Are you interested in PRP hair restoration? If you live in Brentwood, Franklin, Nashville or the surrounding cities in Tennessee, Dr. Lodge and the staff at Cool Springs MD will discuss the treatment methods available to you and help you make the right decision.
What is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration utilizes platelet-rich plasma, similar to other PRP rejuvenation procedures. PRP hair restoration is a non-surgical therapy method to proactively prevent hair loss. The PRP serum is injected into the areas of the scalp where you would like to stimulate more hair growth. A microneedling device might also be utilized to cause minimal trauma to promote recovery and improved results.
How Much Does PRP Hair Restoration Cost?
PRP hair restoration costs vary upon your individual needs and goals. We recommend that you schedule a one-on-one consultation to learn more about the procedure and pricing. Dr. Lodge and our staff will provide you with all the information you need to reach your aesthetic goals.
Am I a Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?
If you are a male or female and have been noticing worsening hair quality, decreasing hair volume, or other symptoms related to hair loss, PRP hair restoration might be a viable treatment option for you. Although it is effective and safe, we recommend that you obtain a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine whether or not this procedure is appropriate for your hair loss problems. There are conditions that are contraindicated for this therapy. Dr. Lodge and our staff can complete this for you and discuss alternative options if it is not recommended for you.
How is PRP Hair Restoration Performed?
PRP hair restoration uses plasma which is isolated from your blood. This plasma has a high level of platelets, and this serum is injected back into your scalp after it is slightly altered to increase the number of platelets. The scalp is numbed with a topical ointment and then injected while simultaneously using a scalp stimulator to confuse pain signals with pressure signals to further minimize discomfort. The injections may be followed with the use of a microneedling device to create small trauma on the scalp to further increase the efficacy of the procedure and stimulate hair growth. PRP is massaged into the scalp following the injections to enhance results.
What is Recovery Like After PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration sessions take around one to two hours. It can safely be used in addition to other hair restoration procedures. Immediately following the session, the scalp may appear red or even look like there are mosquito bites. After 10 minute, the scalp is level and may remain red. For most individuals, they may resume normal activities that same day, can shower that evening, and treatment is undetectable to the average observer.
How Long Will My PRP Hair Restoration Results Last?
PRP hair restoration results can last for many years, but it is recommended to obtain a series of multiple treatments every four months to achieve your desired results. The number of treatments necessary will vary depending on your individual needs and goals. Most practitioners recommend annual maintenance treatments to sustain results. PRP hair restoration is a great option for individuals who do not want to undergo surgery and experience negative side effects with traditionally used medications.
