If you’re tired of thinning hair and progressive hair loss and are looking for new options, why not consider PRP might be able to help.
PRP therapy, short for platelet-rich plasma, which is the highest concentration of platelets, is injected into your scalp in order to promote hair growth.
You may have started balding early in life or you may find that thinning hair might run in your family. Getting your confidence back may take some time, but if you are not ready to give up on your hair regrowth hopes, why not explore PRP?
Should you elect to try PRP therapy for hair growth, you would first get blood drawn at a regular doctor’s appointment. The blood is then spun into highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma. What makes blood special in this process? It’s the mesenchymal stem cells and other nutrients that are known to possess growth factors.
Once your scalp has been numbed by anesthesia, the highly concentrated blood is injected into your scalp, very similar to how one is treated with stem cells therapy. After the procedure, your hair is washed and the patient is able to go on their way, free of further medical requirements. It’s a simple outpatient procedure that should take no more than an afternoon but could change the rest of your life.
While PRP therapy has been proven to be safe in extensive medical literature, it should be noted that the treatments are not yet approved by the FDA. And while many patients report they are seeing promising results after PRP therapy, this has not been unequivocally proven.
PRP therapy is still in the very early stages of research and medical professionals advise that there are other fully approved options put forth by the FDA such as Minoxidil – marketed by their brand name, Rogaine; as well as surgical procedures that can provide a luxurious head of hair.
