Some men and women experience hair thinning and hair loss as they age. Others may notice it after pregnancy, hormonal changes, or even chemotherapy treatments. Whatever the case may be, it is happening, and it can sometimes cause feelings of frustration and self-consciousness. With platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments for hair restoration, patients can grow new roots! With new roots comes new self-confidence, so let Synergy Face + Body help you on your hair regrowth journey to add thickness and health to your locks.
What Is PRP & How Does It Work?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair restoration is a non-surgical therapeutic option for both men and women who need help with hair growth. It is a natural alternative that is used to treat hair loss and/or thinning. The primary purpose of PRP is to stimulate inactive or dormant hair follicles into an active growth phase so that they can produce hair again.
During your PRP treatment, the professionals at Synergy Face + Body will draw a sample of your own blood (about the same amount that is taken at a normal blood test), and it will be processed so that only the PRP growth factors remain. The blood, which is rich in proteins and contains key growth factors, is then injected into the scalp to stimulate natural hair growth in the desired treatment area.
How Do I Know if PRP Is Right for Me?
You may be wondering if PRP is a procedure that you can take part in. Ask yourself these questions below. If the answer is yes, then you may be a candidate for PRP therapy for hair restoration.
Do you have thinning hair and less volume?
Have you noticed more hair shedding?
Is your part widening?
Is your hairline receding?
Is there a family history of male pattern baldness?
Did stress, medication, or a vitamin deficiency lead to sudden hair loss?
The most important thing to do next is to schedule a consultation at Synergy Face + Body so that you can discuss your concerns and goals to obtain a healthy, full head of hair. There, you will be examined and given the best treatment plan based on your desires.
What Are the Benefits of PRP?
There are a couple key benefits when undergoing PRP therapy. It is a natural procedure that uses your own blood. This means that there is no risk of rejection or irritation since it is your own blood going back into your body. Another benefit is that the results are gradual, so no one will see a drastic change in one day. PRP results continue over a few months as the hair grows thicker and fuller over time. At Synergy Face + Body, we use the Hair Metrix System to visually track your hair growth and results, so you can see the progression of growing your luscious locks!
