WHAT IS PRP THERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS?
Hair loss is a major concern for many individuals, whether it is brought on by age, genetics, hormones, medical conditions, or from styling products or practices. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a state-of-the-art nonsurgical remedy that is showing remarkable benefits in slowing, stopping, and even reversing baldness. PRP has shown promising results in individuals with alopecia areata and thinning hair. At Imber Medical, Dr. Laura Slack offers revolutionary PRP therapy for men and women in St. Simons Island, GA.

HOW DOES PRP HAIR THERAPY WORK?
Any person experiencing hair loss is likely a candidate for PRP hair therapy while patients with early hair loss typically yield the best results. PRP therapy is an in-office treatment that begins with obtaining a blood sample and placing it in a special machine to separate the platelets from the other components. Next, a local anesthetic is administered to your scalp and the platelet-rich plasma is introduced into thinning or balding portions of your head. Finally, microneedling is performed on the scalp, which helps the PRP to penetrate into the skin. Following your session, you should not experience downtime. You may develop some mild swelling and tenderness in the treated areas, which should resolve after about two days. Outcomes can typically be noticed about 4 – 6 months after the initial treatment and may continue to improve for up to a year.
