How Do I Know if PRP Hair Restoration is Right for Me?
If you are a man or woman with thinning hair or a man who is suffering from androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness), then PRP hair restoration could be a great solution for you. One of the main factors to consider in order to understand if you are a good candidate for PRP hair restoration is, do you still have hair follicles present? The PRP hair restoration treatment is not suitable for everyone since it works on strengthening the follicles that are still active. If you have already lost your hair, or have significant bald patterns on your scalp, this treatment is not for you. If you still have hair present and you see that it is starting to thin, you should consider undergoing this treatment.
How is the PRP Hair Restoration Procedure Performed?
The PRP hair restoration procedure is performed in our office, under local anesthesia by Dr. Frank Troha, Dr. Thaddeus P. O’Neill, or physician assistant, Nichole R. Gill. To perform PRP hair restoration, the doctors will use a thin needle to draw your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and use your body’s own blood to inject into the scalp. The growth factors in your blood cells – mainly the Platelets – do their job, and hair growth is naturally stimulated.
How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?
PRP therapy stands for platelet rich plasma therapy and treatment is fairly straightforward and effective. The doctors at Miami Valley Plastic Surgery will use blood that has been drawn from the patient for the procedure. The blood is placed in a centrifuge in order to separate the blood cells (which carry oxygen, fight diseases, and infections) from the plasma (which contains water and numerous nutrients) and the platelets (which repairs damage and injuries). Platelets are known for their growth factors. These platelets can stimulate the new follicles and activate growth, creating a thicker, fuller head of hair and reducing the thinning process. During your consultation, Dr. Troha, Dr. O’Neill or Nichole Gill PA-C, will discuss your unique treatment schedule and inform you of what to expect after the procedure is completed.
How Long is the Recovery Time for a PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration for hair loss is a great, non-surgical option for stimulating hair regrowth. Most people can continue their daily activities immediately following the PRP hair restoration treatment. It is important to note that you may not see immediate results. Results will take several weeks to months to appear due to the time it will take for your body to stimulate growth.
Is PRP Hair Restoration Safe?
PRP Hair Restoration is suitable for both men and women who are suffering from thinning hair. It is a state-of-the-art, non-surgical, natural, medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning. It is an injectable treatment which uses the patient’s own blood. PRP therapy has been used since 1987 for a variety of other treatments. There have not been severe issues, or side effects reported. However, some minor issues could occur, such as infection, pain, or tissue damage. Discuss your concerns with Dr. Frank V. Troha, Dr. Thaddeus P. O’Neill, and Nichole R. Gill PA-C; we are always happy to answer any questions and make sure that you are comfortable with your treatment plan.
How Much Does PRP Hair Restoration Treatment Cost?
Because every person is different, we will not be able to discuss the exact cost with you until after your consultation. Cash, personal checks, and credit cards are always accepted for any of the procedures we offer, and many of our patients will also qualify for low-interest financing.
