Few things are as quick to diminish confidence in one’s appearance as thinning hair or hair loss. Past remedies were expensive or not very effective, but advancements in medical science have found a solution from a surprising source: your blood. At Balanced Aesthetics Medspa, we can help with PRP treatment for hair loss.
The PRP is extracted from your blood, so there’s very little chance of a reaction from the injections. Hair cannot be restored in areas with no follicles left for the stem cells to copy, so patients whose balding is complete will not see their hair restored. A consultation with Balanced Aesthetics experts is a great way to start to see if you’re an ideal candidate.
You’ll begin to notice improved texture to your hair, some thickening of existing shafts, and new hair growth around 2 weeks after treatment. It can, however, take 3-6 months to show measurable results. Most patients require a series of treatments for marked improvement to thinning or receding hair.
PRP injections cannot change the genetic predisposition for hair loss, so maintenance treatments are recommended after your series is complete.
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, a component of blood that can be extracted and used for many treatments, including hair loss prevention and regrowth. Think of your scalp like a fertile field. The better the soil, the more robust the plants are which grow from it. When your scalp is healthy, has good blood circulation, and the tissues are well-nourished, your hair has the best possible environment in which to thrive. PRP can bring back scalp and hair follicle health.
PRP contains growth factors, and when these are injected into your scalp, they recruit nearby stem cells. The stem cells “read” these growth factors and rush to heal the scalp as if it had been injured, increasing circulation, repairing damaged cells, and creating new cells and keratin, the basis of hair follicles. With this new tissue generation, your existing follicles become healthier, and the strands of hair thicken. Stem cells are also blanks that can copy the cellular structure of whatever the tissue most needs. They become keratin to create new follicles, leading to new hair growth in place of hairs already shed.
We conduct PRP for hair loss procedures in the comfort of the Balanced Aesthetics Medspa treatment rooms. Your treatment begins with a thorough cleansing of your thinning spots and the application of an anesthetic. Then, your blood is drawn and spun through a lab-grade centrifuge to separate the components. The PRP is extracted and prepared for injection into strategic locations around your scalp to maximize hair regrowth. The treatment itself does not take long, and you’re free to return to your regular routine.
Your scalp may be tender, bruised, sore, or itchy for 2-5 days after your PRP hair loss treatment, and you’ll need to take care with heat and sun exposure. Be sure to follow the aftercare instructions provided to minimize risk and maximize results.
