Regenerate hair growth
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is found within your own blood and is full of growth factors that can promote tissue regeneration, healing, collagen stimulation and hair restoration. It is completely natural and is created by a simple blood draw of your own blood. Next, the PRP is separated from other blood components using a centrifuge. PRP can be used in many different ways, but at Audubon Facial Plastic Surgery, primarily we use PRP for hair restoration and to promote wound healing in larger surgeries such as a facelift. By injecting PRP into your scalp, these condensed platelets and growth factors stimulate the hair follicles to grow over time, resulting in hair growth. Generally, it is recommended that you undergo several sessions about 6 months apart to encourage growth.
Not everyone will experience success from PRP hair restoration. Factors include the level of hair loss and underlying cause of the hair loss.
To find out if you are an eligible candidate, you will need to book a consultation with Dr. Melancon. This will allow her to examine you, review your history, and discuss whether PRP hair restoration is right for you. To find out more, contact Audubon Facial Plastic Surgery and book your appointment.
This treatment usually happens in the doctor’s office and takes about an hour. First, a simple blood draw will be performed. Dr. Melancon then puts your blood in a centrifuge, which spins and separates your plasma from your blood. Once the plasma is separated, Dr. Melancon will prepare your injections and then inject the PRP into the target areas. After this is complete, your treatment is done.
There is little to no downtime needed after your injection(s)
You may feel sore after the procedure at the injection sites, but that should quickly fade. You may also have slight swelling and bruising, which should go down quickly. Most people are able to resume their normal daily activities shortly after receiving a PRP injection.
Because this procedure uses your own plasma to stimulate hair growth, your results will take some time to become visible. Should the PRP injection be successful, you can expect a gradual improvement in your hairline over several months.
If you are interested in hair restoration through a natural, nonsurgical treatment, then PRP Hair Restoration could be a great option for you. To find out more, book a consultation with Dr. Melancon at Audubon Facial Plastic Surgery today.
PRP injections are generally very well tolerated, and generally topical anesthesia is used to make the experience even more comfortable.
If you find yourself increasingly uncomfortable with your hair loss and want to promote hair growth without surgery or chemicals, then PRP hair restoration may provide the results you’re hoping for.
There are no scars. On the other hand, PRP injections can actually improve scars by stimulating collagen growth within the scar tissue. In the case of hair restoration, they serve to stimulate hair growth and do not leave any marks behind.
In general, PRP injections cost about $500-600. Call the office and schedule an appointment for a more accurate estimate of cost.
