Hair loss is an extremely common problem, and almost every adult in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and elsewhere will experience this issue at some point over the years. If you have recently noticed that your hair is thinning out, then you might want to take a closer look at platelet-rich plasma or PRP hair restoration. This unique treatment stimulates the production of healthy new hair follicles, and it doesn’t require any incisions or transplants. It is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for hair loss, and it has helped countless patients rebuild their confidence.
A Look at PRP Hair Restoration Treatments
Originally, platelet-rich plasma was used to treat joint injuries. Doctors discovered that they could actually trigger the body’s healing response by injecting a patient’s own platelets back into their soft tissue. As this treatment continued to grow in popularity, teams of researchers began looking for other uses. Those researchers soon realized that they could inject PRP into a patient’s scalp to repair damaged hair follicles. The plasma is filled with growth factors that stimulate hair growth, and that can lead to thicker and healthier hair.
The Process of Creating Platelet-Rich Plasma
PRP hair restoration treatments are safe, effective, and relatively easy to carry out. The first step in this process is withdrawing a small sample of the patient’s blood. Once our team has that sample, we can place it in a medical device known as a centrifuge. That device is nothing more than a small piece of machinery that spins blood samples at very high speeds. By spinning the blood sample, we can extract the platelet-rich plasma from all of the other molecules. After we have that concentrated serum, our team will inject it into the treatment site.
