PRP Hair Thinning
Thinning hair is a common issue that comes with age, and it affects both men and women. If you’re looking for a treatment that helps stimulate your natural hair growth, PRP hair restoration can help. This procedure combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) made from your own blood to stimulate collagen production and encourage the production of new cells.
Treatment & Results
The first step in PRP hair restoration treatment is a simple blood draw. The sample is then sent through a centrifuge that isolates the PRP from the other components of your blood. After this, the microneedling procedure begins, using extremely small needles to inject the PRP into the selected area.
Results from PRP treatment for hair restoration usually start to appear between 4 and 8 months post-procedure, but you may start to notice new and increased growth as early as 2 months. Improvement is usually noted for up to 12 months. Hair restoration treatments include follow-up appointments every 4 months to track hair growth and schedule any necessarily additional treatments.
Some mild swelling and discomfort may exist for the first few days after treatment. Your provider may recommend an over-the-counter pain medication to help decrease pain and swelling. PRP hair restoration treatments don’t require much downtime, and you can wash your hair as normal immediately after treatment. You should avoid any intense exercise or activity until the swelling has gone down.
If you’re experiencing thinning hair and a more noticeable scalp, PRP hair restoration treatments can help you encourage new growth by working with your body’s natural processes. Contact the team at Eye for Beauty Aesthetics today to schedule your consultation and get more information.
