Both men and women suffer from hair loss. There is an estimated 50 million men and 30 million women that suffer from hair loss in America alone, and many starting in their thirties. Hair loss can have a major effect on a person’s life as it affects their confidence and even their happiness. For those looking for a solution, Skin & Body Refinery has an answer. We would like to share with you a little about hair rejuvenation and PRP therapy and how it is helping many reclaim their hair, confidence and happiness.
Hair Rejuvenation with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Hair rejuvenation with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is essential in helping to regrow hair and without side effects! How it works: A qualified physician will first draw the customer’s or patient’s blood. The blood is spun to separate the platelets and plasma in the blood. Platelets rich in plasma is used in many ways from repairing blood vessels, repairing damaged skin, and even in reversing aging. The PRP is injected into the blood vessels to promote healing around wounds and other damaged areas of the body. Later if was discovered that PRP in high concentrations has been able to promote hair growth and restart hair grow cycles.
How Does PRP for Hair Loss Work?
The PRP is injected into the scalp where hair loss is occurring or has occurred. The doctor will do a series of injections once a month, or every three months, over the course of the year. Situations vary depending on how much hair loss is present and how quickly your scalp reacts to the PRP injections. Genetics play another role in PRP therapy as well as hormones which make every person different and requires their own unique treatment.
Candidates for PRP Hair Treatment
PRP therapy isn’t always for everybody, so depending on the patient, therapy will vary. For example, those with thyroid disease or lupus often don’t make good candidates. This is because those conditions cause hair loss and hair loss will continue even after PRP therapy was successful. Additionally, if you are on blood thinners, the platelets won’t work or will not be rich enough to be effective.
How to Get Best Results from PRP Hair Treatments
It is harder to wake up dormant hair follicles. Therefore, it is better to begin PRP therapy when hair loss first begins. After five years of hair loss, it become more and more difficult and makes PRP therapy less effective. If you notice you have begun losing hair, and you seek therapy before that five year mark, you will have better success with PRP therapy. Before beginning PRP therapy, first schedule an appointment with a medical spa that provides PRP therapy. They will make an assessment and see if you will make a good candidate for PRP therapy. Next they will draw a small sample of your blood to be processed. You provide your own platelets-rich plasma and each injection is created from your own blood. Often they will schedule each therapy session and monitor how your hair is responding to the therapy.
