PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has become a popular method of restoring hair growth. PRP therapy is a regenerative treatment that offers women and men a noninvasive way to stimulate hair regrowth by using the body's natural healing mechanisms. It has been used for decades in the medical community to help patients heal from sports-related injuries, such as torn ligaments, tendons, or pulled muscles. Today, its rise in popularity has become a new solution for hair loss as individuals are getting impressive PRP results with a fuller head of hair without surgery. Dr. Vu Ho performs the innovative Suneva® Medical HD PRP treatment in the Plano, TX office of Beyond Beautiful.

What are the causes of hair loss?

Men and women can experience hair loss or thinning hair. For men, receding hairlines, pattern baldness, or hair loss become more apparent as more hair follicles go dormant with age. As women get older, thinning hair or bald spots can be a byproduct of a genetic condition called androgenic alopecia or hormonal changes with menopause. PRP injections for hair loss can be an effective treatment for patients in North Dallas who struggle to restore hair loss and feel confident again about how they look.

What are six facts about PRP injections for hair loss?

1. A straightforward procedure

Whether you struggle with a receding hairline, pattern baldness or thinning hair, it can be an embarrassing issue for both women and men. PRP injections for hair loss are an effective nonsurgical hair restoration treatment, including how it works and what kind of PRP results patients can expect. After the target areas have been determined, the three-stage PRP therapy process is easy:

  • A blood sample is taken from the patient
  • The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma
  • The platelet-rich plasma is used for the PRP hair restoration process

2. Works for women

Women also struggle with bald spots or thinning hair. It is called androgenetic alopecia, or female pattern hair loss. PRP injections for hair loss can help Plano, TX women treat pattern baldness, which can be emotionally disabling as the condition worsens.

3. A quick, low-risk procedure

PRP injections using the Suneva Medical HD PRP treatment for hair loss are relatively quick and easy. Since a person's blood supply is the primary source for this hair restoration treatment, there is no risk of rejection or infection. The platelet-rich plasma is injected below the scalp into hair follicles, and most sessions take 20 minutes.

4. A precise treatment

The PRP injections for hair loss are administered with a microscopic needle. Microneedling can be done before injections to assist in prepping the target area to deliver the platelet-rich plasma to the scalp and hair follicles. PRP for hair loss injections provides dramatic results, so you no longer must feel self-conscious about your hair loss issue.

5. A noninvasive option

With the release of essential growth proteins, platelet-rich plasma injections can provide a nonsurgical hair restoration option for men and women seeking an alternative method. A patient's blood supply can stimulate new hair growth and accelerate the body's natural healing mechanism to the areas that are "damaged" without the need for hair grafting surgery.

6. Not for everyone

Individuals looking for hair loss treatments are not likely candidates if they are heavy drinkers, smokers, or on blood thinners. Other unlikely candidates are men and women dealing with life-threatening conditions or prone to infections. We will get your complete medical history background before any PRP injections for hair loss to make sure patients are viable candidates to get the best results.

My dark circles are not even noticeable - I have been going to Dr Ho for almost a year now and I am so pleased with my results !! I have done the Ez gel and exosome procedures for my dark circles to opt for a more natural approach before going into fillers and I have seen a drastic improvement ! My dark circles are not even noticeable. I am now in my late twenties and have been seeing a lot of changes in my face, one of which is dark circles. I was extremely insecure about them, all my life I never wore make up and I found I couldn’t leave the house without it. Thanks to Dr Ho I can confidently go out without make up. I am very selective and critical when it comes to procedures and my face. Dr Ho is someone I can trust !!! Thank you Dr Ho !
