Restore Thinning Hair With Regenerative Medicine Therapy

You have a stash of headbands, hats, and scarves that your friends think are fashionable — but you really just use them to hide thinning hair. Before every social event, you spend hours in front of the mirror experimenting with new hair styles to cover sparse spots. When you step out of the shower, you cringe at how much of your scalp is visible. And on it goes. 

Does any of that sound familiar? If you’re nodding your head, consider for a moment what life would be like if you could spend less time, energy, and emotional labor on your hair. Consider how it would feel to confidently flaunt a head full of thick, shiny hair. 

If you think that sounds like a pipe dream, it’s not. With platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, you can enjoy the aesthetic and emotional benefits of a full head of hair. At Dolce Vida Med Spa, Scott Callahan, PA-C, and his expert staff can make this possible for you.

What is PRP therapy? 

Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses your own blood to repair injured or ailing parts of your body. To perform PRP therapy, Mr. Callahan draws blood from your arm and spins it in a centrifuge until its components ― red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets ― separate. He then injects a solution of your platelets into your body at the treatment site — in this case, your scalp

Platelet-rich plasma therapy works because platelets contain special compounds called growth factors, which spur protein synthesis, ignite cellular repair, and promote the body’s natural healing processes.

How does PRP therapy work for hair loss?

When injected into your scalp, the PRP solution promotes hair growth by healing damaged hair follicles. After treatments, your scalp can then support hair growth in areas it previously couldn’t. Patients with androgenetic alopecia, hereditary thinning or baldness, and male-pattern baldness have seen great success with PRP therapy. 

When will I see results?

Your hair didn’t disappear overnight, so it won’t regrow overnight. Your first results will likely come in the form of less shedding. That is, you’ll notice that less hair falls out when you wash, brush, or style your hair. Over time, with a series of treatments, your hair will become fuller and stronger. Most patients notice significant results after a few weeks to a few months. To maintain your results, you should schedule maintenance appointments every few months. 

If you’re ready to end the fixation with hiding your hair loss, book an appointment online or over the phone with Dolce Vida Med Spa today.
