Receding hair, bald spots, and thinning hair are some of the most unpleasant signs of aging. There are many methods and treatments for hair restoration, but PRP is unique because it offers a natural solution to thinning hair that is both effective and minimally invasive.
At The Skin Elite we understand your frustration and we’re ready to assist you in the restoration of your hair with PRP (platelet rich plasma), a naturally-occurring substance created from your own blood.
PRP is extremely effective in restoring natural hair growth in men and women. As the PRP is extracted from your own blood, the treatment is all-natural and requires minimal, if any, recovery time. The treatment is non-surgical; it is suitable for almost any person looking to improve thinning hair.
Most people begin to experience hair loss in their late thirties and forties, but for some thinning or balding occurs in their twenties. Because it triggers the body’s natural regenerative process, hair restoration with PRP is a safe and reliable method for restoring healthy hair follicles for people of any age.
HAIR RESTORATION PROCEDURE WITH PRP
Your hair restoration procedure with PRP will begin by drawing a small sample of your blood, as would occur in a standard blood test. The sample is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from other blood products. PRP is a highly concentrated solution containing growth factors – the naturally occurring substances that stimulate cell growth, health, and proliferation.
The PRP will then be injected into your scalp to restore healthy hair growth. The PRP stimulates the stem cells in the inactive hair follicles to trigger new hair growth. Once the injections are completed, your scalp will be cleaned.
After the procedure, you are free to resume your daily activities
RECOVERY TIME AFTER HAIR RESTORATION WITH PRP
One of the most significant advantages of hair restoration with PRP is the fast treatment and lack of any needed recovery time. Some patients like to take the remainder of the day to rest, but it would simply be for your comfort, and is not vital to the healing process. There are no incisions to care for and anesthesia is not necessary, so you will not be left feeling foggy or disoriented.
You will need to avoid extended periods of sun exposure, but generally you can resume your daily routine immediately after treatment.
