As recently featured on ABC news (Oct 2015), PRP injections for hair growth is offered as part of our hair restoration program at Signature Wellness in Charlotte.
Your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into your scalp. The growth factors in your blood cells naturally stimulate hair growth. The application of PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. PRP Hair Restoration is suitable for both men and women.
A PRP treatment takes about 90 minutes to complete. First, your blood is drawn and then specially processed to produce the PRP. A local anesthetic is then administered to completely numb the scalp treatment area. The PRP is then administered via a series of injections in the required areas of the scalp or in areas such as the eyebrows or beard.
New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.
Reports seem to suggest that a patient’s hair growth responds best to an initial series of 3-4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Further recommendations can then be tailored depending on the individual patient response about 5 months later.
Laser Therapy in addition to PRP therapy can enhance the outcome.
