What Makes PRP Therapy So Effective for Treating Hair Loss?

Is your brush or comb accumulating way too much hair? Does your shower or tub drain collect enough shed hair to cause frequent clogs? You might be understandably worried if your once-full head of hair is thinning rapidly and balding is setting in. You may want to inquire about our proven hair loss treatment designed to boost confidence with a healthy head of hair.

If hair loss has you concerned about your appearance, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can help. PRP therapy stimulates new hair growth and enhances hair thickness. This minimally invasive treatment addresses hair loss at the root, delivering long-term results that improve over time.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Montante of Montante Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics can evaluate hair loss concerns to determine if PRP therapy can help.

Hair Loss Causes

There are many reasons for thinning hair or hair loss. They can be prevalent on your scalp or the entire body due to heredity or the natural aging process. Other factors that affect hair health and growth include:

  • Hormone changes
  • Underlying medical conditions
  • Some medications

While various hair loss options exist, like wearing wigs or toupees, there are more efficient ways to address its underlying cause, including PRP therapy.

How PRP Therapy Promotes Hair Growth

Platelet-rich plasma is an all-natural treatment derived from your blood. The solution contains 17 different growth factors to stimulate newer, healthier cells to replace older, damaged ones.

When used to treat hair loss, PRP therapy targets dormant hair cells, reenergizing them to trigger new hair growth. Dr. Montante creates a tailored treatment process to inject PRP into specific scalp areas to attain your desired results.

What Does PRP Treatment for Hair Loss Entail?

The PRP stems from your blood. After a simple blood draw, Dr. Montante puts the blood into a unique tube containing an element to activate growth factors. A centrifuge separates functional platelets from your blood to prepare them for injection into the scalp.

Dr. Montante injects the resulting platelet-rich plasma, containing a high concentration of growth factors, into targeted sites on your scalp. During the procedure, a Zimmer chiller will blow cold air on the scalp to aid in these injections’ comfort.

If you’re looking to improve your hair’s health and appearance without the fuss or bother of invasive surgery, you may want to consider the benefits of PRP hair loss therapy. To learn more, book an appointment online with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Montante, or call 804-325-4795.
