Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is an innovative procedure that can restore hair growth in a minimally invasive manner.
This therapy has a proven record of high potential in hair rejuvenation as it uses the natural growth factors of the body to restore damaged hair follicles offering hair re-growth in regions of the scalp that have received the PRP treatment.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides advanced and proven hair restoration treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
PRP Hair Restoration
For a long time, researchers believed that for a long time that hair follicles that stopped producing hair are dead. However, recent studies indicate that these unproductive hair follicles are merely injured, damaged, or dormant. These follicles can be restored to re-grow hair in the long-run. The PRP hair restoration procedure enables patients to achieve this goal.
The human body has platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This plasma comprises robust growth factors. The medical care provider will inject these growth factors into the affected areas on the scalp to activate the dead adult stem cells in the damaged hair follicle.
Simultaneously, these growth factors enhance the re-generation of localized cells and create new blood vessels to rejuvenate the hair follicles.
In this procedure, the PRP treatment provider will take a small quantity of blood from the patient. They will then process this blood in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP and revitalize the growth factors within it. The provider will use a local anesthetic on the treatment site of the scalp when the PRP is ready to be injected.
The PRP hair restoration expert will inject it into the areas that are most affected by hair loss using a fine gauge needle to inject the PRP in a matrix pattern.
Depending on the patient’s unique needs, they may receive the PRP hair restoration medical spa treatment in combination with a low-level laser therapy to enhance the efficacy of the outcomes.
Innovative Treatment Approaches
PRP med spa treatment results are progressively improving as hair re-growth techniques with PRP are advancing further. PRP treatment usually involves only a single treatment session.
But some specialists recommend multiple PRP sessions to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. In addition, this treatment helps improve the rate of hair graft survival before or during a hair transplant procedure.
Types of Hair Loss treatable with PRP
PRP for hair restoration offers dramatic outcomes to patients experiencing hair loss due to various medical issues, such as:
- Alopecia Totalis
- Alopecia Areata
- Female Pattern Hair Loss
- Male Pattern Hair Loss
- Hair loss due to metabolic conditions, iron deficiency, and drug side-effects.
Most patients achieve remarkable new hair growth results and improvements in hair thickness, density, and elasticity. The results of the procedure will be visible within six to eight weeks of the initial treatment.
After the first treatment, the full results from the PRP treatment will take up to one year to become apparent. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for innovative and effective hair restoration treatments.
