What is a Regenerative Hair Restoration?
This procedure uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from the patient's own blood injected artfully to produce the most hair regrowth.
Steps of the Regenerative Hair Restoration Procedure:
• A blood sample is drawn from the arm, the same way it would be for a normal blood test.
• Next, the blood is centrifuged, and Platelet Rich Plasma is isolated. The healing and growth factors found in the patient's own blood are activated with a physiologic solution and injected back into the scalp in affected areas of hair loss.
• Through the use of topical and local anesthetics and a very small needle, the procedure is virtually painless.
Advantages of the Regenerative Hair Restoration
Studies reported that PRP treatments led to hair regrowth in those with androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata. Studies found that injections of PRP reduced hair loss and increased the diameter of hairs and the density of hair growth.
What is the recovery form the Regenerative Hair Restoration?
There is virtually no recovery from this procedure. We advise that the area not be washed and that no products be used for 6+ hours after treatment to allow the PRP to absorb. Avoid anti-inflammatory medications, if possible, for at least 1 week after treatment. These medications inhibit the inflammatory phase of healing that is a necessary part of PRP therapy. Some may have small bruises, minimal swelling, or redness at the injection sites. This resolves over the days following treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Just like any other hair regrowth program such as Rogaine, patients will need to have follow-up treatments every 4-6 months pending significance and cause of hair loss.
