How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work and is it Permanent?

hair restoration patient

Hair loss can affect your look and self-confidence, but it is a problem that you can control and treat in many ways. If you are finally ready to consider hair restoration options, one of the most effective treatments you can have is Hair Restoration with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP treatments are a safe way to slow hair loss and regrow your hair, using a state-of-the-art technique which relies on platelets extracted from your own blood. This hair restoration treatment has very low risks, is effective and is also completely natural. You can learn more about how PRP works and the results you can have below.

How does PRP Hair Restoration work?

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has many direct, positive effects on hair growth and is an ideal treatment for those who desire a natural and safe hair restoration solution. PRP contains several natural growth factors which can help give patients a healthier scalp and hairs. For example, PRP includes:

  • Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) —this compound facilitates skin and blood vessel growth and cell replication
  • Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b) — this compound aids the growth of the matrix between cells
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) — supports the formation of blood vessels
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) — stimulates cell growth, the formation of blood vessels formation and collagen production
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2) —supports specialized cell and blood vessel formation
  • Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF) — helps regulate healthy and normal cell physiology

When introduced into the tissues of the scalp, the growth factors listed above can have a material impact on the health and regeneration of the stem cells of the hair follicle, leading to the formation of healthier follicles and hairs and an overall improved hairline, naturally.

Is Hair Restoration with PRP a comfortable procedure?

Your hair restoration treatment with PRP begins with a visit to our office where your blood is drawn, just as it would be for routine testing and analysis. After sufficient blood has been taken, it is then put into a centrifuge where it is spun at a high velocity to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other components of the blood. Once the PRP has been isolated, your physician will then inject the PRP into areas of the scalp where you are experiencing hair loss. Both the drawing of blood and introduction of the PRP into the scalp is performed using fine needles and most patients find both aspects of the procedure highly tolerable. PRP is also safe. The entire process is conducted using sterilized equipment, all but eliminating the risk of foreign contaminants affecting the PRP. Also, since PRP is an autologous treatment (the blood is taken from your own body), there is virtually no risk of an adverse reaction to the treatment.

Is Hair Restoration with PRP permanent?

Hair restoration with PRP is not a permanent solution to all forms of hair loss, but it is a long-lasting one. You can easily maintain your results with follow-ups once annually after your initial series of treatments. All patients are unique, however, so you may need more or fewer treatments to maintain your ideal level of rejuvenation. Consult with a hair restoration specialist, like Dr. Manu Aggarwal at the Vein Care Center, to plan the ideal hair care routine based on your needs.

How does PRP Hair Restoration compare against other hair treatment methods?

Hair Restoration with PRP is an autologous treatment since it uses your body’s own growth factors to produce your healthy hair results. By contrast, alternative treatments for hair loss, like topicals or oral medications, have some risks which PRP does not. For example, a loss of libido, headaches and hair growth in unwanted body locations are all reported side effects of minoxidil and finasteride, two common hair restoration treatments. Finasteride has also been known to complicate fetal development and is not recommended for women who are or wish to become pregnant. Prospective patients can easily avoid these risks while enjoying their results safely when they choose PRP-based hair restoration treatments.
