Hair loss happens to most people, especially when the unfortunate effects of aging start to show its hand. Luckily, there are ways we can conquer balding and hair loss without surgery, and that’s where platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy comes in. Here’s everything you need to know.
How Does It Work?
Platelets are well known to help regenerate your tissue and help wounds. They contain tiny structures inside them (glycogen, lysosomes, and alpha granules) that promote clotting and cell growth. We use platelets in our hair restoration treatment because it contains a high concentration of the healing components we’ve come to expect from platelets.
Our PRP therapy works by injecting platelets that aid in the following:
- Reawakening stem cells in your inactive hair follicles
- Increasing the rate of cell regeneration and healing
- Promoting new blood vessel development around your hair follicles
Does PRP Therapy Work?
It wouldn’t be much useful telling you all this if it didn’t work! Let’s explain a little more about the science behind it all.
PRP therapy has been tried and tested for more than 20 years, where injections effectively heal wounds and skin conditions. Hair restoration came slightly after that, but it’s been found to have positive effects on the growth and repair of hair above all else.
It’s especially effective for anyone with thinning due to androgenetic alopecia, which is a common form of hair loss caused by shrinking hair follicles.
Who Is It For?
PRP treatment works best for people with any of the following:
- Androgenetic alopecia-related hair loss
- Started losing your hair recently
It gets more challenging for PRP therapy to succeed on hair follicles that have been dormant for more than five years. That’s why we encourage you to look into PRP therapy straight away if you’re in the Tarzana, California area, to make sure you can get on top of it while there’s still time!
Why Should I Choose PRP Therapy?
If you’re still on the fence, hopefully, we can convince you with some of these points:
- Long-lasting results
- Minimal to no side effects
- Natural restoration process
After just six treatment sessions, you’ll notice the amazing effects that PRP therapy has on your newfound hair. It’ll be well worth visiting a therapist to find out more about it because you really can’t go wrong with PRP hair restoration!
How Is PRP Treatment Performed?
Before anything starts, a qualified specialist will have a quick consultation with you to find out whether you’re a suitable candidate. Once that’s decided, and the procedure is talked through with you, it’s time to draw some blood. Your blood will then be spun on a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the plasma.
The PRP solution then comes from the platelets combining with a smaller amount of plasma and injecting it into the dormant follicles on your head. After that, it shouldn’t take many more treatments before you really start to notice the positives coming out of it.
So, if you’re in the Tarzana, California area and you’re looking to get a little bit of life back in your hair, you know where to come! You can’t go wrong with hair restoration therapy, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
