Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) hair loss treatment is one of the most effective solutions to restore hair growth after experiencing hair loss problems. This mildly invasive procedure cannot be rejected because it uses resources from each individual patient. What is the PRP treatment? How long does it last for hair loss? Here is what you need to know and where you can get effective hair loss treatment in Toronto.
What Is PRP Treatment for Hair Loss?
The PRP treatment for hair loss can be used to enhance hair restoration and other cosmetic skin improvements. The procedure works by collecting the patient’s blood in the same manner as a standard blood test. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge where the plasma is extracted. Once this pure plasma, full of platelets, is extracted, a solution is created that is injected into the patient’s scalp. These injections can also be administered to the face or areas that needs treatment.
Over the next few weeks, these platelets will do their amazing work to trigger cell proliferation, speed healing, and stimulates tissue regeneration in the area. Platelets also contain certain growth factors that can help with hair loss treatment.
PRP Results Can Vary from Patient to Patient
Since the PRP formula is created from each patient’s own blood, the results will largely depend on their body’s healing abilities. If your scalp and hair follicles react well to the treatment, the effects may last longer for you then someone else. Every patient’s hair loss condition is unique, which is why your hair restoration results may be different from the next patient. Here are some of the factors that can influence the outcome of your treatment.
Factors That Influence the Outcome
Contraindications to the Procedure
Before booking your PRP treatment for hair loss, you may choose to see your dermatologist to run a series of tests to ensure that you are a good candidate. Your dermatologist may ask about any prescription drugs or supplements you are taking, or if you have any medical conditions. These factors may influence the results.
Your doctor may also ask you about your history to determine the root cause of your hair loss issues. Some of these causes could be the use of harmful hair products, skin infections, or premature aging. Depending on the cause, your doctor may recommend additional products or treatments to the PRP therapy to help you get the best results possible. Always remember that PRP will not address or resolve the root cause of the hair loss.
Supplementing Treatment with Other Options
To get longer lasting results, your dermatologist may also recommend that you combine PRP therapy with other hair loss treatment options. This might include gently massaging your scalp with warm oils to stimulate hair growth. It might also include eating a balanced diet with adequate amounts of proteins, vitamins, and minerals such as iron to nourish the scalp and hair follicles.
Another treatment option includes low level laser therapy that stimulates blood circulation to enhance the effectiveness of PRP therapy. Be sure to speak with your PRP specialist about these options to see if they are right for you. Unless your specialist tells you to try other options, it is best to follow only to their specific instructions.
After your PRP therapy, we recommend not to wash your hair for at least four hours, preferably until the next morning. Also, abstain from smoking and excessive alcohol during the time that your body is recovering and refrain from using any chemical products on your scalp so that the treatment is more effective, and you heal faster. If you do not follow post procedure instructions properly, the treatment may not be as effective for you.
How Long Do PRP Therapy Treatments Last?
As mentioned before, the effectiveness and longevity of your PRP treatment depends solely on your body’s ability to heal and regrow hair. In most cases, doctors recommend that you schedule three to four sessions at intervals of four weeks between. You may also be recommended to schedule a booster session six months after your first treatment. Some people may only need a single treatment every 12 to 24 months to maintain their hair growth results.
If you want to get the most out of your PRP therapy treatments, you should seek ways to take better care of your body and be sure to follow the specific directions of your specialist. Case studies have proven that PRP therapy works, and you can recover your self-esteem and confidence with a fuller head of hair.
