Both men and women may experience occasional hair loss. However, if you notice that you have excessive shedding, it may indicate a serious issue. Many people choose platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to slow down or halt hair loss. This non-surgical alternative counteracts hair loss caused by numerous health conditions.
Have you found the answer to your hair loss problems? We welcome you to come to Reflections Med Spa in Chicago for a free consultation to learn more about PRP hair restoration.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Doctors sometimes have a difficult time pinpointing why people experience hair loss. This can be particularly difficult for women, who often equate personal beauty with the condition of their hair.
Hair loss is also called alopecia, and you may notice thin spots on your scalp during beginning or late-stage hair loss. Whether you have patchy bald spots or a receding hairline, PRP hair restoration may help you regain thickness and reduce future hair loss.
Factors add impact hair loss include:
What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
Here’s a broad overview of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for alopecia:
A medical professional collects blood from your arm.
They process the sample in a centrifuge to separate various components.
Next, they used a syringe to collect platelets.
A clinician injects platelets into areas of the scalp impacted by hair loss.
You can complete your PRP treatment in under an hour. However, you may need to return for multiple sessions, depending on your particular circumstances. There's no downtime following the treatment and you can return to your daily activities as soon as you leave our Chicago med spa.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Because PRP does not address underlying causes for hair loss, clients typically return for additional treatments to maintain their results.
Your doctor will give you a time frame for your maintenance injections, but many patients come back for treatment once every three to six months.
Are There Any Side Effects?
There are a few side effects that some clients report such as scalp tenderness, mild pain at the injection site and a slight headache following PRP hair restoration. Since PRP uses your own blood, there’s little chance of having a reaction to the solution. Other side effects include itching, swelling and temporary bleeding at the injection site.
