Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is a cutting-edge med spa procedure that can restore hair growth in a minimally invasive manner.
This treatment has a proven record of high potential in hair restoration as it uses the natural growth factors of the body to revitalize damaged hair follicles providing hair re-growth in areas of the scalp that have received the PRP treatment.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by the accomplished board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides PRP injections for hair restoration to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in this region of California.
PRP Hair Restoration
For a long time, researchers believed that hair follicles that stopped producing hair are dead. However, according to recent studies these unproductive follicles are merely damaged, dormant or injured. These follicles can be revitalized to re-grow hair in the long-run. PRP hair restoration treatment can help patients achieve this goal.
The human body contains platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This plasma has powerful growth factors. The medical practitioner will inject these growth factors into the affected sites on the scalp to activate the dead adult stem cells in the hair follicle that is damaged.
At the same time, these growth attributes encourage regeneration of localized cells and create new blood vessels to rejuvenate the hair follicles.
The PRP treatment provider will take a tiny quantity of blood from the patient’s body. They will process this blood in a centrifugal system to separate the PRP and invigorate the growth factors in it. The provider will apply a local anesthetic to the treatment site on the scalp when the PRP is ready to be delivered.
The PRP hair restoration expert will inject it into the areas that are most affected by hair loss. They will inject the PRP via a very fine gauge needle in a matrix pattern. The patient may receive the PRP treatment for hair restoration with a low-level laser to enhance the effectiveness of the outcomes depending on their unique needs.
Innovative Treatment Approaches
PRP med spa therapy results are constantly improving as the hair re-growth approaches with PRP are developing progressively and becoming more advanced. Most commonly, PRP therapy involves only one treatment session.
But some specialists recommend multiple PRP treatment sessions to enhance the efficiency of the treatment. This therapy also helps improve the hair graft survival rate when used before or during a hair transplant.
Various Types of Hair Loss treatable with PRP
PRP for hair restoration offers positive outcomes to patients suffering from hair loss due to multiple health conditions, including:
- Alopecia Totalis
- Alopecia Areata
- Female Pattern Hair Loss
- Male Pattern Hair Loss
- Hair loss due to metabolic conditions, iron deficiency, and medicinal side-effects.
Results with PRP
In a majority of cases, PRP treatment can offer dramatic new hair growth and improvements in the thickness, density, and elasticity of hair. Results of the procedure will be apparent within six to eight weeks of the initial treatment.
The complete outcomes will take up to one year to manifest following the primary treatment. The devoted Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other towns and cities across the horizon for PRP hair restoration.
