If you have suffered from hair loss and want to find a way to restore your hair, consider treatments like stem cell therapy and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy. These regenerative treatments can improve your scalp health, decrease hair loss, and increase hair growth using your body’s own healing properties. These treatments are safe, effective, and will get you great results.
Let’s take a look at the benefits of each of these treatments and why you should consider speaking with a hair loss specialist about them.
Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Loss
Stem cells are the building-block cells of the body. They are unspecialized cells that have not taken on the role of specific cells yet and therefore have the ability to transform into other types of cells that the body needs. Stem cell therapy for hair loss involves extracting and using stem cells to benefit the scalp and reverse hair loss.
To perform stem cell therapy, your doctor will remove a small amount of adipose (fat) tissue from your body. Fat deposits contain large amounts of stem cells that can be easily extracted. Once extracted, they will be concentrated. To perform the regrowth procedure, your doctor will inject the stem cell solution directly into the scalp.
Stem cell therapy can take a few hours to complete and can require multiple sessions for optimal results. Your doctor will recommend the right number of sessions for you, depending on the results you desire.
It can take a few months to notice a difference in your hair growth. There is no permanent solution to hair loss that can be available overnight. Even hair transplant surgery procedures take months before you can see results.
PRP Therapy for Hair Regrowth
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a treatment involving your own blood. Our blood contains platelets that have growth and healing factors. When a high concentration of platelets is present in a particular area of the body, they promote healing. PRP therapy aims to do just that.
To perform PRP therapy, your physician will take a small amount of blood from you and use a machine (centrifuge) to separate the content of the blood and isolate the platelet-rich plasma from it. Once isolated, the physician will take the plasma and inject it into the part the body that needs it – in this case, the scalp. This is often done through injections into the areas of the scalp that are facing hair loss.
The procedure to perform PRP therapy on the scalp can take a few hours. However, this is a minimally invasive procedure and does not require much downtime. You can resume your normal activities following each treatment; PRP therapy does require multiple sessions. Your doctor will guide you on how many sessions you need, depending on the results you want.
Hair loss does not have to be a permanent thing, and there are a lot of options you can take advantage of to stop hair loss in its tracks. If you are interested in learning about advanced treatments that can effectively get you to the hair results you desire, talk to a hair loss specialist about stem cell and PRP therapy.
