They say that your hair is your crowning glory, but sometimes even the most beautiful crowns need a little polish. If you are longing for the hair of your youth but have experienced all of the negative ways that the aging process has affected your hair growth, we can help. At ShineMD Medspa & Liposuction Center in Houston, TX, we offer PRP Hair Restoration as a way to reclaim your beautiful hair and experience hair growth naturally.
PRP for Hair Restoration
If you have been trying to experience hair growth with at-home methods but have been unsuccessful, we have good news. You can get rid of your hair growth shampoos and infomercial gadgets that claim to make your hair grow because there is an in-office treatment that delivers natural results in just a few sessions, and it’s called PRP Hair Restoration.
What Is It?
You may have heard of PRP in relation to the Vampire Facial, and while this treatment doesn’t involve the use of your blood on your face, it uses the same method to help treat and improve your scalp. PRP Hair Restoration involves the extraction of platelet-rich plasma from your blood to help stimulate hair growth at the scalp and combat thinning hair, as well as pattern baldness.
How Does It Work?
During your treatment, you will undergo a standard blood draw. One of our treatment specialists will draw your blood with a very thin needle. Your blood will then be placed into a vial and spun around in a sterilized machine called a centrifuge. It is the spinning process within the centrifuge that helps separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood and allows it to bond with regenerative properties within your blood.
This platelet-rich plasma is then applied to the scalp to rejuvenate the hair follicles and promote healthy hair growth at a cellular level. Typically, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the scalp in the areas that have hair follicles that need rejuvenation and stimulation. The proteins that exist in the platelet-rich plasma can promote cellular growth, which leads to hair growth.
What Are the Benefits?
There are many benefits associated with this treatment. It is a natural treatment that capitalizes on the healing properties that exist within the human body to restore hair growth to areas that have thinned and even experienced hair loss due to aging, genetics, or other conditions.
It Doesn’t Use Harsh Chemicals
Many different products that claim to promote hair growth use harsh chemicals and substances to do so. The benefit of PRP Hair Restoration is that it doesn’t involve the use of harsh chemicals to get results. There are no toxic ingredients involved; the only ingredient used is your blood. This also makes this a treatment that is available to everyone who wants to undergo treatment since there is no allergy risk.
It Helps Reverse Hair Loss in Men and Women
Hair loss doesn’t only happen to men. Many women begin to lose their hair with the aging process, or as a result of hormone fluctuations that occur with pregnancy and even menopause. Hair thinning and hair loss are common among both men and women for both aging and genetic related reasons and this is a treatment that can help reverse hair loss and restore hair growth in areas of the scalp that you may have thought might never grow hair again.
Until recently, the only effective way to restore hair was to undergo transplant surgery. Now, there is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that works and delivers results. You don’t have to schedule an invasive surgery to get results. You can simply show up as you would for any other cosmetic appointment and leave shortly after. You can drive yourself to and from your appointments and won’t have to alter your schedule in any way.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime associated with this treatment. As soon as your appointment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
If you’ve ever tried to grow your hair, trying to track its progress is like watching paint dry. The best way to track your progress is by taking before and after photos. Taking photos at the same angles each week will help you see your results. Hair growth takes time, but most patients notice a change in their hair within six to eight weeks of their treatment. Multiple treatments will help you get the best results long-term.
How Many Treatments Will I Need to See Results?
The total number of treatments necessary for results varies from person to person based on the state of their hair pre-treatment. Everyone’s hair chemistry is different, so no one treatment plan will be identical. Most people need more than one treatment for the best results, but during your initial consultation, we will develop a customized treatment plan that will help you reach your hair goals and regain the beautiful hair of your youth.
Am I a Candidate?
If you want to increase your hair growth and help restore volume and thickness to your hair, you are most likely a candidate for this treatment. Different patients experience different degrees of hair loss and thinning.
During an initial consultation, we will develop a treatment plan that is best suited for your needs so that you can reach your hair goals. Those who qualify from treatment include:
- Individuals whose baldness or thinning hair is negatively affecting their appearance
- Individuals looking for a non-invasive, non-surgical way to improve their hair growth
- Those who are in good health and don’t have any open wounds or infections in the planned treatment area
