While hair loss is considered a very natural event that comes with age, the way it is treated isn’t always as natural. At Beverly Hills Center, Dr. Ben Talei proudly offers some of the most modern and natural treatment approaches to male and female hair loss. In fact, one of the most effective treatments involves using the patient’s own blood to regenerate hair growth. Here is a closer look at how Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy can be used alone to treat hair loos or to compliment a recent NeoGraft hair transplant.
Understanding PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a cutting-edge regenerative treatment that utilizes the body’s own healing abilities to stimulate hair growth. PRP contains a concentrated mixture of growth factors and platelets, which play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration. The therapy has gained immense popularity in recent years due to its efficacy and natural approach to hair loss treatment.
The PRP Hair Restoration Process
When visiting our clinic in Beverly Hills for PRP hair restoration, you can expect the following process:
- Consultation and Evaluation: The first step in the PRP hair restoration journey involves a comprehensive consultation with a skilled practitioner. During this consultation, the surgeon assesses the patient’s hair loss pattern, medical history, and overall health to determine the suitability of PRP therapy.
- Blood Draw and PRP Extraction: Once the patient is deemed a candidate for PRP therapy, a small amount of blood is drawn from their arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine, where it is spun at high speed to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components.
- PRP Application: The concentrated PRP is collected and carefully injected into the scalp in areas experiencing hair thinning or loss. This is often done using a fine needle, and local anesthesia may be administered to minimize discomfort.
The Role of PRP in Hair Loss Treatment
The platelet rich plasma from your own blood can be a preferred, safe and very powerful way to achieve a more confident head of hair.
- Hair Follicle Stimulation: PRP contains essential growth factors that promote hair follicle growth and prolong the active growth phase of hair. When injected into the scalp, PRP encourages hair follicles to re-enter the growth phase, leading to new hair growth and increased hair density.
- Improved Hair Health: The growth factors present in PRP help improve blood circulation and nutrient delivery to the hair follicles. This enhanced nourishment revitalizes existing hair and promotes overall hair health, resulting in thicker, stronger strands.
- Non-Surgical and Natural Solution: One of the most significant advantages of PRP therapy for hair loss is its non-surgical nature. As the treatment utilizes the patient’s blood, there is minimal risk of allergic reactions or adverse side effects. PRP offers a safe and natural alternative to surgical hair restoration procedures.
- Minimal Downtime and Recovery: Patients can resume their regular activities immediately after PRP therapy. While mild redness or swelling may occur at the injection sites, these typically subside within a day or two.
