PRP Hair Restoration

PRP Hair Restoration

in Boca Raton, Florida

Men and women of all ages suffer from extensive hair loss, deriving from a multitude of reasons. Thanks to technological and medicinal advancements with platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, patients are now able to stimulate the regrowth of hair. NuWays MD professionals in Boca Raton, Florida use PRP from your own blood and implement it in an innovative hair loss treatment.

Hair Loss Facts

  • Approximately 35 million men in the United States experience hair loss
  • Approximately 21 million women in the United States experience hair loss
  • Men experience a 40 percent hair loss rate starting at age 35
  • Women experience an 80 percent hair loss rate by age 60

These statistics represent how crucial hair restoration treatments are to men and women alike. While most people will experience hair loss as they age, some health conditions and treatments also induce hair loss.

Hair transplants and medications are often utilized to achieve hair regrowth. But thanks to regenerative technology like platelet-rich plasma, medical professionals can use a patient’s own blood to stimulate hair regrowth.  This makes platelet-rich plasma treatments safe, effective, and innovative for hair loss, regardless of the condition.

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

A patient’s blood is centrifuged to obtain the PRP concentrate. PRP hair restoration involves this compound being taken from a patient’s blood and injected into sites where hair loss is prevalent. PRP hair restoration is an innovative and effective way to revive the hair growth process and reverse hair loss.

The NuWays MD Procedure

A physician at NuWays MD in Boca Raton trained to perform PRP hair restoration will treat targeted sites on the scalp with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, before beginning the injection process. A small needle is used to inject PRP into the targeted areas before the area is massaged. This is done to help evenly distribute the PRP under the skin.

Depending on the treatment, a micro-needling procedure and topical PRP might follow the injections. For best results, many patients attend two to three treatments after the first one, with two to three months’ in between treatments.

Why Platelets?

In the human body, platelets, also known as thrombocytes, respond to a blood vessel injury through clotting to stop bleeding. Platelets possess more than 1500 growth factors that stimulate tissue repair.

These biochemical features that contribute to healing play a pivotal role in tissue regeneration. Platelets stimulate many of the fundamental processes involved with healing including proliferation, cellular migration, and angiogenesis. Platelet-rich plasma is also used to treat other conditions such as orthopedic injuries like join damage and ligament injuries.

How Does It Work?

Platelet-rich plasma utilizes platelets and its regenerative properties increase blood supply to the hair follicle, which stimulates natural hair growth.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What Can PRP Hair Restoration Treat?

Using PRP into a hair restoration therapy can be used to treat several hair loss conditions. These include alopecia, lichen planus, some types of lupus, thyroid disease, hair loss from scalp infection, and natural hair loss that comes with age.

Is The Injection Painful?

Patients typically tolerate the injection very well. A local anesthetic, lidocaine, will be placed on the area of treatment so the patient feels as comfortable as possible during the injection. Patients might experience minimal pain, pinpoint bleeding, or redness after the injection has been delivered

Am I A Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration with NuWays MD?

The optimal candidate for PRP hair restoration treatments have started the early stages of hair thinning while possessing viable, functioning hair follicles. Patients in overall good health that have naturally-thinning hair also make ideal candidates with positive results. Also, patients that are smokers have varied results. We advise that patients seeking PRP hair restoration stop or quit smoking before their treatment.

Additionally, those with acute or chronic infections, low platelet count, thyroid disease, hyperfibrinogenemia, metabolic disorder, or platelet dysfunction syndromes might not qualify for treatment.

When Will I See Results?

Hair regrowth time depends on the individual, but most patients notice a difference in their hair just three weeks after their first treatment. Patients commonly see ideal results within three to five months after their first treatment. However, results depend on the viability of the patient’s hair follicles, as well as their overall health. Three treatments, with one month in-between treatments, is recommended for optimum results.

Is PRP Treatment Safe?

PRP therapy is derived from a patient’s own blood, which allows for no chance of hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to the administered injection. PRP treatment is FDA-approved and conducted in a closed, sterile facility to prevent infection. However, like any injection, there is the possibility of an infection developing, and because no foreign bodies are injected into the body, the risk for infection is low.

What Are The Side Effects?

Side effects from PRP hair restoration include possible injury to blood vessels and nerves, calcification of the injection points, the formation of scar tissue, and infection. However, infection is unlikely, as PRP therapy involves the injection of your own blood. This lowers the chance of contracting a communicable disease.

How Long Is The Treatment?

The PRP hair restoration procedure can be completed in under an hour. Depending on the amount of injection sites and intensity of hair loss, patients might benefit from two to three treatments to achieve optimal results.
