Grow Back Your Healthy Hair with the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy in Nevada
For the last twenty years, the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy has been proven effective on different surgical procedures and received positive results. For hair restoration, PRP Therapy also shows promising outcomes because evidence supports it in stimulating hair growth.
While the PRP Therapy is still in the early phase of scientific research, it cannot be used as a replacement for therapies approved by the FDA. However, studies shows its potential in helping patients with hair loss.
PRP Therapyâs Potential
In PRP Therapy, platelets play a big role in restoring abnormal hair follicles that produce weak hair strands. PRP provides growth factors to the affected area of the scalp to initiate cell growth and tissue regeneration. If used to combine with hair transplant, the PRP Therapy helps in increasing the rate of healing on the treated area. It will also provide growth factors that will speed up the activation of the transplanted hair follicles.
Preforming the PRP Therapy
At the Stem Cell Hair Clinic, Dr. Steve Latham performs the PRP Therapy by making the treatment plan first. The procedure starts by isolating platelets from the patientâs blood through centrifuge, which will be injected on the affected part of the scalp. Dr. Latham applies anesthesia before injecting the PRP and might prescribe other medications for hair loss.
Results of the PRP Therapy
Previous PRP Therapies had patients with positive response to the therapy. Existing medical literature also presents positive results. At the Stem Cell Hair Clinic, patients of Dr. Latham gave positive feedbacks and they recommend PRP Therapy for those who experience hair thinning. Dr. Latham also endorse the PRP Therapy as a supplementary treatment to hair restoration surgeries because it will speed up recovery and activation of the implanted hair follicles.
Here at Stem Cell Hair Clinic, Dr. Latham often recommends PRP Therapy for patients who have mild hair loss and he always tells them if the PRP Therapy will not work alone. For other patients, he recommends it along with other hair loss medications like Minoxidil and DHT blockers.
The PRP Therapy is best for patients who are not qualified or ready for surgery, and to those who have very low tolerance or have side effects using other hair restoration medications. To know which treatment plan is best for you, contact us here at Stem Cell Hair Clinic or visit our website.
