Thinning hair can be restored to a more lustrous, full state with cellular therapies offered at Laser MD Cosmetics. Dennis L. Clark, MD, helps men and women in Long Beach, California, combat hair loss with platelet-rich plasma therapy. Call the office or book online to learn how this process can naturally encourage hair growth and halt further hair loss.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, uses your own blood to create a revolutionary healing product. Dr. Clark takes a small sample of blood from your arm and spins the blood down in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelet count. Platelets contain a large number of growth factors, so this resulting PRP has healing capabilities that can address joint pain, skin health, and hair loss.
When injected into precise places on your scalp, which are determined by Dr. Clark according to your hair loss pattern, the growth factors in PRP stimulate the hair follicles to regrow hair. Anyone with thinning hair can benefit from PRP hair restoration therapy, but the procedure is especially helpful to those with early hair loss or androgenic alopecia.
You notice decreased shedding and improvement in hair texture and thickness within two weeks of treatment. New hair may also begin to grow. You’ll need to wait 3-6 months following the first treatment to get substantial results and more lustrous locks.
Hair restoration with PRP requires multiple treatments. Dr. Clark usually recommends a series of three over the course of 4-6 months. You’ll receive a customized treatment plan depending on the extent of your hair loss and how your hair follicles respond to treatment.
You will notice improved hair texture and volume for 18-24 months. But regular treatments one time per year can help you maintain your look.
Research has demonstrated that PRP therapy can successfully restore hair. Plus, the treatment is entirely natural and requires no drugs. The PRP is derived from your own blood, so you don’t have to worry about your body rejecting the compound. And PRP hair restoration therapy doesn’t require the incisions and long recovery of hair transplants.
