How Does PRP Help With Hair Loss?
Whether you’re a man or woman, hair loss can be a very traumatic experience. Balding or thinning hair will impact your appearance and self-confidence in a big way, which is why treating this cosmetic is a priority for millions who have experienced the issue. Baltic Beauty Centre’s team of licensed aestheticians provide fast and effective PRP hair loss treatments to help you rediscover the joys that a full head of hair can bring.
What is PRP?
The acronym PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, and describes a three-step cosmetic treatment that focuses on the concept of using a patient’s own blood to stimulate natural hair growth in the treatment area. It is believed that this occurs due to the increased blood supply and thickening of the hair follicles.
PRP treatments typically take place over three sessions because only 30% of hair follicles are in the active growth stage at any given moment. The process may be used to thicken the hair, restore growth in balding areas, and encourage natural regrowth for receding hairlines. At Baltic Beauty Centre, the three steps are as follows;
- Blood is drawn from the arm and put into a machine (centrifuge) that separates the different fluids within the blood.
- After around 10 minutes, the blood will be separated into three distinct parts: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells.
- The PRP parts of the blood are put into a syringe before being injected into the area(s) of the scalp that requires treatment.
The PRP process subsequently stimulates and activates the hair growth phase to make the hair become thicker while also boosting the hair count to transform the appearance of your head. While PRP is also used for skin rejuvenation and joint care, hair growth is the most commonly-used function by far.
PRP for Hair Loss Benefits
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a relatively new innovation but is already a highly popular solution. Firstly, by using a patient’s own blood, there is no risk of allergic reactions. Moreover, the effectiveness translates to visible results in as little as three months while there is minimal downtime required after the session. Crucially, the versatility of the process means it can be used to treat virtually all types of hair loss issues.
The clinical advantages over alternative treatments are plentiful. From a lifestyle perspective, the following rewards can be enjoyed;
- Regain a fuller, healthier, younger-looking head of hair.
- Gain a younger appearance that influences your facial features.
- Regain the ability to apply flexible hairstyles.
- Improve your sense of self-confidence.
PRP may also save money in the long run by removing the wasted expenses on inferior treatments and products designed to mask hair loss.
