PRP Hair Restoration: A Noninvasive, Non-surgical Solution for Hair Loss
We often think of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots when we consider some of the more unappealing parts of aging. However, many of us forget that hair loss can come alongside this process too. For many people, hair loss can be an incredibly embarrassing and frustrating thing to experience as you age.
Until recently, many hair restoration procedures have been invasive, surgical, and even painful procedures. However, PRP Hair Restoration Treatment offers an alternative to surgical hair transplants. It’s a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure. And the best news? You can get PRP Hair Restoration right here in Draper, Utah, at La Belle Vie Medical Care & Aesthetics.
What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP (also known as platelet-rich plasma) Hair Restoration is a kind of therapy where, after drawing your blood and placing it into a centrifuge, platelet-rich plasma is injected into the scalp to promote natural hair growth.
Scientists have discovered that the human body can often heal itself. And PRP is currently used often in sports medicine to heal injured ligaments, muscles, and tendons. And it is used in cosmetic enhancement because of its rejuvenating effects. Essentially, PRP stimulates the body’s own natural healing process.
One of the great things about PRP Hair Restoration is that everything used in the procedure is all-natural; there are no potentially dangerous chemical injections. The plasma used in PRP Hair Restoration comes directly from your blood.
Who Is A Good Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP Hair Restoration works best on those who have recent hair loss. The ideal candidate is someone who is experiencing androgenetic alopecia, which is what causes your hair to thin and fall out when you get older. This condition affects both men and women.
If you are entirely bald or you have another medical condition that causes you to lose hair, such as lupus or a thyroid condition, PRP Hair Restoration will not work for you. Additionally, PRP Hair Restoration will not be as effective if you take blood thinners.
What Should I Expect During a Hair Restoration Treatment?
When you get to our medical spa in draper, a clinician from our team will first run through the treatment with you, explain any aftercare and side effects, and tell you how the procedure will take.
Your blood will be drawn and placed into a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. Then, this plasma is injected into your scalp at the hair follicle. The injections are concentrated in the areas that need the most hair growth, promoting your hair follicles’ natural growth process.
Our medical professionals at La Belle Vie are incredibly well-trained at being gentle, so you likely will not feel much pain during the procedure. Additionally, a topical anesthetic will be applied.
The process is relatively quick in terms of each treatment, consisting of three parts (blood being drawn, blood going in the centrifuge, and the injections). Your blood only needs to stay in the centrifuge for 10 minutes, so your treatments should not take very long in our office.
What Should I Expect After a Hair Restoration Treatment?
After the treatment, you will likely feel some pressure or tension at the injection site, so it is essential that you treat the area with care and try not to touch it more than necessary. This pressure should absolve after a day or two. Other than that, there are virtually no side effects to PRP Hair Restoration, and you should be able to return to normal activities immediately.
How Much Does PRP Hair Restoration Cost?
At La Belle Vie, we strive to make procedures affordable for our clients. Your total cost will depend on how many treatments you need and the surface area you need to have injected with the plasma.
Especially when considering surgical, invasive hair restoration procedures, PRP Hair Restoration is an incredible value for the procedure’s price, comfort, and consistency. PRP Hair Restoration treatments at La Belle Vie are $1900 for the initial treatment, which also includes your first follow-up treatment. After that, additional treatments are just $900.
Like all of our state-of-the-art treatments, we offer financing. And we have frequent specials that may reduce your costs on occasion. Plus, we offer a unique membership program that helps our clients budget for their aesthetic procedures.
How Long Does PRP Hair Restoration Take?
For most patients who want to undergo PRP Hair Restoration therapy, it takes around three treatments to see complete results. Each treatment should be done four to six weeks apart, while maintenance treatments can be done every four to six months.
Is PRP Hair Restoration Safe?
Choosing PRP Hair Restoration is a safe and all-natural alternative to traditional hair restoration treatments. Since the plasma going into your scalp comes from your own body, you don’t need to worry about the risk of unnatural chemicals or infectious diseases. The procedure is straightforward, with very few risks.
Are There Side Effects to PRP Hair Restoration?
As with any medical procedure, there are possible side effects to PRP Hair Restoration. Side effects include:
- Injury to blood vessels or nerves
- Infection or calcification at the injection site
- Scar tissue
Although this is relatively rare, you could also have an adverse reaction to the topical anesthetic used in the procedure. Therefore, you should always consult with your doctor regarding any medications you take, conditions you have, or other concerns before your procedure.
Will Hair Restoration Make Me Feel More Confident?
No matter your gender, hair loss can be a huge confidence killer for anyone as they age. Of course, the aging process affects everyone differently, but losing your hair’s natural volume or texture can be devastating.
Luckily, to rejuvenate your hair follicles, you don’t need to go under the knife to endure an expensive surgical procedure. Instead, PRP Hair Restoration can help you regain your confidence using only the plasma from your own blood.
If you have ever felt insecure about your thinning hair, it could be worth looking into PRP Hair Restoration. Not only will it make you feel more confident, but it will also bring back the youthful energy that your hair has been craving.
