Hair Restoration - PRP Treatments

WHAT IS PRP HAIR RESTORATION?

Regenerative medicine is becoming increasingly popular across a variety of medical disciplines, and for good reason. The ability to harness the healing power of your body at a cellular level and directing those cells to treat chronic pain or rejuvenate your skin is an attractive idea to many people. This same regenerative medicine technology has been utilized successfully in aesthetic medicine for several years in what has become known as the PRP Hair Restoration treatment or PRP scalp injections!

Utilizing a small amount of blood drawn from your arm, Dr. Helen Hsieh then uses a centrifuge to spin the blood and separate the growth factors (healing cells) from the red blood cells and other components that do not contain regenerative materials. These growth factors, known as platelet rich plasma, will then be injected into the scalp strategically into the areas experiencing hair loss. These platelet rich plasma injections help promote hair growth in existing hair follicles as well as dormant hair follicles, leading to a thicker, fuller head of hair!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Does PRP Hair Restoration Hurt?

    Dr. Hsieh offers Pro-Nox to her PRP hair restoration patients which is a natural blend of oxygen and nitrous analgesia which is inhaled by the patient prior to the injections to lessen any discomfort or anxiety. Most patients report that injections only feel like a slight prick following this technique.

  • How fast will I notice the results?

    Each person will respond differently, and some patients experience an improvement in the first four to six weeks. In general, most patients will need three treatments spaced out over three months and will see peak results three months after completing the protocol.

  • Why choose PRP Hair Restoration over other hair loss medications/treatments?

    PRP hair restoration has been proven across many studies to be a safe and effective treatment for hair loss in men and women. Some patients are not comfortable starting a hair loss treatment like Minoxidil where if you ever stop the application of the product, all your hair growth will disappear. Other patients are afraid of the potential side effects of an oral medication like finasteride.

  • Can I combine the PRP Hair Restoration with other treatments?

    Yes! There is no contraindication for utilizing PRP hair restoration as part of a protocol with other hair loss medications (like minoxidil or finasteride) and some patients even choose to have PRP hair restoration done after their surgical hair transplant to speed up the healing process and improve their results! Dr. Hsieh may also recommend other regenerative products like the Amdrop Restore which is another regenerative solution to enhance your results!
