Hair Restoration with PRP
What is PRP?
Often referred to as liquid gold, PRP is the portion of our blood containing platelets and growth factors. These eight growth factors target collagen, skin, hair promoting cell growth. PRP has been used in various areas of the body to promote healing. The use in skin and hair improves hair loss, collagen production and new cell generation rejuvenating tissue. The Selphyl system creates a scaffold holding the PRP in place for up to seven days, leading to improved outcomes over traditional systems where PRP is in place for only a few hours. The procedure is approximately 20 minutes. A small amount of blood is drawn from the arm (approximately 9ml, less than 2 teaspoons), cells are separated to harvest the PRP portion, combined with calcium creating PRFM, in a sterile manner and injected. Results can be seen 4-6 weeks after the first treatment, optimally three treatments for hair growth 6 weeks apart. Typically, patients will experience a 19.7% increase in hair density in the treated area(s) during the initial 3 months.* After treatment is complete, they can expect to see a continued increase in the density of the hair in treated areas- approximately 38% on average.* The Selphyl/PRFM injections stimulate healthy cell regrowth that will support lasting regrowth beyond the first year.
Is it Safe?
PRP is safe and effective, utilizing the body’s own restorative tools enhancing the liquid gold and inserting in areas of need.
Can I return to regular activities?
For hair growth, no pressure on treatment area the first seven days will help to maintain the high concentration of PRP in the treated area. All other activities can be resumed.
How Long does it last?
PRP and PRFM have long lasting results weeks to months after initial injection.
Is it painful
Numbing cream is applied to injection area 20 minutes prior to procedure for comfort. Procedure is well tolerated, with mild discomfort without numbing agent.
