PRP – Latest Hair Loss Cure in New Jersey
PRP Stands for Platelet Rich Plasma
This 100% natural therapy has been proven effective for over a decade in sports medicine, arthritis treatment, pain management and more. Known for its ability to promote soft tissue healing and cell regeneration, the plasma injections near swollen joints, for instance, tend to rapidly heal and soothe the inflammatory response. The skin and scalp contain multiple growth factors that regulate natural cellular renewal and maintain a normal hair growth cycle.
The platelets in PRP solutions contain special proteins that help turn cell functions on and off. These growth factors increase the cell growth and turnover rate, improve cell defence, circulation, skin collagen and elastin. When injected into the scalp, New Jersey PRP hair treatments have been found to prolong the growth cycle for hairs so that they stay actively growing, longer, thicker and denser than they normally would. For many people, hair growth slows down as they age.
Just like skin strength and thickness changes, so the hairs on their head become thinner and each growth phase of the follicle becomes shorter. PRP targets hairs right at the root to reenergize their growth and make them behave like young hairs again.
A leading trend for New Jersey Hair Transplant is FUE
FUE stands for follicular unit extraction. Though the older, FUT, (strip) method is still used today, FUE devices have made the process of hair transplantation less traumatic to the hair grafts themselves and less so for the patient. FUE allows for tiny, 1mm hair grafts to be punched out of the back of the scalp where hair growth is more dense, then transferred into the recipient site. The result is a micro punch incision at the back of the head which closes easily within a day or two. There are no stitches required and no long, “hair transplant scar” that traditional methods leave behind.
How Are the New Jersey PRP Hair Injections Done?
First, a topical numbing agent is applied to the scalp to completely numb the area and keep the patient comfortable. Next a small sample of blood is drawn from the arm then spun in a centrifuge. The PRP serum is a straw-colored fluid that is injected through very fine needles into the scalp. After the solution has been administered throughout the treatment area, the patient can leave the clinic and return to daily activities immediately. It’s possible there will be mild sensitivity of the scalp for a day or two but there is no downtime, no redness, swelling or bruising expected. 3-4 treatments are recommended, 1 or 2 months apart. After the first sessions, maintenance can be kept with treatments twice per year. It’s as easy as that.
