When you start losing your hair, you feel a reduction in self-confidence. While you can cover up your hair loss using hats, this doesn’t actually help you feel better about yourself. With platelet-rich plasma therapy from InShape Medical, serving Cary, NC and the surrounding area, you can start getting your natural hair back — and your confidence.
Definition of Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a type of treatment that uses your own natural blood platelets to stimulate new growth within your body. We also offer platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), which consists of both platelets and leucocytes that promote soft and hard tissue growth. At InShape Medical, we use PRP and PRF to promote younger-looking skin naturally. In addition, we utilize PRP to stimulate hair growth.
Acquiring Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Treatment
The first step of the process is to retrieve blood, usually from your arm. Then, we place it into a centrifuge to separate the differing fluid concentrations. A centrifuge is a machine that spins blood samples to separate their different components. It takes about 10 minutes for the machine to divide the blood into three layers. Then, we draw only the platelet-rich plasma into the syringe.
The next step is to administer the platelet-rich plasma into the scalp to promote hair growth. We inject the plasma directly into the areas where you want hair to grow.
You’ll need to have three treatments to see the full effects. We space the PRP treatments four to six weeks apart from one another. Once you have your initial three treatments, we recommend that you come into our office every four to six months for maintenance treatments.
Possible Reasons for the Effectiveness of PRP for Hair Loss
The medical community speculates that PRP injections work for hair loss because of the growth factors in them. The platelet-rich plasma signals your body’s skin cells to function, like by producing hair. It appears it stimulates the follicles, which then leads to new hair growth. Additionally, it may help maintain your hair by enhancing blood flow to the follicles. It’s also supposed to widen your hair shafts, making each follicle stronger and less prone to damage.
Benefits of PRP for Hair Loss
One of the major benefits of PRP for hair loss is that it is a natural, non-invasive hair restoration therapy. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about having an allergic reaction or your body rejecting the hair that starts growing. The treatment works with your body to promote long-term results. Since you’re using your own blood, you don’t have the risk of infection.
Certain people don’t qualify for the procedure. For instance, those who have cancer or chronic liver disease may not be able to have the procedure. We might not be able to administer the treatment if you have a low platelet count since we won’t be able to harvest enough plasma. For these reasons, before we conduct the procedure, we acquire information regarding your medical history. We want to ensure your safety as well as the effectiveness of the treatment.
