Hair loss doesn’t have to be permanent. Many in the thinning or bald category can make lasting change and stop the trend before becoming bald altogether. Here’s how platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP treatment in Arlington, TX, can help treat hair loss issues.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
First, what is PRP? Platelet-rich plasma is blood plasma extracted through concentrating platelets. A platelet carries certain things that make human growth possible, such as active growth factors and cytokines that help stimulate hair growth. Platelet plasma stimulates hair growth, repairs tissue and even helps regenerate injured areas with accelerated cell growth. That’s why a PRP treatment in Arlington, TX can help keep you from losing hair and heal injured tissue.
How Does It Work?
First, technicians extract blood from the patient’s body. Then, the patient’s blood is centrifuged in such a way the enriched cells of the platelets are the only ones left. This now platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is injected directly into the scalp’s affected area.
A PRP treatment in Arlington, TX stimulates stem cells in the hair follicles and other cells in the area of the hair follicle. This kicks the follicles into motion and stimulates growth. Also, it causes your scalp to grow new hair and stimulate inactive follicles to grow.
The results can be slight or extreme depending on your scalp’s disposition. But by and large, the procedure is proven to cause hair to grow.
