PRP Hair Restoration San Diego
PRP hair restoration is an injection-based treatment that uses the body’s own natural healing factors to combat pattern baldness conditions like androgenetic alopecia. If you’re suffering from thinning hair or bald patches, you may have already tried salves, creams, and other hair-restoration options that offer short-term results but never really last. You need to tackle the root cause of the problem. PRP injections provide effective and long-lasting results.
PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) HAIR RESTORATION Q&A
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Whenever a person is injured, platelets in their blood move to the injury site to stop bleeding and promote wound healing and rejuvenation. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration makes use of these platelets to scientifically ensure better hair thickness, hair quantity, density, and shine.
Patients have plenty of hair follicles that are alive but aren’t receiving the growth impulse that makes them generate new hairs. With the help of PRP hair-restoration therapy, blood circulation in the scalp is improved, triggering the natural growth mechanisms in the follicles to create new hairs.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS PRP HAIR RESTORATION?
The Journal of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery noted that a test conducted on more than 250 participants receiving PRP hair restoration showed promising results. The treatment successfully improved the diameter, density, and quantity of hair follicles.
The Journal of Dermatologic Surgery noted that a test conducted on more than 460 people revealed the success of PRP in treating androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata.
The studies showed that people with mild to moderate hair loss are the most promising candidates for this therapy. Additionally, patients with severe conditions may require more sessions of PRP hair restoration to make an impact.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
PRP hair-restoration therapy takes an hour to complete and is an outpatient treatment. A medical professional draws blood from a vein in your arm and loads that blood into a centrifuge, which is used to separate out the platelets and plasma from the blood’s other components.
The valuable platelet-rich plasma is drawn into a syringe and then carefully injected into the designated scalp area chosen for hair growth. Any mild tingling is only temporary and subsides shortly.
Patients can go home by themselves and immediately return to their normal daily routine. A healthy diet and lifestyle help to encourage and preserve the effects of the treatment.
