Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Restoration?

Thinning hair doesn’t have to be permanent. Today, you can choose from a variety of hair restoration options — assuming you’re a good candidate for them. For example, before you can be considered a good candidate for surgical hair restoration, you need to have a years-long, stable pattern of hair loss. 

While some hair restoration treatments may require you to wait until your hair loss is already highly noticeable, Island Lotus Health & Wellness offers a different option. At our office in Brunswick, Georgia, Serena Skinner, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, and our team can help you regrow hair before hair loss is noticeable with non-surgical hair restoration using platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

In fact, with this innovative treatment, we can help a wide variety of people naturally grow thick heads of full hair.

The best candidates for PRP hair restoration

PRP hair restoration can work for many different types of patients. That’s because this safe, minimally invasive treatment relies on platelets from your own blood. When injected into your scalp, these platelets trigger healing and regeneration in your hair follicles. They improve circulation in the area and give your hair follicles — even ones that have fallen dormant — what they need to grow thick, healthy hair. 

Basically, PRP hair restoration supports your head’s natural hair-growing ability. That’s why this treatment is most effective when it’s applied early. When you start to notice signs of hair thinning or hair loss, don’t wait to talk to our team at Island Lotus Health & Wellness. We can give your hair follicles that treatment they need to reverse hair loss and continue growing healthy, thick hair through the years. 

People who should skip PRP hair restoration

While PRP hair restoration works for a broad variety of people, there are two instances in which you may want to consider other treatment options. First, if you have a chronic health condition that causes hair loss over time (like a thyroid disorder or lupus), the hair the PRP helps you grow will likely fall out. 

Secondly, if you’re on blood thinners, that medication can make your platelets less effective. PRP hair restoration may not be your best option.

Getting the best results from your PRP hair restoration treatment

People who follow the Island Lotus Health & Wellness-recommended treatment plan see the best results from PRP hair restoration. Usually, this means an initial series of a few treatments, spaced weeks or months apart, followed by periodic touch-up treatments to maintain your results. 

Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see results from your PRP treatment right away. Most patients start to see the reversal of hair thinning and loss within a couple of months, with full results around six months after treatment.
