Many men and women experience significant hair loss as they age and it can be frustrating to search for hair restoration solutions that may or may not work. Losing your hair can affect your self-confidence and self-esteem, but the good news is there is a natural hair restoration solution available.
We offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) micro needling treatments for patients who are concerned about hair loss. For this treatment, we use the patient’s own blood to extract plasma. Plasma must be separated from the blood using a special machine and can then be applied topically to start rejuvenating the scalp or the skin. Platelets are in all of our blood cells and contain an abundance of growth factors. PRP is a highly concentrated solution of those platelets in the plasma and it’s one of the reasons why we use it to treat the hair follicles. We use a microneedling device to deliver PRP deep into the scalp.
Micro needling is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that works by creating very small punctures in the skin. A micro needling pen designed with a head of tiny needles is passed over the skin to create small wounds. As these wounds are opened up, we apply PRP over the treatment areas so the skin can absorb the plasma and growth factors can travel down to the hair follicles immediately. This speeds up the regeneration process and, in the case of hair loss, can trigger the scalp’s natural hair restoration abilities.
The procedure itself is easy to tolerate and performed using topical anesthesia to minimize pain and discomfort. It’s performed entirely in the office and begins with a blood draw so we can extract the plasma. PRP micro needling for hair loss can be especially effective for patients who are concerned about a receding hair line or for those who have developed small bald patches.
Multiple treatments may be necessary, depending on the extent of hair loss and desired results. We can go over your recommended treatment plan and address any questions you might have about the procedure during your consultation. Cost varies by area and we can share pricing options for your treatment plan during your first visit.
PRP for Facial Rejuvenation
PRP microneedling can also be an effective facial rejuvenation treatment. Growth factors can help heal acne scars and lighten pigmentation to rejuvenate your skin.
