You have been struggling with hair loss for some time now. It was not the kind of problem you imagined yourself having in your mid-20s. Out of nowhere, your hair just started falling out fast. What really seemed to bother you was that this much hair loss made you look older than you actually are. You never would have believed how hair loss like that would make you appear to age so much, yet the mirror was not lying about the results. In fact, it is so convincing that you rarely even get carded anymore. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult for you to date people your own age, because they see your hair loss and assume you are much older. Needless to say, you feel as if your early adulthood is being robbed from you as you continue to lose more hair with each passing day. Fortunately, your friend told you about a new hair restoration treatment that he tried called PRP therapy. You could not believe how amazing it worked in his situation. Although, his hair loss was not as significant as your hair loss happened to be. But still, the results he got were amazing. You started to think that maybe if you tried PRP hair restoration, this would once again help you to start looking more your age.
How PRP Hair Restoration Works
What you may not know is that PRP hair restoration is a method that uses your body’s own components to lead to significant change in the way your follicles operate. PRP is short for the term platelet-rich plasma. The plasma in your own blood is the key to an approach to turning your hair loss around. With PRP hair restoration, a doctor can put a small sample of your blood through a centrifuge and extract the plasma which contains a heavy concentration of platelets and other important growth factors. This plasma is then prepared and injected into your scalp where you are experiencing hair loss. At this point, the PRP preparation goes to work repairing your follicles. This makes it possible for your follicles to regrow hair as they used to. The nice thing about this procedure is that it is easy to perform and there is no actual recovery time. The same day you have the procedure done, you can go about your normal routine. After the procedure is finished, then it is a matter of time before you know how well it works.
Improving Hair Transplant Surgery
Another important use of PRP in hair restoration is that it can hugely benefit patients in Boston who need hair transplant surgery. To help grafted hair follicles to take hold, a PRP preparation is used in the region of the scalp to encourage optimal results. In some cases, this helps to produce a thicker and fuller head of hair.
