Those suffering from thinning hair or hair loss now have an excellent option for non-invasive treatment in platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) hair restoration. At YourSkinRN in Kitchener, Ontario, we offer PRP hair restoration treatments for both men and women.
What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration isolates platelets from your own blood and uses them to stimulate follicles in areas of hair loss. This slows down hair loss and can even regrow hair.
Platelets are full of human growth factors, and their job within the body is to rush to the site of injuries and stimulate new, healthy tissue growth. They also signal to stem cells to regenerate injured tissue cells of whatever type the body needs.
How It Works
A simple blood draw removes a bit of blood from your body. That blood is then spun in a centrifuge, which separates the parts of the blood by their molecular weight. When the plasma is isolated from the red blood cells, it is purified and then injected into areas of hair loss.
The PRP signals to the body to send more blood flow to the area. This has the effect of stimulating new follicle growth, “waking up” dormant follicles, and causing hair follicles to stay in their active growth phase for a longer time.
The number of PRP hair restoration treatments any patient will need depends on the individual, the amount of hair loss they are suffering, and the severity of that loss. In general, most clients need about four to five initial sessions to reach their final goals. Some people will need more sessions and some fewer.
The final results of successful treatment are more hair follicles and increased thickness in hair shaft growth. These results normally last as long as you keep up once-a-year maintenance treatments, but your personal schedule of treatment will depend on your hair shedding rate. We can help you get the results you’re looking for and then keep them with the right treatment schedule.
FAQ About PRP Hair Restoration
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
Nearly any healthy man or woman can benefit from this treatment. The earlier you get started, however, the better your results are likely to be. Once hair follicles have completely died, PRP does not help. When most people first notice hair loss and hair thinning, the follicles are usually not dead but have started spending too much time in the “resting” phase and not enough in the active growing phase. This makes early treatment very effective.
What Are the Benefits?
This is a nonsurgical treatment with no downtime and no significant risks to be concerned about. Because the PRP is taken from your own blood, there is no need to worry about an allergic reaction or rejection. Reviews of treatment find that both men and women experience increased regrowth and hair thickness after PRP. Finally, this treatment is far less expensive than more aggressive treatments like hair transplant surgery.
