Never underestimate the power of great hair.
Your hair is indisputably one of the most crucial aspects of your looks. Aside from the fact that it’s the first thing people notice, it’s also key to maintaining a youthful appearance.
However, heredity, hormonal changes, pregnancy, and age, among others, can cause excessive hair fall. Left unaddressed, these may lead to hair loss that can negatively affect your overall appearance and self-esteem.
Enter PRP Therapy, a hair restoration treatment by Etanda Skin Solutions.
What Is PRP Therapy?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is one of the hair restoration procedures available to patients who are experiencing age- or stress-related hair loss.
As a nonsurgical hair loss treatment, PRP Therapy involves injecting platelets that are taken from your own blood and into your scalp. Platelets contain growth factors that prompt healing and tissue rejuvenation.
Simply put, PRP Therapy helps stimulate the hair follicles resulting in the slowing down of hair loss and helping hair growth.
It’s a natural solution for hair rejuvenation and a non-surgical alternative to a hair transplant. Plus, there’s no risk of allergy or infection since the treatment uses your own platelets.
Things to Expect at Your Hair Restoration Treatment
Hair restoration procedures prompt healing and stimulate hair growth. In the hands of qualified providers like Etanda Skin Solutions, you can restore not just your hair, but also your confidence.
Thinking about trying a hair restoration treatment? Here are six things you can expect during a PRP Treatment:
We’ll conduct a scalp assessment to determine the causes of your hair loss. We may also ask you to undergo blood work to check if you have any vitamin deficiency.
The initial consultation is an important step in determining the best treatment plan for you.
To help you understand how the treatment works, your provider will go over all the risks and side effects. You’ll also be informed about what to expect after the treatment and the proper post-procedure aftercare.
The next step is the blood draw. For most patients, this is usually derived from a vein on the inside of your elbow.
Deriving the PRP
In order to retrieve the platelets that will be used in PRP Therapy, the blood sample drawn earlier will be put in a centrifuge. This will then separate the red blood cells from the plasma in order to derive the platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Numbing the Treatment Area
The PRP Treatment itself is minimally-invasive. To maximize your comfort, your provider may numb the treatment area before proceeding with the next step.
PRP Hair Injections
The last step is a series of quick PRP hair injections in every area with evident hair loss. Each injection takes only a few minutes and the duration of the entire process will depend on the size of the treatment area.
Because there’s no downtime required, you can go back to your normal activities right after the treatment. For best results, it’s recommended to get follow-up treatments every few months.
