PRP FOR HAIR GROWTH
HOW DOES PRP STIMULATE HAIR GROWTH?
Our blood is made of two main components, red blood cells, and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors.
Growth factors, in a sense, play the role of messengers, signaling skin cells to function. In fact, they’ve been used in medicine to treat a range of health issues, including arthritis, signs of aging, etc. The good news for anyone with thinning hair is that growth factors can help stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth.
The use of PRP is a great treatment option for hair loss because it’s efficient at increasing hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle.
There is a careful process involved in using PRP for hair regrowth, beginning with a blood draw from the client’s arm. The tube of blood is put into a machine called a centrifuge, which spins the blood tube to separate out the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma, rich in platelets, is then injected directly into the scalp at the level of the hair follicles. The process is meticulous but typically, the entire procedure takes less than a half hour.
It might sound scary but for the most part, there’s no risk associated with PRP. Most clients get injections without any numbing, as there is minimal discomfort. We give you your own Juvly ice packs, and Tylenol after the procedure is also recommended. Bruising can occur but usually resolves within a week or two.
Minimal downtime, if any, is needed. A warm shower, as the hot temperature will enhance blood flow and circulation throughout the scalp. This means going a day or two without your typical hair maintenance (coloring, processing, blow-drying, etc.)
For best results, consistency is key. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months, depending on the individual client’s response and results. Anticipated results can first be seen within two to three months usually.
The first result that patients usually see is decreased hair shedding, followed by early regrowth and increased length of hair. Receiving treatments every three to six months on a long-term basis are optimal for continuing to stimulate the growth factors and stem cells that are associated with regrowth and stopping hair fallout!
