Maybe you’ve been dealing with hair loss for years, or maybe it’s a new problem for you. Either way, you probably want to do something about it. But where do you start? Hair growth shampoos can be ineffective at reversing hair loss but you don’t necessarily want to go the surgical route either.
Fortunately, there’s a middle ground. With platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair treatment, Dr. Peymon Zarreii and our team at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics can directly support your hair follicles. Plus, this minimally invasive hair loss reversal option is available right here at our office in Delray Beach, Florida.
Is PRP a fit for your hair goals? To help you decide, let’s look more closely at how PRP hair treatment works for hair loss.
Medical experts use PRP to harness your body’s ability to heal itself, making this treatment effective to support recovery from injuries, ease pain, improve skin, and regrow hair.
The process starts when Dr. Zarreii takes a small sample of your blood. Using a centrifuge, he separates the platelets from the other components in your blood, arriving at the PRP.
This gives him an effective hair treatment tool because your body already uses platelets to support healing and regeneration. When you get cut, for example, your system sends platelets there.
By creating a solution that has a high concentration of platelets and injecting it into your scalp, Dr. Zarreii suffuses your hair follicles with platelets. This way, your hair follicles can use the growth factors in your platelets to kickstart new growth. The PRP helps to improve blood supply in the follicle and thicken the hair shaft. Over time, this means you regain your ability to grow thick, healthy hair.
PRP is a relatively new field of regenerative medicine. Still, early research shows that PRP helps people living with hair loss — and that it may outperform Rogaine®.
Talk with Dr. Zarreii about your hair goals and he can determine if PRP is right for you. If it is, you should know that it doesn’t work overnight. Generally, you’ll need several sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to see an improvement in your hair.
Fortunately, because Dr. Zarreii gets the PRP from your own blood, this hair treatment option comes with minimal risk for side effects. You don’t need to worry about downtime, either. You can get your treatment and continue on with your day afterward.
