Most people aren’t exactly thrilled with the prospect of getting older, let alone hair loss. With grays, receding hairlines, and wrinkles, aging isn’t for the fainthearted. Thankfully, technology has offered ways for patients to look as youthful as they feel, and Dr. Bradford Patt is pleased to provide some of the best anti-aging treatments available today. Now providing PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatments for hair loss, patients can regrow hair without surgery. So, if you’re starting to lose hair, or if it’s thinning, and you’re wondering if you should consider PRP, the answer is “Yes!”, and here’s why:
According to data from the American Hair Loss Association, almost 85% of men and 40% of women will lose their hair at some point. The condition can cause significant distress, including body image disorders and severe anxiety. However, with platelet rich plasma treatments, patients can dramatically improve their self-confidence.
The regenerative effects of this treatment therapy come from the patient’s own blood cells. Platelets contain a growth hormone that can assist in the regeneration of skin, hair, and more. During the procedure, facial plastic surgeons like Dr. Patt, take blood from the patient’s arm, separate the PRP platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood cells in a centrifuge, and inject the rich serum back into certain parts of the scalp. This is natural and regenerates growth in areas where there is thinning and/or balding.
Treatment Without Surgery
Recently, hair regrowth required invasive treatments and often resulted in significant scarring. A major reason Dr. Patt’s patients like this treatment, is that it comes with no scarring and minimal downtime. Patients can return to regular daily activities the next day.
It’s Simple & Affordable
Most hair regrowth treatments require a significant investment and take several visits. However, the PRP treatment can be done in as little as a half-hour, and there’s no recovery time. Furthermore, it comes at a fraction of the cost of more invasive hair regrowth options.
Studies show that PRP therapy treatments can promote increased follicular strength and hair regrowth. Most patients notice increased growth within three months, and because it’s their own real hair, patients look natural without others noticing that something has been done.
Is it the Right Choice?
The PRP form of hair restoration treatment is ideal for those in the preliminary phase of hair loss, with only a few dead follicles. If a patient is looking for a hair regrowth treatment that doesn’t involve surgery, this procedure may be the right choice. It’s best to consult with Dr. Patt and his team of professionals to confirm if it’s an option for you.
