Promoting Hair Regrowth with PRP Injections in Toronto
Hair loss can be an embarrassing issue that affects men and women alike, and can leave you feeling helpless. Many available treatments, such as prescriptions drugs, are often ineffective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects. Surgical hair restoration can be expensive and does not treat underlying medical problems.
Fortunately, there is another option. Doctors are discovering the hair-thickening and regrowth benefits of PRP treatment. With PRP treatment, your growth factor and stem cells work together to wake up dormant hair follicles and kick them back into the growth stage. Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre is proud to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment in Toronto for hair loss. Read on to learn more about how it works.
How does PRP treatment for hair loss work?
First, a small amount of your blood is drawn and the red blood cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma via centrifugation. Next, the platelets are concentrated and drown up into a syringe. Finally, using a small needle, the platelets are injected strategically into your scalp in the areas that need improvement.
What are the benefits of PRP injections for hair regrowth?
The PRP decreases hair loss by boosting the blood supply to the follicle, thickening the hair shaft, and stimulating and sustaining the growth phase of the hair.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will depend on the individual’s needs. Initially, our provider may recommend several treatments spaced one month apart. After that, the area will be reassessed and the patient will be placed on a maintenance program.
How long does the procedure take?
Collecting the PRP only takes about 10 to 15 minutes, and the PRP treatment itself is very fast. It often takes 10 to 15 minutes as well.
Do the PRP injections hurt?
There may be some sensitivity following treatment. However, at Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre, we use effective anesthetic solutions to minimize any potential discomfort.
How long will recovery take?
There is no long recovery time with PRP treatment for hair regrowth. You may take a warm shower after the treatment. In addition, it is advised to avoid using any harsh dyes or chemical on your hair for at least 48 hours.
