Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment For Hair Loss

Alopecia is a typical type of hair loss. Hair loss is an issue that affects both men and women. It could be caused by genetics, drug side effects, disease, stress, or even hair care products.

Fortunately, there are several different methods to help stop hair loss and stimulate the regrowth of new hair.

The most popular treatment for hair loss is Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy which has been shown in studies to have an 80% success rate!

We will explore the benefits of PRP therapy for people experiencing male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness.

Female Pattern Hair Loss

Female pattern baldness is classified into three types:

Type I, which begins around the hairline and gradually progresses toward your crown, involves a minor amount of thinning. It’s also known as frontal baldness.

Type II is when your part grows larger and thinner.

A third-degree hair loss occurs throughout most of your scalp with a see-through region.

Male Pattern Hair Loss

The primary type of male pattern baldness is known as “androgenic alopecia” or AGA. It is caused by too much of a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which attacks the hair follicles.

The condition can begin as early as puberty. Eventually, all areas of the scalp will be affected by it, but it typically starts in men with receding hairlines or thinning on top of their heads.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy (or PRP rejuvenation) is our top non-surgical alternative for treating hair loss problems. The skin and hair on the scalp are rejuvenated with PRP utilizing growth factors taken straight from your blood.

What Are Plasma And Platelets?

Plasma is a light-yellow liquid separated from the rest of the blood, mainly consisting of water and proteins. Platelets are small cell fragments in your bloodstream made in our bone marrow, which makes the clotting process possible to stop bleeding when you have an injury or cut.

What Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss Treatment?

Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is an advanced cutting-edge technology that uses the patient’s blood to span in a centrifuge, leaving plasma rich in platelets. The concentrated platelets contain growth factors that are vital to initiate tissue repair and cell regeneration.

There are many types of growth factors present in platelets, but the four key ones used in hair restoration:

How PRP Works for Hair Restoration?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a natural, non-surgical treatment option for patients with hair loss.

The idea behind this medical treatment is that PRP contains activated platelets full of growth factors and cytokines, which stimulate the body’s stem cells to promote healing and tissue regeneration.

Platelets contain multiple different types of proteins that are involved in the process of hair growth.

When PRP is injected into the scalp, it promotes blood flow to the follicles, activates stem cells in the dermal papilla, and stimulates other cells within the hair follicle structures that encourage faster and more healthy hair growth.

PRP injections can help promote thicker, fuller-looking hair and encourage new hair to grow where there was little hope before!

Here is a video showing the treatment process

What Are The Benefits of PRP?

The advantages of PRP for hair loss are numerous.

Procedure For Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP) At Colaz

Blood Collection:

We exclusively use the highest-quality Cellenis PRP centrifuge, which is designed to give the purest platelet-rich plasma achievable. Because not all machines on the market are capable of doing so, be cautious about where you get your therapy.

The procedure for blood collection begins with obtaining blood in an anti-coagulated tube, which contains separation gel. The red blood cells and plasma are separated after being centrifuged for 10 minutes in a test tube.

When the PRP is prepared, it is drawn up into a needle used to administer the treatment.

Delivery by Needle Injection:

Delivery by needle injection is one of the oldest methods to deliver PRP directly into the skin. Your clinician will work on the area by injecting small amounts of plasma into the treatment area. This will release all the growth factors and stem cells to help to restore, repair and rejuvenate the hair

Delivery by Vital Injector 2

Non-invasive, painless treatments of PRP can also be administered by our unique potent vital injector 2 gun, the most advanced technology for rejuvenating and regenerating skin and hair. It’s the only technique that works with a vacuum and multi-needle therapy to ensure precise product placement in small doses.

The added advantage of utilizing the essential injector will result in a double treatment of micro-needling and PRP into the hair follicles at greater depths than conventional needle injections. This outstanding combination will be more efficient since it will allow for maximum absorption into deeper layers; overall, more growth factors and stem cells will be delivered as you work closely over the area.

The M8 gun is also used by our physician, who utilizes a single needle system of administration. As a result, all of our clients have the option to choose whatever method they prefer.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

You’ll need three to four treatments spread out every four to six weeks. We recommend a booster treatment every three to six months to maintain the outcomes. Although each patient’s response is unique, improvement in hair growth should be measurable within 90 days, with continued improvement for at least six months. It is recommended that you attend all appointments.

You can combine the treatment with Viviscal professional hair growth supplement that supports health growth from within for optimal results. More information is available at your consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is PRP Safe?

PRP is relatively safe for patients because it uses your blood plasma. There are some risks of bruising, redness, swelling and lumps and bumps visible after treatment, but this usually subsides.

Allergic reaction: This is very rare, but it can occur where clients tend to have an allergic reaction to their platelet-rich plasma. If you have any allergies, you must notify the clinician upon your consultation

It would help if you kept the area clean as there can be a risk of infection with any procedure that causes injury to the skin.

Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Work For Hair Rejuvenation?

Yes! Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, which is based on the principle that platelets promote growth and healing, is the most common treatment for hair loss. It has an 80% success rate, according to studies!

How Long Does A Session Last With Vital Injector?
