Hair Restoration

Your hairline is one of the most important features of your face. It can make or break your look. That’s why it’s important to do whatever you can to preserve your hairline. One of the best ways to do this is with PRP hair restoration.

Preserve Your Hairline

Hair loss is a common issue that plagues both men and women. And while numerous treatments are advertised as solutions for hair loss, most of them come with numerous side effects or simply don’t work. When it comes to hair loss, it’s better to act fast and stop the progression of hair loss before it escalates. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own blood to stimulate hair growth and stop androgenic alopecia in its tracks.

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP hair restoration uses your own blood to promote hair growth. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of your blood with a high concentration of growth factors. These growth factors are important for healing and tissue regeneration. When injected into the scalp, the growth factors facilitate the formation of new blood vessels, stimulate blood flow to the scalp, and activate the dormant hair follicles, thus preventing the progression of your receding hairline.

Dr. Erickson’s Hair Restoration Technique

Dr. Erickson’s medical staff performs a highly personalized PRP hair restoration after a thorough evaluation. During your consultation, the medical provider will carefully examine your scalp and hair, discuss your goals and concerns, determine the stage of androgenic alopecia, and curate a personalized treatment plan for you. The medical provider will also walk you through every step of the treatment so you know what to expect.

Your PRP hair restoration starts with a blood draw. The medical provider draws a small sample of your blood from your arm via a syringe. Your blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, which rises to the top of the vial. The medical provider cleanses your scalp and applies a numbing gel to ensure comfort. Finally, the PRP serum is injected into targeted areas of your scalp.

Recovery After PRP Hair Restoration

Some common side effects of PRP hair restoration include temporary redness, swelling, numbness, or itching at the injection site. These side effects are usually mild and resolve within a few days. PRP therapy for hair restoration involves little to no downtime. The average person can return to normal activities the same day or the next day. But it is important to avoid strenuous activity or exercise for 24-48 hours after the treatment.

The Results of PRP Hair Restoration

Most people will start to see results from their PRP hair restoration treatment within 3-6 months. However, it can take up to 12 months to see the full extent of the results. The number of PRP treatments you need will depend on your situation. Most people need 3-5 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to see the best results. The results are not permanent, so you’ll need regular touch-ups to keep hair loss at bay.
