PLASMA THERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS
- Posted on: Feb 21 2023
PLATELET RICH PLASMA is an innovative tool that may help promote and maintain hair growth on the scalp.
This treatment may be used to treat Androgenetic Alopecia ( AGA) which causes thinning and balding of the hair in both men and women.
Options for the treatment of this condition in the past have relied on both topical and oral medications. These treatments (oral Finasteride and Minoxidil) lack rapid benefit, may have unwanted side effects, and are best at preventing hair loss. Topical Minoxidil may be helpful in preventing further hair loss.
Plasma therapy for hair loss is a medical treatment that involves drawing the client’s blood, spinning it down to release platelet-rich plasma, and then injecting it into the scalp. The Plasma contains growth factors that are thought to increase blood supply to the hair follicle and increase the thickness of the hair shaft.
Clients usually will require 3 initial treatments performed at monthly intervals and then maintenance treatments every 4 to 6 months
Adding topical Minoxidil while you are doing treatments can be helpful.
This treatment is not suitable for smokers, people who are on blood thinners, or have certain medical disorders such as cancer, chronic liver disease, or a blood disorder.
Treatments typically cost $600 to $800 per treatment
It is essential to have your hair loss accurately diagnosed as Plasma Therapy will only treat conditions where the hair follicle is still active. Talk to your physician before considering Plasma Therapy as an option.
