The Magic of PRP Hair Restoration
Okay. Maybe PRP hair restoration therapy isn’t exactly magic. But it’s pretty cool.
Especially if you’re struggling with androgenic alopecia and looking for an effective way to restore hair growth.
Plus, the whole procedure usually takes less than 30 minute and downtime is minimal. And that’s its own form of magic.
So What Exactly Is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. To get an understanding of how PRP works, you must first know the role that platelets play in contributing to healing.
It works like this.
Your blood is comprised of red blood cells, as well as plasma which contains white blood cells and platelets. When you get a cut or other wound, it’s the platelets that rush to the scene. They’re responsible for stopping the bleeding and further promote healing by encouraging collagen growth.
When researchers made the discovery that platelets were natural healers, it was quite a boon. They theorized that extracting concentrated platelets from the blood and then injecting them into damaged areas of the body might just accelerate healing. Their theory ended up being spot on.
As a result, orthopedic doctors quickly began working with athletes using PRP to treat injuries to their tendons, muscles, and ligaments. And they’ve been using PRP therapies for quite some time now.
So it makes perfect sense that plastic surgeons got on board with this new therapy and began applying it to cosmetic procedures and hair restoration.
How PRP Hair Restoration Works
It’s believed that PRP injections not only trigger natural hair growth, but they maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft.
The actual process of PRP hair restoration is exacting and meticulous and it’s performed in three steps.
First, your blood is drawn. This is simply a standard blood draw from your arm.
Next, the tube of blood is placed into a centrifuge to isolate the plasma from the red blood cells.
Finally, the plasma is carefully injected directly into your scalp at the level of the hair follicles. The injections are made approximately every half inch over the area where the hair is thinning.
As we mentioned above, the entire procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes and there is minimal downtime. A warm shower afterward is recommended in order to enhance blood flow and circulation throughout the scalp.
It’s as easy as that.
