How Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments Can Give You Healthy Hair

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an effective treatment option if you want healthier, fuller hair. Dr. Seman offers this innovative procedure — which uses your own blood to help promote hair growth — at her practice in West Bloomfield Township Michigan.

If you’re discouraged by thin hair or hair loss, you may benefit from nonsurgical PRP treatments, which can safely trigger new hair growth.

How PRP therapy works

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a simple two-step process that can be completed in just a single appointment. First, Dr. Seman extracts a sample of your blood. Your blood’s plasma contains important growth factors that help promote regeneration and healing in your body. These growth factors can also aid in new hair growth.

After Dr. Seman draws your blood, she places it in a centrifuge, which separates your blood’s plasma from its other components. After the plasma is prepared, Dr. Seman carefully injects the plasma into areas of your scalp where your hair is thinning or there’s hair loss. The growth factors will encourage new hair growth from the follicles by extending the growth cycle.

You may need multiple sessions of PRP injections over the course of several months to effectively stimulate the growth of new hair. Within three months of consistent treatment, you should notice a significant difference in your hair growth.

When to consider PRP therapy

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is most beneficial if your hair loss is recent. Injections can revive your ability to grow hair when you start showing signs of hair loss.

Treatment is effective for hair loss associated with both the natural aging process and genetic baldness. Scheduling treatments as early as possible may help improve your success with new hair growth.

Dr. Seman will perform a full evaluation of your health and medical history to determine if PRP therapy is the right option for you. If you have an underlying health condition that is causing your hair loss, PRP treatments may not be as effective.

Get right back into life

Besides its efficiency at improving hair growth, PRP therapy is a popular choice for many men and women, because its minimally invasive and requires no incisions.

Immediately after treatment, you can go right back to your usual activities without needing any downtime. And because there are no incisions, you won’t have to worry about scarring or needing time to heal.
