You have been losing hair lately. This was a realization that really became a cause for concern recently. Perhaps you've heard about platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration. At first you might have thought this is simply another fad in hair restoration technology. However, PRP has turned out to be a very effective approach to treating hair loss in a lot of patients. In fact, it's effective enough that many people undergoing PRP treatment for hair loss have not needed to rush out and get hair transplant surgery. At Glow Medispa in Seattle and Kirkland, WA, we have had many years experience with hair loss treatment with PRP and a newer treatment called KeraLase.
The procedure for PRP hair restoration is fairly straightforward. At your appointment, your doctor will take a small sample of your blood. This blood will be put into a specialized centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells, leaving behind the plasma that is rich in growth factors. This growth factor-rich plasma is then used to formulate the PRP injections your doctor will use in your PRP hair restoration procedure. By applying PRP injections to your scalp, the idea is for the PRP solution to start repairing hair follicles. As you can imagine, this would be exciting for anyone who has lost a significant amount of hair.
The KeraLase treatment is an improvement over PRP. The hair-growth stimulating factors in the blood are made into tiny particles that can be absorbed by the skin (called kerafactor). A gentle laser is used to open up the skin to maximize the absorption of the kerafactor. No blood draw or injections are necessary. This way you stimulate the hair without needles or pain.
Anyone who has experienced hair loss and wishes to reverse the tide may be eligible for this treatment. It is also important to note that the ideal candidate will also harbor realistic expectations as far as KeraLase or PRP treatment for hair loss and what it can accomplish.
