Have you been noticing a little more visible scalp when looking in the mirror or you are needing to dehair your brush more than you used to? It’s something we all have considered from time to time. Our hair is something very important to all of us. From an early age, it is something we consider part of our identity. Everything from the color to the style. But what happens when our hair starts to get to the point where there isn’t enough to style it like we want to or use to?
Image Surgical Arts is excited to bring you an option for hair loss. Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP as it is more commonly known, has shown to have tremendous results in regards to hair loss. PRP is a combination of your own natural growth factors that can stimulate hair follicles. PRP works at the level of the hair follicle. It can stimulate dormant hair follicles to start growing again. Dormant follicles are those that have “given up” on producing those luscious locks you used to know and love. Not only will it stimulate the dormant follicles, but it can also stimulate “tired” follicles. Tired follicles are those that still produce hair, but the hair produced is thinner and more brittle than the hair you used to know.
PRP is obtained from your own body. One of our skilled providers will draw a sample of your own blood and we then concentrate your own growth factors from that sample. There is no risk of reaction to the growth factors since they are entirely your own. Once this is complete, a series of injections is performed with a small needle (the same size needle that is used for Botox or Dysport treatments) into the areas of hair loss. Over time, most people see a noticeable difference in not only the amount but also the quality of hair produced.
We usually recommend a series of three treatments 4-6 weeks apart. Each treatment can often be done in as little as 30-45 minutes from check-in to check-out. There is no downtime and you can return to work or other regular activities the same day. To minimize discomfort, we use small needles and we can offer our patients Nitrous Oxide to take the edge off and calm your nerves.
