Does PRP sound familiar? PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma has been around for quite some time. It is commonly used for joint rejuvenation, male enhancement and aesthetic procedures like face lifts.
What about hair loss? Hair loss can be caused by many factors in both men and women. Whether it is genetic or for medical reasons, no one likes the fact that they are losing hair. Now a days there are many options to help with hair loss. Some such as minoxidil or roGaine, laser therapy and even hair transplantation.
Did you know that now not only does PRP help with joints and aesthetic procedures, but now it is an option for hair loss as well. PRP is created from the patients own blood, it is placed in a centrifuge so that the plasma is separated. PRP stimulates the present hair to produce longer and stronger strands of hair. Local anesthetic is used to help minimize any pain and discomfort. The PRP is then injected to the areas that Dr. Bishara has recommended to be treated.
One of the good things about this treatment is there is no down time, you can resume regular activities the moment you leave our office. Some swelling may occur but it is not very common. PRP is a great option if surgery to preserve your existing hair and to support hair transplantation. A consultation with Dr. Mark A Bishara is all it takes to get started with hair loss prevention.
