Latest Hair Restoration Advancements
FUE Technology Has Taken the Wold by Storm
Perhaps you know that FUE (follicular unit extraction) technology, has taken the wold by storm. Where long, scalp scars were once the norm in the world of hair transplant surgery, modern FUE has made it possible to revitalize a full head of hair without visible scarring. FUE patients can even wear their hair short after treatment if they wish, as the tiny graft donor spots heal to nearly invisible dots at the back of the head. Hair transplant surgeons are now able to deliver permanent, natural looking results for clients suffering hair loss. New Jersey PRP hair treatments have arrived as one of the latest medical advancements to revolutionize how we achieve hair restoration, and hair transplant surgeons around the world are catching on.
What Is New Jersey’s PRP Hair Treatment All About?
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. This is the serum that remains after separating blood components to extract the plasma and platelets for re-injection. This method has been used in various fields, including sports medicine, for over a decade. It has proven efficacy in fighting inflammation and joint degeneration, so it is also useful for arthritis treatment and to ease chronic pain. In order to boost hair growth, the serum is injected into the scalp, right at the base of the hair root. Here, it stimulates cell growth and encourages the hair to remain longer in the active growth phase of the hair cycle.
PRP contains powerful growth factors and cytokinins that protect cells and grow new ones. Normally, when you’re injured, these helpers rush to the scene to heal and restore tissue. When used to target hair growth, the PRP serum helps generate new growth and boost hairs that are dormant out of dormancy.
The effects have been measured as denser hair growth, thicker and longer hair where treated. Typically, 3-4 treatments are recommended about a month apart for the initial, optimal treatment. After that, twice per year, maintenance applications will help keep results consistent.
