Thinning hair 101

It’s normal to lose 100 or more strands of hair every day. In times of stress or illness, the number can be significantly higher. But when that’s the cause, your excessive hair shedding is temporary, and your hair should regain its fullness within six months

However, thinning hair caused by actual hair loss, which occurs when your hair stops growing entirely, is another matter. Hair loss, typically an inherited condition, won’t improve on its own. There are many treatments for hair loss. But if you’re looking for a non-surgical approach with long-term results, PRP is your answer.

How PRP reverses hair loss

PRP therapy is a three-step process. First, a small sample of blood is extracted from your arm. The blood is then spun in a machine called a centrifuge. The spinning process separates your platelets and plasma to create a concentrated PRP serum. Platelets are part of your body’s arsenal of healing power designed to repair and restore damaged cells. 

Step two is injecting the PRP serum into specific locations on your scalp, focusing on those where hair loss is most noticeable. The PRP formula stimulates hair growth immediately, although results aren’t instantly apparent.

Your scalp needs time to heal. Typically, new hair growth begins about 3-4 months post-treatment. You may be able to observe weekly changes as your hair continues growing. Many patients see a dramatic improvement in about 6-9 months.

Since PRP utilizes elements from your blood, you don’t have to worry about infection or allergic reaction with treatment.
