Why Consider Getting Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration?
How many hair-restoration products have you tried without getting any results? If your confidence in finding a solution that works has waned, you should give platelet rich plasma hair restoration a try.
What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
Before delving into the benefits of platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, let’s talk about what PRP is. PRP consists of plasma (blood’s liquid portion) and platelets (the blood cell that aids the body’s healing process).
Platelets have clotting abilities and growth factors that can encourage tissue regeneration and cell reproduction, something hair-loss patients need to regrow their hair. PRP is injected into the target areas of your scalp in multiple sessions to get your desired results. They can be administered on their own or used with other procedures to achieve your hair-growth goals.
Now that you have an understanding of what platelet rich plasma is and how it can help with hair restoration, let’s talk about its numerous benefits.
Platelet rich plasma comes from a sample of your blood, making the injections natural and safe for you. This greatly reduces the risk of triggering an allergic reaction or being rejected by the body. The procedure also poses no risk of contamination, because the only entry point is the injection or skin treatment used to administer the PRP.
A PRP hair-restoration procedure only involves injections or skin treatments. It is not surgical, requires no incisions, and can be safely conducted in the doctor’s office. As a result, you can quickly recover from the procedure and resume your daily activities.
Because PRP hair restoration is non-surgical and requires no incisions, there is no possibility of scarring. This ensures that results look very natural and helps patients feel more comfortable with shorter hairstyles.
PRP hair restoration with a skin treatment or injections is not typically painful. The discomfort varies depending on the target areas and your pain tolerance. If you tell the doctor you have a low pain tolerance level, you may be given topical or local anesthesia to manage the discomfort.
Some patients report minimal pain after the procedure, but it will disappear after a few days. If you still feel discomfort, you can reduce it using pain relievers, cool air, or ice packs. You should also stop regular hair-care activities, such as coloring, blow-drying, or processing, while recovering after the treatment.
PRP can be administered within an hour, so you do not need to stay at the clinic for a full day. You can choose a convenient time to come in and get your treatment, then return to work after the procedure. No downtime is necessary.
According to a study, PRP can treat female-pattern hair loss and androgenetic alopecia. It is also considered an effective treatment for alopecia areata and is showing potential as a solution for a few types of cicatricial alopecia.
You may notice results several weeks after getting scalp injections. However, as per the doctor’s recommendation, these results are not permanent, so you will need additional injections to maintain your hair regrowth.
