Hair Loss or thinning hair can be frustrating! One of the best solutions for hair loss at Youthtopia Med Spa is PRP Injections in the scalp. PRP is Platelet-Rich Plasma that is taken from your own blood to help stimulate natural hair growth!
What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP is one of the components in your blood that has growth factors. For hair loss, the process is three-steps:
1.) A vial of your own blood is drawn & spun in a centrifuge that separates the PRP from the blood so that it can be withdrawn.
2.) When the blood spins, it separates into three layers, red blood cells, PRP & platelet-poor plasma.
3.) Once the blood layers are separated, the PRP is drawn and injected into the scalp at the hair follicle level. Injecting the PRP into the scalp helps stimulate hair growth.
PRP hair restoration typically takes multiple treatments spaced between 4-6 weeks. Follow-up treatments can continue for up to 6 months after the initial 3 treatments. There is minimal pain associated with this treatment but numbing cream can be applied, if desired. Additionally, there is minimal to no downtime associated with this treatment & results are amazing!
With PRP hair restoration, there is a low risk for foreign diseases because it comes from your own blood. Some potential side effects to keep in mind with any injection are:
- Nerve or blood vessel injury
- Calcification at the injection site
Before you begin treatment please tell our staff if you are on blood thinners, smoke, are on any medications or have any medical conditions. Overall, this treatment is a great way to stimulate natural hair growth!
