What Exactly Is PRP for Hair Loss?
Searching for an excellent option for hair restoration in Vancouver? Hush Beauty Anti-Aging and Skin Care Centre is proud to offer PRP hair treatments to Vancouver patients!
Are you dealing with hair loss? You’re not alone. Many people of all ages experience hair loss due to genetics, hormones, or health issues. If you’re looking for a solution, you may have encountered the phrase “PRP for hair loss.” What is it?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and is a non-surgical, natural treatment that has recently gained popularity. It’s a quick, safe, and effective option for those looking to regrow their hair without surgery or medication.
This process is natural as it requires a small amount of blood to be drawn and spun down to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells and uses the plasma to stimulate the growth of new hair follicles.
How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?
PRP injections involve extracting a small amount of your blood, usually from the arm, and then running it through a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelets and plasma. The concentrated platelets and plasma are injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth.
These platelets contain growth factors responsible for stimulating the cells in the scalp to divide and multiply, leading to new hair growth. The plasma is also rich in proteins that help nourish the scalp and promote healthy hair growth.
In addition to promoting new hair growth, PRP hair restoration can also help slow down or stop hair loss. The growth factors in the platelets help protect the existing hair follicles from damage and stimulate them to produce more healthy hair. The treatment usually spans several sessions.
It’s essential to point out that results from your series of treatments will not be visible immediately because it takes time for the body to absorb and use the platelets naturally. It also means you must be patient with the process, as hair growth doesn’t happen overnight.
Are There Any Risks Associated with PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration is a relatively new and innovative procedure that has helped many people combat their hair loss in recent years. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, it is essential to note some associated risks. It is important to discuss any potential risks with your doctor before undergoing the procedure.
Some of the most common side effects include scalp irritation and redness, which should clear up within a few days. While rare, there is also a chance for more severe side effects if the procedure isn’t performed by a trained professional and aftercare instructions are not followed. These can include:
- Permanent hair loss
- Scarring of the scalp tissue
- Swelling of the scalp
Dr. Rose Wong and her team at Hush Beauty Anti-Aging and Skin Care Centre in Vancouver, BC, can help you understand the risks associated with PRP hair restoration and determine whether or not it is right for you. Should it be determined that PRP hair restoration is a good fit, then you can rest assured that you are in the best hands possible.
Does PRP Work for Both Men and Women?
Absolutely! Since the procedure requires the use of the patient’s own blood, it works for both men and women. It’s also worth noting that PRP hair loss treatment has a much smaller chance of complications or allergic reactions because it uses the patient’s blood.
Common Causes of Hair Loss
Hair loss and thinning hair are prevalent issues among both men and women. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Certain medications
- Preexisting medical conditions
One of the most common causes of hair loss among men and women is male/female pattern baldness. A combination of genetics and hormone imbalances can cause this condition.
Other causes of hair loss include alopecia areata, telogen effluvium, anagen effluvium, and trichotillomania.
Are You a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
PRP hair loss treatments can be an effective way to address hair loss and thinning hair. However, not everyone is a good candidate for this type of treatment.
Good health is essential for PRP candidates, and any pre-existing medical conditions must be considered before deciding if this treatment is right for you. Patients with skin infections must address these issues before considering PRP injections.
People experiencing hair loss due to other factors, such as medications, stress, or alopecia areata, may not find the same success with PRP. Before pursuing this kind of treatment, it’s essential to consult with a medical professional to determine if it’s the right course of action for you.
What Can You Expect During Your PRP Hair Treatment?
Before the treatment, you will likely have a consultation with your doctor. During this consultation, your doctor will evaluate your scalp and discuss your medical history and goals for the treatment. They will also explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have.
On the day of the procedure, you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the treated area. Your doctor will then draw a small amount of blood from your arm and place it in a centrifuge. This will separate the platelets from the rest of the blood, creating a concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The PRP is then injected into areas where hair growth is desired.
After the treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, or tenderness in the treated area. These side effects should subside within a few days and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications or cold compresses. You may also notice some shedding of existing hair in the weeks following treatment; this is normal and indicates that new hair growth is beginning.
PRP Hair Restoration Recovery Timeline
One of the most appealing parts of PRP hair restoration is no downtime after treatment. This means you can return to your daily activities immediately.
A typical “recovery” timeline looks something like this:
- Return to normal activities the same day
- You can wash your hair after 23 hours
- Soreness and bruising may be present for 1-3 days
How Successful Is PRP Hair Restoration?
While PRP hair loss treatment may not be the most effective hair loss treatment for everyone, it can be highly successful in many cases. In one review of the effectiveness of PRP for hair loss, the authors reported that 58% of patients claimed to be satisfied after their PRP treatment, with roughly 65% stating that they saw a “marked” or “exceptional” improvement in their hair loss.
This is excellent news for people suffering from hair loss or thinning hair who are interested in PRP hair loss treatment in Vancouver.
How Long Does It Take To Regrow Hair with PRP Injections?
Generally speaking, it can take between three to six months for the hair to regrow after PRP injections. However, it may take longer to see results if you’re dealing with more advanced hair loss. This will depend entirely on the person and their treatment plan.
How Long Do The Effects of a PRP Hair Restoration Last?
The effects of a PRP hair restoration can last anywhere from one to two years. However, the effects may not be as pronounced in some individuals as they are in others. Additionally, the results may diminish over time and must be maintained with regular treatments.
Can PRP Thicken Existing Hair?
Yes, since PRP injections can help to stimulate the hair follicles, they can help to improve the health and density of your existing hair while also helping to regrow hair in areas that are thinning or balding.
