The insecurity that comes with thinning or receding hair can really upset the balance of our confidence and emotional well-being. Men and women alike experience the sting of hair loss. Now, there are exciting medical possibilities to treating hair loss, and Balanced Aesthetics Medspa can help.
PRP for hair loss requires that the treatment area have some follicles present to work with. The sooner clients start the treatment after noticing diminished hair thickness, the more successful the treatment can be. Get started today with a consultation at Balanced Aesthetics Medspa.
Your hair’s texture and thickness will improve in the first 2-3 weeks following your initial treatment. Most patients require a series of treatments to reach their highest percentage of hair regrowth. With each treatment, the strength of your hair shafts improves, the follicle is healthier, and the tissue in which it grows is more nourishing and supportive.
This leads to improved hair thickness, strength, quantity, and quality, which shows measurable results between 3-6 months from the start of treatment. PRP cannot change your genetic predisposition to lose hair, nor can it correct underlying conditions that contribute to hair loss. It can, however, give your hair a growing chance in fertile, supple scalp tissue with the best possible follicles.
The most common cause of thinning or receding hair, also called alopecia, is heredity. Other causes include hormonal changes, medical conditions or their treatments, or the aging process. So how can it be treated?
There have long been treatments that promise to stop hair loss in its tracks, and there are some effective medications. Patients have also endured the painful process of hair transplant surgery to transfer healthy hair follicles to the balding areas of their scalp.
More recent breakthroughs have been made from a surprising source—your own blood. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a component of your blood that can be extracted and then injected into your scalp to restore the health of your hair’s landscape. PRP rejuvenates weakened hair follicles, promotes the growth of new follicles, and improves the condition of the scalp for better hair quality.
PRP has been used to treat injuries, joint problems, and even autoimmune disorders to alleviate pain and speed recovery. The magic is in the growth factors in PRP. These factors attract stem cells to the treatment area—in this case, your scalp—to initiate healing, improve circulation and nourishment for the cells, and copy cells where they need to be replenished. Stem cells can become keratin, the substance that makes up hair.
Your treatment in the Balanced Aesthetics procedure rooms is as comfortable as we can make it. First, your blood is drawn and spun in a lab-grade centrifuge to separate the PRP. We can also numb the treatment area with anesthetic cream during this time. When you’re ready, we’ll inject the PRP strategically into your scalp where it can be most beneficial. Treatment is quick, and you should be able to resume your day after 1-2 hours. There’s little risk of adverse reaction because the PRP is native to your body. You may experience some pain, bruising, or itchiness in your scalp for 2-5 days after treatment. Follow all aftercare instructions for the greatest chance of success with PRP injections.
