Hair loss affects millions of men and women a year and can cause self-consciousness and avoidance behaviors. At Empowerment Med Spa, our platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, hair restoration treatments can target hair loss at the source and stimulate the regrowth of your natural hair for a thicker, fuller scalp without uncomfortable grafting or other surgical procedures.
Serving the Bryan and College Station areas in Texas, Empowerment Med is led by Dr. Chloe Ntaimo. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how our PRP hair restoration treatments can help improve your hair loss using your skin’s natural healing process.
What is PRP?
At Empowerment Med, we utilize the benefits of PRP in multiple treatments, including micro-needling and hair restoration. PRP is created from a sample of your own blood that is spun through a sterile centrifuge process, infusing the liquid portion of the blood with more platelets than normal. Platelets contain growth factors that can help generate new cells and tissues under the skin.
How is PRP Used for Hair Restoration?
This treatment combines the benefits of micro-needling and PRP in order to stimulate natural hair growth in a multi-step process:
- A micro-needling tool is slowly moved over the scalp to exfoliate the skin and increase its absorption ability
- The PRP is then applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep below the surface
- Once inside of the skin, PRP stimulates inactive hair follicles to produce hair, resulting in your own natural hair growth to gradually increase thickness, volume, and length.
Hair grows in three different cycles, and it may take multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve your desired results. Results may vary, but Dr. Ntaimo will create a treatment plan that addresses your individual condition.
Is PRP Safe for Hair Restoration?
Long-term studies of PRP are on-going, but this comprehensive therapy has shown positive results for natural, lasting hair growth without surgical intervention. As with all micro-needling treatments, the skin may have a flushed or pink appearance afterward, which should heal within a few days. As PRP utilizes your body’s own resources, it is completely biocompatible and is easily recognized and processed after being applied during treatment. Most patients are able to return immediately to normal activities, and major complications are rare. Doctor Ntaimo will share all other relevant safety information with you prior to treatment.
