How Platelet-Rich Plasma Stimulates Hair Growth
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary treatment that works with your body to release growth factors and heal numerous ailments including PRP treatment hair loss procedures. If you have tried other options for hair loss and they have failed or are just experiencing hair loss in general, PRP hair loss treatment could be the solution you have been looking for.
PRP’s Growth Factors
While hair thinning and loss can occur at any age, it is typically associated with ageing. As we age, our body doesn’t create as many new cells as it used, doesn’t do as good of a job at repairing existing cells and critical hormone levels, such as testosterone, start to drop. All of these factors can contribute to hair thinning and hair loss.
PRP procedure works with your body to release what is known as growth factors. Growth factors work by stimulating cell production, helping repair tissue, and generally helping people heal from injuries. These growth factors can also play a critical role in stimulating hair growth by stimulating cell production in the scalp associated with hair growth.
With Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, your body will begin releasing these growth factors, increasing cell production associated with hair growth in your scalp, and hair loss will begin reversing, allowing you to have thicker, fuller hair that you used to have.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP therapy works with your own plasma to create a hair loss treatment just for you. For PRP therapy, blood will be drawn from you by your doctor in the same manner blood is drawn anytime. This blood is then run through a centrifuge separating out the plasma and creating plasma that is rich in platelets. Once your blood is run through the centrifuge to create platelet-rich plasma, it is then injected into multiple areas of hair loss in your scalp.
This is important because platelets are the body’s natural healing power and the key factor in PRP for hair growth. 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 releasing the aforementioned growth factors that play a critical role in cell production and repair. When cells associated with hair growth are stimulated, your hair will begin to grow, increasing hair volume in bald spots and thickness all around the scalp.
Who Is a Suitable Candidate for PRP?
PRP treatment is an excellent option for anyone experiencing male pattern baldness and is an excellent alternative for people who are unable to get a hair transplant for any reason. PRP for hair loss works best for people who still have some hair even though it is thinning.
The 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 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.
PRP Therapy Process
As previously mentioned, the PRP therapy process works using your own blood, run through a centrifuge to create platelet-rich plasma, and then injected into the scalp where balding is occurring. Generally, PRP therapy is conducted three to four times over a three-to-four-month period and give you lasting results. However, your doctor may recommend that you receive one or two PRP therapy treatments each subsequent year to keep getting the best results.
Hair regrowth with PRP typically starts to occur within four to six weeks after treatment and will continue to enhance hair growth for six to nine months after treatment, leaving you with long lasting results that can always be supplemented by additional treatments if recommended by your doctor. The side effects of PRP therapy are relatively mild and may include scalp pain from the injection.
