Though hair loss can take its toll on some people as they age, PRP Therapy provides a viable long-term solution for hair restoration and natural regrowth. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a new and revolutionary way to treat a variety of conditions, including thinning hair and patterned baldness. This treatment has numerous benefits, and three of the most important are listed below.
#1 PRP is Safe and Natural
The blood used in this treatment is extracted from your own body; therefore, when the platelets are injected into the scalp, your body won’t reject them, nor should you experience any adverse side-effects from the treatment. When blood plasma cells are well-separated through a centrifuge machine, the platelet serum is chocked full of rich growth stimulants that naturally and safely regenerate hair growth in the scalp where needed.
If the procedure sounds painful, it really isn’t. Most patients only report slight discomfort and mild tenderness around the injection site areas for a day or two.
#2 It Has an Extremely High Success Rate
Since blood platelets are naturally capable of reversing or stopping the hair follicles from thinning, they are 100% effective at re-growing hair. And like most patients, you see results within six to twelve months of treatment. However, individual results will vary depending on the type of hair loss you have, as well as the rate at which your hair grows back. PRP provides gradual and subtle regrowth hair restoration, and you can adjust to the results in a natural, understated manner.
#3 PRP is Affordable
Transplants can be extremely expensive, and topical solutions may not work for everyone. However, PRP is surprisingly cost-efficient, and some patients choose to have it along with hair transplants to increase success rates. Houston’s Dr. Bradford Patt is board certified and experienced in performing this procedure; and because it can be done in-office, it’s quite affordable and there is no downtime.
PRP is not a one-time treatment, most patients need 3 initial treatments to achieve optimal results, and most will have therapy in combination with other regrowth systems. The true beauty of treatment cost effectiveness is seen when most successful patient results return for repeat treatments annually. As with any procedure, an initial consultation and medical history with Dr. Patt is necessary to determine candidacy for PRP therapy.
Schedule Your Consultation
While losing your hair can be a traumatic experience, re-growing it doesn’t have to be. With PRP Therapy, you can use your own blood cells to stimulate the hair restoration process in a natural way.
