Thinning hair is not easily treated. When follicles become weakened, they produce cells that contain less protein, and the strands that result are less able to maintain their structure. The hairs fall out more easily, further complicating the problem.
One of the latest techniques to combat thinning hair or hair loss is platelet-rich plasma therapy. Blood plasma with a high concentration of platelets is already being used to produce healthier skin cells. The same treatment can be used on the scalp as well. It doesn’t actually grow hair from bald spots, but it allows the follicles to produce healthier, thicker hair strands. We invite potential clients to contact us for more information about this effective treatment for hair loss or thinning hair.
About Platelet-Rich Plasma
Abbreviated as PRP, this process involves drawing a small amount of blood from the client and spinning it down in a centrifuge. The platelets and plasma are separated from the red cells. Made into a fibrin mix, the PRP is then injected into the skin on the scalp.
Blood platelets aid in clotting, but they also contain significant growth factors. This is why cuts and scrapes heal as quickly as they do. The PRP actually stimulates healthier growth of follicles, from which hair is produced.
Who is a Candidate?
Men and women with thinning hair due to weak follicles or who have pattern baldness are ideal candidates. Some people have receding hairlines caused by damaged skin. The pores are blocked, the follicles are damaged and the hairs begin to fall out more quickly. These hair strands are generally thinner than the hair growth on the top of the head. A series of PRP treatments can help to reverse this sign of aging.
How the Procedure is Performed
The blood is drawn and processed into a fibrin mix before it is injected into the area to be treated. We may recommend combining the injections with other products for optimal results. Following the treatment session, the client is not required to perform any sort of scalp care duties. Hair growth is eventually realized, and the strands continue to thicken as the follicles become stronger and able to produce healthier hair cells.
