Experiencing hair loss at any age can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Hats and other forms of headwear can only go so far. To truly address the problem of hair loss, you might want to think about hair restoration with PRP. With this procedure, your body’s own blood is used to stimulate follicle growth, and it is one of the safest ways for men and women to achieve fuller hair.
What Is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an effective therapy that uses your own blood to heal and improve certain areas of the body, such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, and hair follicles. This procedure is also safe for you because the blood is originally from your own body, meaning that there is no risk of rejection.
How Does Hair Restoration With PRP Work?
Hair restoration with PRP works by collecting the blood from the patient and putting that blood into a centrifuge to separate the blood from the plasma. Once the plasma is separated, it is then applied to the skin and injected into the areas where the thinning has occurred. After several weeks, you will see a regeneration of your hair.
At Synergy Face + Body, we use the HairMetrix® Diagnostic tool to analyze the scalp and hair follicles in real-time. This tool generates a detailed plan for the most appropriate treatment for the patient. This process quickly and accurately gathers the information necessary to record the condition of the hair before treatment so that we can track the progress and show how much has changed during and after the treatment.
What Is Treatment and Recovery Like?
The whole PRP process takes about 45 minutes to one hour to complete. There is minimal downtime, and patients may experience some redness and swelling for a few days, which will then eventually fade over time. You are able to return to your normal activities after the procedure is complete.
When Can I See My Results?
After your treatment, you will see a gradual increase in hair growth that can be visually tracked with our HairMetrix® System. This tool takes a live look at the scalp to assess hair growth and track progress. Results typically become apparent within four to six weeks, but full, desirable results appear after about three months. The benefits from PRP hair restoration therapy are long lasting and natural.
