Hair Loss Treatment
You may have heard of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. It’s been praised by doctors and patients alike as the miracle cure that harnesses your body’s own natural healing powers to fix everything from soft tissue and joint injuries to arthritis-related pain.
Well, now it’s being used for aesthetic purposes, too. At the family medical practice and aesthetics office of Janaki Kanumilli, MD, we are proud to offer our patients PRP therapy to help combat hair loss in both men and women.
How PRP Therapy Works
Your blood contains platelets that are rich in growth factors (which essentially trigger a healing response within the body). In the course of a normal injury, blood rushes to the site, bringing with it platelets that can promote healing in the area. What PRP therapy does is supercharge this normal bodily function – and direct it to specific areas we want healed.
How PRP Therapy Can Effectively Treat Hair Loss
When you receive PRP therapy for hair loss, we first take a sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge, which effectively separates the platelets from the rest of the blood. We then inject this concentrated source of platelets into precise areas of your scalp. This increases blood supply to hair follicles and can stimulate hair growth in the area.
The benefits of PRP therapy for hair loss may take some time to be seen. You may begin to see results as early as three months after treatment, but it can be a year before you see the full results.
