What is PRP therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical therapeutic option available to people with hair loss.

Hair restoration provided through a platelet-rich plasma implements the natural stem cells and growth factors of a patient. Blood is drawn from the body of the individual so that it can be prepared for the PRP injections.

It is spun in a special machine to physically separate the plasma that will be injected into the areas that are thinning or losing hair. PRP specialist Dr. Marina Yuabova will apply a powerful anesthetic cream to the scalp so that Platelet Rich Plasma treatment injections do not cause any unnecessary discomfort.

At the Integrative Wellness NY the PRP hair loss therapy restoration procedure is performed by a certified medical professional, PRP specialist in a clinical setting.

PRP hair restoration results are evaluated after 4 months have passed from the initial treatment date, but it’s often recommended to schedule a session every 4 weeks for the best results. After the 4 initial sessions of PRP therapy, the specialist can recommend a long-term maintenance plan.

Recent studies conducted internationally by expert doctors for hair loss and are published on pubmed, recognize PRP therapy as one of the promising treatment modality for hair growth restoration and promotion.  The evidence in the studies “Platelet-Rich Plasma as a Treatment for Androgenetic Alopecia” supports that the growth factors contained in a PRP are responsible to help to stimulate hair follicle growth.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss has always been considered a male problem; however, statistics show that women can also encounter this problem as they age. The majority of women who lose their hair notice it in their 50s, but it might happen at any age and is affected by different reasons.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it is normal for women to lose approximately 50–100 strands of hair each day. These old shedding hairs are usually replaced with the new ones. If you notice that your hairbrush and your shower has more shed hair than it used to, you might need to investigate what the causes of the problem are.

The causes of hair loss are different, and the most common ones are listed below:

  • Unbalanced diet
  • Physical or emotional stress
  • Menopause
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Hereditary
  • Absence of proper hair care
  • Autoimmune disorders

If you experience any of the symptoms or conditions above, please call Dr. Marina Yuabova, leading hair PRP doctor located in Downtown Brooklyn, NY. 

How Does PRP Therapy Treat Hair Loss?

The science behind platelet-rich plasma hair restoration involves blood vessel reparation, increased collagen production, wound healing, and cell growth. As the follicles are stimulated through each PRP treatment, the hair is going to grow in thicker and healthier. This procedure is beneficial as a stand-alone treatment of alopecia, and male pattern baldness.

If you have any questions or would like to receive more information about PPR procedure call our office or Dr. Marina Yakubova, a leading doctor for hair loss.

What Are the Benefits of PRP Hair Loss Treatment?

  • Surgery is not necessary, so patients do not have to go through a long recovery
  • Gentle injections avoid scarring that can occur from a traditional hair transplant
  • Hair growth typically becomes visible within 3 months from the first PRP hair treatment
  • Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can be used to enhance the results of a traditional hair transplant surgery

Is PRP For Me?

Even though there is no guarantee that PRP treatment has absolute effectiveness in hair restoration, a preliminary result of the studies has good, encouraging results. Platelet Rich Plasma is considered a safe and natural treatment since it utilizes the platelets from your own body and there is minimal chance of developing an allergic reaction.

Hair PRP is considered effective for people with live hair follicles. If your hair follicles are damaged or lost, this procedure is not for you. PRP is also contraindicated for people with a history of diabetes, blood-clotting disorder, active infection of the scalp, a history of shingles, or those taking immunosuppressant and blood-thinning medications.

This procedure needs to be performed several times (we recommend at least 3 procedures), every three to four weeks to be effective.  Platelet Rich Plasma treatments can help create new blood vessels in your scalp and stimulate hair growth. Platelet Rich Plasma hair treatment is considered relatively safe and does not cause allergic or hypersensitive reactions. After the treatment, you might experience a mild inflammatory response at the procedure site, which might cause tenderness of your scalp for several days.

Leading doctor for hair loss Marina Yuabova as well as the team of hair restoration specialists will provide all the before and after instructions for a successful PRP treatment.

Can It Be Used With Other Therapies?

Absolutely. In fact, PRP therapy might be more successful if used with other nonsurgical approaches such as Minoxidil and DHT blocker therapies. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy could also be an alternative option for those who are not candidates to perform more invasive surgical procedures for hair restoration.

How Hair Loss Can Be Prevented?

Our diet and lifestyle play a significant role in how our hair feels and looks. It is important to make sure to consume foods that are high in minerals and vitamins, such as selenium, vitamins A, E, and omega-3 fatty acids. Sometimes, problems with hair may be a result of underlying hormonal imbalances, which we discussed previously. In many cases, once hormonal levels are restored, skin and hair texture improves automatically. Sometimes a cause of the problem can be a stressful lifestyle or life-changing events such as pregnancy, surgery, or other chronic medical conditions.

Regardless of the reason, it is important to always address underlying problems and follow the simple hair-care strategies listed below:

  • Keep your hair clean. Our hair is very absorbent, and it attracts and holds molecules of polluted substances from the air. Washing your hair helps to remove the chemicals that you might have absorbed from the air and to prevent them from being absorbed into your system.
  • Treat your hair gently. Avoid over-processing and overheating it. Chemicals in hair coloring and high heat settings on your flat or curling iron can damage your hair, causing changes in its texture and hair loss. Choose natural and organic hair coloring products with fewer chemicals in them. Give color holidays to your hair by changing your hairstyle and color back to your natural looks, and don’t color your hair for several months. Treat it with nourishing and soothing creams or oil treatments to revitalize and to support your hair.
  • Protect your hair from damage caused by direct sun exposure. Sun exposure can cause damage to protein in your hair called keratin, which will make your it thinner and more breakable. Choose hair-care products that are free of chemicals and contain sunscreen.
