Can I Restore Balding Hair?
Yes, you can restore balding hair, and the innovative PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is an excellent option. But what exactly is PRP, and how does it restore balding hair.
What is PRP therapy for hair loss?
PRP therapy for hair loss involves the injection of concentrated platelets into specific areas of the scalp, to help with hair regrowth. Platelets are small cells in the blood that are rich in growth factors.
PRP therapy has been used for many years in orthopedic medicine to assist with tissue repair and wound healing, and is now increasingly being used in aesthetic medicine because of its ability to rejuvenate hair and skin tissue.
How PRP restores balding hair
A sample of blood is taken from the arm of the patient. It is then put in a centrifuge that spins the blood rapidly, to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. The PRP is activated and then injected directly into the balding areas of the scalp.
The growth factors in the plasma repair and rejuvenate the hair follicles, causing new hair to grow.
Several clinical studies have been carried out using PRP for balding hair, and after treatment the participants experienced hair growth, as well as an increase in hair thickness.
How many PRP treatments do I need for balding hair?
A course of 4 PRP treatments is recommended.
