If you have thinning hair and are sick and tired of either hiding it under a hat or wearing hair extensions, then it might be time to get to the literal root of the problem. Here at Skin & Laser Surgery Center, we use platelet-rich plasma to treat a variety of different cosmetic concerns including hair loss. To help you spend the rest of 2019 with a full head of hair, let’s take a closer look at what PRP can do for you.
How Does PRP Work for Hair Loss?
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP for hair loss is a three-step process in which we will draw your blood, process it, and then inject it directly into the scalp. Once the PRP has been injected, it works to increase the blood supply to the hair follicle which triggers natural hair growth and maintenance. Additionally, it can also help to increase the thickness of the hair shaft at the same time.
Why Is It Popular?
Other than PRP being an effective way to treat hair loss, it’s also popular because it’s seen as a more natural approach to hair loss. Rather than using chemicals or even medications, PRP just uses the proteins in your own blood which means that there basically can’t be anything more natural than that.
In addition to treating hair loss, we use PRP at our office to treat a variety of other concerns including:
- Cheek indentations
- Fine lines
- Eye Hollows
- Texture and tone
- Facial Scarring
- Acne scarring
