What Can Platelets Do For Hair?

Have you heard of the hair loss cure that can be found in your own blood?

One of our most popular treatment methods is called PRP, (platelet-rich plasma.) This revolutionary treatment has been used in medicine for over two decades, though it’s relatively new to hair restoration. Our clients are impressed by their results, but many people have questions about this 100% natural treatment. Here we’ll outline your top 5 questions and tell you what you need to know about PRP for hair loss in NJ.

In everyone’s blood, there are a number of components. These include red and white cells, plus platelets. The platelets,in turn, contain many growth factors which help initiate cell growth, healing and clotting. Those growth factors will be present in 5 times the normal concentration when extracted from your blood. They are believed to stimulate dormant hair follicles and to improve the blood flow to each hair root, increasing growth.

How Does PRP In NJ Treat Hair Loss?

Androgenetic alopecia, often called male pattern hair loss, causes miniaturization of hair follicles and they eventually go dormant. Although it can’t grow hair where there are no active follicles at all, it’s been shown to boost the function of dormant follicles. Injecting it to the roots of the hair in the scalp dermis can stimulate shrinking hair follicles which will reverse or halt the loss of hair.

Many people aren’t aware that it was discovered decades ago and has a long track record of useful medical application. Popular with surgeons, physicians and dentists, it’s been applied to heal damaged joints, decrease inflammation, repair tissues faster and stimulate new tissue growth. In the early 2000s, PRP made the news for a celebrity facial known as the “vampire facial,” however it wasn’t long before hair transplant surgeons discovered that this miraculous product could also boost hair transplant results or take the place of a surgery entirely for some patients.

Itis also effective for treating traction alopecia. This is a sometimes-permanent, balding condition related to tight hairstyles such as braids and weaves.
