Hair Restoration Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) involves a series of injections for re-growing hair in balding patients. PRP for repairing tissue is not a new technology. Recently, experts have found its potential role in re-growth of hair, and an increasing amount of evidence shows the efficacy of PRP for hair restoration.
Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides PRP injectable treatment for hair restoration to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations.
Understanding PRP Hair Restoration
Your blood will be drawn and spun in a centrifuge system in PRP injection hair restoration treatment. This will be done for segregating the plasma from blood cells. Platelets and growth factors will be extracted from the sample after enhancing it with proteins and other nutrients.
These will be injected back into the scalp where there is thinning hair. The medical spa treatment is minimally invasive in nature and needs only local anesthesia. The injected platelets address hair loss by helping inactive or implanted hair follicles enter an active growth phase.
Suitable Candidacy for PRP Hair Regrowth
Androgenetic alopecia or genetic thinning of hair can be targeted by PRP. This affects both men and women. Researchers indicate that individuals that have recently begun to lose hair make ideal candidates. Typically, PRP med spa hair restoration treatment may not be suitable for people that are completely bald.
It can be useful for patients suffering from hair loss because of the following medical reasons:
- Alopecia Totalis
- Alopecia Areata
- Male Pattern Hair Loss
- Female Pattern Hair Loss
- Hair loss due to drug side effects, iron deficiency, and metabolic conditions
PRP Therapy Results
PRP therapy in most cases offers dramatic improvements in hair growth. It enhances hair thickness, density, and elasticity. The results of the medical spa procedure will not be noticeable until 6 – 8 weeks of the first session. Full results may take up to a year to become noticeable after the first treatment.
Research on PRP Hair Restoration Effectiveness
The results of clinical studies are highly encouraging about the efficiency of PRP and the sustainability of outcomes. In a study involving 11 participants, it was found that hair loss significantly reduced between the first injection and the fourth. The results also noted an increase in the average number of hair follicles per square centimeter.
PRP is said to have a positive therapeutic effect on male and female pattern hair loss as per research conducted on 20 participants without any side effects. PRP, as a hair loss treatment, has already attained a reputation among patients and physicians as an effective technique for regrowing hair.
What is High Concentrate PRP Injection Therapy with Laser?
High Concentrate PRP laser therapy is a noninvasive advanced technique for enhancing the efficacy and power of hair regeneration treatment. PRP when used with laser hair restoration works towards stimulating hair follicles for stronger, thicker, and healthier hair.
Stem cells can be stimulated with robust growth factors found in the patient’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP). These encourage localized growth of cells and develop new blood vessels for nourishing regenerated hair follicles.
