What is Non-Surgical Hair Restoration: PRP Therapy
Platelet-rich Plasma therapy is also known as PRP. One of the most effective non-surgical hair restoration treatments for hair loss. PRP is a concentration of platelets and plasma which came from a sample of your blood. After that, it will reinject into the scalp. This treatment is a rich source of specialized proteins that promote both hair growth and healing. PRP acts as fertilizer for the hair allowing it to grow stronger and thicker.
This type of non-surgical hair restoration only takes about 10 minutes. There is no downtime post-treatment. Therefore, you can resume your regular activities after the procedure.
PRP HAIR RESTORATION
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves taking a patient’s own blood and spinning it down in a centrifuge machine to separate out the growth-factor rich platelets. Your MAXiM surgeon will first numb your scalp with local anesthesia, and then inject the plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets, into target areas in the scalp to promote hair growth. This is especially useful for patients in the early stages of hair loss.
PRP therapy may be used alone, or in combination with many other surgical and nonsurgical procedures such as hair transplants, stem cell therapy, and microneedling.
This nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure only takes about an hour to perform. If done independently, patients will need from 3 to 5 treatments for maximum results. However, only one treatment is needed if combined with a hair transplant, microneedling, or stem cells.
STEM CELL THERAPY
Stem cell therapy involves using a patient’s own fat to harvest stem cells and inject into the scalp to reverse the shrinking of hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.
Your MAXiM surgeon will perform a mini-liposuction to obtain 1 to 2 ounces of fat tissue from the abdominal area. This procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour. Once we receive the stem cells back, the doctor will numb your scalp with local anesthesia and inject the stem cells into the targeted areas. These injections take about 30 minutes to complete.
This advanced hair restoration treatment can be combined with PRP therapy, microneedling, or a hair transplant for maximum results.
Micro-needling is a type of cosmetic treatment that addresses the different effects of aging. This type of non-surgical hair restoration involves the use of a skin roller with small needles that causes minor skin injuries. There is also evidence that it can help a special type of hair loss known as alopecia areata.
Microneedling involves the use of a skin roller to cause minor skin injuries on the scalp. The roller device contains hundreds of tiny needles that extend to the middle layer of the skin. The micro injuries to the skin encourage the growth of new collagen and elastin and may also help to regenerate hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth, especially when used in conjunction with PRP or stem cell therapy. In addition, the micro injuries improve the absorption of minoxidil (Rogaine®) and topical steroids and improve the health of existing hair.
Microneedling can help with alopecia (hereditary hair loss), lichen planis (patchy hair loss), and related disorders. You MAXiM practitioner will apply a topical anesthetic prior to the procedure and a soothing balm or serum after the treatment. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour.
