PRP Hair Loss Treatment
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, has revolutionized aesthetics. One widespread use for PRP is hair regeneration for people who are experiencing the early stages of hair loss. Thinning hair affects a vast majority of men and women as they enter their thirties, forties, and beyond. Some patients are genetically programmed for baldness as early as their twenties.
Hair restoration with PRP
The early stages of balding can negatively impact your self-confidence or make you look far older than you are. PRP hair treatment in Houston offers a natural, non-surgical way to boost hair growth and help trigger the body to produce more natural hair in the thinning areas.
Treating the causes of hair loss
Although you may be prone to losing a few hairs each day, it does not lead to noticeable hair loss as the follicle is still active. Hair moves through several phases, one of which is shedding, after which the hair is regenerated – if the follicle is healthy and producing. When the follicle becomes inactive is when you will start to experience thinning hair, or your hairline starts to recede.
While hair transplant therapy may be needed if the hair loss happened long ago, PRP therapy treats the underlying causes of hair loss by restoring life to dying hair follicles. PRP therapy can:
- Bring inactive follicles back to life, causing a resurgence of hair growth in thinning areas
- Thicken hair that has become thin and fine
- Restore youthful vibrancy and luster to your hair
By treating the causes of hair loss with PRP therapy, you can ward off the progression of hair loss in the early stages.
What is PRP, and how does it work?
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a concentrated, regenerative “booster shot” produced from your own blood and then injected into your scalp. Platelets are cells in your blood that trigger blood clotting and promote healing, growth, and regeneration, and plasma is the liquid part of your blood. By drawing a small quantity of blood and separating the platelets, we create PRP serum: a shot of your plasma with a concentrated amount of growth-stimulating platelets.
If you have lost too much hair for PRP hair loss therapy to work effectively on its own, PRP can be combined with a hair transplant to create a comprehensive hair rejuvenation system to restore lost hair in balding areas, from hairline to crown.
What to expect with PRP hair loss therapy
The entire procedure is quick and relatively painless. A PRP hair treatment can require as little as thirty minutes, and typically no longer than an hour. Patients usually report the procedure as being easy to tolerate. The sensation is similar to the experience of any injection.
Recovery time after PRP hair injections
TPRP hair loss treatment involves minimal recovery time. Our patients typically resume their routine after the procedure is complete, with no downtime. You may need to avoid vigorous activity or exercise for one or two days.
Most patients notice increased hair growth three to six months after treatment, with further improvements over time. Some patients see optimum results with only one treatment, while others may need additional treatments.
