PRP for Hair Regrowth
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment for hair regrowth has shown promising results in both males and females!
Most cases of hair loss, even hereditary, are treatable conditions.
Unfortunately, hair loss is a fact of life. At birth, we have all the hair follicles we’ll ever have. As we age, many of those follicles weaken and stop producing hair, causing thinning, a receding hairline, and baldness.
Hair loss can be viewed as a natural part of aging for some, while others may find it traumatizing. Hair loss is a rather personal experience that can result in low self-esteem and low self-confidence.
Many feel helpless, but it doesn’t have to be that way anymore! Visit Fountain of You MD, Your Hair Regrowth Specialists in Virginia Beach.
How It Works
Treatment involves harvesting the patient’s own plasma by drawing blood and placing it into a special centrifuge that separates the plasma from other blood components.
This results in Platelet Rich Plasma which is then drawn into yet another syringe and used for the injections.
The PRP is then injected into the scalp using a small needling device which stimulates that wound healing process.
PRP for hair regrowth stimulates new cell growth wherever it is injected thus resulting in new hair growth. Growth factors and cytokines are signaling proteins that have a stimulating effect on the stem cells located within the targeted area.
Stem cells are found throughout the entire body and play a key role in repairing damaged tissue
Due to the fact that the patient’s own blood is used in the process, allergic reaction and infection is almost non-existent.
The Secret to Success
The goal is to start some kind of hair regrowth therapy during the early stages of hair loss before the follicles are permanently lost. There are a variety of methods to nourish and support our follicles, but compliance is the key to achieving results.
PRP is injected into the scalp using a small needling device after the scalp has been thoroughly numbed with a local anestheic.
The entire treatment, including blood processing and injections, lasts roughly 60 minutes. Multiple treatments may be necessary.
Remember, we are fighting the aging process, so this is an ongoing effort, and results may vary. We will continue treatment in order to achieve positive results.
The initial injection treatment triggers the wound healing phase and is then followed by the inflammatory phase. The inflammatory phase then causes the stem cells to regenerate leading to the healing phase.
