PRP Treatments for Hair Loss
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and is a substance derived from the blood that contains growth factors, proteins, and healing properties. At New Jersey Hair Restoration Center in Freehold, NJ, we offer PRP for hair loss that can naturally restore healthy hair. Our PRP treatments for hair loss are safe, effective, and customizable. They can meet the needs of men and women who want an effective hair restoration treatment that won’t negatively affect their overall health.
What Are PRP Treatments for Hair Loss?
PRP treatments for hair loss use platelet-rich plasma to promote hair restoration. These advanced, minimally invasive treatments use healing properties from each patient’s own blood to target hair loss, receding hair lines, scalp health issues, and other aesthetic concerns. Platelet-rich plasma has a profound healing effect, and when we derive it from the blood through a standard blood draw and then re-inject it into damaged tissues, we can restore natural hair growth.
During the PRP treatments for hair loss, we filter the platelets from the rest of the blood and use the regenerative cells, vital proteins, and healing components, re-administered topically or in an injectable form, into different areas of the scalp to promote growth and healing. We offer two primary hair loss treatment options with PRP: PRP injections and microneedling with a topical PRP placement to naturally stimulate hair follicle regrowth and healthy, vibrant hair.
What Are the Benefits of PRP for Hair Loss?
Patients who undergo a PRP for hair loss treatment plan can expect a comfortable and efficient treatment process. There’s no risk of an allergic or adverse reaction after these treatments since the primary ingredient comes from each patient’s blood, and you cannot have an allergic or adverse reaction to your blood. Treatments are completely customizable and can be tailored to each patient’s hair loss concerns.
Other treatment benefits include the following:
- Enhanced hair growth
- Increased hair density
- Reduction in Hair thinning
- Improved hair health
- Natural and safe treatment
- Minimal downtime
- Can be combined with other treatments
- Non-surgical option
How Does the Treatment Process Work?
Our PRP for hair loss treatments begin with a standard blood draw. We need a blood sample so we can then place that sample in a centrifuge. This specialized device spins the blood for several minutes and uses gravitational forces to isolate the platelets from the plasma sample. We then prepare the PRP into a topical or injectable form that we can use during microneedling or other hair restoration treatments to naturally promote hair growth.
After extracting the PRP from the patient’s blood, PRP injections are administered with a very small, thin needle. They are injected into a primary treatment area in the scalp where patients have experienced hair loss or thinning hair. The PRP in the injectables contains proteins that will stimulate natural hair growth by encouraging cellular regeneration and increasing blood supply to the hair follicles.
Microneedling With PRP
We also offer microneedling treatments specifically designed to treat the scalp. During treatments, we use an automated microneedling device fitted with tiny, hair-thin microneedles that create micro-wounds on the scalp’s surface. These force the body to respond with a healing reaction that increases blood flow and stimulates natural collagen and elastin production.
Then, we take advantage of the temporarily increased absorption rate by applying a topical PRP placement to the area. It will absorb into the micro-wounds and heal or awaken the hair follicles to promote growth. Microneedling with PRP can naturally promote hair growth without requiring that patients take medication or undergo a surgical procedure to see results. PRP can also enhance the treatment results by stimulating collagen and elastin production and forcing accelerated cellular regeneration, promoting the healthiest hair follicles in the treatment area.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
After you undergo one of our PRP treatments for hair restoration, you’ll need to follow some post-care instructions, but you can resume most of your normal daily activities immediately following treatment. All of our treatments are non-invasive, so you won’t have to worry about any stitches or scarring. However, we recommend that patients avoid strenuous activities for the first one to two days to ensure proper healing.
We will also schedule post-treatment visits so that we can track your progress. Results vary among patients based on the type of hair loss they want to treat and their treatment plans. For most patients, visible results take approximately six months, and multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal hair growth.
Who Is a Good Candidate for PRP Treatments?
The best candidates for PRP hair restoration treatments are men and women looking for a non-surgical treatment that can safely and effectively restore healthy hair. Our microneedling and injectable treatments that use PRP are ideal for those patients who are in the initial stages of hair loss. Because the hair follicles of these patients are not entirely inactive, we can use the platelets and growth factors in the PRP to promote healing and cellular repair and regeneration.
Our treatments are also an effective option for patients with dormant hair follicles, although these patients may need additional treatment sessions to adequately stimulate hair growth. The best candidates will have realistic expectations about the treatment process and the results. Patients should also be in good health, free of any medical issues that could interfere with the treatment.
Who Isn’t a Candidate?
Some patients may not be eligible for these PRP treatments, including those with low platelet counts, blood clotting conditions, unstable blood pressure, or other contraindications. An initial consultation will give us more details about your goals, your target treatment area, and your medical history so that we can confirm your treatment eligibility.
Restore Healthy Hair the Natural Way
If you want to restore healthy, vibrant hair through a non-surgical treatment option, we can give you more details about our PRP treatments and confirm your treatment eligibility.
