What Can PRP and Laser Hair Restoration Offer You?
So much of our sense of self and confidence comes from our hair, and when we see our hair thinning, we can often feel as if we are no longer the same person we once were. And while hair loss can be one of the most frustrating and worrisome cosmetic concerns that both men and women can experience, the good news is that there are cosmetic treatments that can help to slow hair loss or reverse it completely.
At Synergy Face + Body, we offer both PRP and MOXI™ laser treatments for hair restoration. Because of this, the question is not Should you undergo one of these treatments? Rather, the question is Which of these treatments should you have? To help you answer that question, we will look at both treatments, including the treatment methods and benefits, to help you decide which one is best for you.
What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Essentially, PRP is a specific portion of your blood that is separated from red blood cells and other adverse parts of your blood. PRP is effective for increasing and improving healing in the body, mainly because it helps to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is responsible for the overall health and quality of your skin.
For PRP hair restoration, blood is extracted from your own body and placed in a centrifuge machine, where the platelet-rich plasma is separated from the rest of your blood. The PRP is then collected. Some of it is applied to your scalp while the remaining PRP is injected directly into your scalp. The PRP helps to repair damaged hair follicles while strengthening healthy follicles. After your treatment, you can look forward to having thicker and healthier hair than you have in years.
What Is MOXI™ Laser Hair Restoration?
The MOXI™ hair restoration treatment utilizes laser energy to stimulate collagen within the skin. When applied to the scalp, hair follicles are stimulated and strengthened, which results in hair growth. In addition to the laser treatment, KeraFactor (a topical solution) is applied to the scalp to help replenish lost proteins in the skin and hair follicles.
For the MOXI™ treatment, laser energy is directed to the skin on your scalp. The laser light energy penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen and your hair follicles. Once the laser treatment portion is completed, KeraFactor will be applied to your scalp, which will penetrate deep into the hair ducts to help you grow the healthy hair that you have been missing.
Which Treatment Option Is Better for Me?
Both treatments (PRP and MOXI™ hair restoration) offer stunning results. In many ways, these treatments are very similar. They both take anywhere from 45 minutes to 60 minutes to complete with no downtime and limited side effects (dry, red skin that lasts up to two days). Additionally, both treatments offer long-lasting results, which means that you can enjoy your thicker head of hair for years to come.
While there is no “better” option, you may feel more comfortable with one over the other. While not painful, PRP hair restoration does require a blood draw and injections in the scalp, while MOXI™ laser hair restoration is not an invasive treatment at all. However, the truth is that your cosmetic specialist at Synergy Face + Body will determine which treatment option is best for you during your hair restoration consultation.
Get Ready for the Procedure
Before your surgery, you should take a bath or shower. With the exception of water, it is important that you do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your procedure. Additionally, you will want to make sure that you do not apply any lotions, cologne, or perfume before your procedure. Lastly, it is important that you do your best to relax your mind. While surgery is daunting for anyone, hernia repair surgery is a safe and trusted procedure that will ultimately help you feel better so that you can return to your normal, daily activities without any pain or discomfort.
If you are suffering from thinning hair or hair loss, then don’t delay. You can begin your journey down the path to hair restoration; however, if you wait, then you will only continue to feel self-conscious about the way your hair looks. Isn’t it time to ditch the hat or scarf and feel proud of your hair?
