PRP for Women's Hair Loss
Thinning hair is something that no woman wants to experience. It can affect self-esteem and leave some feeling hopeless as they watch more and more hair fill the shower drain every day. Luckily, there is a cutting-edge treatment option that is easy to perform and affordable. This new treatment is called PRP, or platelet-rich plasma. Like some popular facials, this treatment uses your own blood cells to revitalize and regrow thinning hair.
How Does PRP Help Hair Loss?
Our blood is composed of two main parts; red cells and plasma. Plasma contains platelets and white cells. Both components are essential for hair growth. A lack of plasma can lead to increased aging effects, like arthritis and thinning hair. Plasma has been used medically to ease arthritis and other aging effects, and is now being used to thicken hair. With the use of plasma, hair follicles become stimulated and begin to function more like they did when you were younger. This results in seemingly sudden hair growth and follicle revitalization. Not only can PRP thicken existing hair, it can also hasten the growing process.
The Platelet-Rich Hair Restoration Process
During this treatment, blood is taken from the arm of the patient and put into a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the plasma from the rest of the blood, providing a concentrated dose that is then injected into the scalp. The plasma, rich in platelets, will flood the affected area and promote healthy, natural hair growth. The entire treatment process can be done in less than an hour and only one treatment is necessary to begin seeing results. This can be done in one afternoon. You can return to work the next day with little to no side effects.
If you suffer from hair loss and are in search for a cure, give the platelet-rich plasma treatment a try. The earlier the better, as this treatment works best for those still in the early stages of hair loss. Hair restoration has never been easier. All it takes is a single afternoon off from work, and you can begin experiencing more confidence and a fuller head of hair.
