There’s a completely natural treatment available for men and women- and it really works.
No wonder people are raving about it! In NJ, PRP for hair loss is quickly growing in popularity, and growing hair. If you have questions, we have answers.
1. Why Do NJ Residents Prefer The Ease of PRP for Hair Loss?
Also known as Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, it’sa natural, in-office treatment that requires no stitches, scalpels or downtime. Many people are looking for a safe, easy way to boost their hairgrowth and they’re not yet ready to consider hair transplant surgery. Does this describe you? It’s virtually painless and takes only about 60 minutes to perform. No visible sign of a procedure will remain on your scalp, and you can return to daily activities right away. A few, consecutive sessions will be recommended at first, followed by one or two maintenance treatments per year. Sound easy? We think so too.
2. What Will My Treatment Be Like?
First, a minimal amount of your blood will be drawn, likely from the arm, then spun in a special,handheld centrifuge. This separates your blood into its components, leaving a layer of platelet-rich serum that appears yellow-ish and translucent. That plasma layer is what will be drawn up into a syringe, then injected in a diffused pattern across your scalp, spaced about 1 inch apart. Once all of the product has been administered, it goes to work- and you can too. Patients may feel temporary sensitivity on the scalp for a few hours or nothing at all.
3. What Are The Risks And Considerations?
Thankfully, because PRP doesn’t contain any animal derivatives or drugs, the risk for allergic reaction is virtually eliminated. It is an autologous procedure, meaning the product is taken from your own body, so not only does this reduce the chance of rejection but it eliminates the possibility of disease transmission. To ensure safe processing, handling and injection, seek out a trained, board-certified plastic surgeon.
