Pattern baldness is a common issue affecting both men and women worldwide. While some people don’t mind going bald, others prefer retaining a full head of luxurious hair to wash and style as they please. Hair loss for those who aren’t ready for it can be especially difficult. Luckily, our medical specialists here at Rosewood Health Care & Medical Spa can provide you with the power of regenerative medicine. Using the newest technique in hair restoration, we can now offer a solution to those struggling with hair loss. Our PRP hair restoration treatment uses the power of platelet-rich plasma to safely and effectively restore hair without the need for difficult surgery or medication.
What Is Platelet-rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma , also known as “autologous conditioned plasma,” is a substance derived from one’s own blood. Over the years, PRP has become a widely accepted treatment used in skin rejuvenation, hair loss, and general healthcare. Our PRP hair restoration treatment works by using your blood to promote your body’s natural regenerative process. When injected into the scalp, the PRP promotes hair regrowth by stimulating dormant follicles. The treatment process is quick and can be done comfortably at our facility Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. The result is improved hair thickness with very little downtime.
PRP Hair Restoration Process
When you visit us in Mt. Pleasant, we will begin the PRP hair restoration process by first drawing a small amount of blood and then separating the platelets using a centrifuge. Afterward, we will take the extracted PRP and inject it into the hair bearing areas on your scalp. This process takes roughly 30 minutes to perform in total. During the session, you will feel tiny pin prick-like sensations, similar to getting standard needle injections during a general health checkup. Because these may cause some discomfort, a topical numbing cream and a cold air chiller can be provided to make the experience easier.
PRP Hair Restoration Results
After your PRP hair restoration treatment, you can immediately resume your regular daily routine. However, though the treatment has no downtime, some precautions post-treatment should still be taken: We recommend refraining from hair styling products for 36 hours to avoid irritation. Furthermore, you should avoid hair dyes for about 2-3 weeks. If you are using a topical medication such as Rogaine, this may be resumed the following week. Patients can wash their hair the next day. To reduce swelling, we recommend using ice packs over the injected areas after 24 hours as needed. For most patients, maintenance treatments every 6-12 months may be necessary to help maintain long-lasting results.*
