Combat Premature Hair Loss With PRP Hair Restoration Therapy in Austin

No one wants to think about the possibility of losing their hair. In reality, we all lose hair every day—an average of 50 to 100 strands. But with over 100,000 hair follicles on our scalp, the loss of 100 hair strands a day doesn’t make much difference in appearance. However, when those numbers increase, our hair begins to thin. There are several reasons this can happen, such as aging, heredity, stress, and certain health conditions. 

When you’re experiencing thinning hair, balding, or a receding hairline, it can have a major impact on your appearance and self-confidence. At Austin Cosmetic Medspa, we offer an advanced treatment called PRP therapy that can help you stave off premature hair loss.

What Is PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy is a treatment that has been used by professional athletes for many years to help speed up the healing process after surgery or injury. Platelet-rich plasma is plasma from the blood containing a high concentration of platelets, which are rich in growth factors and healing mechanisms.

Growth factors are the messengers in the body, signaling cells to perform various functions. That’s why platelets are so important for wound healing, as they initiate new tissue growth. By putting the healing power of PRP to work in the scalp, the growth factors help to activate hair follicles that have begun to spend more and more time resting. This allows these follicles to produce thick, healthy hair.

During the PRP hair restoration therapy treatment, platelet-rich plasma is extracted from the patient’s own blood before being injected directly into the scalp. Then, over time, it encourages the hair follicles to spend more time in the growth phase of the hair lifecycle. It also helps follicles that have recently moved into dormancy return to active growth.

Benefits of PRP Hair Restoration Therapy

PRP hair restoration therapy is a unique treatment that offers all of the following benefits:

  • Increases hair growth from dormant follicles
  • A thicker, more luscious head of hair
  • Reduction of thinning, balding, or receding hair
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Improves self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Improves mental health
  • Little to no recovery time

The PRP Hair Restoration Therapy Treatment Process

The PRP hair restoration therapy treatment process is relatively simple. To begin, your provider will draw blood from your arm. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate out the red blood cells and concentrate the platelets and growth factors. Then, after applying a nerve block to the targeted treatment area to prevent discomfort, one of our hair restoration experts will inject the PRP into your scalp in the areas where you’re looking to boost hair growth.

After the treatment, you’ll be able to head home immediately, and you should have no problem resuming your normal routine right away. Patients typically do not require any recovery time after PRP hair restoration therapy.

Who Is a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration Therapy?

Adults who are experiencing any form of premature hair loss could be good candidates for PRP hair restoration therapy. The treatment can be an effective option for individuals dealing with thinning hair, balding, and hairline recession. Typically, starting the treatment while you’re still early in the hair loss process will yield the best results.

To be an ideal candidate for PRP hair restoration therapy, you should also be in generally good health, have realistic expectations, and have a regular platelet count in your blood.
