair loss, it takes time. Most people start to see results three months after treatment but full results, where you can clearly see that you have fuller, thicker, hair can take anywhere from between six to twelve months.
This is because it takes the body time to produce the cells associated with hair growth to the level needed to grow your hair back to where it used to be. Additionally, for people with normal hereditary hair loss or hair loss associated with medication, annual follow up treatments may be necessary to maintain your hair growth.
Can PRP Regrow Hair in Bald Areas?
PRP treatment has been shown to be effective at treating bald spots. In fact, PRP is injected directly into the scalp in bald spot areas. When these bald spots are targeted with PRP injections, the body begins to release the all-important growth factor the stimulate cell growth in these bald areas.
PRP hair growth injection works best when you catch your hair loss at an early stage. This is why when you start to notice that your hair is thinning, or you are starting to lose your hair, you should talk to your doctor. However, PRP hair loss treatment can be beneficial to anyone experiencing hair loss and can be an effective treatment for men of all ages experiencing hair loss or thinning.
