Ask Cheryl | PRP Hair Loss Restoration

Woman brushing her hair

Q: I am a female and my hair is becoming very thin. My part gets wider every month and my hair is starting to shed. I am becoming very self-conscious.

A: Women and men of all ages can experience hair loss. My suggestion is PRP hair restoration. PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma, is a very effective and safe treatment to stimulate follicles to regrow and thicken hair. PRP is derived from your own blood, so it is a natural treatment.

Our blood is made of two main components, red blood cells, and plasma. The plasma, the PRP, contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors.

Here’s how it works: a small sample of your blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from your red blood cells. The PRP is then injected using a tiny needle into the areas in your scalp where your hair is thinning.

Results should be visible with two months of the first treatment, and several treatments are and periodic maintenance are recommended.
