Struggling with thinning hair or a receding hairline? You don’t have to live with it! At Bougie Aesthetics, we can walk you through how to restore your hairline with PRP treatments.
A person’s hair is often considered a key characteristic of their youth or beauty. For both men and women, hair loss can be extremely disappointing since thinning hair is associated with an aged appearance.
If you’re worried about your thinning hair, pattern baldness, or receding hairline, now’s the time to consider PRP treatments. But what is PRP and how does it promote hair regrowth? We’ll walk you through the process and the benefits of PRP treatments so you can reclaim confidence in your hair.
What is PRP?
Your blood contains vital elements for healing your body – platelets. Platelets are blood cells that are primarily responsible for blood clotting and helping wounds heal. They are also known to contain growth factors, which trigger the regrowth of the body’s cells and contribute to tissue regeneration.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is made up of both the plasma from the blood and these precious platelets. PRP has been successfully used in anti-aging treatments and in reducing the appearance of scars on the skin. Most notably, the treatment has seen recognized success in hair restoration.
How the PRP Treatment Process Works
There are just a few steps in the PRP treatment process. First, your blood is drawn – typically from your arm – so that the blood’s amazing healing properties can be harnessed. This is accomplished in the next step, which is when your provider will separate the platelet-rich plasma from the blood by placing it into a spinning centrifuge. Finally, the separated plasma is injected into the treatment area for the correction of wrinkles, scars, or hair loss.
Because of the growth factors in PRP injections, the body’s healing response is kicked into gear in the treatment area, leading to smoother skin, more even tone, and hair growth. For hair loss, PRP treatments are often applied in areas like the hairline and thinning or balding spots on the head.
The Many Benefits of PRP Treatments for Hair Loss
So, why would you choose PRP over other hair loss treatments? The answer is in the benefits!
The Treatment is All-Natural
When it comes to injectables, many people worry about the risks of putting chemicals or synthetic substances into their bodies. With PRP, however, what’s being injected is your own blood. There’s no risk of allergic reactions or other adverse effects due to unnatural substances.
Hair Restoration + Brighter, Younger-Looking Skin
Not only does PRP encourage new hair growth, but it also boosts collagen production in the targeted area, which combats dark spots, sun damage, acne scarring, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
No Downtime After PRP Treatment
PRP injections are a minimally invasive treatment. This means you won’t have to schedule downtime after your session and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately following your injections.
How Long Do PRP Hair Regrowth Treatments Last?
Your initial treatment plan will consist of multiple sessions over four to six weeks for the best hair restoration results. However, since PRP treatments aren’t permanent, the results will only last about a year. It’s recommended that you schedule maintenance treatments every six months to a year to ensure your hair restoration is kept up.
Who is a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration Treatments?
While this “liquid gold” treatment works wonders for many people, it’s not right for everyone. PRP is ideal for people who have thinning hair or have just started to lose their hair. It cannot help with complete hair loss or regrowing hair in fully bald spots on the head.
If you suffer from certain chronic conditions, take certain medications, or are a heavy smoker, you also may not be a good candidate for PRP + Growth Factors treatments.
