What is PRP Hair Restoration?
No matter how old you are, hair loss is a difficult issue to deal with. One of the most common cosmetic concerns amongst both men and women, hair loss can strike at almost any age, and for a wide variety of reasons. While the vast majority of individuals won’t begin to lose their hair until their 40’s, 50’s or even their 60’s – some men and women are unfortunate enough to begin to experience lost or thinning hair as early as their late teens or 20’s. According to Dr. V and the team at Luxury Hair Suites, the experts in procedures like the PRP hair restoration treatment, its important to mitigate these issues and take action as soon as possible – as the earlier you begin to seek treatment, and the less far along your hair loss issues might be, the better your chances for hair regrowth will be. While there are tons of treatments out there, the vast majority have mixed results and don’t always offer the effectiveness they claim. According to Dr. V, one of the most effective cosmetic treatments is the PRP hair restoration treatment. PRP therapy in general is a common procedure, made popular by athletes looking to improve the health of bones, cartilage and connective tissue, skincare experts, looking to improve the regeneration of skin tissue, and even patients looking to heal faster from surgery. While PRP therapy has become more and more popular for all its uses of late, there are still a lot of patients who have no idea about PRP HAIR REGROWTH and how effective it can be. In this article, we will be exploring PRP hair restoration and how it can help patients to improve their hair.
What is PRP?
Before we delve into PRP hair regrowth, its important to understand PRP therapy in general. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma – a naturally created substance, that consists of two main elements – plasma, or the liquid component of the patient’s own blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays an important role in the healing throughout the body – helping cells and tissue to proliferate and heal faster and more effectively than they would on their own. Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma is simply blood that, after undergoing a special treatment, are separate into the part that holds the majority of the platelets – more so than they normally would. This is done by drawing the patient’s blood, and spinning it around in a centrifuge – which separates the blood from the plasma, containing a high concentration of platelets. When this substance is injected back into certain areas of the body, it can speed up recovery, and allow cells and tissue to connect and heal faster.
PRP therapy has been made popular by famous athletes like the late Kobe Bryant, who famously was able to recovery from knee and Achilles tendon issues late in his career using such treatments. In addition, the Kardashians and other influencers and celebrities have been known to use such treatments for skin rejuvenation. however, over the years doctors have found a number of other amazing uses for PRP therapy, such as PRP hair restoration treatment.
PRP for Hair Loss
When it comes to using PRP for hair loss, it has been met with quite a lot of success. While it isn’t some magic treatment, that will automatically grow someone a full head of hair – it certainly has been a lot more effective than most other methods. Because its a non-surgical treatment, it is recommended patients try this option before undergoing a full HAIR TRANSPLANT operation. In addition, because its noninvasive, patients can undergo a treatment without any downtime – meaning they really have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. The procedure works by injecting the PRP therapy solution back into the treatment area of the scalp. Generally the patients who have thinning hair in an area, will get the best results, as the solution can help to reinvigorate the damaged or dead hair follicles, helping them to begin to grow stronger and more robust than they have in years. And the fact that it uses the patients own blood means that there are few, if any side effects and no chance of being harmed from unwanted foreign chemicals and what not.
