Thinning Hair? Consider PRP Therapy

Are you embarrassed by your hair loss? Are you tired of trying to arrange your hair to make bald spots less noticeable, or hiding your thin hair under hats?

Whether it’s caused by genetics, hormonal changes, medications, or a medical condition, hair loss can be distressing and can make you feel unattractive.

How much hair loss is normal?

It is normal to lose a small amount of hair every day. However, if you are losing large quantities of hair and are developing bald patches, you may be suffering from hair loss. Some people with hair loss are able to regrow their hair without doing anything, but others need treatment.

There are a number of treatments that can help restore your hair, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP therapy is a great hair-restoration option that doesn’t involve surgery and has natural-looking results.

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can result from a number of conditions, including:

While hair loss can be distressing, PRP therapy offers a safe, easy, and effective treatment option that can restore your hair.

What is PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy harnesses your body’s ability to heal itself. Your blood contains a substance called plasma, which helps your blood clot when you have a cut.

Plasma also contains platelets that are essential to cell growth. Platelet-rich plasma can be injected into your scalp to help stimulate hair growth.

Dr. Todd Lucas and Serena Skinner, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, are PRP specialists at Island Lotus Health & Wellness who provide high-quality hair-restoration treatment.

What is the process for PRP therapy?

In the first step of PRP therapy, our practitioners draw a small quantity of your blood. Using a piece of equipment called a centrifuge, they then separate the plasma from the rest of your blood. The plasma is concentrated with platelets and prepared for injection.

The specialist cleans the targeted areas and numbs them to make you as comfortable as possible. Through a series of small injections, the specialist inserts the PRP into the areas of your scalp most affected by hair loss. This stimulates your hair follicles to regrow your hair.

You’ll usually need to come back every one to nine months for treatment. You can expect to see improvements in the first two to six months after beginning treatment.

What are the benefits of PRP therapy?

PRP therapy is a great option for hair restoration. It has a number of important benefits that include:

In addition, PRP hair-restoration therapy is performed as an outpatient procedure, which means you don’t need to stay in the hospital and can recover in the comfort of your own home.
