Hair Restoration 101: Everything You Need to Know

All About Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration

Are you experiencing thinning hair or premature hair loss? 

You’re not alone in this predicament, as many men across the world report enduring male pattern baldness. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, hair loss, or androgenetic alopecia, affects 50 million men in the U.S. alone. Plus, over 50% of men over the age of 50 will experience some level of hair loss. Although some risk factors remain unknown, premature hair loss is thought to be due to a variety of genetic, hormonal, and environmental factors. This means that your family genes, as well as your stress levels, could all be contributing to your thinning hair. 

Since we as men, take pride in our hair, male pattern baldness is a common insecurity for men across the world. Thin hair can lead to low self esteem, as a full head of hair is often seen as a symbol of youth and vitality. That’s why here at Lowcountry Male, we offer a non-surgical hair restoration treatment utilizing your body’s own Platelet-rich plasma to help reverse your symptoms and restore your self confidence. 

Are you tired of covering up your thinning hair with hats, spray on products, and comb overs? Learn more about the many benefits of PRP hair restoration therapy below. 

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

As we get older, our hair follicles lose the ability to regenerate new cells leading to thinning hair. But, did you know that your own blood can be used as a natural way to combat this and improve your hair growth? Platelet-rich plasma is a component of your blood that contains special proteins, vitamins, and nutrients that promote healing and rejuvenation. These growth factors in the PRP are able to stimulate collagen production, which is the amino acid that builds keratin, the protein that creates hair. 

PRP hair restoration is able to help reverse the miniaturization and decay of your hair follicles. This is done by activating adult stem cells that repair the damaged tissue, thus regenerating damaged hair and stimulating new hair growth. Restore your confidence, as well as your hair, through this simple procedure. 

PRP Hair Restoration Procedure

How it works

The PRP hair restoration procedure is a natural alternative to invasive surgery and is relatively pain-free. It can be completed in about 90 minutes, so you will be in and out in no time. 

A blood sample will be drawn and placed inside a centrifuge that will separate the platelet-rich plasma containing the essential proteins and growth factors that stimulate natural hair growth. 

Next, the skin of your scalp will be numbed for your comfort and the PRP will be delivered to the target area with a microneedling pen or an injection with a very fine needle by one of our skilled medical professionals. Since nothing artificial is being used and only your own natural blood is being injected, you can be confident that the procedure is safe and your body will not reject the cells. 

Additional Treatment 

All plans include a combination Finasteride/Minoxidil treatment, which have been scientifically proven to increase the effectiveness of the procedure. Finasteride is a tablet taken by mouth that works by blocking the body’s production of dihydrotestosterone, which is the male hormone responsible for inhibiting the growth of hair follicles. The topical cream or foam Minoxidil works by expanding the blood vessels in your scalp, therefore improving blood flow to the hair follicles. The treatments used in conjunction are an extremely effective way to boost the lasting results of the PRP procedure. 

The PRP hair restoration procedure has a quick recovery time so you can resume your busy life as soon as possible.

The Benefits of PRP Hair Restoration 

The all natural, safe, and convenient PRP hair restoration procedure has many regenerative benefits including thicker, stronger hair. According to various medical journals, studies found that these PRP injections reduced hair loss and increased the diameter of hair, as well as the density of hair growth, in participants. The end result will leave you with a fuller, natural-looking head of hair as seen below!

Who is a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?  

PRP is a beneficial treatment for most cases of male pattern baldness with some remaining hair follicles. If you are beginning to notice signs of hair loss, such as a receding hairline, it is important to take action immediately as the condition will only worsen with time as you continue to lose functioning hair follicles. 

Additionally, since genetics play a major role in hair loss, if you have a family history of thinning hair then it would be beneficial for you to start thinking about this procedure sooner rather than later. You may have accepted that one day you will begin to bald like your father and his father before that, but you do have the ability to prevent it. The earlier in the hair loss stage that PRP therapy is performed, the better the results will be. Don’t wait to get started!
