PRP Hair Restoration
Anyone at any age can experience hair loss. It can be caused by stress, heredity, an underlying medical condition, a medication that you are taking, and more! Luckily, most of these hair loss causes can be treated. At Covet MedSpa, we are proud to offer a practical solution for men and women experiencing hair loss. If you suffer from thinning hair, PRP may be the right solution for you.
The PRP used for hair restoration is derived from the patient’s blood, which is obtained from the patient and spun in a centrifuge to separate solid and liquid components. Then platelet activators are added. The separated “solid” part of the patient’s blood is the PRP. Then platelet activators are added to create platelet rich plasma. On the surface of the platelets, you can find over 1,000 growth factors or proteins which are capable of regenerating human cells. These growth factors provide nutrition and new blood supply to the hair follicle to assist in increasing hair size and regenerating your hair.
The PRP from the patient is placed into a syringe and injected into the area of hair loss, generally the scalp. The injection process can be completed in mere minutes. This process stimulates growth factors in your blood cells for natural hair growth. The patient can return to regular activities right after treatment. This is a simple and quick procedure that doesn’t require sedation or medication. PRP contains many factors that stimulate the hair follicles to grow, such as thrombin, calcium chloride and in some cases, collagen. During this process, your hair becomes thicker and fuller.
Results will vary with each patient. PRP is a revolutionary therapy for hair follicle growth. After treatment, Covet MedSpa provides a three month kit of Ducray Hair Restoration Products including supplements, shampoo, and daily scalp lotion to augment PRP therapy, which strengthens hair and stimulates the growth phase of the hair follicle. It takes approximately 6-12 months for visible results. Additional PRP treatments can be scheduled to maximize results and continue the process.
This therapy offers hair growth opportunities for patients who are not candidates for surgery or patients seeking a more effective non-surgical approach to treatment. In any case of hair loss, PRP is a viable option for patients, resulting in thicker, natural hair.
