Reverse Your Hair Loss
If you want a non-surgical option to decrease your hair loss and stimulate thicker, natural hair growth without the use of chemicals or medication, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy could be the perfect solution for you.
PRP hair restoration therapy is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that uses your body’s growth factors to thicken and regrow your own natural hair. The process begins by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm. The blood is put into a centrifuge, which spins the blood to separate the plasma from red blood cells.
Plasma is rich in platelets, which contain healing growth factors. Growth factors signal your healthy tissue to regenerate and multiply, which has led to the use of PRP for anti-aging therapies and to treat arthritis and injuries. When used on the scalp, PRP can effectively increase natural hair growth, thicken hair follicles, reduce shedding and revive dormant hair.
What to Expect
PRP therapy is performed at the Global Center for Hair Restoration, in Nashville. With an attending physician present, Clinical Director, Benjamin Sell, PA-C will draw your blood and administer your plasma to the areas of your scalp where your hair has thinned through a series of injections. A topical anesthetic is used, so the injections are virtually painless.
While your scalp may feel a little sore the day of your treatment, you can return to your normal activities at any time. Most patients begin noticing gradual, improved hair growth within four to six months. To achieve optimal results, a minimum of four PRP sessions is recommended.
Is PRP Right for You?
PRP hair restoration is especially effective for healthy men and women who do not have underlying health conditions affecting the skin, blood or liver. Some types of hair loss respond better to PHP hair restoration therapy than others. Studies have shown that those in the early stages of hair loss are the best candidates for PRP because hair follicles that have been dormant for a long time can be challenging to restore.
