Can PRP Injections Treat Hair Loss Without Surgery?
- Posted on: Jul 15 2022
Hair loss is a common struggle that affects millions of people. It can cause those afflicted by it to feel self-conscious, and that in turn can make them hesitant to reach out to a professional for help. However, you need to know that hair loss treatments work best when started early. There are safe and effective options like PRP injections that can avoid the need for a hair transplant.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for hair restoration is a relatively simple three-step treatment that is performed in our medical spa offices. It involves drawing a small amount of your blood, spinning it in a centrifuge to isolate the beneficial component called plasma, and then strategically injecting it into your scalp.
The treatment causes very little pain aside from the pinch of the blood draw. Typically, it can be performed during a relatively short and tolerable appointment. A series of appointments spaced several weeks apart are usually needed to achieve the most significant and visible results. Maintenance treatments may also be recommended to protect your new hair growth.
PRP for hair loss is thought to work by isolating the proteins naturally present in your blood, which contain a lot of growth factors and stem cells. The idea is that this potent mixture has healing properties. When injected, it has the ability to nurture hair follicles and improve their environment. That will give the follicles a chance to grow better and longer-lasting hair.
Another benefit of PRP injections is that they are thought to help prevent future hair loss. PRP can be a great addition to your hair health routine. Other good measures include wearing your hair in loose styles and avoiding damaging perms, relaxer treatments, and hair dye.
