Hair Restoration With PRP LA

Who Is a Good Candidate for PRP Therapy Hair Restoration?

 

PRP therapy (also known as platelet-rich plasma therapy) has shown promise for skin rejuvenation – and now it looks like fading hairlines are next. Clinical studies have shown that PRP therapy can help restore hair, making it an excellent option for both men and women who are looking for a non-surgical hair restoration solution.

So how exactly does it work? PRP hair therapy can be broken down into two main steps:

  • Step 1: A small amount of blood (no more than two or three teaspoons) is removed from the patient’s arm. This blood is placed into a centrifuge device and cleaned, which separates the platelets from the rest of the blood. These platelets are added to a special serum that activates its growth factors.
  • Step 2: The platelets are injected into various areas of the scalp, including around the natural hairline and where any thinning hair might be visible.

 

Once the platelets have been applied to the scalp, most patients begin to see hair regrowth within a few months. The hair that grows back is completely yours – that means you can pull it, shower with it, or even swim with it. It won’t fall […]

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Treat Hair Loss?

Have you heard about platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy yet?  If so, you’ve probably heard about it in reference to a facial treatment that’s designed to increase cellular turnover, improve the appearance of skin, and even help take years off of your appearance.

But PRP therapy isn’t just for the face anymore; in fact, one of the most exciting treatments today is PRP hair restoration!

 

Before we dive into how it helps improve the appearance of the hairline, let’s first explore what PRP therapy is. PRP therapy uses the power of your blood’s own growth factors to trigger wound healing processes within the body.  Here’s how it works: Dr. Ahn removes a small amount of blood from the upper arm (much like when you get your blood drawn).  Your blood is placed in a centrifuge, which quickly cleanses and separates growth factors from the blood.  These growth factors are mixed with a special solution that triggers the wound-healing processes vital for rejuvenation.

PRP therapy for hair loss uses these growth factors to rejuvenate hair growth in key areas around the scalp.  Once the solution has been prepared, Dr. Ahn will carefully inject the growth factors into areas where you’re missing hair, such as around the scalp line […]

Is Hair Transplantation Painful?

Are you considering hair transplantation, but worried about pain and discomfort after the surgical procedure?  Your question is definitely a common one.  Many men and women who are interested in hair transplantation – a surgical method that helps restore a patient’s hairline – are concerned that they’ll be sidelined by pain during the recovery process.

Fortunately, most patients do not experience any pain during the hair transplantation procedure.  That’s because local anesthesia is used to ensure that the patient remains comfortable throughout the surgery.

However, it’s worth noting that the recovery process does usually involve some pain and discomfort.  As the general anesthesia wears off, many patients will feel mild pain on the scalp; some will have headaches as a result of the surgery.  Your plastic surgeon will prescribe pain medications for you to help manage your discomfort.  This pain medication can be used the first week after surgery.

Other side effects include having a tender scalp, which may make it difficult for some patients to sleep comfortably or properly groom.  Your plastic surgeon will be able to discuss methods you can use to mitigate any discomfort you may feel during your hair transplantation recovery.

It’s incredibly important to not only find an experienced plastic surgeon, but also […]

Restore Your Hair Naturally with PRP Therapy

Regenerative medicine has been one of the most exciting medical fields in recent history.  Researchers have made multiple discoveries over the years, many of which can have profound implications for clients who want to look and feel younger.  The same can be said for hair loss, as there’s considerable evidence that regenerative medicine can help naturally re-stimulate hair growth.

On the forefront of regenerative hair growth is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy.   Although scientific research is still relatively new in this field, there’s a growing body of evidence that suggests PRP therapy can help clients restore lost hair without requiring the use of hair transplant surgery.

How Does PRP Therapy Work for Hair Loss?

PRP therapy takes advantage of the many fascinating functions that your blood can do.  Not only does your blood carry oxygen to your muscles, but it also provides your body with the healing powers it needs to recover from cuts and wounds.  These platelets are responsible for helping the body rapidly heal after experiencing a wound, as well fighting off infections.

Thanks to the platelet’s ability to reinvigorate growth and stimulate healing, platelets can also be used to stimulate cell growth.  That’s why PRP therapy is such a promising treatment for clients who’ve been experiencing […]
