PRP Hair Restoration
CONVENIENTLY LOCATED TO SERVE BURLINGTON
PRP hair restoration in Burlington gives hope to balding individuals who want to restore fuller and thicker hair. In recent years, it has been found that platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains growth factors and cytokines, which promote cell regeneration and healing. When injected into the scalp, this substance effectively stimulates hair regrowth.
What is PRP Hair Restoration?
Platelet rich plasma treatment, or PRP for hair loss, is a revolutionary hair growth therapy. PRP treatments have recorded a nearly 80% success rate; however, the results can vary from person to person. PRP therapy uses a small amount of the patient’s own blood to create platelet-rich plasma. Its high concentration of growth factors allows it to repair damaged hair follicles. While it can take a few months to see results, they are well worth the wait.
Ideal Candidates for PRP Hair Restoration
If you are suffering from male or female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), then you may be a good candidate for PRP hair restoration. Women who have thinning hair due to menopause may also undergo PRP therapy. It is not recommended for individuals who have health conditions like bleeding disorders or lupus.
To determine your eligibility for PRP therapy, a physical examination of your scalp will be performed. Photographs may be taken for before-and-after comparison. You will be asked about when your hair started to thin in order to determine potential causes, and questions will be asked about various lifestyle factors and habits.
Your medical history, including current medications and underlying illnesses, will be reviewed to ascertain your candidacy for the procedure. Finally, a PRP hair restoration treatment plan will be developed to address your condition.
How is PRP Hair Restoration Performed
Like having a blood test, your blood will first be collected from a vein. This blood is put in a centrifuge for 15 minutes to be spun down. Through this spinning process the platelets are concentrated. The concentrated platelets, which now contain the abundant growth factors, are ready to be used on the scalp.
Before undergoing the platelet rich plasma therapy for hair loss, the patient’s scalp will be numbed. The PRP will then be injected and/or micro penned onto the scalp. You may return to daily activities with almost no down time, however there may be slight discomfort at the treatment site and your scalp will require sun protection.
Who performs PRP Hair Restoration
All treatments are performed by Registered Nurses.
There is no significant recovery period necessary after PRP treatments. You may be able to get back to your usual routine right away. There may be minor pain, discomfort, headaches, itching, or swelling at the injection sites. Soreness may persist with succeeding sessions to promote more hair regrowth.
Cost of PRP Hair Restoration
The cost of PRP hair restoration varies from one individual to another. The overall cost may be impacted by the total number of PRP injection sessions necessary, along with the patient’s hair-regrowth goals.
