Hair growth supplements, special shampoos, hair sprays – you’ve tried it all and you’re still losing your hair! Male and female pattern baldness is a common issue shared by a huge chunk of the population. Sadly, not everyone can rock the bald look, some of us still prefer having that luxurious head of hair. Laser Aesthetics knows how unpleasant hair loss can be, that is why we’re so happy to offer our PRP hair restoration treatment to our beautiful Cape Cod community.
What is PRP for Hair?
In the case of hair regeneration, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been proven to show tissue healing and regeneration properties. This non-surgical option works by using your own PRP to stimulate hair follicle growth in thinning areas. When applied to the scalp, the concentrated platelets and proteins extracted from your blood help stimulate hair follicles, promoting continual hair regeneration well after the treatment is completed.
PRP is a safe treatment for many patients with hair loss. However, patients with active scalp infections or histories of shingles on the scalp, diabetes, and coagulation disease are not good candidates. Similarly, those on blood thinning and/or immunosuppressive medications may not apply.
Please note that this treatment will not help with hair loss if follicles are completely lost. As such, it is best to try PRP as soon as possible (when hair loss symptoms first appear).
PRP for Hair Procedure
Like with the PRP skin treatment, we will begin by extracting blood and separating plasma via a centrifuge. Afterward, we will inject the PRP into your scalp; a local anesthetic will be applied to minimize pain and discomfort. Typically, 3 treatments at 6 week intervals each are recommended for best results. Additional treatments can be done after 6 months or a year if needed.
PRP Hair Restoration Results
Recovery from the PRP treatment involves some soreness and swelling of the scalp. However, these symptoms will only last 6 hours and should be completely resolved in 2 days. During this time, it’s important to avoid vigorous physical activity and sweating to avoid any additional irritation. Results vary from patient-to-patient, but can usually be seen in as early as 1 to 2 months. Optimal results can be seen roughly 3 to 6 months after the procedure.
