Thinning hair and hair loss is something that many men and women have to face as they age. But it isn’t something that just needs to be dealt with; instead, you can take action and restore your hair with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Undergoing a hair restoration treatment with PRP can increase your hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle itself.

Ideal candidates for hair restoration with PRP are men and women who are experiencing the early stages of hair loss. Other candidates may be those with androgenic alopecia. It is recommended that you schedule a consultation with the Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine and Skin Spa to find out if hair restoration with PRP is the right treatment for your hair loss needs.
Hair restoration with PRP is a concentration of platelets in the blood, which are crucial to wound healing. PRP releases growth factors into the head to expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. This process is safe and quick and can extract a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells to create platelet-rich plasma. PRP hair restoration treatments are typically 45 minutes.
There is no risk of an allergic reaction to PRP, and the body should not reject it either, since it is the body’s own blood that is being injected back into the treatment area. The whole process is easy, convenient, and pain-free. Additionally, this procedure does not require any downtime.
Results of your hair restoration with PRP treatment begin to become noticeable after about four to six weeks. Immediately after your treatment, your hair will look healthier and shinier, but the growth will take a few months to become fully noticeable, due to the hair growth cycle.
