PRP Therapy for Hair Loss

Baldness is a condition that affects many people. Both males and females can be affected by this condition and the cause of it can range from a medical condition that can cause thinning or complete loss of the hair, to normal age related male and female patterned baldness (typically at the forehead or the top of the head). Typically individuals, suffering from this condition, have turned to lotions, topical treatments or painful hair transplant procedures but a fairly new and effective non-surgical form of treatment to stimulate hair growth has become available.

By using your body’s own blood, which can be drawn right in the physician’s office, they are able to extract plasma rich protein (or PRP) after spinning in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. Plasma rich protein is known for being rich in stem cells, and this can now be used to stimulate hair growth. By using this steam cell for hair growth procedure, patients will be able to see hair restoration and thickening in as little as 2 months and this can continue for as long as one year. This steam cells for hair growth procedure works by injecting the plasma rich protein into the scalp and can also be used topically to begin stimulating hair follicles to grow.

Stem cells hair growth is a safe and relatively painless procedure that can be also used in conjunction with other hair restoration procedures to ensure the likelihood of these procedures being successful. Complications from the procedure include only mild redness and swelling which can be relieved by the use of ibuprofen or other mild pain reliever.

The science behind this steam cell for hair growth procedure has been backed by the positive results from the use of PRP in other forms of medical treatment. Some of these include cosmetics, sports medicine (such as with Tiger Woods’ knee injury), orthopedics and neurosurgery, to name a few. The stem cells hair growth procedure will work by allowing the PRP to stimulate existing hair follicles and encourage them to either regenerate and/or reactivate hair growth.
