Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is quickly becoming one of the most versatile uses for healing. Originating as a healing mechanism for bones and to speed up post-surgery recovery time, it has now turned a new leaf, to promote the growth and nourishment of hair follicles.
With this new wave of PRP desire reaching an all-time high, there are a few things that people should know to determine if this treatment is right for them. PRP is excellent for restimulating the hair follicle however, it will not regrow hair in an area where you have completely lost the hair follicle.
Having this treatment is meant to make the hair thicker, stronger, more nourished, and more abundant. People should not expect to grow a full head of hair if they are bald, the only thing to regrow hair in that area would be a hair transplant.
There are many people trying to sell PRP treatments but only one that delivers real results. Dr. Kahen's SMART PRP® is the only PRP on the market that can restimulate the hair follicles with just one treatment per year. Other practices have patients coming in for several sessions of PRP and not guaranteeing to see the result until after the third or fourth session. This is because the technology other practices are using is dated and will not deliver you the results that patients see at Beverly Hills Hair Restoration.
After determining if PRP treatments are right for you, do research on the practice you choose to have your treatment completed. Ensure that the before and after pictures are consistent and to your expectations. Be sure that you are going to a practice where the treatment delivers results after the first time!
