Are you suffering from male or female pattern baldness? The hair loss condition is prevalent in young and old alike. Approximately 50 million men and 30 million women contend with thinning hair in the United States. In the past, there were very few hair regrowth options, but a new treatment has emerged known as PRP (platelet rich plasma). The innovative hair loss injections first appeared in the 1990s and have gained widespread popularity. PRP is not only used to encourage new hair growth but is also used in skin rejuvenation to promote collagen and elastin production so you look years younger.
PRP Treatments: Are These Hair Loss Injections Right for You?
During the treatment, your own blood is drawn and then processed through a centrifuge machine to activate the platelets. The serum is then reinjected into the balding area to accelerate renewed skin cells and stimulate hair follicles which encourages renewed hair growth.
The PRP Procedure is Easy and Quick
Unlike hair transplant surgery, there is no downtime involved in PRP. The procedure is done in the office, and you can immediately return to work. Many people have the process done on their lunch break. The entire system from start to finish typically takes less than 30 minutes. Three to four treatments are usually required, and they are spaced about four to eight weeks apart.
How PRP Encourages Hair Density Growth
Hair density automatically improves as a result of the anagen-associated angiogenesis which is the active hair growth cycle. PRP prolongs the anagen (active growth phase), so you have more time to grow a denser head of hair. Balding men under forth show the most significant improvements with PRP.
Benefits of PRP for Hair Growth
- Made from your blood, so you never have to fear blood contamination
- An all natural treatment method that involves no harsh chemicals or medications
- Completely hypoallergenic
- Non-surgical. Unlike hair transplants that can cause significant downtime and discomfort.
- The injections are virtually pain-free because small needles are used to inject the solution.
- No recovery time needed. You can immediately return to work and your daily functions.
- Results are natural. You regrow your hair for a thicker more full appearance.
- Hair follicles are naturally stimulated for optimum performance.
Is PRP the Right Choice for You?
Sadly, the treatment is not 100 percent effective on everyone. If you have fully bald regions then it will not regrow hair in the bare spots. PRP only works on thinning hair. There must be active hair growth in the region in order for the treatment to be effective.
