PRP hair restoration is a minimally invasive treatment used to prevent hair loss. It helps patients improve hair growth, treating baldness and thinning hair. Patients looking for PRP hair restoration in Louisville come to the office of Joseph Banis, MD, for their hair loss problems.
What Is PRP Hair Restoration?
Hair loss can occur in both men and women. It comes in many forms, including a widening part, a receding hairline, a bald spot, and generalized thinning. The causes of hair loss vary—genetics, medical problems, and external factors can all contribute. Regardless of the cause, hair loss can result in feelings of embarrassment and shame.
PRP hair restoration is an excellent solution for hair loss. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a solution created using a patient’s blood sample and is rich in platelets and plasma. This solution is very effective in promoting hair growth and stopping hair loss.
How Does It Work?
The PRP solution contains growth factors, which stimulate and nourish the hair follicles. As a result, hair growth is enhanced, resulting in improved fullness and health.
Benefits of PRP Treatment
There are several benefits of PRP hair restoration treatment. It is easy, safe, and affordable. Because it uses the patient’s own blood, the risk of allergic reactions is incredibly low. There is no downtime after a treatment session, and the patient can see noticeable results within 60 to 90 days.
Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?
Both men and women suffering from male- and female-pattern baldness are good candidates for PRP hair restoration. Candidates must still have some hair left on their scalp. Candidates should have an average amount of platelets and no blood-related medical conditions.
Patients willing to commit to a complete treatment plan with the recommended number of sessions are ideal candidates for PRP hair restoration.
Your consultation will start with a discussion of your goals and an evaluation of your scalp. We will identify your hair loss symptoms and determine the exact cause. Once we assess that you are a good candidate for PRP hair restoration, we will devise a treatment plan. Each detail of the plan will be discussed with you, and we will address any questions you may raise during the consultation.
Your PRP Hair Restoration Session
Each session will last between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the treatment plan. The first step is to draw blood from the patient. The blood is processed and turned into a platelet-rich plasma. The PRP solution will then be injected into key areas of the scalp according to the treatment plan.
The patient can go home right after treatment. There is no downtime or recovery needed. The patient may experience minor symptoms such as minimal tenderness and mild swelling in the injection sites for the first few days.
Aftercare instructions will be given to the patient. The instructions will include not using hair products for the first day, avoiding sun and heat exposure, and not doing physical exercise for at least two days.
The next session will be scheduled around four weeks after the first treatment. The patient may need at least four treatments to achieve ideal results.
How Much Does PRP Hair Restoration Cost?
The price of PRP hair restoration will depend on the details of the treatment plan. The number of sessions will also be considered when determining the total cost of the procedure.
