Hair Restoration 101: Is PRP Right for You?

PRP for hair loss Are you experiencing hair loss? PRP for hair loss might be the solution you’ve been looking for. This innovative treatment uses your own blood’s platelet-rich plasma to nourish hair follicles and promote healthy, consistent growth. Regardless of gender, balding and thinning hair can be a common concern as you age. Alopecia can also be triggered by genetic factors, and even some patients in their 20s and 30s are struggling with thinning hair.

While surgical hair restoration exists, many prefer to explore less invasive choices first. PRP hair restoration offers a safe, effective method for tackling hair loss and regaining confidence. Discover more about this transformative treatment at our med spa in Lake Oswego, OR.

What Is Platlet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP is plasma filled with rich platelets that have been taken from your own blood. After drawing a quick sample, your blood is spun and purified in a device called a centrifuge. Then, plasma is transferred to another tube and spun again to create a platelet-rich concentrate. A licensed provider then injects the PRP into the treatment site. At our med spa, we use microneedling technology to administer PRP below the epidermis — roughly 2 to 3 mm below the superficial level of your skin.

How PRP for Hair Loss Works

PRP for hair loss works by injecting your platelet-rich plasma into areas of the scalp affected by hair loss; this encourages natural regrowth and hair follicle rejuvenation. The platelets in the PRP activate special molecules called growth factors. These growth factors play a crucial role in improving blood supply to the follicles and strengthening the hair shaft, leading to healthier, thicker hair.

Many patients who undergo PRP hair restoration notice natural regrowth and greater fullness. This is without the use of medication or transplants. The microneedling application also increases circulation to the treatment sites; due to the invisible micro-injuries the needle creates, your body provides more nutrient-rich blood to the treatment sites as a healing response. The additional collagen production as part of the healing process also encourages regrowth.

Our medspa has seen great hair restoration results from PRP injections, however, it is an off-label use not approved by the FDA.

A Safe and Easy Hair Loss Treatment

Treating hair loss is difficult emotionally, but it doesn’t have to be difficult physically. Rather than cope with incisions and sutures, patients can explore non-surgical PRP for hair loss. Our experts are here to help you find a long-lasting solution so you can feel confident in your skin.
