Hair Restoration with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Both men and women experience thinning hair—at any age, for various reasons. Whether it would be cosmetic or medical, addressing hair loss can be a challenge for many. The technology behind regenerating hair growth has been limited to invasive surgical options or over-the-counter products that often don’t deliver desired results. Thanks to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) technology, restoring hair growth can now be done naturally—by using your body’s own growth factors. Hair restoration with PRP can help you regain self-confidence and youthfulness.
At Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics in Puyallup, WA, we offer PRP therapy that is currently used in various medical procedures for expedited wound healing, tissue repair and reconstruction. This same technology can be used to naturally stimulate the growth of hair follicles, resulting in natural hair growth restoration.
How does PRP for hair restoration work?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Restoration is safe and effective. This FDA-approved treatment can improve hair regrowth and thinning as well as decrease hair loss. Our bodies contain the growth factors necessary to make hair regrow stronger and better. Therefore, PRP injections stimulate hair growth by the proteins and growth factors in the platelets that is drawn from your own body reducing the chances of immune system rejections. The proteins in the platelets will activate the inactivated hair follicles causing hair restoration in the treated areas.
At Concordia Star Medical Spa, our patients take advantage of PRP for Hair Restoration for the following reasons: *
- Increased blood supply to the hair follicles in the treated areas
- Decreased hair loss
- Increased hair thickness or volume
- Minimal to no downtime
- Minimal to no side effects
What are the differences between PRP hair restoration and hair transplantation?
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure. Surgical procedures have longer recovery period. However, with PRP for hair loss or thinning, you can resume normal activities after the treatment. During the hair transplanation procedure, you may experience more discomfort. On the other hand, PRP for Hair Restoration in Puyallup has minimal to no discomfort. * Additionally, surgical procedures are more expensive than non-surgical treatments. At our Puyallup med spa, we can help you decide which treatment plan works best for you.
What is the PRP procedure like?
Prior to your treatment, we will conduct a consultation to develop a treatment plan that works best for you. Our experts will assess your needs to deliver optimal results. When you come in for your treatment, a small amount of your blood will be drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. We then combine your own PRP with ACell technology to maximize its growth effects. ACell is an Extracellular Matrix (ECM) tissue-regenerating technology derived from animals and is used extensively in surgical procedures to enhance wound healing. As a “bio-scaffold”, combining ACell technology with PRP therapy produces new and accelerated hair growth to the areas it is applied to.
This treatment is typically administered by injecting the PRP + ACell mixture into the scalp which takes 1 to 2 hours with little to no downtime, depending on the patient and treated areas. The injection is performed solely by master physician injector Dr. Ladie Arana-Domondon.
How long does it take to see results from PRP for hair restoration?*
Depending on the patient and the treatment areas, we recommend our patients to receive PRP hair restoration retreatments within 4 to 12 months (depending on type of baldness) to achieve optimum results. However, your retreatment plan may be different from other patients. Therefore, our experts will guide you in developing a specific plan just for you.
What are the side effects of PRP for hair restoration?
The side effects of PRP hair restoration are minimal. You may notice some redness, mild headaches or pinpoint bleeding after the treatment. These side effects are generally resolved after a few hours to days following the treatment.
