Treating thinning hair can be a challenging issue for both men and women. Fortunately, there are natural treatments available, such as PRP injections, that can help restore hair growth without the need for surgery.
PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a natural component of your own blood that contains a concentrated amount of growth factors and other elements that stimulate tissue regeneration.
PRP Injections for Thinning Hair
PRP injections are a natural, non-surgical solution for hair restoration that has been proven effective in many cases. At Pain Free Orlando Wellness Center, we focus on the root of the problem by giving the scalp what it needs to heal itself.
PRP injections work by promoting the healing of hair follicles and stimulating rejuvenation in the scalp, resulting in natural hair growth.
Causes of Hair Loss We Treat
There are several causes of hair loss that we can treat with PRP injections, including:
- Male pattern baldness
- Female pattern baldness
- Certain types of alopecia (like areata and traction)
- Changes in hormones
- Chemotherapy and other treatments (if hair hasn’t regrown after)
What to Expect During the Procedure
PRP injections for thinning hair are an outpatient procedure that usually takes less than an hour to complete. When you arrive for your appointment, we will prep the scalp for treatment and take a small sample of blood from your arm.
The blood is then spun at a high speed in a centrifuge machine, which separates the red blood cells from the plasma and white blood cells.
The resulting golden serum of platelets and other healing components is then injected into the scalp where it is needed the most. The cytokines, proteins, peptides, and other elements get to work immediately, helping to signal the body to begin the healing process and begin restoring the damaged cells in that area.
Most patients feel minimal discomfort during the procedure, which is minimally invasive. A topical anesthetic can be used to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment. There is no downtime to worry about, and most patients can resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Results of PRP Injections for Thinning Hair
Results of PRP injections for thinning hair are often visible within as little as 1-2 months. Most patients require multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
However, PRP injections are a safe, effective, and natural solution to thinning hair that can help you avoid more invasive treatments like hair transplants.
