Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration | El Paso Medical SpaPlatelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is a revolutionary new procedure for hair restoration in a minimally invasive manner. This non-surgical procedure has a proven record of high potential in hair growth by making use of the body’s natural growth factors for rejuvenating damaged hair follicles. 

Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez, provides platelet rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration therapy for increasing hair thickness and overall hair growth to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding communities. 

Understanding PRP Hair Restoration

For the longest time, researchers believed that hair follicles that couldn’t produce any more hair were dead. However, recent studies indicate that these unproductive hair follicles may only be injured, damaged or dormant. The follicles can be rejuvenated for regrowing hair. PRP hair restoration helps patients accomplish this. 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is naturally found in the body. There are powerful growth factors in this plasma. These growth factors will be injected by the healthcare provider into impacted scalp areas for activating the dead adult stem cells in hair follicles. The growth factors develop new blood vessels and regenerate localized cells for revitalizing hair follicles at the same time. 

People that Can Benefit from PRP Injections

  • Adults suffering from hair thinning and hair loss conditions
  • Men and women suffering from alopecia, including androgenic alopecia (also called male/female pattern baldness)

Procedure for PRP Treatment

A small amount of blood will be taken by the PRP treatment provider. This will be processed in a centrifugal system for separating the PRP and rejuvenating growth factors present within it. The treatment provider will first apply a topical anesthetic at the treatment area when the PRP is ready for injection. 

The PRP will be injected into those regions which have suffered the most hair loss. A very fine gauge needle will be used for injecting the PRP within the matrix pattern. You can consider PRP hair restoration with a low-level laser therapy for improving the results. 

Advanced Treatment Techniques

Outcomes of PRP injectable treatments are improving constantly as hair growth techniques involving PRP are further developing and becoming more advanced. Multiple PRP treatment sessions are recommended by experts for improving the treatment effectiveness. The therapy can also help in enhancing survival rate of hair grafts when used during or before a hair transplant procedure. 

Types of Treatable Hair Loss 

You can achieve excellent results by PRP for hair restoration if they are because of the following medical conditions:

  • Female Pattern Hair Loss
  • Male Pattern Hair Loss
  • Alopecia Areata
  • Hypotrichosis
  • Alopecia Totalis
  • Hair loss because of metabolic conditions, iron deficiency, and drug side-effects

Outcome of PRP Hair Re-growth Treatment

PRP hair restoration therapy, in most cases, offers significant hair growth enhancement and growth. It’s particularly useful in enhancing hair thickness, density, and elasticity. The initial results of the procedure will become noticeable within 6 – 8 weeks of the first sessions. 

Full results may take up to 12 months to become noticeable after the first treatment session. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez of the Envy Aesthetic Center receives patients from El Paso, TX, and nearby areas for platelet rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration injection therapy to increase hair thickness and overall hair growth.
