How Does Hair Restoration Therapy Work?
Millions of men and women suffer from thinning hair and hair loss. Until recently, there were few treatment options available, and the options that were available were often unsuccessful and painful. Now, leading-edge therapy utilizing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is successfully being used in hair restoration treatment. Learn more about the procedure below.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Thinning hair and hair loss is usually a matter of genetics, meaning if someone in your family has thinning hair or loss of hair, you might too. However, thinning hair and hair loss can result from a host of ailments and health conditions, including stress, poor diet, hormone deficiencies and even childbirth. Medical procedures used in the treatment of certain illnesses can also affect a person’s hair.
Restoring Hair Naturally With Platelet-Rich Plasma
The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a safe and proven method of hair restoration that avoids the pain and recovery time associated with surgery. The procedure involves taking of a small amount of blood from the patient’s scalp. Separated from the blood by centrifugal force, the plasma is then injected back into the scalp. This principle uses the body’s own growth hormones and proteins to naturally restore the person’s hair. Because PRP uses plasma from the patient’s own body, it eliminates the possibility of acquiring an infection from someone else.
