Receding hair, bald spots, and thinning hair are some of the most unpleasant signs of aging. There are many methods and treatments for hair restoration, but hair restoration with PRP offers a natural solution to thinning hair that is both effective and minimally invasive. Other non-invasive measures are also showing benefit, as well.
Aesthetic–Facial and Body Rejuvenation understands your frustration and is ready to assist you to restore your hair, and we often perform hair restoration with PRP(platelet-rich plasma). PRP is a naturally-occurring substance created from your own blood.
CANDIDATES FOR HAIR RESTORATION
PRP is extremely effective in restoring natural hair growth in men and women. As the PRP is extracted from your own blood, the treatment is all-natural and requires minimal, if any, recovery time. The treatment is non-surgical; it is suitable for almost any person looking to improve thinning hair, by triggering the body’s natural regenerative process.
Most people begin to experience hair loss in their late thirties and forties, but for some thinning or balding occurs in the twenties. Hair restoration with PRP is a safe and reliable method to restore healthy hair follicles for people of any age.
Hair restoration procedure with PRP
Your hair restoration procedure with PRP will begin by drawing a small sample of your blood, as would occur in a standard blood test. The sample is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from other blood products. PRP is a highly concentrated solution containing growth factors–the naturally occurring substances that stimulate cell growth, health, and proliferation.
The PRP will then be injected into your scalp to restore healthy hair growth. The PRP stimulates the stem cells in the inactive hair follicles to trigger new hair growth. Once the injections are completed, your scalp will be cleaned. After the procedure, you are free to resume your daily activities.
Recovery time after hair restoration with PRP
One of the most significant advantages of hair restoration with PRP is the fast treatment and lack of any needed recovery time. Some patients like to take the remainder of the day to rest, but it would simply be for your comfort and is not vital to the healing process.
There are no incisions to care for and anesthesia is not necessary, so you will not be left feeling foggy or disoriented. You will need to avoid extended periods of sun exposure, but generally, you can resume your daily routine immediately after treatment.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR THE PROCEDURE?
Though PRP has been proven effective on almost anyone over the age of eighteen, there are a few exceptions. Those who smoke or drink heavily may not be the ideal candidate. Additionally, certain rare medical conditions may exclude you from treatment. If you are interested in the procedure, schedule an initial consultation a tour Jackson TN clinic to find out what procedure or combination of hair restoration procedures will produce a result–for you.
IS THE USE OF PRP SAFE?
Yes, very much so. PRP is derived from your own blood cells, eliminating any chance that your body would reject the treatment or lead to an infection as your body recognizes its own cells. Aesthetic–Facial and Body Rejuvenation procedures are performed in a safe, sterile environment where we utilize state-of-the-art equipment to eliminate the risk of contamination. PRP is clinically proven to be safe and effective and has been used for decades in the medical field.
WHAT EXACTLY IS PRP?
By placing your blood sample in a centrifuge, the spinning action separates the platelet-rich plasma from other blood products. The growth factors themselves are made up of a few different types of growth-stimulating substances, including:
- Platelet-derived growth factor
- Fibroblast growth factor
- Vascular endothelial growth factor
- Transforming growth factor
- Epithelial growth factor
WILL I NEED ADDITIONAL TREATMENTS?
Some patients may return for subsequent treatments approximately on a yearly basis to maintain growth in the newly-stimulated hair follicles. Our experienced staff will create a customized treatment plan to address your individual condition.
CAN HAIR RESTORATION WITH PRP BE PAIRED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes. You may decide to pair your hair restoration procedure with other non-surgical treatments such as Minoxidil (hair growth medication). You may be advised to have a combination of hair restoration treatments to prolong the health and growth of thicker, more abundant hair.
ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL CARE INSTRUCTIONS AFTER MY PROCEDURE?
Immediately following your procedure, you may experience some tenderness and should avoid extended sun exposure. If you are going to be out-of-doors, wear sunscreen or a loose-fitting hat to keep your scalp protected from the sun’s rays. After the brief initial healing time, you can wash and care for your hair and scalp as usual.
If you are pairing your procedure with another treatment, apply those as directed by our hair restoration professionals so you achieve and maintain optimal results.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT AFTER HAIR RESTORATION WITH PRP?
Over the next few months following a PRP hair restoration procedure, you will see new hair growth in the treated area. As hair growth starts below the surface in the follicle, it may take several weeks for you to notice new hair growth, but it new hair growth and thicker existing hairs become visible over the following weeks and months. Results can vary, especially if you are combining your treatment with other topical creams or medications.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT WILL I NEED TIME OFF WORK TO RECOVER?
Most patients do not require time off work to recover from the PRP hair restoration procedure. The treatment is typically completed within one to two hours and patients return to work or other activities right away. Some patients may elect to take off the remainder of the day following treatment.
