What You Should Know About PRP for Hair Loss
As we age, most of us will experience changes in our hair — from the color and thickness to the rate at which our hair grows and even how much hair we shed each day. Unfortunately, some people begin to lose hair earlier or more profoundly than expected, leaving them feeling less than confident about their overall appearance. At Atomic Beauty in Frisco, TX, owners Dr. Aimee Nguyen and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Najera, along with our team of aesthetic medical experts, believe that all men and women deserve to love the way they look — from head to toe — and we are proud to offer PRP hair rejuvenation as a solution for patients who are experiencing unwanted hair thinning or loss. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the fundamentals of PRP treatment for hair loss, including how it works, what kinds of results you can expect, and whether you may be an ideal candidate for this exciting procedure.
What causes hair loss?
A combination of factors can contribute to thinning hair or baldness, though genetics typically plays a prominent role in hair loss overall. In addition, your diet, lifestyle, stress, and even certain hair styling products you use may impact the growth/shed rate and density of your hair.
What hair restoration treatments actually work?
If it feels like you have tried every over-the-counter hair loss product without success, you’re not alone. Many of these DIY hair restoration solutions do little to restore hair growth and/or slow the rate of hair shedding. Without question, in-office professional hair rejuvenation treatments and procedures are one of your best bets for achieving reliable and lasting results. At Atomic Beauty, many patients find PRP hair rejuvenation therapy to be a fitting option, as the treatment is convenient, nonsurgical, and requires no downtime. Not only that, but PRP hair rejuvenation does not use synthetic chemicals or medications, making the risk of adverse or allergic reactions virtually nonexistent.
How does PRP hair restoration work?
PRP hair rejuvenation is a quick and convenient in-office treatment that can be performed in about one hour. To begin, a small tube of blood will be taken from the arm via a routine blood draw. In our on-site centrifuge, the blood will be spun to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is then prepared into a serum. Once the scalp is numbed with a local anesthetic, the PRP serum is injected into areas of thinning hair or baldness, like a widening part. Finally, microneedling is performed on the treatment areas to allow the PRP serum to infuse deep into the tissues for the most comprehensive treatment and successful outcome possible.
Over the next several weeks and months, the supercharged regenerative properties within the PRP work to strengthen hair follicles, encourage new and faster hair growth, and slow shedding, resulting in a thicker, fuller, more youthful head of hair.
Am I a candidate for PRP hair loss injections?
Most patients who are otherwise healthy can be considered eligible for PRP hair rejuvenation. Optimal results are typically achieved by patients who:
- Are in good health
- Have recently noticed thinning hair
- Have early or mild concerns regarding hair loss or thinning hair
- Have hair loss related to stress, genetics, and other nonmedical factors
During your initial consultation for PRP hair treatments in Frisco, TX, our knowledgeable team will review your health and medical history, discuss your concerns, examine your areas of hair loss, and determine whether you may be an appropriate candidate for treatment.
