Have you been noticing more hair in your hairbrush? Hair loss affects nearly 80 million Americans. There are many reasons a person may experience hair loss, including genetics, a reaction to a medication, an autoimmune disease, or damage to the hair follicles.
It is normal to lose around 100 hair strands a day as a part of a regular hair growth cycle. Losing any more than that might be a sign to talk to a doctor. There are treatments, and one of those is platelet-rich plasma therapy for hair loss (PRP).
How Do PRP Hair Treatments Work?
PRP hair treatments are minimally invasive and work by stimulating the body’s natural hair growth process. This treatment is based on the idea that the body has many properties to heal itself if given the right environment.
During the PRP process, doctors make a serum using the patient’s blood components. Human blood contains growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells, and cytokines. Plasma, another element found in human blood, has cells that send signals to the brain to identify an area that needs healing. Doctors separate red and white blood cells and only use the healing components of the blood to make the PRP serum. PRP hair treatments work by injecting this special serum into the scalp and beginning the treatment process as early as possible, which results in hair loss reversal.
Restoring Hair Loss
Two common reasons for hair loss are that the scalp is not getting enough oxygen, or the hair strands are too weak to complete the growth cycle. When a doctor inserts the serum into the scalp, it triggers the body to send healing to the scalp.
PRP treatment facilitates the development of new blood vessels in the scalp bringing in more nutrients and oxygen. PRP therapy users have also reported seeing their hair grow thicker with better texture and color.
Research has also shown PRP therapy increases the number of follicles on the scalp, decreases the amount of hair that falls out or breaks off, and restores volume.
