Having thick and beautiful hair can be difficult to maintain as we get older and losing your hair at any age can be distressing. Some of the most common causes of hair loss in men and women include, genetics, lifestyle habits, diet, and medication. Many people facing hair loss resort to medicated solutions and the latest technologies to regrow their hair, but results are not consistent and may not work for everyone.
Now, Board Certified dermatologist Eric Meinhardt at California Dermatology Specialists in Brentwood, Los Angeles, offers PRP for hair loss. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a substance found in the blood which contains a high concentration of growth factors. Growth factors can stimulate the follicles which, in turn, helps the hair grow back stronger and thicker.
At California Dermatology Specialists, we are excited to offer PRP for the treatment of hair loss in both men and women. This innovative, non-surgical treatment can effectively regrow the hair and rejuvenate the scalp through a natural regeneration process.
How Does PRP for Hair Loss Work?
PRP works by increasing the blood supply to dormant follicles. This process helps trigger hair growth. As the follicles become active again, the hair grows back relatively quickly and the hair is noticeably thicker. The PRP injections themselves are very small and most patients find the treatment is easy to tolerate.
We inject PRP directly into the scalp to stimulate hair growth. It’s a simple and relatively painless in-office procedure that has produced impressive results for many of our patients to date.
The treatment begins with a blood draw right in our office. We put the blood into a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the blood cells. Platelet rich plasma can then be drawn into a syringe which is applied to the scalp in areas that are showing signs of balding or premature balding. PRP goes deep into the skin and into the follicle to stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth. There is no downtime involved and no stitches or sutures to worry about. PRP for hair loss supports a natural process of hair regeneration and regrowth which is why the results are so impressive.
