Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is a revolutionary med spa procedure that can restore hair growth in a minimally invasive way.
This treatment has an established record of high potential in hair restoration as it uses the body’s own natural growth factors to rejuvenate damaged hair follicles offering hair re-growth in regions of the scalp that have undergone the PRP treatment.
Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides PRP injections for hair restoration to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
PRP Hair Restoration
Researchers believed for a long time that hair follicles that stopped generating hair are dead. But recent studies indicate that these unproductive hair follicles are only damaged, injured, or dormant.
These follicles can be rejuvenated to re-grow hair in the long-term. PRP hair restoration procedure can help patients accomplish this objective.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is found in the human body. This plasma contains powerful growth factors. The health care provider will inject these growth factors into the impacted areas on the scalp to activate the dead adult stem cells in the compromised hair follicle.
At the same time, these growth factors promote the re-generation of localized cells and develop new blood vessels to revitalize the hair follicles.
The PRP treatment provider will take a small amount of blood from the patient. Then they will process this blood in a centrifugal system to separate the PRP and rejuvenate the growth factors within it. The provider will apply a local anesthetic to the treatment area of the scalp when the PRP is ready to be injected.
The PRP hair restoration specialist will inject it into the regions that are most impacted by hair loss. They will use a very fine gauge needle to inject the PRP in a matrix pattern.
The patient may undergo the PRP hair restoration med spa treatment combined with a low-level laser therapy to improve the effectiveness of the results, depending on their specific needs.
Cutting-Edge Treatment Approaches
PRP medical spa treatment outcomes are constantly improving as hair re-growth techniques with PRP are developing further and becoming more advanced. PRP treatment commonly involves only one treatment session.
However, some experts recommend a number of PRP sessions to improve the effectiveness of the treatment. This therapy also helps enhance the hair graft survival rate when used before or during a hair transplant procedure.
