Nobody wants to lose their hair. However, for millions of women and men, there’s little that can be done about it. Hair loss can have a devastating impact on your confidence and self-esteem and it can affect everything from what you wear to how you interact with people.
A groundbreaking new therapy may hold the key to hair restoration. Hair-growth treatments with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can halt hair loss, and in some cases even reverse it. By using the body’s own stem cells, PRP therapy has been shown to improve hair growth and quality over time.
Your blood contains a substance known as platelets, which are vital to your body’s natural wound-healing process. These platelets contain growth factors that have been shown to stimulate tissue generation and repair.
PRP is a concentrated form of blood plasma that has elevated levels of these growth factors. Hair-loss treatments with PRP at Zuliani Facial Aesthetics will encourage tissue repair, enhance thickness, as well as improve the overall active growing environment for thinning hair.
Dr. Zuliani recommends PRP hair restoration for women and men who are experiencing a natural thinning and loss of hair. Patients in the early stages of hair loss will likely see the most benefit, however, favorable results can be seen in most anyone suffering hair loss. A personalized PRP hair restoration treatment can help to address hair thinning.
Your PRP Hair Restoration treatment with Dr. Zuliani will be personalized, based on your unique needs and goals.
PRP hair restoration treatments are performed in-office at Zuliani Facial Aesthetics in Bloomfield Hills. First, blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. Once the enriched plasma is prepared, the area you have chosen to be treated will be cleaned, a local anesthetic applied if desired, and the PRP will be directly injected into the areas where the hair loss occurred. There is minimal discomfort with this treatment and the entire process from start to finish takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of areas treated.
Recovery times after PRP hair restoration treatments are minimal as there are few side effects. Some numbness, mild swelling, bruising, and bleeding may occur in the hours after your injections, but will subside in 1-2 days. Vigorous activities should be avoided until those symptoms fade, but patients can wash their hair normally immediately after treatment. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, patients are able to get back to their normal activities right away.
Though most people see at least some hair regrowth with PRP, results are not instantaneous. Most patients should expect noticeable results within 4-6 months depending on their hair-growth cycle. It’s important to keep in mind that outcomes vary based on the individual and the stage of hair loss they were in when starting PRP therapy. Dr. Zuliani recommends a series of 4 treatments initially, and then ongoing “boosters” treatments annually for optimal hair-growth results.
