Stop or Reverse Hair Loss

Hair loss is a major concern for many patients, whether it’s caused by age, genetics, hormones, medical conditions, or years of over-styling. With recent advances in research in the hair restoration field, new treatments have been created to help combat the problem. Fortunately, PRP hair restoration is a safe, fast, and effective way to halt or reverse the effects of hair loss. Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery is home to a number of experienced medical professionals who can provide this treatment for patients who would like to improve the appearance of their hair. 

The Science of PRP Hair Restoration 

Our blood contains plasma that has lots of growth factors. These growth factors are responsible for stimulating the growth of cells, repairing tissue, and healing cuts and scrapes when we are injured. 

When hair follicle growth slows down or becomes inactive completely, a series of PRP injections to the scalp can achieve great results.

This is because those growth factors increase blood flow, which triggers “sleeping” hair follicles to begin an active growth phase. For many, this process results in healthy hair that is fuller and thicker. It is essential to remember that PRP does not grow new hair follicles in places where you are already bald; rather, it is used to reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will produce healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.

How is a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment Done?

A minimally invasive procedure, PRP therapy is a quick, 60-minute in-office visit. The session begins with drawing a small amount of your blood and placing it in a special machine that circulates the blood at high speed to separate the platelets from the remainder of the blood components. This creates the powerful growth factor serum that will stimulate hair growth. While the serum is being prepared, a numbing cream will be applied to your scalp to keep you comfortable during the PRP injections. This should minimize your discomfort during the procedure, but talk to us if you have any concerns or pain. (Your scalp may remain numb or tingle for a while after your PRP injections, but this is temporary, and normal sensation should return shortly.)

Once the local anesthetic has been used on your scalp, the concentrated platelet-rich plasma is re-introduced into the parts of your scalp that are thinning or bald. Finally, microneedling is performed on the scalp to create micro-channels into the skin. This activates the PRP and enables it to penetrate deep into the dermis. Our protocol for non-surgical management of hair loss includes an initial treatment and then maintenance treatments about every nine months to one year.

Recovery

There is no downtime following a PRP hair restoration procedure, and practically no limitations or restrictions. If anything, patients may develop some redness, minimal swelling, and mild tenderness to the treated areas. These symptoms might last up to 48 hours.

Results

While PRP hair restoration results will be different for each patient, the outcome is commonly seen around 4-6 months after the first treatment and may continue to improve up to a full year following treatment. As PRP is not a permanent option for hair loss, repeat treatments are highly recommended every 12-18 months. 

The outcome of your PRP hair restoration therapy will depend on the severity of your hair loss, how many treatments you get, and other factors. You should also remember to be patient with your results, as it takes time for new hair growth to become visible after the PRP stimulates the process. You may need to continue to get PRP therapy to maintain your results and limit future hair loss.

FAQ

Can PRP be combined with other hair treatments?

How often should I get PRP treatments?

Can PRP be combined with other hair treatments?

Many patients combine other treatments with PRP hair restoration treatments, including topical medication applied at home, microneedling, and more. We will assess your scalp and level of hair loss before creating your custom PRP therapy treatment plan. We will also discuss our recommendations for what in-office treatments are best for your hair loss, as well as any home products that might help between appointments.

How often should I get PRP treatments?

Most patients need at least three PRP treatments performed one month apart to see results. Your specific PRP hair restoration therapy program will depend on the degree of hair loss and your goals. Based on this, we can recommend how many PRP treatments you will need and how often you should schedule them to stimulate your hair growth. If your condition is more advanced, we may recommend more treatment initially, which can be performed less frequently once you begin to see results.

Is PRP Hair Restoration an Option for Me?

Any individual suffering from hair loss is essentially an excellent candidate for PRP hair restoration therapy, but those with early hair loss typically yield the most favorable results. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair thinning that mostly occurs along the top of the head. In women, this can look like a widening hair part, with regular hair thickness at the back of the head. Patients with hair parts of “weak quality” hair growth on the scalp — with still-functioning hair follicles — have the greatest results with PRP hair regrowth treatments. During your consultation, we will discuss if you are a good candidate and what results you can realistically expect. If you’re in the Jacksonville, Fernandina Beach, or Ponte Vedra Beach, FL area and you want to discover what PRP hair restoration can do for you, contact our office.
