Platelet Rich Plasma

One of the most troubling signs of premature aging can be hair loss.  To make matters worse, thinning of the remaining hair on the top of the head can worsen the appearance. Thinning hair eventually affects most men and is equally a major problem in most women after menopause.  

PRP Treatments in Sarasota

Luckily, we can now offer a validated non-surgical treatment for hair loss and thinning.  It’s called platelet-rich-plasma or “PRP.” You might have heard of a skin treatment called the “PRP vampire facial” that uses your own growth factors to create a more youthful and glowing complexion. Similarly, PRP treatments have also been successfully applied over the last several years to treat hair loss, aiding in reactivating dormant follicles (new hair shafts), and in re-thicken thinning hair shafts. Good candidates are both males and females who are experiencing hair loss, and PRP especially responds best for those with signs of early hair loss.

How does it work?

Our blood is made up of red blood cells and plasma. Our plasma is composed of platelets and white blood cells which are rich in growth factors known to stimulate hair follicle activity and promote new hair growth. A number of scientifically based articles have shown that PRP increases hair count and thickness. The treatment starts with a standard blood draw. The tube of blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma from your red blood cells.  The plasma which is rich in growth factors and platelets is then directly injected into the area of your scalp at the hair follicle level. The injections are done in the area of your troubling hair loss and thinning. The entire process takes generally less than an hour and you are then free to go on with your daily life and activities. Results have been recorded after only one treatment but an additional one or two treatments are recommended for optimal results. This process has been used successfully over the past 10 years treating thousands of patients.  The largest studies have revealed significant improvement in over 70% of the patients treated.

What about female thinning and hair loss?

Independent scientific studies have proven that improvement occurs equally as well for women with thinning hair as it does for men.  In fact, the largest study so far has included over 4000 treatments and 60% of those treated were women. The combination of micro-channeling their own growth factors and stimulation of the scalp with micro-needling has helped large numbers of women improve the appearance of their hair.

How long does it take to see results and how long does it last?

After treatment with your own growth factors, most patients notice the beginning of hair growth/thickening within 2 months.  Maximum improvement usually takes 6-9 months. Though some studies have used one treatment every 6 months, most studies find that the best results occur with 2-3 sessions over the first 6 months.  Once the maximum benefit has been accomplished, over time, the benefits will begin to fade. Eventually, booster treatments with PRP will be necessary to maintain maximum improvement.

So, if you’re scalp is exposed due to thinning hair and hair loss, then you should investigate the cutting edge, natural, nonsurgical, safe and convenient way to reactivate dormant follicles and thicken existing hair using your own growth factors.
