Hair Restoration Using PRP: How Does it Work?

    Platelet-rich plasma therapy, also known as PRP therapy, can show promising results for hair restoration. The benefits of this amazing treatment, which uses your own platelets to encourage blood flow to the scalp in order to wake up dormant hair follicles, are only just becoming known. At Simply.Aesthetics we offer this hair restoration treatment to benefit men and women who are experiencing hair loss or hair thinning.

    Who Can Benefit from PRP Therapy?

    The vast majority of people with thinning hair, male or female, can benefit from PRP therapy as part of a targeted approach to encouraging hair regrowth. However, you should avoid using this treatment if your hair loss is related to an autoimmune disease or hormonal issue.

    If you are otherwise healthy and are looking for another option for hair restoration, then PRP therapy can be used alongside treatments like Minoxidil (Rogaine), low-level laser therapy (LLLT), or vitamins and supplements. PRP can be used after a hair transplant surgery in order to promote the new hair to grow quickly.

    The Treatment Process

    A trained member of our team will take some of your blood, in exactly the same way as if you were having blood tests done by your primary physician. The blood will be placed into a centrifuge to separate your platelet-rich plasma from your red blood cells. The plasma is then injected into areas of your scalp where you are suffering from thinning hair. This “signals” the hair follicles to wake up and grow new hair. It can also stimulate the production of collagen, which is vital for healthier hair.

    After PRP Treatment

    After PRP therapy, you should be able to go about your day. You may feel some mild soreness or discomfort at the injection sites, but you should be able to manage this with over-the-counter pain medications.

    PRP therapy should be administered on a regular schedule (such as every three months) to encourage continuous hair regrowth through follicle stimulation. You should start seeing results anywhere from six weeks to three months after your first session.

    PRP Therapy for Hair Restoration: Simple Steps to Success

    Using PRP for hair restoration can show promising re-growth over time. If you’re struggling with thinning hair and want to restore your scalp health, as well as your confidence, adding PRP to your care regimen can be a great option.
