What kind of hair restoration treatment do you offer at New Look Medical Spa?
At New Look Medical Spa, we use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment for hair restoration! According to a 2019 study, 70% of patients report feeling satisfied with PRP treatment for hair restoration. PRP treatment is widely regarded as one of the safest cosmetic procedures for hair loss, especially when it is used in conjunction with Proscar (finasteride) or Rogaine (minoxidil) for hair loss. As such, it is a safe and effective hair restoration treatment!
How does PRP hair restoration work and how is it performed?
Platelet-rich plasma promotes hair restoration through tiny blood cells (i.e. platelets) that target the Dermal Papilla, which is an indentation at the base of the hair follicle. In doing so, these platelets stimulate inactive hair follicles to generate hair growth. They also promote healing and new cell production.
The actual procedure of PRP treatment for hair restoration is a streamlined and non-invasive three-step process. When you arrive at New Look Medical Spa for your appointment, the first thing that will occur after the check-in process is a nurse or another medical professional will draw blood from your arm. Secondly, the blood will be put in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. This stage takes about ten minutes. When it is completed, the blood will be separated into three layers, namely, platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells. Finally, the platelet-rich plasma is drawn into a syringe and then injected into the specified areas of the scalp that require hair restoration. During this stage, the medical professional will likely provide you with a topical anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable for you. This process generally takes about one hour and you will more than likely be able to resume your daily activities without any complications.
To maintain great results, you will likely need to continue with treatment every four to six months.
What causes hair loss in men?
While there are many possible contributing factors to hair loss in men, the most common cause is a result of genetics and aging. Men commonly begin to experience hair loss in their mid-30s to early 40s. That said, there are other less common reasons for hair loss, including trauma, protein deprivation, hormonal changes, iron deficiency anemia, and thyroid disease. There are some conditions that can complicate PRP treatment, such as thyroid disease, low platelet count, cancer, metabolic disease, etc. If you have any concerns about whether or not you would be a fit for PRP treatment, feel free to give us a call at (248) 936-6692.
How much does PRP Hair Restoration cost?
The cost of PRP treatment for hair restoration will depend on the number of injections you require, which, in turn, will depend on how severe your hair loss is. Single injections usually cost somewhere in the $400 range, with the average treatment session ranging from $1,500 to $3,000.
