What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, a compound that is created through the centrifuging of human blood. Blood is primarily comprised of plasma, which is the liquid component many of us are most familiar with. However, blood also contains red and white blood cells and platelets. PRP refers to the substance that is created by separating platelets from the blood cells and then recombining them with the remaining plasma. PRP is created from each patient’s own blood, making it a safe procedure for everyone who receives the injections.
How does PRP work?
The platelets in PRP have a high concentration of human growth factors, which is why it is believed to have such positive benefits for patients suffering from a range of conditions, including hair loss and joint pain. PRP helps support and stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities, which speeds recovery in patients who have had surgery, and can help regrow hair and rejuvenate facial appearance.
Does PRP therapy hurt?
Because PRP does require drawing blood from your arm and then injecting the PRP into the scalp, it is not a totally pain-free treatment. It is important to take into consideration your own level of pain tolerance when deciding whether PRP for hair regrowth is the right treatment option for you. Because PRP uses your own blood, there is no risk of you contracting a communicable disease from the PRP itself. However, when the skin is being penetrated by a needle, there is always a small risk of blood vessel injury, infection, or scarring. At StatMed Urgent Care, our doctors and staff have a wide breadth of experience, ensuring you receive treatment from a professional who can reduce your risk of any adverse side effects by virtue of their knowledge and skill.
What kind of results can I expect?
As with any rejuvenating treatment, the result of PRP injections for hair regrowth will vary by individual. Every patient’s body is unique, and so is their reaction to PRP therapy. Often, multiple treatment sessions will be necessary in order to achieve your desired results, and this is something to think about as you discuss PRP therapy with your doctor. Many patients have seen improved thickening of hair and regrowth in previously bald patches on their scalp as the PRP helps stimulate their body’s hair growth, leaving them with natural results that can improve their self-esteem and confidence.
If you are tired of covering up your thinning hair and are ready for a natural-looking solution, PRP injections for hair regrowth may be the right treatment option for you.
