Did you know that when we lose hair, the follicles don’t disappear? The follicles usually just become dormant. That is why hair restoration with PRP in Naples is one of the most promising treatments out there at the moment. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and is coming from your own body. When injected into the scalp, PRP has the ability to stimulate the regenerative medicine in the hair root. That action turns on the hair follicle again. If you’re frustrated by hair loss or hair thinning, PRP is a procedure you should consider for promoting hair growth.
How It Works
For years, platelet-rich plasma treatments have been used in the medical field to assist in wound healing for orthopedic issues, cardiovascular surgery, dermatology and more. Your blood plasma contains an abundance of natural growth factors that help your body regenerate new cells.
The procedure is safe and comfortably performed in-office. Our skilled Naples technician will draw a small amount of blood from your arm and have it spun in a centrifuge machine to separate or isolate the rich growth factors from your red blood cells.
A numbing cream will be applied first, and then your technician will inject the concentrated PRP into your scalp. The entire process takes less than an hour.
Hair restoration with PRP in Naples has become a popular aesthetic treatment for both women and men. The procedure has also had multiple studies performed that show its effectiveness for both androgenic alopecia and alopecia areata.
For example, during the BioMed Research International 2014, the participants involved had one PRP treatment done on half of their scalp. The study revealed that three months post-treatment, the treated area showed a significant increase in absolute hair counts as well as hair density.
Hair restoration with platelet-rich plasma is a slow but steady kind of treatment and will require repeated sessions, but our aesthetic expert can recommend the proper monthly visits you will need for optimal results. Generally, three sessions are performed spaced a month apart.
Hair thinning or loss of hair is difficult for anyone to experience. Hair restoration with PRP is one of the newest and most promising treatments out there. Best of all, it is a procedure that uses your individual blood plasma to naturally encourage the regrowth of hair.
