It is not easy growing older. Along with a slower metabolism, thinner skin, age spots, and wrinkles, many men and women experience thinning hair and a receding hairline with aging.

If you are losing your hair or it is starting to thin, modern technology offers minimally-invasive solutions. Dr. Georges Kaado performs hair restoration techniques to help you regrow your hair without surgery, such as our prp hair restoration in Virginia Beach.

Hair Restoration with PRP

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has many uses in modern medicine. In addition to treating arthritic joints, it provides an exciting treatment option for non-surgical hair restoration in both women and men.

What Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is plasma (the liquid part of the blood) containing higher-than-normal concentrations of platelets. Platelets are special cells that cause clotting and release growth factors – substances required for stimulation of growth in living cells.

To obtain PRP for a hair restoration procedure, we draw a small amount of your blood and spin in a centrifuge to separate platelet rich plasma from the red and white blood cells and other components. Platelets contained in PRP promote healing and regeneration of skin, hair, and tissues.

How Is Hair Restoration with PRP Performed?

To perform our Virginia Beach PRP hair restoration, Dr. Kaado injects PRP extracted from your own blood directly into the scalp at the hair follicle level. This is a meticulous process, with injections at approximately every half inch across the scalp in the area of thinning hair. The procedure usually takes less than 60 minutes to perform.

What to Expect During Your PRP Treatment

The process starts by drawing blood. It is put in the processor to separate the PRP, which takes about 15 minutes. During this time, the scalp is numbed with both topical creams as well as injections. When numb, the scalp is injected with the vitamin and mineral mixture as well as with the ACell solution. The PRP injection is then performed. The final process is using the Dermapen microneedling device to create very fine holes in the scalp.

A by-product of the PRP system is “PPP” which is platelet poor plasma. PPP has growth factors, but to a lesser degree than PRP. This solution is spread on top of the scalp and will be left there overnight. Washing the hair can be done the following morning. Sometimes extra PPP will be given to the patient to apply to the scalp at home. A second treatment (for men) is scheduled at 2-3 months.

Who Is a Good Candidate Hair Restoration with PRP?

Any man or woman experiencing hair loss or thinning is potentially a good candidate for hair restoration with PRP. Patients in the early stages of hair loss tend to respond best to this hair restoration therapy. Women and men with androgenic alopecia – genetically determined hair loss occurring along the top of the head – may be good candidates for hair restoration with PRP.

What Can I Expect with PRP Hair Restoration Treatment?

PRP for hair restoration is a minimally-invasive treatment with no real risk, minimal discomfort, and little or no downtime. Most patients have injections with no need to numb the scalp, as discomfort is minimal.

Tylenol can be taken to control any discomfort you may experience after the procedure. You may have bruising at the injection sites after PRP treatment, which usually resolves within one or two weeks. A warm shower after the procedure can increase blood flow and circulation in the scalp.

How Many Treatments Does It Take for Hair Restoration with PRP?

For best results with PRP hair restoration, you will need a series of treatments. We usually recommend one treatment per month for three to four months, followed by a treatment every three to six months thereafter. Frequency of treatment will depend on your response and results. Topical treatment such as Rogaine or Propecia should be continued.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect with PRP Hair Restoration?

Consistency in treatment is a key factor in achieving optimal results with PRP hair restoration. If you follow the recommended protocol, you may see initial results within two to three months. Most patients notice less shedding, followed by regrowth and increased hair length.

What Are the Benefits of Hair Restoration with PRP?

Thinning hair can compromise a person’s appearance and affect confidence and self-esteem. PRP hair restoration is an all-natural treatment with several important benefits:

 

Safety

This treatment uses platelet rich plasma taken from the patient’s own blood with no risk of rejection or allergic reaction.

Convenience

PRP hair restoration is a quick, minimally-invasive procedure with little or no recovery or downtime.

Effective treatment

In a study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), researchers found that PRP hair restoration therapy can promote stronger hair follicles and hair growth. Our patients usually begin to notice results in approximately three months after treatment, although final results may not be visible for approximately one year.

Achieving optimal results

PRP hair restoration may require consistent treatment over a period of months or years. Once your hair begins to grow back in, it can dramatically improve your appearance and increase your confidence in how you appear to others. Consult with Dr. Georges Kaado in Virginia Beach, VA to find out if you are a good candidate for hair restoration therapy with PRP.
