What is PRP hair restoration?
Hair loss is a devastating experience for anyone, regardless of age, gender or the reason why. Countless options for hair growth have left those suffering without a real solution–until now. PRP hair restoration is a proactive, therapeutic option for both men and women who are experiencing hair loss and looking for the right solution.
Because this procedure is non-surgical, it is an exciting addition to the medical and beauty communities, respectively. Our technicians at Laser Gentle MedSpa can administer this procedure on those who are looking for a comprehensive resolution to hair loss, and we are thrilled to help our patients start living their best life.
How does PRP work?
PRP uses our own blood plasma, and it contains active growth factors which promote hair growth. It increases and encourages stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions, and it comes with a number of significant advantages. Not only is PRP therapy a simple, nonsurgical procedure, but it also often produces safe and reliable results–and patients even experience a very quick recovery period from this 60-minute session of injections! Results are beautiful, natural, and long-lasting.*
What can I expect during the procedure?
When you come in for the procedure, your scalp will be given an anesthesia block to ensure that pain and discomfort is minimized. A small amount of blood will be drawn, in the same way that routine blood samples are taken in a lab. We will then prepare the PRP by centrifuging your blood sample. The centrifuge machine has a rapidly rotating container that uses centrifugal force to separate the growth factors.
Your provider will then add the PRP to a syringe and inject it into your scalp. Injections are made in order to deliver the highly-concentrated platelet-rich plasma into the skin at the level of any weak hair follicles. The entire procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete, but you will be able to drive yourself home afterwards and resume your regular routine. There is no downtime!
What can I expect from the results?
Patients usually see improvements in hair thickness, texture and growth within a few weeks after treatment.* It can take several months to see measurable results. We recommend 2-3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart, for best results.* Maintenance treatments every 1-2 years will be recommended to maintain the results of your hair restoration treatment.* No procedure can change your genetic predisposition for hair loss, so subsequent sessions are strongly encouraged.
