Beautiful hair is something that everyone strives for. Men and women alike long for beautiful hair, but sometimes the aging process, genetics, and other factors stand in the way between you and your goal hair. If taking a hair vitamin just isn’t doing the trick, we can help. At Radiant Divine Medical Spa in Avon, OH, we offer PRP hair restoration treatments that use the natural healing properties within your own body to improve the health, growth, and quality of your hair.
How Long Does PRP Hair Restoration Take To Work?
PRP treatments for hair restoration are a natural and highly effective way to promote hair growth and improve the overall quality of your hair. Appointments are quick and typically take 30 to 60 minutes to complete based on how many treatment areas are included in your treatment plan. Once you undergo the recommended number of sessions, you can expect to see the results of this treatment within four to six weeks.
Your results will continue to evolve and improve as you complete additional sessions. Most patients notice the most drastic improvement in the health, appearance, quantity, and quality of their hair within three to four months after their initial treatment.
Different factors affect how quickly you can experience your final results. Everything from your commitment to the process to the hair growth cycle comes into play, but one thing remains the same: you will get results and you will love how your hair looks. Most patients experience results that last for a year or longer and then they come in for additional touch-up sessions to help maintain their beautiful hair over time.
When we create a treatment plan, we include the recommended number of sessions necessary to help you reach your hair goals. Your commitment to attending those sessions will help the PRP hair growth process work quickly and effectively. While you will get positive results from one treatment, you won’t get nearly the same kind of results if you stop there than you would from completing all of your recommended sessions.
When you begin this treatment, we will create a customized treatment plan to help you reach your hair goals. Typically, we recommend a set number of sessions with a certain amount of time between each so that we can ensure that the body is regenerating the hair follicles and has all of the PRP that it needs to do so.
The Hair Growth Cycle
Another factor that affects how quickly PRP works is the hair growth cycle. Hair growth has been likened to watching paint dry. It is tedious, and it takes time. It’s not something that you can feasibly or successfully watch from day to day. However, you can measure your hair growth from week to week, or from the start to finish of your PRP hair restoration process. To understand how long it takes for PRP results to appear, you need to understand the hair growth cycle.
The Three Hair Growth Stages
There are three hair growth stages: the anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Each of these phases plays a role in helping new hair grow and existing hair grow longer. For hair growth purposes, the anagen phase is key. You want your hair to stay in this phase as long as possible so that your hair can grow longer and stronger.
While lifestyle, diet, and the way you care for your hair plays a role in how long your hair stays in this phase, PRP treatments are key. They are the secret weapon that can help promote hair growth during this cycle by providing the body with the restorative and regenerative properties and growth factors that it needs to help your hair follicles heal and thrive.
What Is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is found in human blood and contains growth factors and regenerative properties that help heal, restore, and repair. It has been used in the medical world for years to help increase the rate at which an injured joint or tendon heals. Some of the most famous athletes in the world have and continue to turn to PRP injections to help heal injuries and keep them at the top of their game.
The effectiveness of PRP injections in the medical world has now translated into the cosmetic world as well. It has become a popular anti-aging treatment for both skin and scalp concerns. In treating the face, PRP can help restore youth to the skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. However, the benefits don’t stop there. When it is applied to the scalp in injectable form, it delivers powerful growth factors and healing properties to your hair follicles to promote hair growth.
What Can PRP Hair Restoration Treat?
This treatment has become a popular way to naturally yet effectively address different hair concerns. Whether you’ve experienced a recent pregnancy and are struggling with excessive hair loss, or if your genetics have caused pattern baldness or a receding hairline, this treatment can help restore hair growth, heal damaged hair follicles, and stimulate hair growth from follicles that have been dormant. Specifically, it can help treat:
- Pattern baldness
- Receding hairlines
- Thinning hair
- Poor quality hair
- Hair loss
How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?
PRP hair restoration focuses on using the regenerative properties and growth factors found in PRP to restore hair follicles. PRP is a three-step process. These three steps are essential parts that work together to create a treatment that delivers some profound results.
