Radiance Medspa is now offering Hair Rejuvenation
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, has long been used to rejuvenate skin, and is now proving to be useful for hair rejuvenation or to help or prevent hair loss or thinning of hair.
PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
Hair loss is quite common, in men and women. PRP Therapy is a great, inexpensive option for those looking to restore their confidence and regain a full head of hair. PRP is obtained by taking your own blood, spinning it for ten minutes in a very specially manufactured sterile tube to super concentrate the platelets and growth factors by over 16 times! This super concentrate contains vitamins, hormones, growth factors and more.
This “super serum” is then divided down again to only its most concentrated portion and injected sterilely back into the scalp to stimulate the growth of hair. The usual treatment, depending on the amount of hair loss, consists of three treatments like this one month apart. Yearly, or bi-yearly treatments may be suggested for maintenance. If you have had a hair transplant and have had additional hair loss this treatment can revitalize the plugs and result in an entire new head of hair!
This treatment has been a miracle for many men AND women with thinning hair as it is quick, inexpensive and uses their OWN blood so that allergy and adverse reactions are vitally impossible.
Who Are Good Candidates for PRP Hair Rejuvenation Treatment?
Patients with thinning hair and active hair follicles are good candidates for PRP hair loss treatment. Anyone considering this therapy should be in good health and should have reasonable expectations.
Patients with conditions that compromise their ability to clot or who have low platelet counts should not undergo PRP hair rejuvenation treatment.
After PRP Hair Rejuvenation Treatment
There is no downtime associated with PRP hair rejuvenation. However, you may feel some minor discomfort for a short time afterward. Some patients report that their hair starts to thin or their normal rate of hair loss increases 2 to 4 weeks after the therapy. This is, however, only a temporary return to the follicle’s initial state.
What Are the Expected Results After PRP Hair Rejuvenation Treatment?
Depending on the cause of your hair loss, the benefits of PRP hair loss therapy can last from 12 to 18 months or even longer. In the next 4 to 8 months, your hair should start to grow back. Almost all women who undergo PRP hair loss treatment return for a preventive treatment once a year.
It is possible that men will require 2 or 3 sessions of PRP hair loss treatment before they can get started with subsequent annual checkups serving as maintenance. Your healthcare provider will create a treatment plan for you that is tailored to your specific requirements.
