Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration Therapy
Hair restoration in Columbus, Ohio can help you gain confidence in your appearance. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration has become a widespread treatment for hair loss. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Hair Restoration contains a range of proteins and growth factors that speed up tissue repair. Often hair loss is a result from damage to hair follicles. PRP Hair Restoration has become a successful method in reversing the damage in the hair follicles. PRP Hair Restoration for women and PRP Hair restoration for men are equally successful. PRP has proven to combat hair loss in 70% of cases. At Columbus Facial Plastics we use the FDA cleared Eclipse PRP Hair Restoration system.
How does Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration work?
Our blood contains fundamental life-giving protein factors. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Hair Restoration utilizes a leading-edge patented technology that is specifically designed to capture a high concentration of your own biological (autologous) cells. These cells are rich in nutrients and create autologous platelet rich plasma. Hair Growth using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration starts with a standard blood draw from your arm. The tube of blood is placed into special equipment called a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood at an extremely rapid rate which separates the platelet rich plasma from other components of the blood. The plasma is removed from the tube and injected into that patient’s scalp at the hair follicles. The injections are spaced out to cover the area of thinning hair.
Will I need multiple Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Treatments?
The optimal schedule for PRP Hair Restoration Treatments is based on stimulating the factors associated with hair loss. PRP Hair Restoration Treatments are typically performed monthly for three to four months and then every three to six months thereafter. An average PRP Hair Restoration treatment at Columbus Facial Plastics at Sullivan Centre will take about one hour. The treatment time will vary based on your individual needs.
Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Safe?
Because the Platelet rich plasma is processed from your own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction. As with any medical procedures, there are always benefits and risks. These will be discussed with you by our board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Nogan. All procedures at Columbus Facial Plastics at Sullivan Centre require a consultation with the surgeon. Possible side effects are those that relate to any injection procedure. These are rare in nature and may include (but are not limited to) infection, irritation, hematoma (bruising) and damage to blood vessels. During your consultation appointment you will learn more about treatment plans, benefits and risks so that you can make an informed decision whether Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for hair restoration is right for you.
Is there down time with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration?
There is no significant downtime with PRP Hair Restoration, and most people can resume normal activities immediately. Some patients may experience a slight headache for a few hours following the PRP Hair Restoration Treatment and have slight bruising at the blood draw site. We suggest that you schedule your initial PRP Hair Restoration treatment during a timeframe when you have a few hours to rest following your treatment. This will give you a benchmark on what to expect from your subsequent PRP Hair Restoration treatments.
Is there scarring from Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration?
PRP Hair Restoration is done through a series of injections. The injections are typically very small and leave no lasting imprint on your scalp. There is no scarring associated with PRP Hair Restoration injections.
