PRP HAIR RESTORATION

Hair loss can be attributed to a number reasons, whether it be hereditary, a side effect of medication, or aging, there’s one thing for certain: losing your head of hair can take a huge toll on your confidence. The good news is, with advancements in modern medicine, hair growth can be stimulated and strengthened naturally through the use of platelet-rich plasma, more commonly known as “PRP.”
PRP hair restoration at Elite MedSpa in Marion, Ohio is an all-natural treatment that is non-invasive and requires virtually no downtime! With our hair loss treatment, we are here to help you regain your confidence with stronger, and thicker hair regrowth.
What is a PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP – which stands for “Platelet-Rich Plasma” – is a natural tissue rejuvenation procedure that has been used in sports medicine and orthopedics to regenerate joints for more than a decade. This isolated portion of your blood contains natural healing properties and growth factors that make it a suitable treatment for hair loss.
By reallocating the PRP naturally found in your blood to the scalp, increased blood supply and blood flow is promoted to nourish the hair follicles, naturally healing hair growth overtime. As this stimulates your dormant hair follicles, they begin to grow hair again.
Non-surgical PRP hair restoration treats the root cause of hair loss on a cellular level – for fuller and thicker hair growth, particularly in balding and thinning areas of the head.
What is the PRP Hair Restoration Process?
A PRP Facial begins by extracting a small vial of the patient’s own blood from their arm – just like a routine blood test. A special centrifuge is then used to “spin” the blood and separate the fluid components from the red and white blood cells.
This fluid is called “platelet rich plasma” – or “PRP” – because it contains a high concentration of platelets. These platelets full of healing properties and growth factors are what stimulate the body’s natural cellular healing processes.
The separated plasma is then injected into the treatment areas of the scalp to stimulate healing in your scalp and ultimately hair regrowth. Our providers will work to create an individualized treatment plan based on the severity of your hair loss.

Does it hurt?
To ensure there is no discomfort or pain during the PRP hair restoration process, all of our patients are offered topical anesthetic. While most patients prefer to use this numbing cream during treatment, others feel they do not need it.
When will I see results?
Because PRP injections harness the body’s own natural healing and regeneration processes, it takes a few weeks for results to become visible. Results will continue to improve over the next few months, as the body continues to stimulate the damaged hair follicles.
A single treatment can yield great results for patients, however a series of 4 treatments is recommended in 4-week intervals. Maintenance treatments twice yearly are then recommended after to maintain the result.
Results vary on the severity of hair loss and each patient will have different needs, and may require another series after their initial treatments.
How much downtime is there with PRP injections?
There is no downtime associated with this treatment, however, you may initially feel pressure in the treated areas which should subside shortly after treatment. The healing process is easy and makes this an attractive option for patients who are worried of pain and recovery.
