By 50, half of all men and women have visible hair loss, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it. The exceptional team at FIX Medical Group has helped many people rejuvenate their appearance with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration. PRP, one of today’s most advanced regenerative treatments, restores hair follicles and stimulates natural hair growth. Book an appointment online today or call the office in San Diego, California, and Scottsdale, Arizona, to learn more about PRP hair restoration.
PRP hair restoration restores hair growth by injecting platelets into your scalp. As the PRP flows into hair follicles, it heals and revitalizes the follicles, resulting in new hair growth.
Platelets are naturally present in your blood. When you suffer an injury or develop a disease, platelets automatically travel to the damaged tissues and release proteins called growth factors.
Growth factors then activate cellular activities that heal the tissues. The most essential of these activities are:
After your FIX Medical Group provider injects PRP into your scalp, growth factors accelerate and enhance all these healing activities. The follicles heal and start growing hair again, producing new hair that is thicker and healthier than before.
When you notice thinning or balding hair, consult the FIX Medical Group team about PRP hair restoration. PRP is derived from your own blood, so it’s safe, with no chance of side effects.
Though illness, nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune diseases, and wearing tight hairstyles lead to hair loss, the top cause in men and women is androgenetic alopecia. This inherited condition makes the follicles hypersensitive to a hormone (DHT). The DHT shrinks the follicles, halting hair growth.
Androgenetic alopecia, also called male-pattern and female-pattern baldness, causes distinct hair loss patterns. Men experience a receding hairline and loss of hair from the tops of their heads, while women experience thinning over their entire scalps.
For the first step, your provider takes your blood and processes it in a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the platelets and plasma, creating the PRP they use for hair restoration.
After applying a topical anesthetic to your scalp, your FIX Medical Group provider injects the PRP. Most patients need several treatments to get the best results. Your provider explains the process and gives you all the details before your first session.
If you have underlying problems contributing to your hair loss, like a nutritional deficiency, your provider combines PRP injections with the other treatments you need to support new hair growth.
