What Is PRP for Hair Restoration?

PRP for hair restoration is a state-of-the-art procedure that can address thinning hair or bald spots. There are several reasons why hair loss happens, and in many cases, it is irreversible. To regain a full head of hair and fill in thinning patches, people explore interventions like PRP for hair restoration in The Woodlands.

Aging, stress, genetics, and other factors play a part in temporary or permanent hair loss. PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, is believed to effectively enhance hair growth when injected into the scalp. This therapy is sometimes combined with other approaches and medications. Moreover, it is significantly less invasive than hair transplants.

The staff and service at Rivela Plastic Surgery were top notch for my hair restoration treatment. I typically have high anxiety for medical procedures, but the care I received during my procedure made it go very smoothly and I have been very pleased with the result.

Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?

When your age finally catches up to you, you might start to notice a receding hairline. If you have a genetic predisposition to balding, you will find it beneficial to explore PRP hair restoration.

This procedure is also an excellent option for patients looking for a non-surgical solution to hair loss. PRP for hair restoration does not require any incisions, stitches, or recovery time.

Your Hair-Restoration Consultation

Consulting with Dr. Lucian Rivela is the first step in your hair restoration journey. Dr. Rivela will help you determine the right way to address your hair problems.

During a consultation in our Woodlands office, your scalp and hair will be examined to set the right expectations for your PRP hair-restoration injections. It’s best to be completely honest when answering any questions regarding your overall health, hereditary factors, and lifestyle so that Dr. Rivela can properly evaluate the risk of complications.

The PRP for Hair Restoration Procedure

PRP for hair restoration is a three-step process that makes use of your own blood, which minimizes the chance of any adverse reaction. Usually, it takes three treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart, to see results. Maintenance injections may be required every 4 to 6 months.

The first step in the process is obtaining platelet-rich plasma from your blood. Your blood will be drawn and placed in a centrifuge. This machine mechanically separates the components of your blood. Once the plasma is ready, it will be drawn into a syringe and then injected into the areas of your scalp which need more hair growth.

Local anesthetic is used to numb the area where injections will be administered. You need to inform Dr. Rivela if you have a known allergic reaction to anesthesia. Patients may also be able to use Pro-Nox, a self-administered analgesic, to control any pain, discomfort, or anxiety during the process. This 50/50 mix of oxygen gas and nitrous oxide takes effect very quickly, and its effects fade more quickly than the lingering side effects of general anesthesia.
