Restore Your Hair With PRP

Hair loss can be a stress­ful and emo­tion­al expe­ri­ence for many peo­ple because hair is part of your iden­ti­ty. Yet, as we age, it is nor­mal for hair to grad­u­al­ly thin and change tex­ture, how­ev­er, some peo­ple lose hair at a more dras­tic rate than others.

While the rate of hair loss will vary among indi­vid­u­als, com­mon caus­es may include phys­i­cal stress, preg­nan­cy, cer­tain pre­scrip­tion med­ica­tions, vit­a­min defi­cien­cy, autoim­mune dis­or­ders and hered­i­tary pat­tern baldness.

Rea­sons for hair loss can be numer­ous but at DMGAes­thet­ics, we offer a rev­o­lu­tion­ary solu­tion for hair restora­tion that may be the answer to your hair loss problems.

The platelet-rich plas­ma pro­ce­dure for hair restora­tion, or PRP, is designed to pro­duce nat­ur­al hair regrowth through the col­lec­tion of your own blood and platelets. Dur­ing your vis­it, a small amount of blood will be drawn and mixed with a cell sep­a­ra­tor gel and your PRP will be inject­ed into your hair loss area to stim­u­late regrowth.

The total pro­ce­dure takes around 30 min­utes and the num­ber of treat­ments need­ed will depend on your desired out­come and your doctor’s treat­ment plan.

While it is pos­si­ble for some patients to expe­ri­ence tem­po­rary irri­ta­tion around the injec­tion site, there have been no know side effects asso­ci­at­ed with PRP, includ­ing aller­gic reactions.

If you’re expe­ri­enc­ing hair loss, do not hes­i­tate to sched­ule a con­sul­ta­tion with one of our doctors.

    Early in my training at the Mayo Clinic I was taught that the interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered. With that as my guiding principle, I strive to create a warm and trusting relationship with my patients so they may feel at ease discussing their skin care issues with me. I believe strongly in educating patients on how best they can be in control of their own outcomes; they are the ones who live day to day in their own skin and I need them to help with their care plan! Lastly, I try to administer a healthy dose of laughter with each prescription or procedure as I've found this helps my patients get better more quickly.
