Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP hair restoration at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa is an option for those with thinning hair who are in search of answers to help them with this frustrating and often embarrassing situation. PRP is a great process that allows you to use your own body’s cells to stimulate follicular development. How does it work?
Platelet-rich plasma works by drawing blood from your arm by one of our registered nurses, just as if you were to go to a doctor’s office and have blood work done. It’s simple, safe, and easy. Once blood is removed, the tube of plasma goes into a special machine that separates the different layers and types of cells.
The part of the plasma that is platelet-rich is then used to help with hair growth. This is done by injecting the PRP into the scalp. Pretty neat, right? What’s even better is that this super rich plasma has properties that target and rejuvenate your stagnant follicles.
One of the important aspects of choosing PRP hair restoration is by starting it as soon as possible. The sooner you start, the better your results. That means that if you notice excessive shedding of hair, whether you notice it when showering, styling your hair, or maybe on your pillow, it’s the ideal time to set up an appointment to discuss PRP hair restoration.
When you’re shedding hair and it seems to be thinning, a lot of times what’s happening is there’s a lack of circulation in the area. By injecting a new supply of platelet-rich plasma to the area, you’re helping bring increased circulation to it with the right cells. You’re nurturing your hair follicles with the cells they need. This rejuvenates the area and helps stimulate new growth.
PRP treatments aren’t new. This isn’t fly-by-night science. PRP cells are used in medical settings for things like healing injured tissue, tendons, muscle and ligaments. Sometimes, when you hear about a new treatment, you start to question if it will really work. It’s understandable, but in this instance, if you look up PRP, you’ll see that it’s been around since the 1980’s, which means 40 years of medicinal use.
When it comes to using PRP for hair restoration, it’s not a one-time treatment. You’ll need to repeat the treatment a couple times for the best results, and then there are maintenance treatments about every 6 months. Yes, there’s a bit of time involved, but to rid yourself of the anxiety and embarrassment of hair thinning, especially as a woman, you’ll be so grateful you invested the time.
People are used to seeing men lose hair over time, and while it’s a touchy subject for some men, for women it can be heartbreaking. Whether you’re losing hair in patches or thinning all over, take heart—there is help. We understand what a difficult experience this is, and how it impacts a woman in a completely different way than a man. As a society in general, we anticipate men may lose hair, but we never think about it as women. Thankfully, there’s help. Look into PRP hair restoration and know there are answers that may help you.
