Hair Rejuvenation Dallas
Is hair loss or thinning a concern for you? New research has offered a novel approaches to hair restoration. We can stimulate growth of your hair with laser therapy and/or with PRP, i.e. platelet rich plasma, a component of your blood. These procedures are outpatient procedures and do not require surgery. These technologies have been used in our practice for years to improve and stimulate the healing of tissues. We utilize these powers of healing to stimulate the growth of your hair.
PRP to stimulates growth of your hair
Your PRP contains growth factors which stimulate growth. PRP is the substance in your blood that helps your skin heal itself when cut. Its growth factors stimulate growth of your blood vessels. This increases blood supply to your tissue cells and stimulates growth of new tissue. On your skin, you see healing occur. PRP does similar actions in your hair, increasing their blood supply which increases their growth. Plus dormant follicles are stimulated to grow by the growth factors. It is effective for both men and women who suffer from hair loss. It also can be used in the eyebrows.
Studies demonstrate effectiveness of PRP in Hair Growth
Recent scientific research and technology has discovered the beneficial effects PRP has on the growth of hair. A recent study supported the clinical application of PRP in hair restoration. It demonstrated several pathways where PRP stimulates the growth of hair. Through its stimulation of blood vessels, it improves circulation to dormant follicles. If they are feed well, they are more likely to grow and flourish producing new hairs and improving the growth of the existing cells. Other studies have also demonstrated the beneficial effects of PRP in hair loss conditions.
About the procedure and recovery
PRP hair restoration sessions are easy. Each session lasts about an hour. First, we draw your blood just like we do when you are having routine blood testing performed on your blood. The blood is spun down using a state-of-the-art technique and centrifuge which separates the PRP from the other components of the blood. Using cold anesthesia, the PRP is injected into small holes on the scalp through a series of micro needle sticks. Recovery is quick; most people can resume normal activities the day after the procedure. We recommend you have a series of sessions, one every 4 to 6 weeks and then boosters every 6 to 12 months to keep the vessels, follicles, and other supportive skin structures stimulated to grow.
Results and Maintenance
Most people are satisfied with their treatments, but just like everything else on your face and body, maintenance is needed. Procedures must be performed regularly for optimal results. We have packages that help make these procedures very affordable for most people. In addition, we recommend that we evaluate you to make sure you do not suffer from other possible causes of hair loss, including optimal hormonal balancing and taking medications that could help or hinder growth of your hair. Because there are so many variables, successful results may only be achieved 60% of the time. Remember it takes a long time to grow hair. Many people do not see results until 3 to 6 months after the initial injections. However, if you see a beautician at a hair salon regularly, many times they will be the first ones who will tell you that you have new growth of your hair.
