The Secret to Hair Restoration Is Already in Your Blood

In the United States alone, over 50 million men suffer from male-pattern baldness, and 30 million women from female-pattern baldness. For men 50 and older, more than half will have hair loss issues. There are pills, chemicals, fiber, and sprays to cover it up, but the secret to hair restoration is in your very own blood.

 

Hair loss or thinning hair can be devastating. Your hair is so much a part of who you are, and how you feel about yourself. This is why you’ll do whatever you can to keep it. At Laser MD Cosmetics in Long Beach, California, Dennis L. Clark, MD, offers PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for a variety of treatments, and hair restoration is one of them. 

Healthy hair with your own blood 

The growth factors in PRP promote healthy cell growth, repair blood vessels and wounds, and stimulate new collagen. They also prolong the growing cycle of your hair by stimulating your hair follicles to regrow healthy hair. 

Dr. Clark draws a sample of your blood and places it in a special, high-speed centrifuge. This concentrates the platelets and separates them, making the specialized proteins, or growth factors, even more potent. This highly concentrated serum is added back into your plasma and injected into your scalp.

Dr. Clark determines where he makes the injections by carefully following your hair loss pattern. You’ll notice improved hair thickness and texture within the first two weeks, though it takes 3-6 months to really see noticeable results. We recommend three treatments over 4-6 months, and then an annual boost, though this depends on the extent of your hair loss. The benefits of volume and texture last 18-24 months. 

PRP — A better alternative for hair loss

There may be some slight pain and irritation where the injections were made, but the procedure is mostly painless. Remember that hair transplants involve cutting the scalp and have actual recovery time. And Minoxidil can make your scalp dry and itchy, while Finasteride can cause sexual dysfunction for men. There’s a better way.

The treatment is minimally invasive, done right in the office, and has minor to no side effects.

The proteins found in PRP help your blood to clot and cells to grow. And because the growth factors are 5-10 times stronger than usual, this reduces inflammation and increases the healing process. PRP works on many parts of your body, including your scalp and hair. 

The secret to hair restoration is all-natural and uses your own blood. PRP therapy can heal tissue, ligaments, and even rejuvenate your hair. At Laser MD Cosmetics we also combine PRP with microneedling to treat wrinkles, scars, lines, and many other skin conditions.
