PRP Hair Regrowth
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair growth
One approach is to use the platelets to halt and reverse the thinning of the hair follicles, which is causing the hair loss. The other approach is to use the therapy in conjunction with hair transplants. Since the plasma helps to stimulate growth and healing, it can be used to help with the recovery following a hair transplant.
The benefits offered by the treatment
The second benefit is the effectiveness of the treatment. When the treatment is used to stimulate the restoration of hair follicles, studies have shown it to be very effective. Like with any other treatment, please note that the procedure works better for certain conditions than for others. The procedure has been especially effective in the cases of hereditary alopecia, which causes the hair follicles to thin until hair is no longer able to grow. Typically, patients see results within 3 to 6 months following treatment. The best results are also seen in those who started experiencing hair loss recently, as the plasma treats the hair follicles that are still present.
The results have also been strong in patients who experienced hair loss due to alopecia areata (spot baldness) or similar diseases, which is when the immune system attacks the hair follicles. In patients that have experienced hair loss as a result of chemotherapy treatments or radiation, the treatment has not shown great improvements.
Another approach is to do it on patients who have hair transplanted. When used in conjunction with a hair transplant, it has also been shown to improve success rates by stimulating the transplanted hair follicles to grow and develop as expected. The plasma has also helped with the healing of the tissue damaged in the treatment.
Another important consideration of many patients is cost. Fortunately, the treatment has proven to be very affordable and cost effective, especially when compared to other surgical treatment options. Fortunately, the platelet rich plasma therapy is proving to be an effective, safe, non-surgical alternative for many experiencing hair loss.
How it Works?
Micro-Needling is a technique that utilizes a device with fine micro-needles to remold the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels through the skin, to activate the body’s healing cascade which in turn increases the formation of new tissue. This treatment is also known as a non-ablative skin treatment. Through this treatment, the deeper parts of the skin are treated without removing the top layer of the skin. This treatment is designed to treat various skin conditions such as wrinkles, fine lines, light scarring from acne, and to improve skin color.
In principle, the micro-needling is a similar process to any other non-surgical skin-tightening procedure in that it aims a controlled Non-Thermal injury underneath the skin. Therefore inducing the body to respond through the formation of new layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply in the treated area. Whenever we can generate openings in the skin we have an opportunity for topical to penetrate more readily through the channels created.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentration of platelets which circulate through the blood. Produced from an individual’s own blood, these concentration of cells are critical for blood clotting. The liquid plasma and platelets of the blood are required for cell recruitment and essential for cell multiplication and cell specialization that is required to promote the conditions for healing. Plasma MicroNeedling provides patients with the best enriched plasma.