The Blood Draw
Your treatment will begin with a standard blood draw. One of our trained professionals will draw a few tablespoons of your blood. Your blood and your blood alone is the sole ingredient used during this treatment. Once your blood is drawn, we will move on to the processing step.
Processing the PRP
Once your blood is drawn, it will be placed in a device called a centrifuge, which spins the vial of blood for a few minutes. This spinning process separates the PRP from the rest of the blood, or the plasma. One of the most interesting aspects of PRP is that once it is processed and separated from the rest of the blood, it has a golden hue. Once we separate the PRP, we’ll prepare it for injectable form.
The Injection Process
PRP needs a perceived injury to be effective, which is why it is often administered through microneedling treatments or in injectable form. Once processed and prepared for treatment, we will inject it into specific locations on your scalp to help promote even hair growth in your target areas.
Sometimes microneedling is used to help create micro-injuries on the scalp, and then the PRP solution is applied in conjunction with this process to deliver its benefits below the skin.
During your initial consultation, we will review your treatment plan with you and let you know what you can expect during your PRP treatment.
What Are the Benefits?
This treatment offers many different benefits, which is why it is growing in popularity among men and women who want to address the quality of their scalp and their hair. One of the most amazing benefits of this treatment is that it delivers results. Many hair growth miracle treatments promise to give you beautiful, healthy hair, but many of those products damage your hair in the process. This is not one of those treatments. It is powerful, and it works.
It’s a Natural Treatment
This treatment relies on the body for results. It doesn’t use products that contain heavy chemicals or harsh ingredients with the potential to irritate the skin. It uses your blood as the primary ingredient to create positive change on the scalp, leading to increased hair growth, better hair quality, and a healthier scalp.
There Are No Side Effects
Since this treatment uses your own blood, you don’t have to worry about any potential side effects, an allergic reaction, or adverse events post-treatment. You can undergo treatment with complete confidence knowing that your body will respond well to the treatment. Not only will it respond well, but it will take everything in the PRP and use it to begin several different regenerative processes that will help you get better hair.
Almost Everyone Is a Candidate
Because this treatment doesn’t cause any adverse reactions, almost everyone is a candidate. If genetics have negatively affected your hair growth, this treatment can reverse genetics and help you get better hair. From the man or woman suffering from significant hair loss or a receding hairline to the man or woman who just wants amazing hair, this treatment is for anyone and everyone in between.
It Delivers Results
Once you undergo the necessary number of treatments included in your treatment plan, you can expect to see some dramatic results. Before you undergo treatment, be sure to take a before picture of your hair and your scalp, along with any areas on your scalp that you hope to improve. Then, continue to document your progress with photos every few weeks. You’ll be blown away at just how much your hair and your scalp will change in a relatively short period.
It’s Not a Gimmick
You won’t see a PRP hair restoration treatment that you can DIY at home on a late-night infomercial. It’s not something that can be packaged and sold as an at-home product, but that’s a good thing. This in-office treatment is a professional treatment, one that should be performed by a skilled professional who understands how to perform this process, and where to inject the PRP solution on your scalp so that you get your desired results.
When you choose our office for PRP hair restoration treatments, you will be getting a professional service from trained technicians whose goal is to help you get beautiful hair. We will do everything we can to help you reach your hair goals and maintain that beautiful hair for as long as possible.
Am I a Candidate?
If you have experienced hair loss, a receding hairline, or you’re not happy with the quantity and quality of your hair, you are most likely a candidate for this treatment. Our experts will examine your problem areas during an initial consultation to confirm that you are a treatment candidate, and then develop a personalized treatment plan that will help you reach your hair goals.
If the thought of using the growth factors in your own blood to heal your scalp and promote hair growth intrigues you, don’t wait any longer before making this treatment a part of your beauty routine. You can throw away all of those hair care products that have never delivered results and invest instead in a treatment that will.
